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...

I was recently here for a week. Brilliant hosts and lovely room. Ate there every night and can't praise the food enough. Next time I would indulge in the extensive selection of whisky there. I would definitely go back and stay here for a break.

We had a really lovely weekend away, we'd book the annexe part of the hotel to stay in, which looks amazing in the pictures and totally lives up and exceeds your expectations. Its beautifully decorated, well looked after and spotlessly clean. The bed is amazing and so so comfy, exactly what you want after a long walk. It also has...

This was our fourth time here for a new year. Yet again we had a fantastic fun filled time. Steve, Lynn and their daughter Kayleigh ensured we had a very relaxing break. The only downside was we had to leave to come home! The bedrooms are clean and comfortable and the food excellent. The place is convenient for exploring the...

Our 18th stay since May 2012 and fourth for new year. What a fabulous time we had. Felt like a four day house party. Steve and Lynne and their daughter Kayleigh are such fun to be with. The rooms are very smart and comfortable and food is fresh, well cooked and beautifully presented. We have already rebooked for April.

We stayed at the Wayside barn for our recent trip to Cumbrian Heavy Horses. We were lucky enough to stay in the Annex, and it really was an absolute pleasure. The surroundings were immaculate, with a lovely feel of traditional quality. Little details like Radox in the bathroom for post-riding baths showed how much thought our hosts put into our...
