Ambleside nestles in the very heart of the Lake District, at the head of Windermere lake. Characterful Ambleside is a gateway to Great Langdale, a valley known for its dramatic landscapes and towering pikes and fells.

Ambleside itself is a charming old town of stone-built cottages and a network of delightful shops, restaurants, tea rooms and pubs. The eager explorer will find many things to do in Ambleside. You will be spoilt for choice with many fantastic locations waiting to be discovered around you.
