We had a lovely stay at Waterside House. Could not fault it. Very clean and comfortable, great food, pleasant host. Location suited us very well. Quiet and yet within walking distance of village. I do hope Vanessa is very proud of her achievement.

We booked Waterside as split trip - spending a couple of nights at the start of the week and returning again at the end, packing in some fell walking in Great Langdale in the middle. It was a perfect spot to unwind and made a good holiday great! It was an absolute pleasure to return at the end of trip.The... More

We have stayed in many B&Bs and Waterside is up there with the best! We felt very welcome and looked-after but the layout of the house meant we also had our privacy. The rooms were spacious, nicely furnished and very clean, with lovely views. We also had our two dogs with us and we felt that they were genuinely welcome... More

We stayed for 6 nights, choosing The Barn, as it gave us a bit more room, and meant my husband could stay up watching TV, when I went to bed early. Plenty of space, with lots of character, and very clean. Vanessa is the perfect hostess - very friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts are devine! The location can't be... More

I thank Sue very much for her kind words as she states initially how lovely she thought Waterside is, I really appreciate all the amazing reviews I have had and I equally have had some pretty amazing guests who I feel have left as genuine friends rather than just visitors, this is of course why I love this job.

This is a gem of a place - and I can't wait to return. The rooms are spacious and comfortable . in fact it's like you're staying in a cottage with B&B. I went with family and we rented the three rooms for 2 nights. The host, Vanessa, could not have been friendlier and her breakfasts were fantastic. The atmosphere... More

We stayed here for 2 nights for a family wedding. We were a party of 5 and booked all 3 rooms. Fabulous weekend. Vanessa is the perfect host. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was brilliant. Hawkshead just 10 mins stroll away. The rooms are really comfortable with lots of space. Will def return.

We stayed at this wonderful B&B in April/May for 9 nights. It is in a peaceful and beautiful location about 10 minutes walk from Hawkshead. Vanessa as usual was a charming hostess and nothing was too much trouble for her. The rooms are spotlessly clean. The breakfasts are truly excellent and we enjoyed exploring the many options available. Vanessa uses... More

We had 2 nights at Waterside in March. It's an excellent B&B, the room (Claife) was spotless clean and just perfect for our stay. It's a dog friendly place and we took our Cocker Spaniel with us. You would normally expect dog friendly places to be a bit rough around the edges, not this place, it's immaculate throughout. Breakfast excellent,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in the Claife Room, and it is truly a wonderful B&b in a beautiful setting right by a lake, which is perfect for a little walk for the dogs. Completely dog friendly and they were very welcome - the Claife Room has a little TV snug room which the dogs slept in. The breakfasts... More

We stayed here for a long weekend break. Waterside is a fabulous setting just outside the village. Our room was spotless and cosy - the breakfasts were excellent. It is hardly surprising that it has received all 5 star ratings as Vanessa is a perfect host. We will certainly be returning.
