The hotel is just a gentle walk from the picturesque village of Ambleside. From our front door you can walk the fells, cruise England's largest lake, explore the Roman fort in Borrans Park, and enjoy Ambleside’s amazing array of outdoor shops, cafés and restaurants.

We are located in Waterhead Bay, Ambleside - an incredibly picturesque and popular area situated at the north of Lake Windermere in the Lake District, just one mile from the centre of Ambleside village

The bay is surrounded by traditional Lakeland slate houses, hotels, restaurants & cafés, and is a bustling destination for those hiring a rowing boat, catching a lake cruise or feeding the ducks!

The views from the bay are stunning, stretching across the lake to the Langdale Pikes and beyond. And a short walk round the head of the beautiful bay is Borrans Park in which you can enjoy a picnic or examine the remains of the Roman Fort of Galava.

In an area where we are spoilt for choice for great views, great activities and fantastic local produce, Waterhead Bay stands out for encapsulating all of those things.
