Welcome to The Cottage in the Wood

Located in the heart of Whinlatter, England's only Mountain forest, The Cottage in the Wood is a 17th century coaching inn that has been lovingly restored. 'The Cottage' provides a tranquil and relaxing ambience and is the perfect base for exploring the North Western fells of the Lakes.

Ideally situated close to the bustling market town of Keswick and close to the lakes of Bassenthwaite, Derwentwater, Buttermere, Crummock water and Loweswater, the area is ideal for walking, cycling, sailing, golf and a host of adventure activities. We offer a range of boutique style accommodation, from our luxurious Garden room to quaint Cottage rooms, all recently refurbished.

Our menu uses seasonal and local ingredients to produce creative and original dishes. The quality of our food and wine has won several regional and national awards and gained recognition in the leading food and accommodation guides.
