Region: Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination. Town: Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. Apart from the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th Century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.More
