Not knowing what to buy my parents this year for their birthdays, I booked a 2 night stay at Norwood House. I booked online but phoned a couple of days later to double check they understood the booking was for my parents and not for me. Speaking to Wendy and Keith put my mind at rest. Mum is fussy about...

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

Me & my partner stayed here for 1 night during a short break to the Lakes last weekend. For starters, excellent value for money compared to other guest houses/hotels that we considered. Can't fault anything, room was cosy, nicely decorated, well equipped with everything you could need, as well as the en-suite bathroom which was very spacious and clean (most... More

Having a short stay in the Lake District we really appreciated Norwood House. It was attractive, comfortable, clean, quiet and everything worked plus the people working there were helpful and friendly. It was important to have free parking close by for us, so really it was everything we wanted, and so central for Ambleside. We expect to return!

Stayed here to do some running in the fells and it's a lovely b&b. Got the bus back from Coniston and it was just round the corner. Ideal considering it was lashing down. Hot shower and little touches like a cork screw in the room! Brekkie was excellent with plenty of tea & coffee n toast in supply. Would definitely... More

Stayed here on way to Scotland, very good value and service, hope to return next year. No car park, but you are sorted with a car park 5mins walk down road. Lovely breakfast. Rooms excelled expectations.
