I Stayed over for one night, the room was spotless and modern. Very central within Ambleside. Breakfast was lovely. I couldn't find fault. I also got a really nice welcome. The price for the single room was excellent considering the how lovely the place was.

We chose Norword House as a last minute weekend break. Location was very central and came with dedicated parking facilities which was an excellent combination. Hosts were welcoming and very friendly. We stayed in room 3 which was a large room at the front of the property, the only down side was the bathroom was a little cosy.

Very attentive service and the full English breakfast set us on our way exploring the area. The room was very comfortable. Our room only had a bath - cannot remember the last time I had a bath! But enjoyed a good soak after our walk.

My friend and I booked this after reading the reviews and looking at the photos, we made our reservation by phone, and Wendy who we spoke to was so friendly and helpful on the phone it set things off nicely. On arrival we could not have been made to feel more welcome. Wendy helped us get settled in and showed... More

Thank you to the owners of the Norwood House for a excellent stay. Very pleased we found this modern friendly B&B. The room was comfortable with large screen TV, modern chair , tea coffee and bottled water. Didn't really drink much water if you don't count added hops and yeast.The double bed was very comfortable and I slept well apart... More
