The England region

Ambleside is a friendly lively market town in the heart of the Lake District National Park. Here you will find exclusive shops, top notch restaurants,traditional pubs with open fires,cinemas, tennis, crazy golf, bike hire, tourist board, the Armitt museums,steamer on lake with cruises, waterfall, Roman remains etc etc A fantastic place for a hiking holiday or relaxing with a bit of culture me time!

Surprisingly, it is often sunny up here when raining down south & even if cloudy you can head to the hills and warm yourself with a bit of exercise - then enjoy a hot soup or a glass of something from your backpack..Christmas lights, spring flower festival,live jazz nights etc etc
