    Additional Location Information
    Set in idyllic rural surroundings with a view that has hardly changed since the property was in the Wordsworth family, Stepping Stones is just minutes from Ambleside.

    Guests have a true getting away from it all experience in beautiful surroundings and surrounded by stunning scenery.
    There are many wonderful walks straight from the door, ranging from short walks to full day hikes

    Alternatively a few minutes in the car takes you to the village of Ambleside known by locals as the jewel in Lakeland´s crown. Ambleside offers a myriad of eateries and vibrant shopping surrounded by endless opportunities for outdoor pursuits.

    Nearby too is Grasmere, a wonderful Lakeland village with views abound. Grasmere has drawn poets, artists and painters for centuries. Famously the home of William Wordsworth in Dove Cottage, from 1799 -1808.
