Ambleside is a beautiful market town. Situated on Lake Windermere, it offers a whole array of activities. You can cruise the lake on a steamer, go canoeing, yachting, rowing, fishing, sailing and do various other watersports. Ambleside has lots of shops, cafes and restaurants. For italian food visit Dodds restaurant, for chinese takeaway the Lucky Dragon is the best, there are 2 Thai restaurants and they are both excellent. Lucy4s is great, it has tapas, perfect for sharing. Lucys on a plate is also delightful, as is The Glass House.
