Just had a lovely weekend in Ambleside. First time in this lovely village, and definitely not the last. We stayed in the excellent Walmar B&B, which was perfect location and not horrifically expensive. The weather was very changeable. On Friday’s walk the visibility was very poor; but on Saturday it was gorgeous sunshine all day.
Getting to Ambleside is super-easy as it’s on both the 555 and 599 bus services – so four buses an hour from Windermere. This makes it possible to travel up from work and arrive just in time for a (late) dinner.
A couple of the fells closest to Ambleside were tackled over the weekend. There were plans to do something a bit ambitious, but the weather conditions (low cloud and hot, hot heat) meant that Plan B had to come into play.
