If you’re in the Ambleside area already or looking for a pre Bank Holiday weekend break then there’s an even bigger reason to visit.
Starting on Thursday August 20th and running until Sunday 23rd is the 4 day Ambleside Festival organised by the Market Square Group. This is the first year of this 4 day event being held on Rothay Park and featuring family fun, music, entertainment and freshly cooked hot and cold food stalls, others traders, groceries, crafts and a beer festival. The event will be open 10am until 6pm daily (Saturday you get an extra hour, closing at 7pm).
This very popular and beautifully located park is the ideal venue, with the town of Ambleside in touching distance and the fells in the background. Further details can be found here, http://www.marketsquaregroup.co.uk/core/eventdetails?id=157.
Accomodation can be found just across from the park at the Rothay Garth B&B in Ambleside. A few rooms remain during the 4 days from £51 per person per night. Dog friendly bedrooms may be available. Call 015394 32217 for more details or visit http://www.rothay-garth.co.uk/
