What a wonderful stay my husband and I have just had at the whisky barn!! Steve and Lynn couldn't have done more to make us feel at home. The setting for the whisky barn is lovely, Black Coombe sits just behind and is a great place for a walk with the dogs (if you have them with you). The sea... More

Touring the lakes we happened to arrive to this wonderful inn - the warm welcome, comfortable room and especially the excellent food cooked by Steve (not to mention the large selection of single malts) created a wonderful experience. Thanks!!!

There's only word to describe the 'Wayside' and that's Quality. The setting, views, fixtures & fittings, presentation, food, service, hospitality and cleanliness are second to none. Nothing's too much trouble and if you asked me would I recommend it/stay there again. Definitely and I am very shortly.

My friend and I recently stayed at The Wayside for several nights and really enjoyed our break. Our accommodation was spotlessly clean and comfortable and the décor was finished to a high standard. Steve and Lynn were friendly and helpful hosts who were able to give us good advice on the best places to visit during our stay. The food... More

Have just had a few wonderful days here in the annexe. Beautiful room with a really comfortable bed. The bathroom is very spacious and the Radox is most welcome after a hard day walking or riding. Steven produced some fine food and Lynn's sticky toffee pudding is a delight. My husband received a tasting education on Scotch whisky from Steven... More

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in England and at Wayside and we hope you had a pleasant journey back to Australia. Steven probably enjoyed the whisky tasting as much as Rob did, he loves sharing his passion of whisky with our guests. Thankyou for this lovely review. More

The Wayside Guest House has exceptional reviews - and it is a reputation well earned. If you want to have a base for exploring those less well known and populated parts of the Lakes - though all the more beautiful for it - I could not recommend a better place. The accomodation is gorgeous, beautifully finished and very welcoming. Steven... More

Thankyou Dennis and Denise for your lovely review, it is nice to hear that guests have enjoyed their stay. We agree with you that this is a great spot for visiting the quieter part of the Lake District, you have the hills and the sea, the best of both worlds. More

My husband and I returned from wayside today, spending 2 nights in the annex with our dog. This place is a hidden gem, the attention to detail is outstanding and you certainly get the feeling that there has been a lot of love, sweat and tears go into making the experience just right. The food was tasty and fresh and... More

My best friend and I stayed with Steve and Lynn last week for two nights at the Wayside and Whisky Barn, whilst on a riding break in Cumbria. From the moment we arrived to the moment we reluctantly left everything was perfect. Steve and Lynn are the most welcoming hosts as well as being genuine lovely people. Everything about Wayside...

Excellent hosts. Fantastic food. What more can you say. Lynn and Steve go above and beyond the call of duty as your hosts. This is our third time visiting, and will not be our last. Hopefully back in autumn. Try Lynn's sticky toffee pudding, it's fab. Will try the black pudding next time ;) Promise. Mr and Mrs B, Burnley.
