We’re lucky enough to be able to experience the ambience and beauty of the Lake District everyday, and as such, we have gained a real appreciation for everything it has to offer. But for those of you experiencing the Lakes for the first time, a huge question might be “where do I start?”
We are situated in the Heart of the Lake District in the town of Ambleside, well known for it’s gorgeous surrounding scenery and recently, for having the most walking routes out of all towns and cities in the UK (2,731 routes)! Whether you’re interested in a brisk and easy stroll along Waterhead Bay or a more challenging trek to Troutbeck and back, there’s bound to be a route best suited to you!
A Step Back in Time
There is plenty to learn about the history of the Lake District, and with a range of museums at our fingertips, it couldn’t be easier! Discover what inspired writers like William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter at the nearby attractions of the wonderful Wordsworth Museum and The World of Beatrix Potter, both just a short distance away. Or take an even further step back in time and visit Ambleside’s own Roman Fort!
The Lakes have a bounty of attractions to keep you entertained! And we’d be more than happy to give you more information on what you could be up to. Visit our Things To Do page for even more inspiration, or contact us here.
