What a bed, best ever, struggled to get out of it. Breakfast, full on quality English, just the job for encouraging a snooze in that bed. Great coffee too....and the bath...deep and hot, sets you up for a snooze...in that bed, did I mention the bed.....

It's always a pleasure to see you all again and that you enjoy walking and going to the beach in this lovely quiet part of the Lake District National Park. We hope to see you again in the summer so you can sample more of what this part of the country has to offer. Thankyou.

We spent a fantastic couple of nights hidden away in this little piece of whisky heaven. The room was top notch with a great attention to detail and all facilities were more than catered for. Our hosts Steve and Lynn made us feel very welcome and at home and were always on hand to answer any questions and offer advice...

Thankyou for letting us know that you enjoyed your weekend away at Wayside, we are very pleased that you liked the food and especially the whisky, if you come again in winter we will make sure the fire is stoked up for you so you can enjoy a whisky by the fire with your feet up.

The rooms are spacious, comfortable, warm, beautifully decorated and highly relaxing. I eat in both nights and both dinners and breakfasts were delicious and filling. It is...

It is always nice to hear when our guests enjoy their stay and think the area is as beautiful as we do, next time you stay maybe you could climb Black Combe and enjoy the fantastic views you can see from the top. Thankyou for taking the time to post a review.

Great place. The room was beautiful and the food was really good too. The views are spectacular and there is an outdoor seating area to enjoy them from. The owner was very pleasant and made my breakfast 45 mins earlier than the given time so I could be in work on time. Hope to stay again

An absolute gem. We stayed in the annex with our dog Molly and it was just perfect. Beautiful and luxurious room and bathroom for us and a safe space for Molly to wander around.

Had a very comfortable two nights in this delightful family run business. The food was superb and nothing was any bother. The setting is wonderful and will be great in the summer. Plan to return later in the year and I might even buy some more whisky. Thanks for looking after me and my colleague.

Cameron is a fountain of knowledge and the range of whiskies was amazing due to the independence of Cadenhead. A wide range from 7 to 36 years old, normal strength to Cask strength and a wide variety of tastes and flavours with 6 on offer. One of the best so far and hopefully Cameron will return for Christmas .... Christmas...
