Lovely property, very well equipped. Very convenient for langdales and Ambleside. Nice and spacious and lots of guide books and maps for the area.
We were very happy with the location within easy walking distance of the town. It had a lovely setting across the road from the river with the use of a table and chairs beside the river. The accommodation itself was three stories which did get a bit tedious at times but was extremely comfortable.
We stayed at the Mounting Steps in March 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The location was excellent for access to Ambleside and the many beautiful walks that await in the nearby hills and valleys. The property is comfortable, homely and clean and the jacuzzi bath was a particularly welcome feature after a long day exploring the fells! We'd certainly recommend this lovely property to others and would not hesitate in making a return trip.
The house is fantastic, well equipped and very comfortable. It is just a short walk from Ambleside so we walked in every day which took about 10 minutes. There are some great walks straight from the house. Rates very reasonable. Would stay again.
An easy walk into Ambleside (lots of outdoor shops and places to eat and drink) and positioned in a court yard with other properties - setting it back from the road a little. There are also walks directly from the property. The house is very comfortable with a well equipped kitchen and there's a great array of walking guides and maps in a box in the sitting room. The only downside is that it's spread over three floors - bedroom and ensuite toilet on the ground floor, sitting room on the first floor and kitchen and bathroom at the top. At least using the stairs kept me mobile after a day out walking. I'd love to go back.
Stayed here a few weeks before Christmas and the owner had added a few festive touches. Far enough out from Ambleside to enjoy the countryside yet close enough to wander into town for a meal or drink.
Fabulous stay in the Mounting Steps. Immaculately clean and comfortable. Great position - 15 minute walk into Ambleside with good selection of restaurants and pubs.
Best moments - eating breakfast in the kitchen looking out to lake Windermere. Lake cruise to Bowness. Sunny weather and daffodils. Craft ales in the Queens hotel and food in Doi Intanon.
Highly recommended - other family members have booked for later in the year!
