“Great B+B in great location”
The title really says it all... the B&B is immaculate and the host is extremely welcoming ideal location and cyclist and dog friendly.. highly recommend this place. Stayed this time in the Barn having stayed in all the rooms previously this one if almost self catering really is awesome
“Just perfect”
Waterside House is the perfect location for a visit to Hawkshead just 10 min walk out side the village .You won't be disappointed by this beautiful B&B we stayed in the barn room and it was everything you would expect nice decor very clean and the bed was really comfortable all the little extra's were provided tea/coffee biscuits , in the bathroom shampoo shower gel etc
Vanessa is such a bubbly happy person and nothing is too much trouble breakfast is perfect and served pipping hot
All I can say is we'll defiantly go back Highly recommended!
This is our 2nd stay at Waterside House, we've stayed in the Barn Room and the Claiffe Room and both were lovely and perfect for our dog. Each room was beautifully decorated and it was great to have a separate room for our teenage daughter. Vanessa was lovely as always and her breakfasts are the best. Very handy spot for the nearby dog friendly pubs and the attractions of the beautiful south and central lakes. You can also use a pass to use the Low Wood swimming pool which was great. One of the best places we've stayed and we will definitely be returning.
“Short Break at the lovely Waterside House B&B”
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. Only wish we could have stayed longer although we will definitely be returning
“Fantastic dog friendly B&B ”
This is our 3rd visit here at Waterside and as always, we are so well looked after. This time we have stayed for 7 days and will be sad to leave tomorrow.

Vanessa ' s breakfasts are amazing and so much choice, we have never had better anywhere.

We have stayed in different rooms at different times here and they are always beautifully well kept and spotless.

Vanessa is always there to help with anything you need and is such a lovely lady.

5 minutes walk into Hawkshead and this area is so central for Coniston, Ambleside, Grasmere and even Keswick just a short drive away. Lots of great walks to do too.

We highly recommend this beautiful spot and will definitely be back for a 4th visit and more :).
Stayed August 2016, travelled with family
The breakfast was yummy, wide variety of fruit, cereals etc, cooked breakfast was great and lots of other options available also.
Vanessa, the owner was lovely, very friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be back soon.
“Fantastic place.”
I emailed Vanessa on the off chance there was availability. As luck would have it, she had a cancellation, and offered us the room.
I only tried here after reading all the reviews.
It was that good, I decided to sign up and leave a review. A very warm welcome, nothing too much trouble, very clean room in a lovely and peaceful part of the lakes.
It was everything we could of wanted, Vanessa is a '1 off', lovely lady who will do her upmost to ensure you have a great stay.
We will 100% be coming back here!
