Holidays in the Lake District

Ambleside is a delightful Lake District town situated at the northern end of Windermere and makes a wonderful base for enjoying a relaxing short break. There’s a range of self-catering properties available for a Windermere short break, offering welcoming accommodation including stylish lodges, spacious apartments, picturesque stone cottages and traditional farmhouses, all ideal for hosting weekend breaks. Ambleside is within 20 miles of Ullswater, Buttermere, Coniston Water and Derwentwater, making it perfect for couples seeking a romantic retreat, or families or friends looking for a beautiful base for exploring the heart of the Lake District. Also nearby are the mountains of Helvellyn and Red Screes, making this a great destination for keen climbers and walkers, and there are also plenty of opportunities for water sports enthusiasts and nature lovers.

For visitors enjoying a weekend break, Ambleside has plenty to offer including an array of independent shops, welcoming pubs and great restaurants as well as a popular cinema which doubles as a jazz club and restaurant. Local attractions include the dramatic Stock Ghyll Force waterfall, the 17th-century Bridge House, Wray Castle, Stagshaw Gardens, the Armitt Museum and the remains of the Galava Roman Fort. Local water sports include kayaking, wakeboarding, sailing and fishing. During the summer, you can take a trip by horse-drawn carriage to Waterhead Pier. You can also take a boat trip across Windermere or head to the Lake District National Park Visitor Centre at Brockhole which offers a variety of activities including archery, a tree-top trek and laser clay shooting.
