“Lovely stay at Kirkstonefoot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Just returned from our first visit to Ambleside. We found the apartments to be ideally located and very comfortable, we stayed in Loughrigg with our dog. Would recommend this place as it is so easy to walk into Ambleside and easy to walk into the countryside as well.

Just got back from a week in Brassenthwaite and had another fantastic stay in these lovely apartments (have stayed in serveral and have never been disappointed).

They are always extremely clean and the location is ideal for Ambleside yet far enough out for peace and quiet. Each apartment has its own allocated parking space - which is a great advantage in Ambleside.

Can not wait for our next visit.

Another return visit for us and yet again we were not to be disappointed.
Kirkstone Foot has so many positives that perfectly suit the requirements we deem essential to making our trips to the Lake District something to look forward to; -such as comfort, privacy, convenience to the village centre, ample parking and with Ambleside so centrally placed the ideal base for those seeking to experience all the major fells. And all so reasonably priced with a friendly and attentive service provided by Ian, Jackie and all their team!
We have already booked aother stay for October 2013 and we are more than happy to recommend this establishment as one that will not disappoint.

As we are just about to leave for out third stay at Kirkstone Foot this year (!), we thought it time to write another review (a dozen-ish stays over the past few years and only one review seemed mean). We have stayed at KF regularly since our first review in 2010 in a number of different apartments. All are individually and tastefully furnished and decorated, with each equipped to the same high standard. In our experience, all the apartments are handed over meticulously clean and pristine. Service from Ian, Jackie and the team is consistently friendly, efficient and above all, helpful in the extreme. As testament to this, we stayed in Langdale over the New Year period, returned to stay in Rowan at the end of January and are just about to leave for another 6 nights in Rowan tomorrow. There are few places which provide such a pleasant and relaxing break, in peaceful, quiet surroundings but a few moments stroll from the centre of town. Ambleside and Kirkstone Foot are enjoyable to visit, no matter what time of year.

Room Tip: Rowan and Langdale are our two current favourite, but we've stayed in many apartments (although...

We've stayed here several times over the years, not found anything better in Ambleside without paying a King's ransom

The apartments, both in the Coach House and the Manor House, are unfailingly warm and well equipped. Comfortable beds, good chairs to slouch in after a day on the fells and everything needed in the kitchen.

Onsite parking is vital in Ambleside and Kirkstone Foot has it. Finally the complex is only a few minutes walk from the centre of the village, so no need to move the car for a meal out or a trip to the pub. This means it's also well sited for fell walks from the door onto Red Screes, the Fairfield Horseshoe, Wansfell, or Loughrigg.

Room Tip: The Manor house has some rooms with a view over Ambleside - ask when booking. But all are quiet - no...

Just returned from the Kirkstone Foot Apartments today, this was our 3rd visit and it's still as good as ever. I can't coment on the other apartments as I have only stayed in Mardale but if the rest are anything like this one I don't think you could find anything to complain about.
Mardale is modern, clean, well situated only a short stroll from all the shops pubs and resturants, and an ideal location for exploring the Lakes.
Mardale is also pet friendly which is excellent for us. If your thinking of staying in Ambleside I deffinatly recomend staying here.

We have now stayed at Kirkstone Foot on eight occasions so needless to say we are more than impressed with everything that these apartments can offer. Ambleside being centrally situated is ideal for all who love fell walking and the Kirkstone Foot apartments offer everything that we seek. Peace and quiet, privacy, comfort and yet just two minutes walk from the centre of the Ambleside and some superb restaurants and pubs. Parking in Ambleside can be described as being much sought after, -no problem with this superb establishment. It genuinely is difficult to find a fault with the place, the fact that we are return visitors and have already booked for April 2013 surely speaks volumes. Give the place a go, I am sure you will not regret the decision to make a confirmed booking.
