We stayed at Cambridge Villas for a week during our visit to the Lakes. Situated right in the heart of Ambleside, it's location is perfect: pubs and restaurants just up the road, whilst the mountains are always visible in the distance - stunning location. Ambleside is also right by Windermere Lake too, and a great base for the Lake District.... More

We stayed here on our Coast to Coast cycle route and received a very friendly welcome, great hearty breakfasts and comfortable rooms. We also were grateful for the secure bike storage. A shame we were only travelling through!
