We stayed at this guest house as an introduction to the Lake District as I haven't been before. Anna landlady was so friendly and helpful nothing was too much trouble. Room 5 was very clean and very compact. The breakfast was excellent. We did feel that the mattress had seen better days but with the amount of walking we did...

Dear Shandylinks, Thankyou for your lovely comments, I'm so glad you enjoyed the beautiful Lake District. We have now replaced the mattress in Room 5 that completes our full refurbishment for 2017. We look forward to welcoming you back to Wordsworths Guest House in the picturesque village of Ambleside. Kindest regards, Anna and Paul.

Conveniently situated only a couple of minutes stroll from the centre of Ambleside. Free parking off road. Hearty breakfasts and veggies catered for. Cherry on the cake is a free pass to the spa at the Salutation Hotel. Excellent steam/sauna/outside jacuzzi/pool/gym. No restrictions on when you're allowed to visit (unlike some other nearby spas). This also entitles 10% off at...

How refreshing to find a B&B that is both homely and (virtually) chintz-free. The bedroom decor is lovely and we settled into our comfortable little suite very quickly. Most other boxes are ticked too: friendly but unobtrusive proprietors, generous breakfasts, convenient location with surprisingly little traffic noise, and easy parking. We also enjoyed our free passes to the excellent Salutation...

I had a very nice stay at the Wordsworths Guest House. It was beautifully decorated, with a heavenly double bed in the single room. The breakfasts were excellent, with plenty of options. Most importantly, Anna was wonderfully helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay again!

Spent a weekend here in August. Reception was warm and the whole place was well decorated and fresh. We were in a twin room at the front of the building which was occasionally a little bit noisy until around 12:45 as people dispersed from locals pubs. Passing traffic wasn't too much of an issue. Breakfast was very good and ample...

Great owner, a very warm welcome, lovely well planted garden, parking at rear. We booked the suite on the top floor which had a separate room with sofa (very handy for giving each other a bit of space when showering and changing etc). Two TVs. Although both rooms were not huge, they were very well thought out so seemed larger....

My sister and I visited the Lake District for a few days. This guest house is ideally situated in the town of Ambleside. Our twin room was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. The ensuite was tiny, but adequate, the only drawback was the sink was situated in the bedroom. Breakfast consisted of a choice of cereals, juices and a full...

I stayed 2 nights with a friend who was swimming in the Great North Swim in Windermere. Anna and Paul were also swimming but ensured her needs were met by providing breakfast earlier than advertised and giving advice on places to eat etc. They were friendly and genuinely interested in what she was doing and in the times she had...
