Wordsworths Guest House is located on the main road leading out of Ambleside (as per the one-way car system) and is only a very short walk into the centre of town.

We have a car park at the rear of the guest house that is available to guests to use. Please use the following instructions to access as the postcode (and google maps) will take you to the front of the house:

You should follow the directions as given until reaching Ambleside.  At this point, continue on the A591 and instead of turning off onto Old Lake Road you should carry on until the road forces you to go left (opposite a BP garage) into the one way system, this is Wansfell Road. Once you have followed the road left, you should take your first right onto a private road. If you continue down this road, you will see the sign on our fence saying "Wordsworths Car Parking". You should turn in here and park your car before heading up through the garden to the back door.
