Definitely stay again

We had a lovely Christmas break here. The cottage was beautiful. It is situated just a short walk from the Lakeside ferry port but also a short drive from local amenities. We would definitely stay here again.

Responsive hosts

The hosts (both Brian and Alison) were really responsive and helpful. The instructions of how to get to the lodge was very clear. The lodge was very clean. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen and amenities were great.

Lovely Cottage

Lovely cottage and surroundings as well as helpful hosts. We enjoyed the free spa and had a lovely walk around High Dam.

We come to Woodside Cottage regularly & always love it!!

Great Location

Beautiful cottage in a great location for all the local attractions.
Cottage has every comfort you could need, everything has been thought of. Would definitely visit again.

A weeks stay at Woodside

We stayed for a week at Woodside in July 2021. Really lovely cottage which was pristine when we arrived, the cottage was really comfortable and contained lots of kitchen utensils and crockery. The bedrooms were all a good size and very comfortable. Bathrooms were refurbished and very nice. Gardens were lovely. Great local walks through the forest and to the Dam. It was a great base to travel and see the Lake District and return to the tranquility of the cottage. The local hotels serve lovely food and all are dog friendly.

Just stayed in woodside cottage and we enjoyed it so much we have re-booked! The cottage is beautiful, well kept, clean and everything you would need for a home from home trip. We arrived with milk in the fridge and some welcome gifts which were much appreciated. The location of Woodside is great, it’s lovely and quiet but you can easily access all the other parts of the lake district. Brian and Alison are great and kept in touch to make we were OK, had everything we needed and provided us with some wonderful local works that the whole family enjoyed especially our 3 dog’s who also loved their holiday and can’t wait to come back.


High Dam

Cosy but spacious cottage

Christmas wreath

Woodside is a lovely, warm and deceptively spacious cottage. Six of us spent Christmas here and we found the cottage to be perfect for our needs. Nicely decorated for the festivities and no trouble cooking Christmas dinner in the well equipped kitchen. Brian and Alison are very thoughtful hosts and we would definitely recommend a stay at Woodside.

Cozy and comfortable

Tern on Windermere

The welcome pack was a nice introduction to a cozy comfortable cottage on the quiet side of the lake. A good selection of games for the family to play round a warm log fire.

Beautiful homely cottage

The cottage is a lovely place, with more than enough room for six people and everything you need inside. It’s very cosy and homely. Check in and out is extremely straightforward, and Brian and Alison contacted to ensure everything was going smoothly (it was). They also provided plenty of information on things to do and places nearby, which is a very nice touch. We enjoyed a lovely stay in the Lake District and this place made it all the more comfortable. Thanks 🙂


Low Stott park Bobbin Mill

Our 2 weeks at Woodside Cottage were quite wonderful. The cottage was great & provided everything we needed in comfort. There is so much you can do without even getting in the car & more a short drive away.

Great cosy little cottage, good for families.

Great cosy little cottage, good for families, lots of little touches like a toy box and children’s books in one of the bedrooms, board games, nice cosy living room. Very practical for a family stay in Cumbria with it’s washing machine and drying machine (we got very wet when cycling around Lake Windermere with the kids, though it was great fun we got caught in the rain). Kitchen in excellent working order. Very helpful hosts.

Drinking wine by the fire

Woodside cottage

A very cosy and warm cottage to spend a lovely few days away in a fantastic location. We were a bunch of friends that love to get together to cook and drink wine by a fire and this cottage was just perfect. There are some great pubs nearby and some fantastic walks with breathtaking views. Alison is a great host and very quick at getting back you. I would highly recommend Woodside cottage.

Lovely fire in lovely surroundings

We had a great family weekend in this lovely cottage. Weather was freezing and wet but we were warm in the cottage with a lovely fire in lovely surroundings. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who wants a nice home from home holiday in the Lakes

Outstanding service

Outstanding service. Fantastic summer break we have had as a family. From home to home and even better. Would love to go back soon. Xx

70th birthday celebration

We stayed here for my dads 70th birthday recently! We had a lovely time. Fantastic cottage. We had 5 adults, a baby and a dog and there was plenty of space and bathroom facilities. Lovely, well equipped kitchen and cosy living room. The area is also perfect for walking. Alison and Brian communicated well and gave us lots of information about the area. Would recommend.

Would definitely stay there again.
