We stayed at Norwood House for 4 nights recently and enjoyed the comfortable feel of the house, the breakfast and the owner Keith! Parking was available a short walk from the guest house. Starting with the house - very relaxed with wifi available, a good selection of local walking trail books, comfortable beds and lovely hot radiators to warm up...

Unfortunately for our brief stay it rained the whole time, so we didn't see the best of the area, but our room was great, bed comfortable and the room was very clean. The full English breakfast was very good, with choices to suit any taste.

We booked a stay in the Lakes for our 10th Wedding Anniversary. Norwood House is a very warm, inviting place to stay and the friendliness and service from the owners was second to none. The full English breakfast certainly set us up for the cycling and walking!!! We would definitely recommend Norwood House to others.

The breakfast was amazing and Keith was as helpful and attentive as ever. There is a small sitting area downstairs which we made use of , though apparently not...

Stayed for two nights at Norwood House. Keith and Lynsey are a very welcoming couple and the Guest House is very comfortable. Breakfasts are superb. Would recommend for a nice central location in the lovely town of Ambleside.

I cannot fault the standard of accommodation and hospitality at Norwood House. We stayed with two other couples and we each had high standard rooms with every comfort. The welcome was warm and the breakfast was excellent and plentiful. Norwood House is conveniently situated in the village of Ambleside and within easy walking distance of many restaurants, pubs and bars....

Norwood House has accomodation for up to 8 couples and our room was on the third floor. It was comfortable and spacious with ensuite. Pillows were a bit hard but the bed was comfy. Breakfasts were very good (full English) and fresh coffee was available along with fruit juice and tea. The proprietors looked after us well. The only concern...

We went to Lake District to go hiking. This Place is so gorgeous. The landscape is a dream. This accomodation was perfect because the Housemaster was at the mountain rescue for a long time..so he had some really nice tips where to take some nice hiking tours. The house was lovely decorated, the rooms were clean and they had their...
