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 Restaurant with Rooms that has been lovingly restored. ‘The Cottage’ provides a tranquil and relaxing ambience and is the perfect base for exploring the magic of the Lakes whilst enjoying creative and original food. The quality of our food and wine has won several regional and national awards and gained recognition in the leading food and accommodation guides.

Ideally situated near 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.
