We stayed Valentines weekend and had an amazing weekend. Sharon and Paul were the perfect hosts. Accommodation was immaculate and had all the homely touches you could wish for. Breakfast was delicious and the views were breathtaking. Great location. Both left feeling relaxed and recharged. Would not hesitate to book again or recommend to friends. Carla & Tommy Liverpool

Very pleasant guest house tucked away along a narrow lane but only a short walk into Ambleside town centre. Very quiet peaceful location with stunning views of the surrounding hills. Lovely little breakfast room with views over the hills and garden where you can watch the birds feeding. Spotlessly clean and a lot of thought gone into all the little... More

Stayed for two nights, 13-14 February, nook lane is just of the main drag and is a very quite lane to drive up despite reading other reviews I didn't find the lane too narrow, the guest house was nicely lit up and looked very inviting, the room was immaculate, and the view from the breakfast table was stunning, the breakfast...

We found the Wynford Guest House to be very comfortable and welcoming, in a location that was perfect for nipping into the village. The owners are friendly locals with a good awareness of customer care. Breakfasts were wholesome with plenty of choice. Paul and Sharon obviously take a lot of pride in providing a top class experience for their visitors.... More

We have been here several times and it's always first class. So clean, comfortable and homely. Sharon and Paul are excellent hosts. Situated away from the hustle and bustle of Ambleside yet within walking distance of Ambleside's facilities. The rooms are cosy, comfortable and big enough and we have stayed in every one of them. An extensive breakfast menu. We... More

The couple of minutes trip up Nook Lane were worth every second. This little gem is tucked away from the crowded streets of Ambleside centre, a 4 minute walk from The Golden Rule (probably one of the best boozers in Ambleside). Sharon and Paul are great hosts, down to earth, friendly and they keep a beautifully clean, well appointed Bed... More

Really enjoyed our recent 3 night stay at Wynford. Paul and Sharon were excellent hosts and their 3 bedroom guest house was top notch. Would definately return to this place no question. Thanks very much for a great stay Paul and Sharon. Up the Wolves ! :-)

The welcome here was wonderful. We stayed three nights. The hosts where friendly and helpful. In fact it was like being at home. The room was a good size with good facilities. Breakfast was very good, we where able to watch the birds feeding from a bird table by the window. It was a lovely lane to walk up and... More

We recently stayed at the Wynford Guest house for 2 nights and booked 2 rooms. We were extremely impressed! Beautiful location and Paul and Sharon were so helpful and friendly. Paul helped us find a great route for our walk to Grasemere, which we really appreciated. The breakfast was great and the rooms were cozy, spacious and very clean. We... More

Great place to stay, lovely welcome from Sharon and Paul on arrival. Room was very clean and bright with a fantastic view. Delicious breakfast each morning looking forward to staying again soon for another relaxing stay in the summer.
