Sat on the northern tip of popular Lake Windermere, Ambleside is a pretty little town enveloped by lush green fells and huge skies. Filled with a cluster of traditional lake district cottages and cosy pubs to settle into after a day’s hill-walking, this classic Lakelands spot is the perfect base for an intrepid English holiday.

Holidays in the Lake District The Lakes draw mountain lovers from all over the world. From those looking to amble slowly under trees on ancient public footpaths to those who race to perch on top of the Scafell Pike, there’s a Lake District holiday for all. For the seasoned hiker in search of solitude, Buttermere is a land of fairy-tales hidden through a winding valley of rolling fells which open onto a world of adventurous possibility, and ice-cream so good it’s impossible to resist in a blizzard. Beyond is England’s highest point of Scafell Pike where hikers can almost touch the sky on just a day’s ramble. Meanwhile, Beatrix Potter country has a gentler landscape, with farmland and cottage gardens meeting together in seamless harmony, disturbed only by the occasional bleating of a rogue sheep.

Luxury Holidays on Lake Windermere Merely mentioning Lake Windermere conjures up images of summer holidays spent sailing across flat water, of chilled white wine sipped in front of mountain sunsets and long strolls in the hills. Lake District adventures demand great relaxation, so grab a blanket and watch the stars rise above the mirrored lake on your own privet jetty, or snuggle down by a roaring fire with a good book and a full-bodied bottle of red.
