The apple pie

Cafe, Bakery & Accommodation

Located in Ambleside, in the heart of Lake District, we are an independent, family run, Café and Bakery. Since its opening in 1975 The Apple Pie has grown in size and popularity, but we still keep our traditional values at heart, serving fresh and quality products every day to regular visitors, passing tourists and loyal locals.

Don’t just take our word for it, we’ve recently been placed as one of the 3000 best pastry shops in the world pastry awards by La Liste!

For those who want to extend their visit we also offer a number of accommodation options, from our stylish loft rooms above the bakery right in the heart of Ambleside to our homely self catering holiday cottages in Grasmere, all run by the team at the Apple Pie.

Stuck for a gift idea?

We offer gift vouchers that can be used in our bakery, cafe or towards a stay in one of our rooms at The Apple Pie or self catering cottages. We can even send them direct to your chosen recipient.
