Ambleside bed and breakfast & hotel accommodation

Visit Ambleside Cumbria and the surrounding villages and stay in B&B, hotel or self-catering accommodation provided by BedPosts members.

Ambleside in Cumbria is a popular tourist destination at the centre of the Lake District National Park, and is always crowded with walkers. Ambleside is within 1 mile of Lake Windermere and provides excellent walking: Loughrigg Fell (1099 ft) and Jenkin Crag for Views, for ascents of Wansfell Pike (1,587 ft.) and for touring the Langdales.

Among many delightful fellside walks around Ambleside is one to Stockghyll Force a beautiful waterfall set among woods 1 mile to the east. The route is signposted behind the Salutation Inn at the centre of the town. From Waterhead, just south, boat trips can be taken on Lake Windermere, including trips along the full length of the lake to Lake Side in the south.

It is well worth stopping and taking a photo of Bridge House in Ambleside, a 17th century rough-stone structure built as a summer-house, now a National Trust information centre and shop.

Every July the 19th-century Church of St Mary the Virgin observes the custom of rush-bearing when children parade through the streets carrying rushes and flowers a tradition handed down from the Middle Ages when rushes were used as carpets in churches.

The extensive Roman fort of Galava, at Borrans Field at the head of the lake, shows signs of having been rebuilt after flooding.

The Armitt Library and Museum.
