Lake Windermere is under 30 minutes drive from Howthwaite. Boat Hire is available, or simply relax and enjoy one of the many organised cruises.
Hill Top was the home of Beatrix Potter. It is beautifully preserved, as if she has stepped out for a walk, and ideal for families with children.
The Jumble Room in Ambelside comes recommened, where you can find lovely local food and frequent live music nights. The Drunken Duck Inn is also a must.
Don't miss the fabulous Zeffirellis, either during the day for coffee, or in the evening for amazing pizzas and cinema.
