I travel a lot, both for business and holidays. But I have never come across anyone in the hotel industry to save my holiday just out of kindness, therefore I would give Wayside Inn 10 out 5 stars if that was possible. But I will start from the start. I flew in to Manchester with a friend late and then... More

Thankyou for the lovely review, it was no trouble at all to help you with the car problems, we are here to make sure you have a stress free stay and enjoy the area instead of sorting problems out when you get here. Steven and I are so glad you enjoyed your stay and will be returning in the future... More

I am flabbergasted to see the previous review. We stayed here twice in May and can only describe it as fantastic. Everything about the place is great, food, service, position, and the welcome you get. We will continue to stay here at every opportunity as WE know you are guaranteed a relaxing stay at an affordable price. And to cap... More

As it was mine and my boyfriend's anniversary we decided to go away for a the weekend. When we got to this hotel we was instantly made to feel unwelcome by the hotel manager. He asked what we was planning on doing during our stay here and we replied with us just wanting to have a look around and find... More

On arrival we like to ask guests what they intend to do while they are in the lakes so we can inform them of the areas to visit, it is called customer service, when you said you wanted the cafe culture we told you the nearest place was in Ulverston 20 miles away. The complimentary drinks in the room are... More

My partner and I booked a last minute weekend away at The Wayside & Whisky Barn which we rang on the off chance they would have availability. To our surprise we were able to book direct for two nights bed and breakfast and save 10%...result! The hotel and rooms lived up to our expectations. Clean, comfortable and accommodating. We dined...

Before I address your comments I would just like to say how rude and childish I think your remarks are about Steven, the owner, calling him a bell boy is both insulting, derogatory and totally uncalled for, if you have complaints you should word them without being offensive. First of all thankyou for your comments about the accommodation being clean,... More

After booking a horse riding experience at the nearby Cumbrian heavy horses, I found this fantastic converted barn in the recommended section. The price was fantastic, with us coming from York and booking the weekend lastminute we were desperate to find somewhere under £100 per night. Wayside barn blew us away, the cleanliness and decoration of the annex was fantastic,... More

We had a 2 night stay in the annex chosen because of the cast iron roll top bath. It lived up to my expectations - we couldn't fault it. Being a harsh critic, I tried to, but couldn't. We ate out on the first evening but wished we hadn't. The food at Wayside was cooked to perfection! Lovingly restored barn,... More

Wayside has become our second home, particularly room 2 with the fabulous view! We love staying there. Lynne and Steve are terrific hosts. Fab food. Recommend eating dinner with them. Good location for visiting central lakes. Strongly recommend. Excellent choice if you like whisky too.

We have just come back from a 2 night stay here and it was no where near long enough! The barn has been beautifully and lovingly renovated, the food is gorgeous, the hosts are fabulous and the setting is stunning! I cannot find anything negative to say about our time there and we can't wait to come back!

With our 7th stay over and our 8th booked, need I say any more. Amazing hospitality, comfortable and welcoming accommodation, tremendous food, and ideally located for exploring the lakes, is it any wonder we keep returning. Roll on October.........

Wayside is more than just an extremely comfortable place to stay. The first thing that strikes you is the beautiful renovation of a centuries old property done by Steve and Lynn in a way that brings the building into the 21st century but with great respect to the historic structure. Anyone considering renovating an old building should stay here and... More
