About this Bed and Breakfast

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 between 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. Keswick & Cockermouth are a short drive away.

We offer a range of accommodation. Our delightful Cottage Rooms provide cosy & comfortable accommodation at affordable prices. The Mountain rooms offer breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside and Treetops, in the loft, provides a spectacular night sky. The Garden Room is ideal for that special occasion and features a stunning wet room and seating area with digital TV. In 2012, 'The Cottage won the Cumbria Tourism Guest accommodation award.
