Find us at the very heart of the Lake District in Cumbria.
Posh Bothies are located in the Central Lakes area, in or close to the ever popular village of Ambleside, offering everything from fine dining to pub grub, climbing walls to spas, mini cinema screens to live music, kayak hire to guided walking.
Mountains, lakes and beautiful countryside are within a few minutes’ walk from the door of our Bothies, making them the perfect base from which to explore on foot, from a low level stroll along a river or around a lake, or conquering a high level fell route.
A short drive takes you north to Grasmere and Keswick, south to Windermere and Bowness, or west to Coniston or the Langdales – or take a slightly scary drive over Wrynose & Hardknott Pass to Wastwater and return via Buttermere and the Nothern Lakes – or head to Morecambe Bay or Silecroft for fabulous coastal walks.
On 2 wheels you’re straight onto a number of cycle routes (or many bridleways for the off-roaders) or combine a cruise on Lake Windermere or Coniston Water with a return journey on the open top bus – weather permitting!
Dora’s Den is our Posh Bothy in the Village, located in lovely Ambleside itself.
Woodbug Cabin is our Posh Bothy in the Woods, located 2 miles outside Ambleside, in an ancient forest near Skelwith Bridge, at the entrance to the Langdale Valley.
By car: Ambleside is right in the centre of the Lake District National Park – it’s around 15 miles from J36 of the M6 if you’re approaching from the South or East and about 23 miles from J41 of the M6 if you’re approaching from the North or North East.
By public transport: Our nearest main airports are Leeds/Bradford, Manchester and Liverpool – all have car rentals on site. Manchester airport has a direct rail service right from the airport building to Oxenholme Lake District with onward connections then to Windermere Station. Buses and Taxis run from Windermere station to Ambleside, 4.5 miles away and then a bus from Ambleside will take you the additional 2 miles to Skelwith Bridge for the cabin.
