Historical Traveller Reviews of The Cottage in the Wood Hotel
A (semi) hidden gemfrom Mansilla
Our room was one of the smaller, and I think more basic, ones, but was very well presented. Little 'extras' left around. This is a small hotel, and the effort is made to make it a communal experience. Plenty of games and puzzles to tax your mind after dinner. Having said that, if you are not interested, thats up to you.
This brings me onto the food, which is superb. The price of dinner may put some people off - particularly compared to the room rates, which are more than reasonable, but dont be deterred! You will not regret it. Breakfast was great, and dinner was better.
The only possible drawback is the location. To me, this was an advantage, but its out on its own. You cant walk to the village pub, but you can walk into the hills, and some fabulous scenery.
What a wonderful, small hotel located in the woods.from sallyannbeagle
A Little Gem.from onebadmouse
From the warmest of welcomes on our arrival, to a fond farewell two days later, our stay was fabulous and we felt as though we were at home from home. Kath is lovely and you feel like nothing would be too much trouble. Indeed, she even managed to arrange some flowers for our anniversary when my husband asked her at VERY short notice!
The food is simply heavenly, a definite highlight. Our room was modern, very comfortable and spotlessly clean, with everything we needed and a couple of extra touches (like a proper coffee percolator) too.
We loved it and we will definitely be back.
A Perfect Retreatfrom SpackyF
The hospitality and service were faultless. We felt that nothing would have been too much trouble for Kath who wanted us to feel as though we were at home.
The food was lovely and both breakfast and dinner were delicious - be prepared to spend hours out walking to burn it all off!
One of the best things about not staying in a large hotel was the chance to get talking to other guests and compare notes about the walks we had taken that day.
Cottage in the Wood Exceeded All Expectationsfrom A.Jensen
Our Room: Very up-to-date bathroom, restful, tasteful décor, down comforter on queen size bed, soft pillows and sheets. Tea and coffee makings in the room. Amenities included cotton pads, cotton swabs for ears, and several kinds of soaps and body washes. Fluffy white towels, changed daily.
Breakfast (included in room price): Choice of full cooked English, or kipper/eggs/toast, or a third choice–different every day—plus cold buffet of cereals, museli, fruit, yogurt, juices. Liam is the chef; this is the Chez Panisse of the Lake District! Uses fresh, local ingredients whenever possible.
Dinners: Dined “in” the night we arrived, and it was so great tasting that we immediately reserved a spot for the next two nights. “Liam is a genius!” my husband said. Truly, a very refined cuisine for a small country house hotel.
Fantastic holidayfrom Leah_sedai
Kath and her staff were always helpful and friendly. The dinner and breakfast was always spot on! I loved the onion bread and sticky toffee pudding!
I have only praise for this place and definitely recommend it - although you will need a car!

Perfect Retreatfrom Den73
The food was a real highlight, both breakfast and dinner were superb. It's a great place to avoid the crowds, ditch the car and enjoy a stunning walk from the doorstep before returning for a slap up meal. Kath even offers a packed lunch on request, which came in very handy after tackling the Grisedale Pike ascent!
Fabulous !from lisalush70
Food was excellent, I am a vegetarian, and had a lovely meal, and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his Lamb.
We visited the Whinlatter Forest Park, and enjoyed a couple of walks.
Overall this place is a must for a anyone who wants some "pamper time", to enjoy the beautiful scenery and delights of the cosy cottage.
Thanks, to the owners Kath & Liam for making our 1 night break so memorable.

Top Local Tips for Keswick
Driving Times Always allow extra time. Narrow roads and traffic during the summer. Do not be in a rush!
Whinlatter Forest Whinlatter Forest is a great place to view the area and to have a great day out. The trails are very well marked and the walks can be easy to moderate.
a good size town - I has most of what you need. Dont' be fooled by the word "summer'. You will need some waterproofs and winterish things - esp if you are to go walking up the hills. We found the north is not as commercial and busy as the south - I think more water and possilby more fun fand socialising for families and younger set down south unless serious walkers. More peaceful and rugged country side north Cumbria.
