What to see in Ambleside?

Pack your walking boots and prepare to explore the great outdoors in this natural paradise. Located at the top of Windermere Lake, an outdoor swim or a boat ride are both a must for the agenda. There are a variety of boats and the famous cruise liner on the lake, and excellent local ice-cream to enjoy afterwards at one of the many cafes with outdoor terraces. Go and see Hill Top, Beatrix Potter's house, skim stones at Lake Grasmere and admire the scenery at the Tudor cottage of Rydal Mount and its landscaped gardens. Tourists also book a hotel in the area to take advantage of the excellent restaurants and gastropubs, or to relax in spa facilities after a hard day of biking, walking, running, horse-riding or other outdoor pursuits. Peruse the local independent stores, wander around an antique book shop, stop for a pint or a coffee at a local pub or cafe and head to local points of interest such as the hamlets of Grasmere, Langdale, Elterwater and Skelwith. 

Where to stay in Ambleside?

This part of the Lake District is a huge tourist attraction, so it's important to book a local hotel well in advance if you are planning to travel at peak times, or if you are travelling as part of a group. Ambleside itself has plenty of visitor accommodation, ranging from luxurious spa hotels through to cosy B'n'Bs and independent boutique hotels, but demand can be high and deals are snapped up fast. Look for hotels in Ambleside with highly-regarded restaurants and easy access to local facilities. Hotels with a view are also hotly in demand. If you book a hotel in Ambleside itself, you will be in walking distance of attractions such as Ambleside climbing wall, Grizedale Visitor Centre, Esthwaite Trout Fishery and the Zefferellis Cinema. If you are struggling to book a hotel in Ambleside itself - perhaps because you are travelling at peak holiday times such as the summer break - then try surrounding areas, including Windermere, Grizedale, Hawkshead, Kendal or around Scafell Pike. If you don't drive, there are various accommodations on offer near local train stations, such as Oxenholme, which is a good spot for Kendal. There are also various driving tours on offer from local companies, as well as coach tours, so get picked up from your hotel and experience the area to the fullest.
