about Ambleside


Ambleside is ideally located in the centre of the Lake District. The town is situated at the North end of Windermere Lake and at the foot of the poular scenic route over Kirkstone Pass. It's location and idyllic scenery make it an ideal base for visitors to explore the national park.

The tourist information centre is in the heart of the town, and there is a regular bus service. Ambleside has great walks on the doorstep including Wansfell and the Langdales, you can also explore Windermere lake from Waterhead on a cruise.  This history of the town and it's heritage make for interesting reading. Did you know it is thought that Ambleside may have been named after a Norseman called Amal (i.e. Amal's saeter - or summer pasture)?

The variety of accommodation from lakeside hotels to small family run b&bs, campsites overlooking the lake and self- catering cottages is excellent. There is also plenty to see and do and lots of great places to eat.
