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

Paul and Sharon couldn't do enough for us - storage for bikes, early breakfast and a emergency gluten free sandwich! Rooms very clean and lovely breakfast. Wynford is tucked away at the back of Ambleside and is very peaceful - leave your car and 15 minute walk into town. What more you could you want... Thank you we will be... More

Paul and Sharon are great hosts, very friendly and welcoming. Great rooms, yummy breakfast, ideally located to be able to park the car up and not use it again during the stay, booked to return in a few weeks!

My partner and I spent one night at the Wynford guest house in rainy cold February. We arrived a couple of hours early hoping to leave our car on their car-park so we could walk into Ambleside. We were greeted by Paul who was very welcoming and happily showed us our room which was almost ready as well as the... More

Ambleside has always been a fabulous place to stay and this bed and breakfast is one of the very best! We stayed in room 1, 2 single beds linked as one and so comfy. Scrupulously clean, lots of hot water for the bath, little extra touches like chocolate bars every day and muscle soak bubble bath for after long walks,... More
