Holiday cottages in Ambleside get snapped up fast thanks to the town’s position on the shores of Lake Windermere and its routes from Waterhead Pier to Bowness and Lakeside. From Roman roots, to famous authors, poets and artists, spectacular waterfalls and many an excuse to use your National Trust membership, the appeal of a self-catering holiday in Ambleside is clear.
A Lake Windermere walk and picnic promises hearty exercise and epic views, while the lake itself is a natural draw for kayak or canoe enthusiasts (and first timers). Stay in Ambleside for a week to make the most of your holiday accommodation as well as the 18 islands that Lake Windermere has to explore. Use your Ambleside holiday house as a base for exploring the Rydal and Grasmere valleys, or hiking the Langdale Valley mountain ranges. Lake District self-catering doesn’t mean cooking every meal - England’s third highest pub, Kirkstone Pass Inn, is nearby. Settle in for an outdoors adventure from one of our gorgeous Ambleside holiday rentals.
