Woodlands Country House
Ranked #1 of 1 Ireby B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 March 2008

Our feeling about Woodlands was mixed. It was friendly and breakfast was excellent - a good, varied menu, although when we asked for porridge ("on request") we felt a little as if we were being unreasonable, somehow. We did not take the evening meal but the menu looked good. On arrival we were provided with tea and some superb cake.

The room was "superior" but I am at a complete loss to see why. It had the feel of somewhere which would have warranted the price 20 or 30 years ago but needs some attention now. The en-suite facilities were tired. I'd stay again, but only at two thirds of the price, as, sadly, this doesn't deliver what other establishments in the area do for the same money. It needs a bit of attention.

Reviewed 4 September 2004

This hotel is in a very peaceful and picturesque location but within easy reach of the north Lake District and Keswick. The enthusiastic new owners have just taken over a well established business and are in the process of adopting there own style. The breakfasts were first class as were the optional and reasonably priced evening meals. There is a good and moderately priced wine list and a small but comfortable bar. The room was adequate although the furnishings and bathroom needed some updating. The fact that dogs are allowed in some of the rooms must be a plus in an area renowned for its spectacular walks. Overall this hotel offers the friendliness and character so often promised but found to be lacking in many other hotels.
