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.

We have just returned from a two night stay at Wayside with my husband and 14 month old son. Wayside is the most perfect place to stay when visiting the lakes. Steve and Lynn have done an incredible job renovating the barn and the attention to detail is unbelievable. The care and thought which has gone into making Wayside so... More

My husband booked a short trip away from London for us to the Lake District. Neither of us had been before and weren't sure what to expect although we knew we wanted relaxation and a little exploring, and Wayside offers both of these and more. We were delighted to arrive at this out of the way cottage style accommodation which... More

We (two families of four, including children and teenagers) annually stop off for two nights on our way home to Berkshire from high in the Highlands. Our criteria is that the end of our holiday continues the relaxation, calm and beauty of the Highlands. We like the children to have the freedom to roam outside, and the adults to enjoy... More

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.
