Norwood House is central Ambleside.

The rooms were immaculate, not too hot and the kingsize bed was fantastic (for any...

Wendy and Keith make you feel very welcome and offer great advise on what to do locally whether that be walking hiking cycling or going for a scenic drive. The proximity of excellent restaurants let alone a laundromat make the location excellent and they offer off street parking

What a lovely place to stay. It was reasonable, tastefully decorated in a nice area at the heart of Ambleside. Wendy was a really great host. The room was spacious and clean (Room 3, King size) and the full english breakfast was fantastic. Don't hesitate to stay.

The owners welcome you! It's old fashioned hospitality, but so good! Keith and Wendy, the owners, know their stuff. They know the area, Keith makes poached eggs to die for, and Wendy ensures toast and coffee is limitless. Rooms are clean, bathrooms are sorted and organised and plenty of information available. Well done. We had a fantastic stay. Thank you!
