Ambleside is best known for its accessibility to some of the best walking trails and viewpoints the Lake District can offer, but there is even more to Ambleside than wonderful views and fells. The small town is very picturesque itself with many unique streets and ginnels that boast an eclectic mix of fabulous cafes and independent shops. It is the perfect place to find a special Christmas gift. Here’s a few of our favourite shops that are certainly worth a visit during your stay with us.
Rush is a clothing shop in the centre of Ambleside that offers a great mix of womens, menswear and accessories. They have a range of top brands including White Stuff, Sea Salt Cornwall and French Connection. Open 7 days a week, and with such great brands and friendly staff you are bound to find what you are looking for.
Bath House offer a gorgeous selection of high end fragrances, body care, home scents and gifts for both men and women. Just round the corner from Rush, this store will make you want everything in it! All the products are beautifully displayed and wrapped - perfect for a gift. What makes it even better, is that the majority of their products are produced and sourced locally.
