100 Lake Road
"Welcome to Alpkit Ambleside! Well, our online base anyway... Come in and make yourself comfy, grab a cuppa, read a magazine, refill your water bottle, and take a look round the store. This is our home when we’re not off exploring the Lake District and ‘testing’ the gear. Whether you need a little guidance, want to take out a bike, try on a wetsuit, or just fancy a chat – there’s nothing we love more than hearing about your adventures."
Chris, Ambleside Store Manager
To ensure the safety of all our staff and customers, we're implementing new measures across our stores:
Think of it as our Lake District base camp, a really well-equipped base camp with the entire Alpkit product range inside, from the teeniest Kraku stove to our fully featured Definition waterproof: you can jump around on the bouldering pads, try on a wetsuit, fit our bikepacking luggage on your bike or snuggle up in a expedition sleeping bag.
Give your retired gear a second life by donating it to our Continuum project to be adopted by someone who really needs it.
Head upstairs and you’ll find yourself in Hathersage’s finest indoor campsite where you can try out our tents for size.
We're constantly looking for an excuse to get out and about in the Lake District! You too huh? We run courses, events and lectures throughout the year to fulfil our cravings for adventure and inspiration, and meet a few new people whilst we're at it. If that sounds like it might be your jam, drop us a line by phone or email for more information or bookings.
