2 Cambridge Villas is the perfect bed and breakfast from which to Explore and Get Active

  •  Scrambling – “Scrambling is not an easy concept to define: It is best described as a component element of mountaineering along with hill walking, snow and ice climbing and rock climbing.”
  •  Bouldering – “There is no better place to boulder then the lake district. Some may consider it a bit of a back water in terms of bouldering and of little interest, but the venues are second to none.”
  •  Climbing – “There are few climbing locations in the UK that can match the Lake District. The sheer variety of crags, the beauty of the surroundings, and the sense of history mixing with the present day.”
  •  Cycling – “Road cyclists and mountain bikers are spoilt for choice in the Lake District National Park. There are country lanes, permitted cycleways and bridleways with some fantastic views!”
  •  Canoe/Kayak – “If you are looking to hire top quality open canoes or sea kayaks for use in the Lake District, Scotland or Wales, then speak to us. Our superb fleet of 14 sea kayaks and 16 open canoes are available for hire throughout the year.”
  •  Trail Running – “Running on off-road paths and bridleways – is a hugely enjoyable, high-energy sport that lies somewhere in between road-running and fell-running. Participants are able to savour the full outdoor, mountain experience while staying on tracks and paths. Popular in the USA, organised trail running events are relatively new in the UK but taking off in a big way in the Lake District. “
  •  Walking – “The Lake District National Park has walks for every ability from ambles around lakes to high ridge walks, with a bit of scrambling.”
  •  Sailing – “Want to learn to sail or brush up your skills? We are a Royal Yachting Association Training Centre and offer a range of courses to qualify for internationally recognised RYA certificates.”
  •  Popular walks from Ambleside – “There was a time when visitors to the Lake District read Baddeley’s guide book, bought a 1 inch map and set off into the hills wearing whatever clothes they had, a pair of wellies perhaps, an old mac, a tweed cap and jacket and an umbrella. Nearly all of them survived and enjoyed their adventures. They only came in summer.”
  •  Low Wood Leisure Centre – “Has plenty to offer any English Lakes Hotels guests with an unsurpassed range of facilities on offer. Our friendly professionally trained staff are available to help you improve your fitness and offer personal tuition in swimming and squash as well as aerobics, callenetics and many other group activities.”
  •  Hot air balloon rides– “We are a small, personable and enthusiastic, independent local family business providing Champagne hot air balloon rides over Cumbria – The Lake District in the North West of England since 1989.”
  •  Trout Fishing – “Esthwaite Water is the largest stocked lake in the North West of England, offering renowned top of the water action in true loch style, set amidst breathtaking scenery.”
  •  Go Ape – “Our Grizedale course (the jewel in our crown) has always proved popular. Built on a side of a hill, it feels seriously high. And that’s because it is. Fly 200 metres across the top of the Grizedale Beck and marvel at the forest canopy 18 metres up a magnificent Douglas Fir.”
  •  Altura Mountain Bike Trail – “Whinlatter Forest Park is home to the longest purpose-built mountain bike trail in the Lake District. The Altura Trail puts the mountain back into biking and has been built for experienced riders with good off road skills and a higher level of fitness and stamina.”
  •  North Face Mountain Bike Trail – “The North Face Trail offers a rush of curves, berms and north shore, uphill and downhill which takes riders on an adventure trail through Grizedale Forest.”
