Had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay and made very welcome by Anna and her friendly dogs. Central location, room and all other areas of the guest house spotless, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Great choice and quality breakfast. Spa passes were grateful after a long walk up the hills and so were drying our wet muddy boots, thankyou. Would definitely...

We first stayed at Wordsworth’s Guest House about 15 years ago and return as often as we can to a warm welcome from hosts Anna and Paul. Wordsworth’s is perfectly located for all that Ambleside has to offer, just a short stroll away from cafes, restaurants, cinemas, public transport, parks, tourist attractions and shops. A perfect base for walking in...

Stayed for a couple of nights for a weekend of walking. My single room was lovely, cosy, quiet with a view over the rooftops to the fells. Whilst the room was compact, it had everything I needed and the most comfortable double bed, nice en suite with a great shower (very welcome to warm you up after a walk in...

We stayed at this guest house as an introduction to the Lake District as I haven't been before. Anna landlady was so friendly and helpful nothing was too much trouble. Room 5 was very clean and very compact. The breakfast was excellent. We did feel that the mattress had seen better days but with the amount of walking we did...

Dear Shandylinks, Thankyou for your lovely comments, I'm so glad you enjoyed the beautiful Lake District. We have now replaced the mattress in Room 5 that completes our full refurbishment for 2017. We look forward to welcoming you back to Wordsworths Guest House in the picturesque village of Ambleside. Kindest regards, Anna and Paul.

Conveniently situated only a couple of minutes stroll from the centre of Ambleside. Free parking off road. Hearty breakfasts and veggies catered for. Cherry on the cake is a free pass to the spa at the Salutation Hotel. Excellent steam/sauna/outside jacuzzi/pool/gym. No restrictions on when you're allowed to visit (unlike some other nearby spas). This also entitles 10% off at...

How refreshing to find a B&B that is both homely and (virtually) chintz-free. The bedroom decor is lovely and we settled into our comfortable little suite very quickly. Most other boxes are ticked too: friendly but unobtrusive proprietors, generous breakfasts, convenient location with surprisingly little traffic noise, and easy parking. We also enjoyed our free passes to the excellent Salutation...

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!
