Oh...wow..!! A beautiful...beautiful treat from my very special hubby!! He'd heard excellent reviews.. And they were certainly not wrong,, !! Thank you for an excellent meal, and knowing my slight diet request! (Mmmm..being lactose tolerance usually means - skip 3rd course! But oh..no Chef had it all in control!! Thank you for my own special 'sweet' xx) The staff were... More

We love this little hideaway it ticks all the boxes for a wonderful stay. The rooms are immaculate and the classic rooms are very comfy, especially the bed. Kath is a very welcoming host and her staff are lovely. We had a great conversation with the young lady who looked after us for dinner on Saturday 12th April. The food... More

We stayed at The Cottage in the Wood on our wedding night and returned to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. A very different place now, a restaurant with rooms rather than the B & B we stayed in before, but it has changed for the better. A very comfortable, stylishly decorated place to stay. Our room was immaculate and there... More

Just home from three lovely nights staying at The Cottage in the Woods. We found the staff so friendly and kind. We loved the complimentary tea & gorgeous cake on arrival. We had one of the basic rooms which suited our needs. It's also a fantastic location for activities in the forest. The thing that steals the show here is... More

On a recent visit to the lakes we decided to visit the cottage for a meal after reading all the great reviews. We did not book a table in advance, however, when we arrived the person attending to us was unsure if she could squeeze us in. After speaking to the chef they allowed us to be seated and much...

Tasting Menu - Ok…so my thoughts on Cottage in the Wood. As far as romantics go and couples wanting to simply escape from it all then it really doesn`t come any better than this. It really is a little den hidden away in the forests….Ssshhhh no one will ever know you`re there and you can simply vanish from everyday life.... More

Wonderful hosts & excellent staff, most pleasant mannered ever. Lovely room stayed in 'Ash' bed to die for, no expense spared on decor. Excellent meal by a young up & coming chef. Kath is simply the most lovely natured lady who pays attention to all around her, thank you for making our stay so pleasant.

We stayed here in December and decided to take a rest one afternoon by the log fire in the lounge. However when we got there the fire was not lit. When we went up to our rooms we found the heating was turned off. It seems the heating is only switched on in the evenings and is off in the... More

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very relaxed and welcome. We had coffee and brownies after putting our luggage in our room. We stayed in treetops, which we found to be 'like a secret room' in the attic. Although small it was beautiful and the skylights were amazing to star gaze through. The taster meal was... More
