COTTAGE GARDEN.
Woodside is dog friendly with wood and tiled floors on the ground floor.

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.

And best of all you can walk to it from Woodside!

Second Perfect Break


By Alan L on 25-Feb-2018

This was our second visit and once again we were all very pleased to enjoy the atmosphere this great cottage has to offer. We had typical Lake District weather for February that was cold and frosty with some snow. We all enjoyed the warmth and comfort of the log burner that kept us all as warm as toast as we planned our days out in the fells. There are so many places to visit from the cottage and it is so nice to come back to a real authentic piece of Cumbria that feels like home. We hope to return again to make some more great memories.

Relaxing Retreat


By Anon on 01-Oct-2016

This is the perfect cottage to relax and unwind. It has a homely atmosphere with gorgeous fabrics and attention to detail. The owners have recently invested in custom made sofas which were so comfy for snuggling up on after a long walk. The bathrooms were hotel quality and the kitchen superbly equipped. Bedrooms were so lovely and relaxing with comfy beds,pillows and Egyptian cotton bedding. Log stove and electric heating made for a very cosy cottage. Great walks from the door step so we only used our car once during our stay. We walked to the Motor Museum which is dog friendly and there are plenty of information leaflets in the cottage to help you find out what there is to see and do in the area. The owners are very friendly and approachable and let's not forget the ladies that clean the cottage as it was spotless and well presented. Stop dithering and book this cottage, if you don't somebody else will!

Woodside Cottage is lovely Woodside Cottage , Low Stott Park, Lakeside , Cumbria, La12 8AX, United Kingdom


By Audrey C. Said. on 23-Jul-2016

The Cottage is very comfortable and well maintained and equipped with every thing you need for a holiday, we had our 2 dogs with us and there is adequate room for a dog crate in the Front Hallway - they thoroughly enjoyed the garden, the owners were very attentive and provided detailed instructions for everything in the cottage and the surrounding visitor attractions. I would recommend this cottage, however it is a walk away from the local village and you should bring supplies with you as there are no local shops nearby.

Carol & Paul December 2015


By Carol C. Said.. on 04-Jan-2016

Our first wedding anniversary - so a quiet romantic weekend in the lakes was how we decided to help celebrate the occasion. The cottage of course was key to a lovely weekend , and it was perfect , offering all the amenities we wanted. Very comfortable, clean , cosy and in a great location as a base to walk or drive from. When we look for a cottage , we want it to feel home from home , and this did. The wood burner in particular gave it that homely feel. The weekend went fine , despite the worst flooding for years across Cumbria. So very sad for local inhabitants, but it didn't spoil our stay , and we remained pleased with our choice. Yes we will be back her again sometime.

Walks and Waggy Tails!


By Colin B. on 20-Jul-2015


This was our first trip to the lake district; the important factors that clinched Woodside cottage for me were i) I felt comfortable making the booking as Woodside is "dog-friendly" ii) the promise of clean, comfortable accomodation and iii) the location. Woodside cottage exceeded my expectations on all counts.

My very fluffy dogs enjoyed the cool stone floor of the kitchen (yes, we had some hot days) and all downstairs flooring is stone/wood so no worries about grubby paw marks. Not that I would let that happen - I found the outside tap useful to give both dogs and walking gear/boots a wash down.

The accomodation was very comfortable and spotlessly clean - and we kept it that way as we would at home. Our stay coincided with Wimbledon - so we were relieved to find a decent flatscreen TV with SKY! The beds are exceedingly comfortable and most welcome after a day's hike.

Now, my wife is a little precious (I don't think she'll see this review....) when it comes to cooking (and she is a SUPERB cook) - and as far as packing for holiday, I'm not in the least surprised to find three or four of her favourite saucepans and a myriad of utensils. SO, it is a REAL compliment to Alison and Brian that our pans etc were entirely redundant as the Woodside kitchen was so well equipped for folk who really cook!

Location: So much to do and so little time! Local woods, meadows, High Dam (superb), Lakeside cruises - take the bigger boat and go to AMBLESIDE. NB: the seats in the saloon fold up to make space for dogs. Also enjoyed beautiful Tarn Hows - this is quite accessible and the NT are there at the car park with electric 4 wheelers. There are a number of walks that take you "off-piste" at Tarn Hows - well worth a day's exploring.

Oh, BTW - make sure you visit Stott Bobbin Mill! It's on the doorstep :-)

Brian and Alison provide a great, supportive and friendly service for your stay. Most helpful.

I have no hesitation recommending Woodside
