Autumnal view across the park from lodge window. White Cross Bay Leisure Park is located alongside Lake Windermere itself, about two miles north of the town. The park is described, quite justifably, as: "the most idyllic and scenic holiday location in the heart of the Lake District"

The newly built multisports area is, unsurprisingly, well used:

There is an extensive woodland area inhabited by deer - but also available for guests to explore and enjoy...and for dog walking.
It's covered with Bluebells during May, when it is arguably at its most beautiful

Stock Ghyll Force
A 10 - 15 minute walk from Ambleside (along well kept paths) will take you to Stock Ghyll Force Waterfall.
It's not always quite so full, but always impressive!

Loughrigg Fell (looking North over Grasmere)
Loughrigg Fell is easy to reach from Ambleside. And you don't even need to get to the top as there are some wonderful views from the South looking back over Lake Windermere towards White Cross Bay.
It's a great fell to explore for beginners and hardened walkers alike!!
