Wateredge Inn stands on the shores of Lake Windermere, a short walk from Ambleside centre. Set across two former 17th century fishermen's cottages, it offers cosy bedrooms and period features.

The individual bedrooms each have an en-suite bathroom and tea and coffee facilities. Rooms also have a flat-screen TV, hairdryer, and a comfortable seating area. Many rooms feature lake views and some have lake view balconies or garden patios.

A traditional full English breakfast is served daily. The popular bar and restaurant serves seasonal local produce and local real ales. Guests can enjoy the log fire, lake views and outside terrace and gardens.

Surrounded by beautiful lakes and mountains, Wateredge has its own boat slipway and jetty and is just metres from the steamer pier for cruises down the lake. The inn is also close to popular walking tracks and cycle paths.

This is our guests' favourite part of Ambleside, according to independent reviews.

Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 9.6 for a two-person trip.

Wateredge Inn has been welcoming Booking.com guests since 11 Nov 2010.
