Lovely Weekend Away
My partner and I decided that seen as we had a long weekend off together we\'d do something. We had a look at a number of B&Bs in the area but decided to book Norwood House.

We arrived late on Friday afternoon having been for a walk, and were met by Keith. As soon as you walk in the door you realise that it\'s a very clean and tidy establishment which is very nicely decorated. We were shown to our room, which was a King size on the top floor. The room was very nice, the ensuite was a little small but not too small to cause problems.

Breakfast was great, a choice of cereals or fruit and then a full English breakfast. A great start to the day before getting the miles in walking the fells.

Norwood House has free wifi throughout and free parking. We\'d happily return if we were staying in Ambleside in the future.

Norwood House
My sister and I enjoyed our visit at this very friendly and comfortable B&B. The location was excellent so never more than a few minutes away from a restaurant. It was good to have free parking too. Our hosts obviously know how to look after guests because the room and the breakfasts were more than satisfactory. We very warmly recommend Norwood House!

One Night Stay
Very welcoming. The owners were way so a friend was covering. Nice small room. Modern and stylish, no chintz. Good bathroom. Could do with a surface in bathroom to place towels/clothes. Would be good to have lower rate for single occupancy (92 pounds expensive).

Excellent Stay
Norwood House is in an excellent location in the heart of Ambleside. There is limited, restricted parking outside to allow drop off of luggage; allocated parking is available further down the road. Our king size room (No 3) was large with a very comfortable bed and nice decoration. Tea, coffee, biscuits and water were provided. En suite was sufficient with plenty of hot water, towels and toiletries. Free WiFi. Good breakfast but only served in a limited time slot to 9am. Hosts were extremely friendly and very helpful and knowledgeable regarding local walks, restaurants etc. We were loaned a map and even a rucksack as we had left ours standing in the hallway at home! Room price was definitely the top end I would pay for a guesthouse but as we booked late and our stay coincided with Easter holidays I was happy to pay this. I would recommend Norwood House.
