An excellent property. The fittings, the furnishings, the view and the location were all perfect.

This is such a beautiful apartment and was perfect for our week away. It was spacious and airy, with wonderful views over the Estuary and train bridge. We never tired of sitting on the window seat and watching life pass by. I am a townie and really appreciated the little cafes, pubs, post office, chip shop and train station nearby. The key safe was so useful as a variety of friends and family came and went over the week. We hope to find another excuse to book again soon!

The location for our break was excellent, the premises was more than we could have wished for and the link up's with the train service were superb. The local pub was very nice indeed with very pleasant staff and the chip shop was excellent! It was an excellent break helped by the accommodation!

Liked the attention to detail. Had high quality fixtures fittings and artwork on the walls by local artists. It was equipped with books, toys games to keep adults children happy. A really beautiful apartment in an idyllic setting.

Everything, it would be so hard to single anything out. We loved the property completely and would definitely stay again and recommend it to anyone who was looking to stay in this area.

The cottage owners gave gone to great lengths to provide an excellent cottage; from an amazingly well equipped kitchen, to extremely comfortable beds and the provision of plenty of games. Thank you for a great stay.

The property was excellent, it was so much more than a holiday let. It was spacious, clean and very well stocked in the kitchen. The bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect, very well presented and comfortable. We would highly recommend Mountain View to friends and family and hopefully make a return visit.

We loved the apartment itself, the location and the views. Every detail had been considered and provided which was very thoughtful. These little touches made the holiday easier and helped, along with everything else, to set this apartment above the rest.

Apartment fantastic, caters for everything from games on rainy days to picnic baskets for outdoor activities! All rooms finished to an amazing standard and spacious through-out. The views (especially from the bay window in the lounge) are great and will stay with us forever! All in all, an amazing and memorable stay - can't wait to come back.

Absolutely brilliant venue, spacious, well decorated and furnished. Sorry to leave the view from the living room, but well worth getting out to explore the fantastic network of footpaths across the beautiful hills, meadows and woods, all with incredible panoramas across Morecambe Bay. The rail station 2 minutes walk away but we didn't need to leave Arnside with its pubs, chippie, bakery and shops providing everything that was needed.

The flat was lovely, homely and stylish, well equipped with comfortable beds and lovely bathrooms. Top marks!
Mrs Walker

The accommodation was superb. The view across the estuary to the fells beyond was stunning. The apartment itself had absolutely everything we needed and more. The beds were comfortable and the living room cosy. When a minor hiccup happened, the owners sorted it out straight away. The central location is so handy for shopping, eating and leaving the car behind with train and bus literally on the doorstep. The walking and wildlife in the area is outstanding. Loved every minute of our stay.
Mrs Howard

The apartment was perfect in every possible way. Well situated with perfect views of the Kent Estuary. The sunsets were amazing.
Mrs Crowe

This is the best holiday home we have stayed in. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and had thought of lots of things in the apartment to make guests stay very comfortable.
Mrs Clayton

An amazing apartment. Stylishly decorated, and everything had been thought about. Fabulous location with amazing views from all windows on the front of the property. Excellent location with good range of local amenities.

We really enjoyed our stay, the apartment is furnished to a high standard and has pleasant views.
Mrs Wilkinson

We were lucky enough to be the first people to stay in this beautiful apartment with amazing open views over the river and hills. It is very spacious accommodation over two floors with large rooms and high ceilings so it feels more like a house.

My husband and I stayed here with some friends for a week. It has a lovely location (with the best chip shop in Cumbria two doors away! They even do gluten free batter). The flat is very spacious, clean, comfortable and well equipped, and the view over the estuary and the train bridge over the sands is very special. Definitely a place to return to.

Everything was provided to make this a lovely stay. We are used to having to rush out to buy the forgotten extras - sugar, salt, toilet rolls, handwash etc - but not here! The biscuits were particularly welcome after a long journey. The location of the apartment was fantastic - minutes from the station, good pubs and handy shop. The views were wonderful and eight month Olive loved sitting in the window seat just watching the birds, the people and the trains. Could not have been better - will definately be back!

