A holiday to Remember

We provide such diversity that each experience of the Wateredge is unique. Whether you are an adventurous spirit looking for an action packed holiday in The Lakes, a family looking for some great entertainment and outdoor fun, or an escapist searching for relaxation. With our central location and breathtaking views, we have it all. 

Our food is always made with fresh local ingredients, which means we can provide the best seasonal food available cooked by our wonderful head chef and his experienced kitchen team.

  • What to expect

    We offer everything you should expect from a Lakeland Country Inn - comfy beds, great food and drink, and a range of room types.

    Words and pictures cannot describe the views from Wateredge, they simply have to be experienced.

Our History

The Wateredge buildings were originally fisherman's cottages, dating back to the 17th Century. We try to maintain a sense of this history within our Inn and never forget its heritage; sitting in one of our rooms with the fire crackling and light flickering over the oak beams, you can still get a sense of what life would have been like for these Lakeland folk.

As the fishing and game trade grew busier, produce from Windermere and the surrounding area would be sent out to markets and stately homes across the region. And with the Ambleside area becoming more and more popular, the cottages were converted into an inn to provide refuge for travellers and merchants.

We are all for keeping up traditions, and The Wateredge has been in our family for over 30 years! The Lake District has always been a popular tourist destination, with Wordsworth remarking on its beauty back in the 18th century. Hospitality is in our blood, and our family continues to deliver great service, food and accommodation. 

Having been hit heavily with floods in 2009 and 2015, we took the opportunity to renovate our bar and dining area. Whilst still maintaining many original features
and classic lakeland charm to bring a modern-retro look we are very proud of!
