Wordworths guest house was clean, quiet and homely. The twin beds were firm - just as we like. Although the room overlooks the road, there was little traffic noise before 7am. The en-suite had lovely underfloor heating. The shower temp was a little erratic, but no major problem. Sink is in the bedroom but again, no problem with this. We... More

Stayed for two nights over Valentines weekend in the suite which is tastefully decorated and spacious. The shower room had underfloor heating which is a nice touch. Anna couldn't have been more welcoming and has a great local knowledge regarding where to eat/visit. The breakfast was very well cooked and plentiful. Will definitely be back.

We stayed at the Wordsworth friday-sunday. It was a spare off the moment decision, just a quick getaway, a little time to relax. We couldn't have been more happy, the guesthouse was beautiful and the owners were fantastic, they couldn't have been more helpful. We loved the decor in the bedroom and en-suite was nice and toasty! Breakfast was spot... More

Stayed here not long ago. Excellent, friendly service and extremely comfortable beds. Food was great and location was ideal as its a short distance to the Ambleside centre. Some magnificent views from the back garden and a short distance to some unbelievable trails.Would definitely recommend staying here. Good times!

We stayed here for a night on a tour around the UK and Anna and Paul were the perfect hosts and the guest house is perfectly situated for the village or the head of Lake Windermere. The car parking available just topped it off! A great place to stay!

Wordsworth Guest House is within 2 mins walk of Ambleside centre. The rooms are spotless and really tastily decorated, indeed the whole guest area is fantastic. The breakfast is to die for with just enough to set you up for the day. We walked up Coniston Old Man and only ate a couple of bananas and a drink!!! Anna, the... More

One is always looking for value for money and the Wordsworth certainly provides that. By sheer chance in the last couple of weeks we have stayed in a four star hotel in London and this Guest House in Ambleside........so how do the two compare. The room at the Wordsworth was considerably larger....yes larger. The bathroom was smaller but who lives... More
