“For me as a seasoned ex pat, it was the first Christmas that I had spent in the UK for years and years and I was eagerly looking forward to a traditional English Christmas and our stay at the Wordsworth.

Not only did Christmas at the Wordsworth come up to my expectations, it surpassed them by miles. It was absolutely super. My sincerest thanks to you and your hard-working, friendly and polite staff for making it possible.”
