What a Great Stay
5 stars 5

'We stayed in this wonderful guest house for four nights, and Sharon and Arnie Helling were the bests hosts we could ever imagine. They are so friendly, welcoming, and helpful, that our stay with them couldn\'t have been better. Sharon is a font of knowledge regarding any needed touring info, and Arnie is an excellent chef. The location is great; right across the way from an excellent restaurant/pub, and down the road from a distillery. Quaint Cockermouth is just a short drive, and the rest of the area is in easy reach. This is a wonderful place to stay.....just so it.'

Every question was answered fully with much information provided on local activity such as walks and where to eat. Breakfast was outstanding and plentiful. This experience has opened my eyes to using B & B\'s more in the future. I felt I was welcomed into a home not just accomodation. Rooms were comfortable and very clean with a great bathroom. A good shower, needed at the end of days walking. Overall and excellent experience and brilliantly run business.'

'This review brought a tear to my eye. Really nice of you to take the time to put your thoughts into words and much appreciated by us! I particularly liked your thoughts about using B&B\'s rather than hotels in the future. Guest Houses have really moved up a notch in the past decade. Owners work extra hard because they rely on return business and they want you to have a great time and work hard to help it be a success for you. Hotels in my opinion offer a less personalized experience. Top Tip. Find the Guest Houses on Booking.com by all means but visit the Guest House\' website before booking with Booking.com. We will always give you better rates for coming direct and we have discount tickets for various events, theatre and restaurants when booking directly.'

'An enjoyable one night stay. Comfortable, clean and spacious room with beautiful view to Skiddaw. A good night\'s sleep followed by tasty breakfast. Sharon and Arnie were faultless in their hospitallity. We would have happily stayed longer if we had more time! Only a couple of small points: would have liked a bit more water pressure in the shower(although the temperature was fine and plenty of space). The other point was (just personally) I prefer not to have music/radio playing at breakfast but having said that, it was discreet and tasteful and I know that it can \'help\' when you have strangers all sitting together. Our breakfast experience was actually very good and our fellow guests all nice people. In summary, ours was a good experience and would happily return for more!Would like to give 4 and a half stars.'

'Hi Philip. Glad you enjoyed your stay. When we created larger shower rooms last year we installed a larger higher up header tank which gives us the best water pressure possible. Remember if all 17 guests are showering at breakfast time it may effect the pressure differently to when showering at home. Look forward to seeing you again.'

We were given all the infomation that was required and more.We were pointed in the right direction for our evening meals and just a short distance away. For all you are at the top of the lakes, it is very easy to get to the other Lakes, Mountain walks and other interesting attractions. We look forward to returning, in the not too distant future.

Impeccable Service and Best Guest House in Lake District
5 stars 5

'We had an amazing time in Lake district during Easter 2015. Sharon has been very helpful providing transport information before we got there as we were taking public transport. The moment we reached the guest house, we were greeted by some freshly brewed tea and biscuits, and Sharon has kindly offered advice on places to eat, things to do etc. It is also located away from the main area, near the Lake which is what we were looking for as we wanted to escape the city and live a countryside life during Easter. The guest house was kept very clean and tidy, and it felt very cosy. I love the English Victorian set up of the house. We were also provided a fresh towels everyday. The breakfast served was what i was looking forward every morning. I would wake up even before my alarm, feeling very hungry as i cannot wait to eat the breakfast! The choice on the menu is extensive and Arnie the chef is extremely flexible to whip up anything for you. Sharon would make sure you would not leave the guest house empty stomach. All in all, the service at Lakeside Guest House was impeccable, far exceeded my expectations. And i would recommend this to my friends and family if they are heading to Lake District.'

'I only stayed for one unfortunately but Sharon & Arnold were very welcoming & answered any questions I had about the local area. They recommended a couple of local places to eat which suited any budget, the room was very clean & had a homely feel to it. Next time I come to the lakes I will stay with them again , would recommended to family & friends.'

Fab Host, Gorgeous Guest House and views
5 stars 5

'Stayed at the lovely guesthouse this weekend. On a last minute booking, I booked the lake view room, with a lovely view of the lake and the mountains. We turned up early Sharon, was very welcoming and accommodating, happily showed us to our room early so we could get unpacked. I would recommend booking a place at local restaurant/pub, we couldn't get a table as fully booked up Sharon advised next time we book if we want a table to let her know and she would call ahead for us. We still had a walk over to the pub on the night as only two minutes walk. Probably one of the best nights sleep I've ever had. My hubby is a fussy sleeper and needs window open every night. We had all three sash windows open and were very surprised how quiet it was. Breakfast was wonderful in the morning, quite a choice not just full English. Beautiful home made jams (which i had to buy some). Will be back soon, highly recommended.'

'Lovely guest house that was within a 15 min drive to Keswick. Away from the touristy and crowded Windermere. Sharon was an excellent host. We had warm cups of tea upon arrival, and she gave great recommendations for eating areas nearby. She also suggested an excellent driving itinerary that brought us to see wonderful valley and mountain views. The room was cosy and clean, with clean linen and towels provided. It was also tidied up daily. Breakfast was fantastic, with a range of breakfast foods available upon order. Would definitely recommend anyone to come and stay here!'

5 stars 5

'My wife and I returned home from Lakeside yesterday 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. The place has a lived-in feel so it's much like the comfort and relaxed feel of home ... to us, anyway. The breakfasts are good, well cooked and plentiful. The rooms are clean and comfy. Parking is good, provided all guests park considerately. Nicely situated for touring the northern Lakes and just a short drive to Keswick. Close enough to the A66 to get around and far enough away that the traffic noise doesn't intrude: very quiet. Please read all the notes in the 'welcome' book in your room; Sharon has gone to a lot of trouble to include local info with regard to eating out and local walks. These two people are really lovely and deserve to continue to do well with their guest house, which I know they will. Sharon and Arnie, thank you so much for a lovely stay in your home, we miss you both already and hope to return in the future some time.'

'Located on Bassentwhaite Lake the guest house was a great base for exploring the Lake district. The house itself is a beautiful Victorian build and overlooks the lake. It's only a 5 min. drive into Braithwaite or a 10 min. drive into Keswick or Cockermouth which both offer many good options for dinner. Sharon was lovely and very welcoming. She was very helpful in giving advice for walks and routes. The rooms are very nice, clean and very well looked after. Breakfast was a choice of an excellent Cumbrian full breakfast made fresh to order, or eggs, sausage or bacon rolls and a buffet of cereals, fruit and yogurt. I can absolutely recommend staying at the Lakeside Country Guest and I would book again anytime.'

The rooms were a good standard and the tea and mince pies on arrival were a nice touch as was the warm Mulled Wine on New Years Eve with an open invite to join Sharon and Arnie for champagne and nibbles at Midnight. Our 13 year old son was made very welcome and we would definitely recommend this Guest House to others.'
