An outstanding meal in a beautiful setting, The service was superb with attentive and caring quality. The food was top class and the wine to match was perfect. I have eaten duck in many places but this was sublime, the confit leg, omg.
If you like fine food of a fine dining style then this is just a must.

Just returned from a 2 night stay at The Cottage in the Woods and I would recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation in this area! From the minute we arrived we were made to feel so welcome and at home. The views from the conservatory during the three course breakfast meal are breathtaking and the food was delicious! We stayed in Cedar Wood which is one of the cottage rooms and it was just the right size for two of us and the bed was very comfy! The staff are so lovely and accommodating and we would definitely stay here again when we return to the area! Thank you to all the staff at The Cottage in the Wood for such a lovely stay.

Back for our third visit. The food is still excellent - possibly even better. And the welcome is still great. We were due to stay three nights and try Helvellyn and Skiddaw but a foot injury meant that we had to reduce to one night with no hill walking. The Cottage was able to accommodate this and kindly brought us into the main house - thank you Cath.

It's not just the dinner that is great but also the breakfast - absolutely lovely, especially the special. We enjoyed Liam's wine choices and Monica is a great addition to the staff.

The cottage remains a great 'restaurant with rooms' and we look forward to coming back to attempt those hills again!

Room Tip: We were in the house - very nice room. The bathrooms aren't that big. Comfortable rooms but g...

We stayed here in the Garden room.Well thought out space and large comfy bed.
We thought our evening meal was one of the best we have had in a long time. Staff and owner were friendly and efficient.
Enjoyed watching the wildlife from our bedroom window

Room Tip: Garden room is outside main building but very private.

The cottage in the woods is a really beautiful place to stay. The scenery is simply stunning! Rooms are pleasant, comfortable and spotless. We had the taster menu in the restaurant with wine suggestions and cheese platter. The food was stunning! Staff were really attentive and knowledgable about the menu selections. Restaurant manager Monica was excellent, Cathy the owner is simply a first class hostess and top marks to the Chef! It would be a privilege to come here again and stay and I really hope we do!
