Relax in the whirlpool bath after a day's walking.

“Home from home”
Reviewed 4 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We were delighted we chose The Mounting Steps. It was spotless, homely and very well located. Everything was well thought out,from info,maps,book,tips and every gadget one could possibly wish for in the kitchen. We enjoyed our breakfast looking out across the lovely view and planning our day. Would thoroughly recommend.

“Lovely in autumn”
Reviewed 7 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

An easy walk from the centre of Ambleside but very definitely in the country. Excellent access to walks and to buses, so perfect for someone without a car.
Very comfortable and cosy, with every facility you could want.

“Can't wait to go again!”
Reviewed 5 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This is an idyllic cottage just a short walk from the centre of Ambleside and within easy walking distance from Windermere itself.

The cottage has everything you need during your stay, everything is included from a hairdryer to a set of dominoes, and is lovely and cosy. Every room is immaculate and full of character.

We can highly recommend Dodds Italian restaurant in Ambleside, the food and service is top notch.

We would definitely stay again!

“A delightful experience”
Reviewed 22 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had a wonderful few days at The Mounting Steps. We returned each day after exploring the area to a very cosy home that had a comforting and welcoming feel about it.
The Mounting Steps was immaculate. The facilities were very clean, everything we needed was catered for, the bed comfortable. We actually felt honoured to be sharing this beautiful home with the owners.
