  • came here from Bowness on the wlc cruise boat. It has nice walks to gently stroll arond and many hotels to visit and cafes. There is a large yha overlooking the lake and various boats to hire.There is...  more »
  • A good place to admire Lake Windermere, catch a lake steamer, do a little shopping or just eat. Too cold for people watching at the moment.  more »
  • Waterhead is a nice little village to wander through on the lake edge, but there isn't a huge amount to see or do here. Probably the best thing about the place is the YHA, and it's a good spot on the ...  more »

  • Very nice and picturesque, good and cheap parking..
  • Great little trip across the Windermere. You can gotl from ambleside to burness on Windermere and all the way down to lakeside. The trip from ambleside to burness is about 30 minutes. From ambleside to lakeside is about 90 minutes. Can't remember the exact price from ambleside to burness but I think it was about £13 per adult. Great day out and our little one thoroughly enjoyed it. If you have a pram there are dedicated ferry's with a ramp these do not run as often as the others but are still pretty frequent.
  • Nice food great service lovely view
  • Make sure you leave enough time to actually visit Ambleside because unlike Bowness it's about a mile walk from the ferry landing. We made the mistake of only having the time between the ferry we got off and the next one, and there's not that much to do at the actual ferry landing itself.
  • Lovely place for a walk, and enjoying wonderful lake views. Get the family all cruise tickets which get you 24 hours to enjoy all cruises- yellow, blue, red and green. The fell walk cruise is limited to summer only
