Welcome to Ambleside
Situated Near Windermere, the largest natural lake in England, Ambleside is a small town in the heart of Cumbria. While records of the settlement go back to the Roman occupation of Britain, the town was mostly developed in the Victorian era. Though it remains a quaint, often overlooked settlement, many famous names from British history have lived and worked here, including William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter.
