Thank you Steven and Lynn for a wonderful 4 night stay. Our room was very comfortable and spacious. Lovely shower products. Steven is an excellent cook, we ate at the guest house 2 nights and were not disappointed. A wonderful location to explore the western coast, catch the steam train from Ravenglass and walk up the Black Combe. We also drive to Scarfell pike (45 min drive early morning) to climb during our stay.

Date of stay: August 2018

Stayed here recently for the second time in just over two years and was not disappointed. This is a very well appointed, cut above the rest, B&B renowned for its stock of over 250 whiskies. All the rooms are finished and furnished to a high standard and are very comfortable as are the bar and dining area. Steve and Lynne are the perfect hosts and make you feel very welcome. As well as a fantastic breakfast you can also dine in the evening, I can highly recommend the rib eye steak. Steve and Lynne have an excellent knowledge of the area and are only too happy to recommend places to visit. Thank you both once again for a cracking weekend, from the Yorkshire four!

Myself, partner and Dog (Alfie) stayed here for a couple of days last week and had a great time, The owners Steve and Lynne was so welcoming and knew so much about the local area which enhanced our stay, We stayed in the Annexe which was lovely and spacious and ideal having Alfie with us, We stayed on a dinner, bed and breakfast package which was a very good deal as all the meals we had were of a high standard from start to finish and all home made using local produce where available, thanks again Steve & Lynne hope see you again soon

Room tip: If you staying for a couple of nights the Annexe is very comfortable and spacious.

My wife, came home from Work and asked me "I don't suppose you have sorted out a break for us at the Wayside" I hadn't made plans but I know that we have enjoyed our trips there before. Quick Phone call, having found out that a room was available, and we were offered a Dinner Included deal which sealed the decision straight away. As usual a very friendly welcome from Steven and Lynne, who make you feel like old friends visiting. The breakfast was exemplary and really set you up for the day exploring but the evening meals were also delightful. Beautifully cooked and presented...with excellent choices of "after" if you have any corners left to fill. The bar is a wonderful place for any Whisky lover, but whatever your tipple of choice, you will not be disappointed.

If you like exploring a less busy but equally beautiful part of the lakes you would be well advised to base yourself here. The Duddon Valley, Eskdale, and Wastwater and more are in easy travelling distance...and you will appreciate them even more if your stay at the Wayside.

Room tip: Over three visits have stayed in 2 of the rooms. Both excellently appointed with lovely comfortable bed and en-suite Bathroom facilities.

Lovely place, lovely people. Our ninth year visiting the Wayside several times each year, we can't keep away! Just returned from another wonderful visit and we are going back in three weeks. The accommodation, the food, the sights and most of all the company, hosts, Steve and Lynn are just the best. Thank you for a great weekend, roll on the next!
