  • A good old fashioned book shop, if hasn't got it he can get it. If I lived in Ambleside I'd be a regular.

The gentleman behind the till, presumably Fred, was very welcoming to my kids and they were very pleased to be offered a free book from the World book day stocks. We'll be back again for more reading material next time we're in Ambleside.
