Ambleside is situated at the northern end of Lake Windermere surrounded by picturesque scenery such as Loughrigg Fell, the Red Screes and Wansfell. It is a popular base for hikers and mountain bikers and offers a good selection of shops and restaurants. One of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District is in Ambleside â€“ the tiny, two room Bridge House which was built over Stock Beck more than 300 years ago.
DID YOU KNOW ?
Legend has it that at one time a family with 6 children lived in Bridge House. It was built over Stock Beck in order to avoid land tax.
The Romans built a fort here (dating back to AD79) in order to defend south Lakeland from invasion by the Picts and Scots. It housed some 500 soldiers.
William Wordsworth had an office in Ambleside when he was Collector of Stamps for Westmorland.
Kurt Schwitters moved to Ambleside at the end of the Second World War, having left Germany and been interned on the Isle of Man in 1940.
THINGS TO DO
There’s no shortage of things to do in Ambleside. It’s a great starting point for walking and mountain biking. You can take a ferry to Bowness or even to Lakeside at the southern end of Lake Windermere. There are plenty of pubs and restaurants, as well as shops, including the UK’s largest independent outdoor equipment store, Gaynor Sports. There’s also the Armitt Museum, an important resource for information on Ambleside and Lake District in general, and the people who have helped shape it into what it is today. Or take a walk up to Stock Ghyll Force, a spectacular 70ft waterfall.
We booked the Ambleside suite for our 1st anniversary and were not disappointed. We arrived ahead of check-in time and were shown to our suite straight away. The room was set out beautifully, with fairy lights twinkling on the headboard, rose petals on the bed and some luxury chocolates for us to enjoy. The bathroom was equally prepared with the mood lighting on to create a lovely atmosphere. Both rooms were spotless and the decor was flawless. Quirky features like your own entrance (space for the car directly opposite) and the food hatch for room service made this very much an ideal break for couples who wish to get away from everything and everyone. Also the walk in wardrobe complete with mini bar was a great addition so all our luggage could be stored away from sight and there was plenty of room for laying out clothes/getting dressed/making tea etc. The patio area was just lovely for chilling in the sunshine with a glass of fizz too!
Absolutely fantastic suites!
We stayed here for 1 night for my husbands 40th birthday recently (Ambleside suite) and all I can say is wow wow wow!!! Absolutely amazing room, I was blown away from the moment I entered the room, it’s so opulent and luxuriously furnished, and finished to a very, very high standard with extremely high quality furniture. I got some fantastic photographs (that I can’t stop looking at) thanks to the luxurious settings they are perfect for enlarging and framing. Everything was absolutely perfect, even the colour-changing bathroom mirror was amazing and the tap with LED lights!! We both slept really well in the silver leaf 'fit for royalty' huge bed and have to say it was soooo so comfy! And then finally, we have breakfast...served at a time to suit, it is the most amazing breakfast (more like a banquet) to start the day with and being served through a private serving hatch was the icing on the cake for us. If you are thinking of staying at Windermere Suites, please book it, I have absolute confidence you will not be disappointed at all.
Superb in every way
Total luxury - we were in the Ambleside suite and it was fantastic. Stylish decor throughout and fabulous facilities like the spa bath and double shower. And the food hatch is a brilliant idea. The food was really good and there was a generous breakfast. Suites are well worth it for a special treat.
