My fiancé surprised me with a night at the cottage in the wood, we had dinner bed and breakfast, we we're greeted on arrival by Kath the owner where we were showed to our room, (tree tops) the room was immaculate with an amazing bathroom. Being a chef for over 20 years I was really looking forward to the meal in the evening and I wasn't disappointed, we chose the 3 course menu, I can easily say this was the BEST meal I have ever eaten, the precision of the cooking was outstanding and the Presentation was stunning, this chef is really going places he has such a light touch and concentrates on flavour. It won't be long before this place receives a star and rightly so! The stay was finished off by a fantastic breakfast cooked by Liam the partner of Kath the owner, perfectly cooked scrambled eggs seasoned perfectly! An amazing stay would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for something special!
Thanks Kath and Liam, Rich & TEAM for making our stay so memorable we will be back

We recently began a two week trip in the UK with two nights at Cottage in the Wood. Kath and Liam could not have been nicer and our stay could not have been more enjoyable. Beautiful location in the Whinlatter Pass just above Keswick. Gorgeous views, outstanding food, courteous staff, and caring owners - one of our very best B&B stays anywhere!

Visited the Cottage in the Woods yesterday for lunch . Our children had bought us a voucher for Xmas. What can I say except it was fabulous. We were met by a very nice young girl and served by a lovely lady whose knowledge of food and wine was excellent . The food was beautifull and well presented .I can highly recommend a visit there. Even the chef explained how he uses un ripened Strawberries in some of his creations ,explaining what he does to them before hand . Even some chefs cooking for the Wimbledon Banquet had used his method! You saw it first here in Cumbria! He kindly let us taste one. A great gastronomical time in the Wood which has dramatic landscapes and views which you enjoy throughout your meal .

Room Tip: Sorry we didn't stay but just visited to eat lunch .

Visited The Cottage in the Woods last night for dinner. From arrival to leaving the experience was amazing. I proposed to my girlfriend in the garden with the stunning view in the background.
We had the taster menu and it was out of this world. The preparation and presentation of the food was fantastic. The waiting on staff knew the menu and gave a full description of each course. The hosts were really warm and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. The views from our table in the conservatory was absolutely stunning and added to the whole experience. I would definitely recommend going there for a romantic dinner.
