    We had a great time staying at Wayside, really enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere the cottage has. We are looking at booking it next year. We love that area of Cumbria and stay in the village every year but that was the first time we had stayed in Wayside.

    Had a great time at the cottage. Well equipped and in a lovely setting. A very nice, friendly setting with loads of places to walk. Hadrian's Wall, Durham and Newcastle all within easy reach. Only thing to be wary of is availability of food within the village. The only pub can be a little hit or miss for meals so make sure that you have a back up in the fridge! There is a restaurant across the road which does serve really great food but make sure you book as it is run more of a hobby than a standard restaurant.

    Fantastic cottage, spacious double bedrooms and chefs kitchen. In the middle of many walks (the pub at Garrigill has closed down if you plan on getting in drink during a walk).

    As it snowed heavily the storage heaters struggled to keep house warm so we were grateful for the two coal fires.Other than this we had a lovely time and will book again for the summertime so we can explore the area fully.The house had everything we needed with nice homely touches and the local people were really nice and welcoming.

    Stayed at Wayside for a weekend in January 2017, what an excellent base. The cottage is great. When we arrived, we collected the key from Keith (opposite) who was so warm & welcoming while showing us the basics. We had a walk behind the cottage to the mines area on the afternoon we arrived which was so picturesque. On the Saturday we went to Hadrian Wall for a walk. The weather was cold but sunny, it had also snowed on the Friday, so the scenery was so beautiful. The coal fire was lit every night which was great. (coal supplied, but took extra with us). WILL DEFINATLEY BE BACK

    A lovely place for a walking holiday, lots of local walks and the locals are so friendly too but close enough to the Lakes, also if you want to enjoy the Hartside Summit and the market town Alston. The cottage was lovely, especially the lounge and kitchen, I particularly enjoyed watching my Husband trying to light the coal fire - hours of entertainment!
