Wordsworths Guest House 4 stars

Ambleside

Offering fresh, elegant rooms with fell views and gourmet cooked breakfasts, Wordworths Guest House provides free parking in Ambleside’s centre. Lake Windermere is only a 10-minute walk away.

Each room at Wordsworths features an en suite bathroom with underfloor heating and a hairdryer, as well as free Wi-Fi. Guests can enjoy a flat-screen TV, tea/coffee facilities and a radio alarm clock. 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 your hospitality. Sarah & Jonathan

Melrose Guesthouse 4 stars

Ambleside

Set within the heart of the beautiful Lake District in the idyllic village of Ambleside, Melrose Guesthouse offers spacious rooms and free spa access, and is just 15 minutes’ walk from Lake Windermere.

Surrounded by numerous fells and stunning Lakeland, there are countless opportunities for rural walks, and the famous Lake Windermere offers steamer cruises. My room was very comfortable and quiet. There was a nice view over Church St and Jim and Monique were wonderful and helpful hosts. The breakfasts were exceptional and included in the price. Ambleside in my opinion had much more going for it than the more celebrated town of Windermere. There were many good restaurants and pubs a short walk from the guesthouse.
