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!
We escaped the Christmas mayhem by booking in to Mounting Steps for the week, although we encountered two storms in the week it didn't matter, when it got too extreme we retreated back to the lovely cost, comfortable cottage/house which was for us just a nice distance to walk in to Ambleside, the Accomodation is very well equiped and the spa bath heavenly, we will definately return it was so peaceful.
We are very active people and the accomodation being split over 3 levels didn't worry us but it may be a challenge for the less fit.
We had the most wonderful time staying at Mounting Steps. So restful after a day hiking and the cottage had everything you needed. I really recommend going to stay. We felt so well looked after and appreciated little welcome gifts.
Such an amazing find and booked at very short notice, Maggie and Greg were very polite and provided a great service. Mounting steps was presented extremely well, clean, warm and welcoming, absolutely going back again in the near future 100% situated in an area where it's quiet, 5 minute walk to town, and walking trials on the door step to the Lake District, simply superb
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.
