    “Atmosphere is relaxing, welcoming & warm”

    It was our second stay at this lovely hotel. We returned once again because of the lovely ambience of the environment. Kath and her staff were attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The food is exceptional and I defy anyone not to enjoy it! We felt our weekend break was exceptional value for money and would recommend it to anyone if they are looking for somewhere peaceful and enjoyable to stay. The pleasant stay was enhanced by the 5 minute walk into the enchanting Whinlatter Forest.

    The Cottage in the Wood Country Hotel and restaurant is a former 17thC coaching inn situated in the heart of the Whinlatter forest near Keswick, in one of the most beautiful and dramatic areas of the Lake District National Park.

    The Cottage in the Wood is five miles from Keswick in an area of the Lake District National Park that inspired the famous author and fell walker, A W Wainwright to write ‘that the North Western fells are the most delectable of them all’.

    The hotel provides a peaceful and tranquil location, yet is only ten minutes drive from the bustling market town of Keswick. We are ideally situated between the lakes of Bassenthwaite, Derwentwater, Buttermere and Crummock Water.
