Stayed here for one night only. The room was very large and well decorated and the bathroom even larger. The bed was comfortable and the shower above average. The only complaint I would have is that the window for breakfast is only half an hour and unless you are well organised, we are not, then it's slightly restrictive. However it... More

For our first time staying in a B&B I have to say we were really impressed and Norwood definitely exceeded our expectations. Wendy and Keith were very welcoming and helpful when we arrived and throughout our stay. Room was a good standard size and very clean. Breakfast was lovely and served quickly from 8.30-9am. We had lots planned so we... More

Norwood House is an absolutely beautiful picture postcard B&B in the gorgeous setting of Ambleside. My two sisters & I had a fantastic 3 nights stay in this lovely house which is within walking distance of all necessary conveniences, public transport, restaurants, shopping etc. Ann hosted us really well and we were well served by Krystee - a cheerful assistant....

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
