“Perfect and ultra comfortable home from home”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I cant bear to look yet actually- I still want to be back there so much! It was the best 7 nights sleep Ive had and I was surprised to find a lounge that was large enough and with plenty of seating for 6 adults, 3 dogs and a baby. The owners bent over backwards to ensure we had every comfort and were on the phone to check all was well. It was immaculately clean and tastefully decorated. There was a very informative file full of instructions and ideas for walks etc. Its been a long time since I was so reluctant to leave a holiday rent and I would completely recommend it.

“Wonderful family Christmas at Woodside Cottage”
Reviewed 18 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We enjoyed a wonderful family Christmas at Woodside Cottage. Although a beautiful old historic cottage, the kitchen and bathrooms are modern and up to date with all the latest mod cons and the cottage is warm and spacious. Towels, extra bedding, cleaning equipment etc are all supplied and the dishwasher was such a bonus, especially at Christmas time! The cottage is beautifully decorated throughout and the beds are so comfortable. The owners even decorated the cottage for Christmas and left us a present under the tree! Set in a lovely quiet rural location, with countryside walks from the front door, you are however only a hop, skip and a jump from the ferry, aquarium and some lovely hotels/pubs. Hawkshead, Windermere and Ambleside are a short car journey away. We would definitely recommend this cottage and would love one day to return.

Many thanks for your review. We are very fortunate to have such a wonderful walk to High Dam on our door step. It is one of the most peaceful lakes in the Lake District. A lake much favoured by Wainwright.

“A lovely cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 7 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I stay at woodside with my wife, daughter and two elderly parents. All found the cottage lovely and welcoming. The place was clean and once we had worked out how to work everything, warm, especially the wood stove.

The owners provided lots of information on local sites and activites, games, sky tv and even a BBQ to keep us all amused, as well as a good internet connection.

The location was quiet and beautiful with some great local walks. While we were extremely lucky with the weather, I do not think it would have mattered, we would have has a great time nonetheless.

A perfect place to stay when exploring the Lake District

“Perfect spring break.”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Beautifully restored cottage, perfect for a break with family or friends of all ages.
The owners were extremely polite,helpful & prompt in replying to enquiries and provided excellent information prior to our trip.
The cottage has been lovingly restored to a high standard and is warm, friendly, homely, well equipped and extremely tidy and clean. We were greeted with a warm welcome of tea, biscuits and wine left in the cottage.
The cottage is in an excellent location for exploring the lakes, for either walking or by car, again excellent information in the cottage on the local area.
We took our little dog and the cottage was pooch friendly, he was right at home by the fire!
I would definately recommend this cottage if you were looking for a break in the lake district. A very relaxing weekend in a beautiful setting.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 27 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Stayed at Woodside Cottage for only 2 nights in January for my Birthday weekend - but 2 nights was not enough - we could have stayed for a week!
We came with my Partner, Mum, Dad, Sister and dogs and all were perfectly catered for!
The photos do not do the Cottage justice - it is so much more beautiful in reality.
All Bedding is fluffy and pillows plump, decor beautiful and bathrooms modern.
WIll be coming to stay again in the summer months.
