Originally Cooper rebuilt the red roofed log cabin in Coniston village as a studio causing quite a stir among the people but the tourism there was not sufficient for Alfred to sustain his growing family. More people seemed to be visiting Ambleside than Coniston so the log studio was moved to its present location. Enjoy dining in our contemporary restaurant, with a relaxed atmosphere. Our philosophy is to use only top quality seasonal produce, to reflect our passion for honest flavoursome food. Please note the restaurant is closed on Mondays. As a tourist centre Ambleside has a long and favourable history. For well over 150 years the town has earned a living catering for visitors, giving them mostly what they wanted, provided they didn't mind what they got. The last twenty five years have seen a revolution in tourist provision however, as upgrading of catering at all levels has been led by the market and by encouragement from official bodies. Few could nowadays claim that they cannot enjoy the level of catering they expect. All sectors of the market, from campers to gourmets, will find satisfactory establishments in Ambleside and its outlying hamlets and villages. The town is easily reached by road, being 20 miles from the M6 motorway, and is served by several bus services, including National Express. Rail travel is to Windermere, four miles away with easy bus and taxi access. There is a direct Manchester Airport/Windermere rail link. Ambleside is a very convenient starting point for excursions, walking, cycling or driving, into all areas of the Lake District, situated as it is at the hub of the area's road system.
