Standing across from the famous Waterhead Pier on Windermere, The Waterhead Inn at Ambleside has views to die for. Glistening beneath the gaze of the Lakeland fells, Windermere is a walker’s paradise. And what better way to unwind after a day on the mountains than at one of the coolest inns in Ambleside.
From The Waterhead Inn it’s just a gentle stroll to the centre of Ambleside where you can browse the gifts shops or take a walk up to Stock Ghyll Force waterfall. But the main event is an al fresco lunch at the inn’s terrace garden where you can tuck into homemade dishes and indulge in a local cask ale or a speciality gin. The Chef sources local produce to create hearty classics and more refined dishes that can be enjoyed in the elegance of the dining room.
Because of its central location, The Waterhead Inn is one of the best places to stay in Ambleside overnight so you can make the most of your trip to the Lake District. Each of the rooms is beautifully designed, but it’s the lake view rooms that steal the show. If you really want to push the boat out, book one of the rooms that has a private balcony where you can sit and watch the steamers go by.
Dog Friendly Accommodation at The Waterhead Inn at Ambleside
The Waterhead Inn at Ambleside loves to welcome muddy paws. The national park is jam packed with walking trails so it’s only right that your dog gets to enjoy exploring with you, and it’s even better when you know they’ll be welcomed back at the inn. As well as providing dog friendly rooms, they even allow your dog to sit with you while you dine. Smiling faces and wagging tails all round!
