This was our second visit at Wayside and once again we are very pleased. Steve and Lynn were very welcoming and helpful. We set out for Scafell Pike and they supplied us with a map and sandwiches to help us on our way. The food and drink was exceptional and Steve was very accommodating by making us an alternative sauce... More

My partner and I had booked the annexe as our dog would be allowed. The room was fantastic and the whole building had been finished to a very high standard as I complimented Steven on several times (working in construction the details really stood out to me). The hosts were very accommodating and friendly without being overly intrusive. We breakfasted... More

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

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.

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.
