Wanslea B&B is situated at the foot of Wansfell, in the village of Ambleside, in the heart of the English Lake District. We are midway between the head of Lake Windermere and the village centre itself. Many walks start nearby, Wansfell of course being the nearest, just a few yards from our back door or a walk on the famous Fairfield horseshoe is just a mile away. Four or five minutes by foot will get you to the piers on the lake. Around the lake or just a short ride around the northern basin, you’ll find a wide range of walks suitable for every level of fitness. A five or six minutes walk and you’re in the village centre where there are many pubs and restaurants.

Surrounding our accommodation is seven hundred square miles of the Lake District so you can venture further afield to find walks and lakes, and of course beauty is all around no matter where you go. There are the homes of many famous poets and writers of the past all around including William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Each of these has a visitors centre which outlines the wonderful stories about them.
