  • Beautiful Lake with various activities and travels from Ambleside, Bowness, or Lakeside with wonderful places to enjoy
    View original
  • A beautiful place to visit even in winter with friends or solo, and Ambleside is only a short bus trip away with it's breathtaking waterfalls and magnificent scenery... 
  • Took a boat trip around lake Windermere, good value with knowledgable commentary given. There were several types of trips to choose from, which also included entrance to other venues.
