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

We've just come back from a 3 day break at the Wayside. I'd seen the reviews and photos when my other half told me he'd booked us in there,so I was hopeful. I always say, "I'll leave a review on that" but never get around to it.. But for the benefit of you reading this, I will.. Reviews are important... More

This small hotel is a farm and barn dating from 1637, beautifully restored I believe by Steve and Lynne. We recommend this for a very pleasant stay in even the chilliest of weather. Our first night we had dinner in the restaurant which was a good choice as we were so tired after our journey. Although slightly on the pricey... More

Stayed here from 18th - 21st December for a break before Christmas with my boyfriend. Absolutely amazing, the setting was fabulous and inside the decor is just what we like. So relaxing sitting by the fire with the Christmas tree next to us. Perfect way to spend a Christmas break. Steve was extremely helpful in showing us routes to get... More

Steven and I are so glad you enjoyed your stay just before Christmas and that you liked your room, it is a quieter side of the Lake District and perfect for relaxing and sightseeing. Sitting in front of the fire with a whisky is a perfect way to end the day, we hope to see you again sometime. More

Back again and nothing has changed! Good people / Good Food / Good rooms. The place has character and you feel like you are at home. If you haven't stayed here, then you really should. Beds way too comfortable - so set your alarm or your May well sleep in!!!
