What a super and lucky find!!
Stayed at Waterside House for the 1st time (won't be the last) with my wife and almost 4 year old granddaughter, Sarah during October mid-term. It was everything we could hope for.
Vanessa is the perfect hostess. When I booked I told Vanessa, Sarah was going to have a birthday at the end of our visit and there was a birthday gift awaiting her and the breakfast room had birthday banners round the wall. Excellent touch and Sarah was really chuffed.
Our accommodation was "The Barn" - which has a well appointed lounge and upstairs bathroom/toilet and very large double bedroom. For Sarah, there was a zed-bed with a Tinkerbell duvet (again, lovely touch). The layout gave my wife and I freedom to watch TV after Sarah had gone to bed and we could make use of the wine glasses / tea making facilities provided. As the nights were getting colder we appreciated the excellent central heating system which gave us the warmth and ample hot water required.
Breakfast was well cooked and as much as you wanted - you won't go away hungry.
Short walk into Hawkshead saved on high cost of car parking and if you're guests of Waterside you can get 10% discount on meals at King's Arms in village (car park free after 6:00pm).
Vanessa is full of life and makes you more than welcome with details of how to get about the area and other useful tips.