We stayed here for a week (5th - 12th September) with our son, daughter in law and four grandchilren aged 10, 7, 6 and 2 years old. The accommodation is exceptional and everything has been thought out for comfort and convenience. The whole place is decorated to a high standard and the fixtures and fittings are of the best quality. The views from the front windows are amazing, overlooking the Kent Estuary (binoculars are provided !) You will find everything you need within the apartment and Arnside has a good Londis/post office down below, lovley fish and chip shop (queues are massive but worth the wait) lovely shops and cafes, two pubs, we preferred the Albion and parking for Mountain View is easy in the street outside. We left some clothes behind and Mr Baines is parcelling them up and sending them back ! we don't know how that happened but with four active kids we must have been distracted. All in all we wholeheartedly recommend Mountain View and hope one day to return (if they'll have us !)

We stayed here for 3 nights with 3 of our Grandchildren just before Christmas. We can't reccomend this apartment highly enough. What can we say, spacious, warm, welcoming and convienant, meeting all our needs. From watching the weather changing over the mountains, train spotting and people watching. We will come again. Thank you Peter and Margaret.

Mountain View has to one of the best holiday accommodation rentals we have ever stopped at in this country. Just a few mile from the motorway and ideally situated for the Lakes & the Yorkshire Dales. The apartment is beautifully presented, & well equipped & extremely comfortable, with ample space for our party of 6 adults. The only thing that may put some less able bodied people off are the stairs. Though not a problem for us. We all took books to read, but found ourselves constantly looking out of the large bay window, at the amazing views of the Kent estuary and mountains beyond. The sunsets are astounding & must be seen to be believed. Arnside has a few shops, with a Co-op next door. There are two pubs close by which serve food, although The albion is definitely the best. We made use of the railway station which is just around the corner. Ideal if you want a day off driving. There is so much to do around here. We cannot wait to return this area & the apartment. A word of warning though. Don't be tempted to walk on the the sand when the tide goes out. This is due to quick sand. The tide also turns very quickly and sirens send out warnings about 10 minutes before this happens.

Had a great stay last week. The apartment is fully equipped with everything you need. Really helpful and friendly owners who go the extra mile to make sure all is OK. The views out over the bay are wonderful. I took books to read but spent all my time sat in the bay window looking out over the bay. Great location, there are lots of walks in the area (maps and guide books available in the apartment) and it is easy access to the south lakes, Leighton Moss RSPB reserve etc. It is only about 20 minutes from the M6. Great information on pack on things to do. At the time of writing there are no restaurants in Arnside but there are 2 pubs which do food and a very handy chippy a couple of doors down. You are also close to a well stocked Londis if you don't want to go far. The kitchen has all you need to cook meals in and a table for 4 which is good for breakfast. There are tearooms which are open during the day. It is very spacious and would easily cater for 6 adults and a couple of children sharing the big room with their parents. There were only 2 of us but we felt comfortable staying there. We really didn't want to leave at the end of our stay. We'd love to stay again. There are quite a few stairs as it is located on the first and second floor and you would need to keep an eye on any little ones running around. Not a problem for us. Absolutely loved it.

We have just returned from a wonderful week at this beautiful apartment in Arnside. Everything we could possibly have needed was provided with the apartment, plus extras such as wine, chocolates for the children, tea, biscuits, butter, milk etc. This was an incredibly thoughtful touch, over and above our expectations, and what we have received at other good quality holiday rentals. The view from the apartment was superb and enjoyed by young and old alike, from our train obsessed nearly 2 year old who loved watching the trains, to his grandparents and ourselves who were bowled over by the constantly changing views of the estuary. This is a beautiful apartment in a fabulous location with owners who go out of their way to provide you with information and supplies to help you enjoy your holiday, rather than bombarding visitors with a list of rules. This ensured we & hopefully others, will do their utmost to keep the flat in its current beautiful condition and we look forward to a return visit.
