Warm welcome from Keith and Wendy. Lovely guest house, very clean, comfortable and warm. Great breakfast. Would definitely go back and recommend to others. Nothing was to much trouble and Keith and Wendy went out of their way to help my partner arrange for flowers and fizz to be there on our arrival. Parking space allocated which was also a... More

Centrally located, benefit of parking space, although we didn't use it as got a space on the road outside. Spotlessly clean, comfortable bed and room, good breakfast and friendly hosts couldn't ask for more. We will be back.

A warm welcome on arrival, comfortable room and right in the centre of town. We were here just for the night but enjoyed our stay. The restaurant we booked was very close and we also found a couple of bars near by. We wish we'd had more time and had stayed a couple of nights. Maybe next time

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Norwood House. It is in a fantastic location and parking is free and only 5 mins away from the B&B. Our room was lovely and clean and gave us a nice view out onto the streets of Ambleside. Our bathroom was huge and was again very clean. We had a full English breakfast every... More

First impressions were great, we were shown up to a generously sized room which was finished to a high standard, the room was also very clean and comfortable.... More

Norwood House is central Ambleside. I reckon if you dropped a pin in the centre of the town it would cleave the four story building in two on an OS map such is its pride of place in the burgeoning honey jar that is Ambleside. The rooms were immaculate, not too hot and the kingsize bed was fantastic (for any... More
