Discover boutique independent shops in Ambleside

Ambleside in the Lake District is home to charming independent shops, boutiques and delis selling local artisan produce.

Why not take a relaxed stroll around Ambleside and pop in the lovely Herby Jacks, an eclectic independent retailer based specialising in luxurious products sourced from across the UK.

It’s one of the many businesses that accepts the Lake District Pound (LD£). The more you swap and spend the LD£ the more you're helping to support our local businesses, landscapes and communities! The value of any notes kept as souvenirs go directly to conservation charities helping to preserve the stunning World Heritage Landscape that makes this region such a special place.  

From fragranced candles and ceramics, to gentlemen’s grooming and shaving products and upcycled old wine bottles, an unforgettable gift won’t be hard to find here. Jewellery and natural, organic body care products including the locally produced Pure Lakes are also on offer, along with hand-stamped silver-plated cutlery with sentimental quotes, hand-hammered into vintage spoons and forks.
