Ambleside holiday accommodation is located in a picturesque town at the northern tip of the iconic lake, Windermere, in England’s Lake District National Park. This area is regarded as one of the most scenic in the whole country, with dramatic hills, sparkling lakes and forests all ready to be explored. There’s a great range of activities on offer for your stay at an Ambleside cottage; here you can take long, scenic walks, go mountain biking, horse-riding, fishing, hot-air ballooning, or simply enjoy the fireside at one of the area’s many cosy pubs. There are also plenty of historical sites to visit, not far from your Ambleside self-catering accommodation. Locally, the remnants of a Roman fort can be seen just outside the town, while 17th Century copper mines are dotted around the area. Windermere also offers all kinds of water-based fun for visitors to Ambleside farmhouses, with boat hire available at a number of points around its shores. A more laid-back way to experience the lake is to take a cruise, which lets you sit back and admire the stunning scenery. Other activities on Windermere include canoeing, power-boating and sailing. Many people head to Ambleside self-catering cottages to enjoy the natural splendour of the area – Windermere provides a temporary yearly habitat for a number of birds that cannot be found anywhere else in the country. Meanwhile, if you keep your eyes peeled then the chances are that you’ll spot an otter from the banks of the rivers here. Energetic visitors to Ambleside holiday cottages will be pleased to learn that some of the park’s most challenging walks can be picked up just outside the town. Weather in Ambleside At Ambleside farmhouses you can expect pleasant temperatures in summer and relatively mild weather in winter. Whenever you visit, it’s always helpful to pack waterproofs if you’re heading for the Lake District. Best Time to Visit Ambleside The summer is a great time to head for an Ambleside holiday home, as this is when you’re more likely to get the clear days you’ll need to enjoy the spectacular scenery atop the local pikes. Reaching Ambleside The closest international airport to Ambleside self-catering farmhouses and cottages is in Manchester (MAN), about 90 minutes by car.
