We received a warm welcome from Anna. Our rooom was lovely. Decorated to a high standard and spotlessly clean. We met Paul the following morning who shared his passion of photography with us and passed on many useful tips for using our new camera. The breakfast was superb, resulting in two clean plates. This guesthouse was 2 min walk from the town and offered free use of nearby leisure facilities which was a great bonus. We usually stay in hotels, , shying away from B &B's. However this is one guesthouse we will certainly be visiting again and soon. We would warmly recommend this place if you want warm hospitality, comfortable rooms and a great breakfast.

Anna and Paul could not have been more welcoming. We could not fault any of the service. The rooms (our daughter in her 50's stayed in a separate room) were clean and cosy and the beds comfortable. Breakfast freshly prepared and the "home-made"marmalade highly recommended. (Can't wait to get started on the jars we brought home!!) Although we don't walk very far ourselves, there was plenty to see locally, parks, gardens and an easy walk to a Ferry point on Lake Windermere. There was one very rainy day when we spent a great deal of time in the best garden centre we have ever encountered. (plus furniture, kitchen ware, gifts, and Christmas decorations to die for, etc etc)Upstairs there was a massive restaurant plus outdoor seating. This was within a short walking distance of Guest House. Certainly hope to return to Wordsworth Guest House.

Excellent- Rating 5/5

Stayed at the Wordsworth for 2 nights with my teenage son and found everything to the highest standard. The cleanliness of the room and comfortable bed were just what we needed for our walking holiday. The delicious breakfast got us ready each morning and the under-floor heating in the en suite and drying facilities for our wet gear were very welcome touches on our return. Anna couldn't be more helpful in ensuring our stay was the best it could be and we would definitely return there in future.

Pleasant break! - Rating 4/5

Very clean, nice decor, excellent breakfast with home-made conserves,friendly service,bedroom v. comfortable,though would have preferred washbowl in shower room!Had upgrade to king-size room at no extra cost. No fire safety instructions in visitor info. and no 'Do not disturb' signs. Can ask for a top sheet if too warm for duvet- all guest houses need to note this, have been to so many establishments where no alternative to heavy duvet, even in summer!Car park rather small, esp. if you have a large car. Would go again!

Warm hospitality, beautiful decor, delightful breakfast - Rating 5/5

We booked our stay last minute and were delighted with our choice.The guesthouse is located very close to the town centre, with walking distance to all shops, public houses, restaurants.Our room was spacious and elegantly decorated, with a compact but perfectly adequate bathroom with uh-so-lovely-and-warm underfloor heating.Wifi access was fairly strong and solid during both days of our stay.Our host Anna was welcoming, very helpful, nothing was too much trouble.She offered to dry our walking clothes after a wet day in the hills which was just priceless.The full English breakfast was tasty and plentiful, with delicious toast and homemade jams on the side.This guesthouse is an excellent value for money and makes for a great, welcoming base for your stay in the Lake District.We will be back!

Aaaannndd relax.... - Rating 5/5

Had a lovely two night stay at Wordsworths. Gorgeous rooms &friendly service meets great location &tasty breakfasts! Lots of choice on the breakfast menu and you don't have to wait long at all for your plate to arrive. Lots of walks in the area and within easy walking distance of Ambleside and it's plethora of restaurants. Even if the weather is grotty the rooms are so nice that you don't mind spending a few hours chilling out at the guest house. Also useful that there is off road parking although I'm not sure that everyone would fit if it got crazy busy but this wasn't an issue on a rainy February weekend! Thanks for a lovely stay :)
