A really pleasant guest house, clean and well presented as observed by others, close to all town amenities and buses, and car parking at back. Stairs, as with all such residences, are a challenge for the elderly, but manageable as is the need. I prefer the host/s to introduce themselves at the outset, to be on a first name basis... More

The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Most guests are walkers or cyclists and they are able to advise on local walks and restaurants. The facilities are good.There is a drying room provided for... More

These were furnished lovely- not one but two tv.s, plenty of tea/coffee and biscuits in the room. The owners had thought things through and plenty of maps and tourist ideas... More

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!
