The Lakeside Country Guesthouse was the last B&B of a short trip where three of us shared a room. We were greeted on arrival by Sharon with a smile and a big pot of excellent tea and biscuits. After a short and pleasant conversation when she recommended local attractions and three differently priced places to eat dinner she gave directions...

Hello Jackie, We are glad you enjoyed our professional service, clean rooms and smoked salmon for breakfast. I know from our chats that your American guests also delighted in the style of the house but along with that come en-suites that are indeed "slices of the original bedroom" and not the purpose built hotel bathrooms that you are used to...

We stayed the Lodge for a week in June. It was booked through an agency at fairly short notice as we needed to be in the area while visiting family. With a name like "Lakeside Lodge" you might reasonably expect this place to have some access to the water...but no, you can’t see Bassenthwaite Lake from the property and there's...

LOCATON Lakeside Lodge is so called because it is part of Lakeside Guest House. We have never advertised the fact that the Lodge has lake views (although the Guest House does through the trees.) The sailing club is virtually opposite the Guest House so it stands to reason the lake can't be far. I have never known any one in...

My husband and I and our dog enjoyed our week long stay on the cottage at the rear of guest house. It was like a home from home and had everything we needed.

My wife and I returned home from Lakeside a few hours ago and it's one of the few times that we felt we were leaving old friends, such is the hospitality extended by Sharon and Arnie.
