My partner and I stayed in the annex at Wayside last Summer and we had such an enjoyable time. Steve literally waited on us hand on foot and couldn't do enough for us. The annex was just perfect and the bed was so comfortable - just heaven. The food was also delicious - no need to eat out. Would recommend... More

We have just come home from a 2 night stay at Wayside Guest House. Wow it was an amazing place to stay - the family room was perfect for us, plenty of room, and lovely decorated and clean. The owner Steve couldn't be more accommodating suggesting great places to go visiting. The breakfast was perfect. We also had an evening... More

The Lake District is a beautiful place and if you love it when it is wet and cold you will love it in the Spring/Summer even more. Thankyou for your kind remarks, it was really nice to meet you all and we are so glad you enjoyed yourselves. More

Wow - what a fantastic place, Steve & Lynn. You were so welcoming - even one of your dogs was ready with a smile when we arrived. We were warned beforehand that the weather was not always very good in Cumbria but, I have to say, apart from one early morning when it downpoured before we went out, we had... More

Impressive, Outstanding, Excellent, I could go on. Steve & Lynn you have a gorgeous Guest House and we did not want to leave. From the moment we arrived, we felt we had known you for ages you were so welcoming. The accommodation you have spent time on putting together is so remarkable and so well done.

I booked this B+B after reading all the fantastic reviews previous guests had written. I was not disappointed. The location is stunning, and the building is homely and inviting. Our bedroom was a great size, with a very comfy bed and high ceilings & the ensuite bathroom had a large shower and bath (which I regret not using). Steve and... More

We have just returned from a 4 night break at this fantastic little Hotel. The hotel itself is in a stunning setting and both Steve and Lynn are extremely welcoming and superb hosts.

After a stressful few months my boyfriend and I decided to 'escape to the country' and visit the Lake District for a long weekend. We came across Wayside on Booking.com and were immediately drawn in by the exposed beams and picturesque setting, booking the Annex for 3 nights. Previous reviews which suggest that 'young couples' shouldn't stay here are nonsense;... More

We visited the Wayside for Dinner one Saturday Evening. Most of the people eating in the restaurant were staying at the guest house. We traveled from Barrow in Furness. The people who run the place were very nice and welcoming. The food was really good and cooked fresh as it was ordered. I noticed that most on the people in... More

Rude, ignorant manager. Definitely wouldn't advise young couples to stay here. Made our stay very uncomfortable with his attitude. Also "hotel" in the middle of nowhere so there was absolutely nothing to do unless you were prepared to drive a long way. Poor all round experience.
