Welcome to The Mounting Steps, our beautiful Lakes’ Cottage!
This captivating period Lakeland cottage is set within a striking cobbled courtyard
and resides alongside the imposing listed manor house it once served. A wealth of
original features surround the property, with the original horse’s mounting steps
framing the front door. Nestling within the sleepy hamlet of Clappersgate, the centre
of Ambleside is a mere fifteen minutes’ pleasant stroll.
The property is set out over three levels. The accommodation comprises of an elegant
entrance hall giving access to a delightful bedroom which is complete with an iron
four poster bed and en-suite W.C. and wash basin. A staircase leads to the stylish
yet cosy lounge with beautiful furnishings. The living space has wonderful views.
The top floor has a modern country dining kitchen with everything you could wish
for and takes full advantage of the spectacular views. The bathroom has a double
ended whirlpool bath and mood lighting enhancing the beauty of the polished slate.
If you can tear yourself away, nearby Ambleside is rich with local shops, traditional
pubs and mouth-watering restaurants.
Being set at the foot of Loughrigg Fell, walking is offered in every direction,
including a footpath, 100 metres from the doorstep, to Loughrigg itself.
Such an idyllic romantic hideaway provides a perfect retreat for any special occasion
or even honeymoon.
The private parking is directly outside the front door alongside the mounting steps,
and there is use of an enchanting riverside garden where you might be lucky enough
to spot a deer, a kingfisher or even an otter!
