Waterside House sits in an idyllic tranquil location just a short walk from Hawkshead. The accommodation is ideal for both those with and without a dog. Vanessa offers a friendly and relaxed stay at Waterside. Esthwaite lake is just a short walk away. Stayed in the barn which is excellent value for money with its separate entrance and own lounge....
