About Us

Luxury Guest House and B & B in the Lake District town of Millom, Cumbria

Welcome to Wayside Guest Accommodation, our luxury guest house situated on the west coast of the Lake District in Millom, Cumbria, we provide bed and breakfast accommodation with four unique styled bedrooms and an a la carte menu for evening meals in either our lounge or bar area.

The building was purchased by ourselves (Lynn and Steven Johns) in 2004. We fell in love with it immediately, it had so much potential and character. The large and small barn were literally derelict. We obtained planning permission in 2006 and commenced renovations straight away. We won’t bore you with the details but needless to say it has been a long hard learning curve. We have done the majority of the work ourselves, but the craftsmen we got in to help have been fantastic, we have tried to give the building the respect and consideration that it deserves, and hopefully we have succeeded, leaving many of the original features. Every guest bedroom is different and has its own character. The individually styled bedrooms are large with high beamed ceilings and oak window seats. The Annexe is a building separate from the barn, but attached to the actual farmhouse itself, with a totally independent entrance.

Where possible all our food is locally sourced and freshly made. Our eggs are purchased from the farm down the road which are very free range eggs as you will see if you go past them on the left hand side going towards Millom. Any food waste that can be recycled goes into our compost bins to generate liquid fertiliser and compost which we then utilise on our gardens. We grow our own herbs and in the future we hope to grow our own vegetables in a plot at the back of the property.

We will endeavour to make your stay with us an enjoyable one we like to feel that we have a relaxed and informal atmosphere and we hope that your stay will allow you will take time to appreciate the west coast of the Lake District and Millom, in this beautiful part of Cumbria with all that it has to offer.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.

We would just like to add a note of thanks to all the people who have worked with us to make our dream of owning and running a luxury guest house in the Lake District, especially to our neighbours who have helped us from the beginning when we were struggling and throughout our renovation and ongoing landscaping, thankyou.  We would also like to thank our guests that have stayed with us for putting fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor and revisiting us time after time it makes all the hard work worthwhile.

Thankyou to all the people who made this possible.
