The property

Braithwaite 1.5 miles.

Hidden deep within the luscious green Cumbrian Countryside, in the quintessential village of Thornthwaite, you will find the picture-perfect cottage of Woodside.

Ideally situated within the outstanding Lake District National Park, this delightful abode offers the perfect setting for a couple or a family of four seeking an action-packed adventure in the great outdoors.

After an exhilarating morning stroll along the clear waters of Braithwaite Lake, return to the warmth of this cottage, leaving your mud-splattered wellies to dry out in the porch.

Spend your evenings relaxing in front of the flat-screen TV, as you snuggle close to your loved ones and keep nice and toasty from the heat of the attractive woodburning stove.

Prepare a mouth-watering meal in the classic well equipped farmhouse kitchen, where you can show off your culinary skills.

Serve up at the dining table and delight in a delicious family feast, as you crack open a bottle of fizz and toast to spending quality time with your loved ones on a memorable holiday to Cumbria.

Retreat to the lovely double bedroom styled with calming blue hues, and admire the striking black feature fireplace as you unpack your belongings into the traditional chest of drawers, allowing yourself to feel right at home.

On the ground-floor discover a pretty twin bedroom, housing two charming oak beds and boasting views of the mountains, together making this the perfect space to retire to at the end of an action-packed day.

Guests can choose to start their day with a refreshing rinse under the shower or instead opt for a more relaxing soak in the tub, both located in the airy ground-floor bathroom.

Kick-start your exciting expedition with a day at the thrilling adventure centre of Go Ape Whinlatter, where you can swing from treetops or explore the breath-taking forest on a fun-filled segway tour.

Visit the grand family estate of Mirehouse & Gardens, or head into the town of Keswick for a scenic picnic in the well-kept landscapes of Hope Park.

Wander the galleries of Keswick Museum as you soak up the local history, before heading off to the enchanting ruins of the magnificent Castlerigg Stone Circle.

Hop on your bikes and head out for a cycle through Whinlatter Forest Park or challenge yourself to a hike up Skiddaw, well-worth your efforts for the beautiful vistas once you reach the peak.

Live unforgettable moments with your nearest and dearest on a holiday to Woodside.

About the location


Keswick 3 miles.

Between the magnificent northern lakes of Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite, lies the village of Braithwaite. Still retaining much of its traditional appeal, the Coledale Beck runs through the village with whitewashed Lakeland cottages, two village shops and two real ale Inns each brimming with character! Between Braithwaite and Buttermere is the beautiful Newlands Valley, while picturesque Bassenthwaite Lake is well worth a visit. From a gentle countryside ramble to a challenging hike up Skiddaw, there really is something for everyone. Visit Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the lake with an open-air theatre, or take a trip around the lake. Lake District Wildlife Park, Dodd Wood, Derwentwater, and Keswick with its wide range of attractions, are also within easy reach.
