The Cottage in the Wood Country Hotel and Restaurant is a former 17th century coaching inn situated in the heart of the Whinlatter forest near Keswick, in one of the most beautiful and dramatic areas of the Lake District national park. This area of the Lake District National Park inspired the famous author and fell walker, A.W. Wainwright, to write ‘that the North Western fells are the most delectable of them all’. The Hotel provides a tranquil location, yet is only ten minutes' drive from the bustling market town of Keswick. We are ideally situated between the lakes of Bassenthwaite, Derwentwater, Buttermere and Crummock Water. The Cottage in the Wood is full of warmth, charm and character. There is a cosy lounge and a small bar and all the rooms reflect a cottage style ambience within the decor and furniture. Regrettably the hotel is unable to accommodate children under 10 years of age.
