About this location

The Lake District

Ambleside is at the centre of the Lake District National Park, and our dormer bungalow is very close to the centre of Ambleside, so it's very convenient to explore the beauty of the Lake District's fells and lakes from here, north, south, east and west.

You can walk from the door on several circuits:e.g. High Sweden Bridge 90 minutes, Todd Crag with lovely views over the lake 90 minutes, Wansfell Pike to Troutbeck and return via Jenkins Crag 3 hours, Grasmere via Rydal park and Rydal Water 4 hours, Fairfield Horseshoe 6 hours.

There are several stately homes for a day trip out including Muncaster Castle, Levens Hall, Sizergh Castle. Holehird gardens (near Windermere) run by Lakeland Horticultural Society are always beautiful, with free entry (donations welcomed!). Keswick's Theatre by the Lake, Pencil Museum, and Museum of Illusions are only 30 minutes drive


Take a boat trip from Waterhead (20 minutes walk) over to Wray Castle, then Brockhole and disembark at each for a stroll by the lake shore. Brockhole has good childrens' play area too and cafe.

You can take longer boat trips from Waterhead, Ambleside to Bowness and the southern end of the lake.

You can also take boat trips on the steam driven Gondola on Coniston, and on feriies which run from Glenridding on Ulswater over to Howtown for a 4 hour walk back, or to Pooley Bridge.

The park in Ambleside has a good childerns' play area

If it's wet use the playbarn in Ambleside to amuse your children, or visit Zeffirelli's 5 screen cinema.
