Location, Location, Location..

 The  location is fabulous, being in the heart of the National Park and by Lake Windermere, with Lakeside and Newby Bridge a stone’s throw away. Such a central lakes location will enable you to see so much of the lake District and we have the fabulous High Dam to walk to.

4 of the TOP 10 Lake District Attractions can be walked to from Woodside:  The Haverthwaite to Lakeside Steam Railway, The Lake Windermere Cruisers, The Aquarium of the Lakes and the ferry for Fell Foot Park.

If peace,  serenity and a superb walk with the dog is what you seek, then High Dam is ideal. It must be one of the most peaceful lakes in the whole of the Lake District, and was much favoured by Alfred Wainwright. He thought it, “far superior to Tarn Hows.”  High praise indeed. 

High Dam

And best of all, you can walk to High Dam from Woodside’s front door!
