Enjoyed a very pleasant 2 night stay at Wordsworths. Janet is an exceptional hostess offering excellent hospitality. The room was very clean and well furnished with a very comfortable bed. Complimentary homemade cakes and wine were available at all times. The full breakfast was very filling and good quality. Location is good for the Town and free parking a bonus. We will no doubt return on another visit to the Lake District.

Superb hospitality and a winning breakfast. - Rating 5/5

Superb hospitality and a winning breakfast - lean tasty bacon and the best poached eggs I've ever had anywhere. Lovely thick duvet on the bed for these cold nights. Linen and towels have a lovely fresh, clean smell. Complimentary tea, coffee, biscuits and water in the room. Quality toiletries in the bathroom. Janet was very informative and gave us some great tips for dining out and discounts on ferries etc. Homemade cakes for you to help yourself, and there was even my favourite lemon drizzle, and wine if you want it. Located in the heart of Ambleside within a few minutes walk from shops, cinemas and many eateries. Great base for visiting other towns and villages in the lakes. Faultless. Will definitely return and will pass my secret onto my friends and colleagues. Thank you for a very enjoyable stay. xx

Arriving early in a downpour I was welcomed like an old friend. I was offered drying facilities and shown where to help myself to a selection of homemade cakes. (a slice of the fruit cake after a long walk was most welcome).My single room with en suite, was comfy and well designed, including a smart tv with Netflix.In the evening I helped myself to a complementary glass of chilled white wine, (red and rose were also available).The mattress was very comfortable and for breakfast I enjoyed fresh blueberries and pineapple followed by delicious scrambled egg and lean back bacon and a full English on my second morning.This centrally located guest house is the place to stay in Ambleside and I will be back.

Absolutely fantastic- Rating 5/5

Where do I start? We have just had the most relaxing weekend in Ambleside and could not recommend this guest house more. The hosts were exceptional, nothing was too much trouble, they gave great advice on local restaurants and places to visit. The room was beautifully appointed with care and attention to detail, fresh milk was provided in a little fridge along with bottled water and this was refreshed daily. There were tea and coffee making facilities with plenty of tea/coffee/hot chocolate/biscuits for the duration of our stay. The complementary toiletries were of a high standard and there were ample towels provided along with a hair dryer. The bed was super comfortable and that along with the blackout blinds/curtains ensured a fabulous nights sleep, which was then followed by an incredible breakfast! The home baked cakes (which are delicious) and choice of wine that is provided for guests to help themselves to was a lovely touch and most appreciated, as was the option to go along to the spa at a hotel within walking distance to the property.This really is a fantastic find and we can’t wait to go back. Thank you Janet to you and your family for all of your hospitality.

We were given the large double studio for the duration of our stay and have to say it was stunning and absolutely spotless with all the conveniences we could possibly want, with fridge, microwave, tea and coffee facilities and even two tv’s!! Our hosts were brilliant and couldn’t do enough for us. There was even complimentary wine and cake on offer, and I have to say Janet’s cakes were stunning.

We booked the suite room for two nights to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary as a couple.We liked the idea of the suite because we are introverts and findpeople interactions can be a little draining.The suite comprises of a small kitchenette and seating area.Our interactions prior to arrival was friendly and accommodating.The directions to the free parking were spot on and we had no difficulty in arriving.We were greeted by Janet, who was very friendly and helpful.The suite room surpassed our expectations.Being excellently furnished and having some exceptionally sumptuous carpets.The use of the kitchenette allowed us to avoid eating out every night.Gave us a space to watch TV without having to lay on the bed and provided space to play games in the evening.We were pleased to be able to make use of the DVD collection provided to guests.We are also on a journey to zero waste so the use of a fridge and crockery really allowed us to minimise our impact on the local environment.Nothing was too much trouble, including adding in breakfast should we need it.We did treat ourselves one day to breakfast, which was absolutely delicious and highly recommended.In other guest houses we have stayed at, staff have often not been aware of the needs of the guests.Being too in our faces.This has not been our experience here.We were allowed our space but also saw the staff be very attentive to people wishing to engage more.We felt so comfortable in this guesthouse that when Janet mentioned we didn’t need to rush out as the room wasn’t book for that night, we decided to stay an extra night.Location wise the guesthouse is within a very easy walk to all the amenities in the locality and less than a mile from the Ambleside pier where you can pick up the ferries for travelling on Windermere.This guest house will be on my preferred stays for years to come and will be highly recommended to anyone wishing to stay in the heart of the Lake District.

Tea, coffee and water in the room was very welcome. There were plenty if towels, which was fantastic, as you usually never have enough. Breakfast was fab, and set us up well for a busy day.

