On the spur of the moment we decided to add one further night stay on to our three night stay in the lakes on our day of departure. After spending few days in Windermere and Bowness we decided to move Ambleside for our last night. We had a drive round Ambleside and noticed that the Wordsworth had a sign for vacancies and there was gentleman outside putting up Christmas lights so we stopped. The owner invited my husband into the B&B and showed him both rooms they had left and told him the rate which was reasonable. We chose our room and then parked in the car park behind the B&B.
The room was large with a separate sitting area with a small sofa decorated in a nice clean modern style. The bathroom was very small but adequate. The B&B is well situated about a minute’s walk from the centre of Ambleside with all its attractions.
We were lucky as the Saturday we stayed was the night of Ambleside’s Christmas parade, which included a lovely lantana parade and firework display in a nearby field which we enjoyed. We also had a good meal in a Chinese called the Jade Garden. It’s quite a large and busy restaurant but we found the food to be good.
Breakfast the next morning was good, although it’s served quite early for our liking at a weekend as it finishes at 9am. The lady serving breakfast was very jolly and helpful and the cooked breakfast was nice with a small selection of cereals.
We enjoyed our stay at the Wordsworth and would go back as it’s a clean and comfortable B&B in a good location.
