Ambleside Hotel & Guest Accommodation

Want to stay in Ambleside?

Let TouristNet UK help you find the right accommodation for your night(s) stay.



An old market town whose charter was granted in 1650, Ambleside is one of Lakeland’s tourist hotspots. It first became popular in the 19th century when new-fangled railways sparked a travelling boom.

The poet William Wordsworth worked here as the Distributor of Stamps for Westmorland. There is a Wordsworth chapel at St. Mary's Church and nearby is Rydal House where he once taught. Another literary figure, Mrs Hemans ('the boy stood on a burning deck’) lived at 'Dove Nest’ in the 19th century. The poet and critic Matthew Arnold also lived here.

A number of 17th century buildings, including a watermill, give the town an air of historic importance. The Bridge House, now a National Trust information centre, is an interesting folly spanning the beck of Stock Ghyll. The town also has a medieval rush-bearing ceremony at St. Mary's Church each July.
