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... More

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.... More

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... More

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...

I stayed here with 4 friends when we were on a walking trip. The rooms were very clean and the owners couldn't do enough for us We were staying away one night and asked for a late breakfast at 11am when we returned. However we got back at 12! Despite the owner Paul just about to go rustled up pots... More

Good location close to the town with parking. Very well presented. Anna and Paul made us feel welcome and we felt looked after. Breakfasts solid and nicely cooked. We were late getting off the mountain and missed a breakfast. Paul immediately set too and cooked bacon sarnies with a fried egg and tea. Just great! A good place to stay.

I booked a suite within this guest house. I was greeted by Anna, the hostess who made me feel more like a welcome friend rather than a stranger booking a room for the night. The room was both spacious and cosy with the décor offering a boutique hotel experience rather than a bed and breakfast. The breakfast was lovely, the... More
