Including Hotels & Guest Houses in the Lake District.
Ambleside is a major town on the shores of Lake Windermere and a Mecca for walkers, ramblers, mountaineers
and climbers of ages, as well as for weekenders taking in the clean English Lake District air and seeking comfortable accommodation. It has plenty of hotels and guest houses of all sizes and descriptions, though early booking in summertime is essential owing to its popularity as a base for Lake District tourism. Also, remember that there are
lakes here simply because it frequently rains (sic).

a short stroll from the centre of the village of Ambleside and Lake Windermere at Waterhead.
