Had an excellent stay at this lovely B&B. Situated in the centre of the town close to all restaurants, bars and shops. We stayed in room 7 on the top floor it was a lovely room very spacious, very comfortable and the owners are excellent. Breakfast was superb and I would recommend this B&B.

I stayed at Norwood House with my girlfriend for 3 nights. We were greeted and made to feel very welcome. The rooms were very clean, bright and comfortable with a good information for all your needs, including some walking ideas. The location is great with only a short walk to a selection of pubs, restaurants and the shops. Despite this,... More

We had a lovely stay in Ambleside at Norwood House. Wendy & Keith were welcoming & really helpful. The room was bright, clean & comfortable and the breakfasts very nice too. The guest house is conveniently located near to the centre of Ambleside and easy to find, as was the parking nearby.

Stayed for two nights in a top floor room. Room was very clean and warm with a lovely big bath and we think it's great that you get wine glasses and a corkscrew in your room. Norwood House is very nicely decorated throughout and although there were quite a few other guests it was very quiet and we slept really... More

Friendly, clean,warm accomodation in a town we could only have previously imagined.(being from Australia) Our hosts, Keith and Wendy, were friendly and informative particularly about surrounding walks as they are keen walkers themselves. Wendy's enthusiasm has inspired us to seek out more walking trails when we return home. My children think Keith cooks "the best eggs ever" after enjoying an... More

The room we had ( #3) was, presumably, a family room with a king size bed and single bed, facing front of audible and constant it did die down somewhat in the evening and wasn’t really intrusive.

Just returned from a two night stay at this small hotel. Ambleside is a lovely town with lots of bars, cafe and restaurants with lots of character, pity the hotel didn't have the same feel. We had room 8 in the eaves, the bathroom was tight to say the least and if you are over 5'0'' you really cannot have... More

Lovely b&b in an excellent location. We had a lovely room and bathroom had a great corner bath. Breakfast was very tasty and of a high standard. Everywhere was exceptionally clean and the owner and her staff were very helpful and friendly, without being intrusive. An excellent stay!
