A charming holiday retreat within a 5-minute walk of Ambleside
Step out of the gorgeous Gingersnap Cottage and with a 5-minute walk downhill, you’ll be in the very heart of Ambleside and amongst all the sights and attractions that this ever-popular village has to offer. Walk 5 minutes uphill and you’ll find yourself on the glorious Lakeland Fells amidst the freshest air, stunning scenery, peace and tranquillity – apart from the odd Herdwick that is.
Ambleside is THE place to purchase your new hiking gear, renowned retailers offering great advice on the latest products. Packed with independent shops and mini-supermarkets, you’ll also find traditional, friendly pubs, quaint tea rooms and a fantastic array of restaurants to suit all pockets and palates, most catering well for vegetarian and vegan diets.
Families will revel in the great activities available for the kids; pitch and putt, tennis, even an indoor climbing wall. Two cinemas offer regular screenings of the latest blockbuster so why not head to Zeffirelli’s towards the end of your day and take in a family meal deal, movie included?
