We have a 9 hole mini-golf course and 9 hole crazy golf. For the more energetic person there are three full size tennis courts for you to play on, for a more gentle life we have a large smart bowling green.

Finally we have an infant play area and lots of benches so you could just sit and relax as the day passes by. All the equipment can be hired from the ticket office where you can buy hot and cold drinks and ice creams. We look forward to seeing you on either the mini golf courses or one of the other activities on the site.

We are open daily with the last ticket sold an hour before closing. Please contact us for any special requirements that will increase your enjoyment of your time in Ambleside. Keep watching our website as new and exciting activities are planned for the season and beyond.
