The beautiful town of Ambleside on the shores of Windermere in the heart of the Lake District is a must for lovers of the great outdoors. Surrounded by spectacular Cumbrian crags and fells, it makes the ideal base for exploring the natural beauty of the Lakes.

Whether you're after an action-packed mini break or a tranquil weekend getaway, there are a wealth of things to do in Ambleside and the surrounding area, from unrivalled walking routes and invigorating hikes to gentle, lakeside strolls.

The local shops, pubs and eateries in this vibrant, little town mean you'll have everything you could possibly need on your short break whilst you immerse yourself in the surrounding landscape.

Discover the Lakes on an Ambleside short break

Keep an eye out for the curious and quirky site of Bridge House, a 17th-century dwelling with a fascinating history, built on top of a little bridge across the babbling waters of Stock Beck.

Delve even deeper into the town's past with a trip to the Armitt Museum & Library, where you'll discover the Roman history of the area, as well as glimpsing a remarkable collection of artworks - including original watercolours by the author, Beatrix Potter.

Imagine unwinding in your cosy cottage, after a day of exciting Ambleside adventures. Bliss!
