  • “Great time at the woodland cottages”
    We stayed at the cottage for a 40th birthday party and had a great time, the cottage is fully equipped with everything you need. Jo was a very helpful and when we were little too noisy was polite in asking us to quieten down. Place is overall perfect for a weekend relaxing. We did a lovely walk around the fields nearby and it is a 20 min walk into the town. They have refurbished thebpakces excellently and we would consider going back...

Woodland Cottages

A group of seven cottages refurbished to a high standard and located just a mile away from the lakeside town of Bowness-on-Windermere. Six acres of stunning woodland surround these delightful cottages, creating a little hideaway from the outside world, yet with easy access to the attractions and sights of the Lake District National Park. There are six five bedroom cottages and one four bedroom all offering flexible bedroom arrangements with some of the properties featuring zip/link beds. All the cottages have been thoughtfully refurbished with quality and comfort in mind. Open plan living areas create social hubs for spending time with your loved ones and the woodburning stoves create a homely atmosphere at all times of the year. Not only that but all Woodland Cottages come with a fantastic hot tub allowing you to soak up your surroundings in the most relaxing way! Just a short stroll down the road is the lakeside town of Bowness complete with a variety of bars, restaurants and quaint shops. Take a cruise along Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake and admire the spectacular backdrop of the surrounding mountains. Golfers are in for a treat as the challenging Windermere Golf Club is next door to these cottages where the views are a perfect tonic for the odd wayward shot! The Lake District is of course renowned for walking and hiking and Woodland Cottages is ideally placed for exploring Brant Fell, Scafell Pike and the Crinkle Crags. There are routes to suit all abilities and views that will linger long in the memory. Whether you are up for an adventure or a relaxing getaway, Woodland Cottages is the perfect choice at any time of the year.
