Two Fish and chip shops in Ambleside. We like the one near the park best and there is another closer one called the Little Chippy in Windermere. Its really nice and always busy.
ICE CREAMS AND SWEET SHOPS
The Old Bank House sweetshop in Ambleside – sells all the Jelly Belly flavours! The ice cream van in the White Moss Common carpark near Rydal Water. It is there every single day! The Little Sweet Shop on the main street in Windermere village has a whole wall of sweets in jars to choose from. The Waterhead Coffee shop by the Windermere steamer jetty for chocolate covered ice cream cones.
Easy Level walks for little Ones (Even suitable for pushchairs):
Around Loughrigg tarn
Slightly tougher but still easy:
Straight out of the door, past the pub and up the Troutbeck valley to Ing bridge
Ashness Bridge above Derwent Water
Around Rydal Water
Brandelhow along the shore of Derwent Water
Loughrigg (not too high, good first mountain)
Cat Bells (nice walk and not too tough) – combine with a boat trip on Derwent Water
Coniston Old Man (quite tough, great views)
Scafell Pike (not nearly as bad as you think if you go up from Wastwater!)
Langdale pikes (smaller than Coniston Old Man, but still quite tough)
Wetherlam (yikes – it’s big! Great if you’re lucky enough to get snow on top)
