The perfect spots to immerse yourself in the Lakes…

By Wateredge Inn

Now, we could be biased here and tell you that the best spot to bathe in these glorious rays is right at the end of our beer garden with your toes dipping in the cool lake… But that’s just our favourite spot! You cannot deny the splendour of the Lake District, and the wondrous views it has to boast around every corner, that’s why we put together a blog, so we can suggest the perfect places for you to soak up all the marvelous sunshine whilst you take in the picturesque surroundings the Lakes have to offer…

First on our list is a strikingly stunning trail that starts off in our very own Ambleside and takes you over Wansfell Pike to Troutbeck and back! This route will initially take you towards the charming little village of Troutbeck, past Jenkins Crag’. Once you’ve made it past Troutbeck, the walk will take you over towards Wansfell Pike - our favourite part! When traveling over Wansfell, you can expect to be treated with views over Lake Windermere unlike any you’ve seen before. Interested in this particular trail? Find further directions on the National Trust website here.

Less so a trail, but rather a wonderful destination that is perfect for spending some quality time with those you love, Borrans Park! Just next door to us at the Wateredge Inn, Borrans Park is perfect for a picnic and kick-around with the family, or if you fancy something a little more relaxed, you can post yourself up on one of the benches overlooking the beautiful lake. Borrans Park is also situated right next to Ambleside’s very own Roman Fort, or rather the remains of one… Either way, we think it’s a fantastic little location with a lot of history!

Now… If we’re talking about dazzling spots to spend some quality time with your loved ones around Ambleside, it’s only fair we give mention to Waterhead Bay. Overlooking the spectacular Lake Windermere, Waterhead Bay proves to be a fabulous locale for romantic walks, and scenic day-trips alike, and with its numerous collection of jetties and benches overlooking the lake, you will have plenty of opportunities to simply relax and soak it all in…

We understand it’s impossible to get enough of the remarkable views the area has been blessed with, so we invite you to finish off your adventure with us in the Wateredge Inn. Whether you’re sat at the water’s edge, or relaxing inside, the views over the lake are nothing short of incredible.