Wordsworths - Rating 5/5

We found Wordsworths Guest House to be the ideal place to stay in Ambleside.It is in a very central position and easy walking distance to the lake, the shops, the bus station, fell walks.The guest house has its own car park which is a great advantage in Ambleside. We parked our car on arrival and travelled by bus for trips out.All the rooms in Wordsworths are very comfortable and tastefully decorated.Janet, the owner, serves a delicious breakfast with lots of choice both hot and cold.As a kind gesture she also leaves homemade cakes and wine for guests returning in the evening which can be enjoyed out on the patio.We have stayed on 3 occasions at Wordsworths.For our recent stay, in June,we booked the king size suite. As well as a lovely bedroom there is a combined lounge/kitchenette area with sofa, tv/ microwave, toaster, kettle, fridge, table. We would pop into nearby Tesco to choose from a variety of microwaveable foods for evening meals and snacks for lunches etc.Although the suite room was slightly more expensive, we found that the difference was more than made up by not having to dine out in restaurants every evening.This room will be our choice for our next visit.Thank you Janet and family.

On the bus routes to Windemere and Keswick. 15 mins drive max to Grassmere, Hawkshead, Bowness. This property has the added bonus of parking at the rear and a drying room for walkers &that`s just the start, on arrival you are welcomed and generally taken to your room, of which you will not be disappointed, The owners Mother &Daughter excel in making you feel at home, there`s always freshly baked cakes Wine /juice and water on offer. The breakfast is vast and i can recommend the full English! Room 6 is where we like to stay this being upgraded since our last visit to have a kitchenette style room with a couch and dining space, 2 tvs. Although this property faces the main road i don`t recall hearing traffic and have always slept very well. Value for money, looking forward to our next visit!!!!!

I cannot rate my stay highly enough. Everything was perfect from start to finish. The little extras - homemade cake, free spa passes and wine on arrival - made this place stand out from other guest houses. The owners are so helpful and approachable and the breakfasts faultless with a wide selection of extras available such as herbal teas and fruit conserves. My single room was cosy with a very comfy big bed and underfloor heating in the en suite. A powerful little hairdryer and free toiletries meant I could travel lighter and I was provided with a spare towel for my trip to the nearby spa. Parking is not easy in these Lakeside towns so to have this included was a real bonus. The guesthouse is far enough away from any pubs to be quiet at night but within a 5 min walk of shops and amenities. I don't often stay anywhere twice but this is one I will certainly look forward to visiting again. Perfect for a solo traveller!

A well presented b&b in a good position. Coming from the south there is no need to go around Ambleside’s one way system. What sets it above other b&bs are the little extras. Cake, just help yourself and fancy a glass of wine at the end of the evening?Again just help yourself.We had room 7 which has a small lounge and tv with free WiFi so one of us was able to do some work after breakfast. Poached eggs were perfect!We would have no hesitation in recommending Wordsworths.

We were a group of 5 friends that stayed at Wordsworths for 3 nights in September. The rooms and the breakfast were excellent. The location is perfect as you can walk to all restaurants and shops in Ambleside. There are plenty of walking paths around Ambleside and these are also easy to reach from the Guest House. The hosts were very helpful in finding walking routes and maps and descriptions were available free of charge. The hosts were incredibly helpful and caring and offered even complimentary homemade cakes, fruit and different beverages around the clock.

A warm welcome, beautiful house and room and well cooked and plentiful breakfast. The bed was comfortable, towels soft and everything spotlessly clean. Only one (slightly)negative comment. The separate room with sofa, which i think could be used for sleeping was nice and would be really handy for couples with kids but for me personally would be better as a bigger en suite with bath. The small but beautifully clean shower room space could then be used to put the wardrobe and an easy chair and there would be no need to have washbasins in both rooms. Sorry, just a little niggle. All in all we had a comfortable, welcoming and enjoyable stay.

We met Paul the following morning who shared his passion of photography with us and passed on many useful tips for using our new camera. The breakfast was superb, resulting in two clean plates. This guesthouse was 2 min walk from the town and offered free use of nearby leisure facilities which was a great bonus. We usually stay in hotels, , shying away from B &B's. However this is one guesthouse we will certainly be visiting again and soon. We would warmly recommend this place if you want warm hospitality, comfortable rooms and a great breakfast.

Great Place to stay in Lake District - Rating 5/5

Anna and Paul could not have been more welcoming. We could not fault any of the service. The rooms (our daughter in her 50's stayed in a separate room) were clean and cosy and the beds comfortable. Breakfast freshly prepared and the "home-made"marmalade highly recommended. (Can't wait to get started on the jars we brought home!!) Although we don't walk very far ourselves, there was plenty to see locally, parks, gardens and an easy walk to a Ferry point on Lake Windermere. There was one very rainy day when we spent a great deal of time in the best garden centre we have ever encountered. (plus furniture, kitchen ware, gifts, and Christmas decorations to die for, etc etc)Upstairs there was a massive restaurant plus outdoor seating. This was within a short walking distance of Guest House. Certainly hope to return to Wordsworth Guest House.
