Weekend Away Ambleside 2021

East Cheshire Ramblers

Weekend Away 17-19 September 2021
Ambleside 

This is an early briefing note as you will need to book your own accommodation. It is suggested that you book or provisionally reserve something as soon as possible as Ambleside is a very popular destination.

Ambleside is a small town situated at the head of Lake Windermere in the heart of the Lake District.  Although a major tourist resort with shops, restaurants, cinema and a large selection of places to stay, it has managed to retain a village feel. It is very popular with walkers and climbers and is one of the best bases for exploring the Lake District.


Organiser

The weekend at Ambleside is being organised by Andy Davies (sliponmeslipper@hotmail.com). 

Melanie Davy will look after the administrative side: forms, payment etc.

No accommodation is being organised for attendees, but Andy is hoping to arrange group meals for both Friday and Saturday evening.

 

Walks

We are hoping to offer short, medium and long walks on the Saturday and Sunday. This will be confirmed once all the walk leaders have been identified. If you are willing to lead a walk, please contact Andy at sliponmeslipper@hotmail.com.


Accommodation

No accommodation is being organised, but there is a wealth of accommodation in Ambleside to suit everyone.  Among other sites, see:  booking.com; Airbnb; www.visitcumbria.com/amb/ambleside/  and www.amblesideonline.co.uk/accommodation/

Friday and Saturday night meals 
We are hoping to organise these at Ambleside Salutation Hotel, Lake Road, Ambleside, Cumbria LA22 9BX for those who wish to join the group for one, or both, meals.

This will be confirmed at a later date as the hotel is currently closed due to the pandemic.

Registration Form and Recce Fees

Once details of meals have been arranged, there will be a further briefing note with a registration form to complete. There will be also be a £5 recce fee payable per person to cover the walk leaders’ petrol expenses. Full details of how to pay will be sent out with the registration form.
