visit ambleside & troutbeck
Ambleside is in the very heart of the Lake District. At the head of Windermere and the foot of Kirkstone Pass. It is an ideal base to explore the lakes.
Take a cruise on the lake from Waterhead. Enjoy an evening at the cinema at Zeffirellis, you can also dine in their vegetarian restaurant, just one of many great places to eat.
Ambleside has great walks on the doorstep including Wansfell and the Langdales. The variety of accommodation from lakeside hotels to small family run b&bs, campsites overlooking the lake and self catering cottages is excellent. read more
