About this location

The Lake District

The location of Woodside is fabulous, with Lake Windermere a few minutes walk away. You can walk down to the lake on a Summer's evening and sit and enjoy the sun setting over the most spectacular view in England....breath taking ....or sit in warm cosy comfort on a Winter's afternoon in Oscar's cafe and watch the constantly changing scene on the lake...magical.

Woodside is in the heart of the most picturesque area of Britain. The scenery is breathtaking and sporting activities abound. The area is famous for quaint sleepy villages where time has stood still, quality pubs and restaurants, National Trust properties of major historical importance and lakes that stretch for miles.

Woodside is in a peaceful,tranquil spot where you can get away from it all and enjoy fresh mountain air with fabulous walks right from the front door.

Newby Bridge

Woodside is in the very heart of the lakes and ideal for visiting all the attractions the lake District has to offer, Hawkshead, Cartmel, Bowness, Coniston and Windermere are all only minutes away in the car.

Woodside itself,was part of the historic Low Stott Park Bobbin Mill now owned by English Heritage.You can take the guided tour of the mill, just across the road.

Nearby are four of the TOP TEN LAKE DISTRICT VISITOR ATTRACTIONS all of which can be reached on FOOT..... you can forget the car!!! They are at Lakeside Village and there you can find the Aquarium of the Lakes,the Lakeside steam railway, the lake Windermere cruise ships and the ferry to Fell Foot (NT) Also at Lkaeside is the Lakeside Hotel :-4 star restaurant/ bar/Spa treatments,a bike hire centre, gift shop and cafe. At Fell Foot(accessible by ferry from Lakeside) are watersports on the lake, rowing boat/canoe hire etc and a public boat launch. You can have a whole week sight seeing and walking in this beautiful area without using the car!!!!

Walks abound from the front door with the spectacular High Dam walk just half a mile away ranked by The Independent in the top ten Summer walks in the country! Also nearby is the ancient woodland of Great Knott Wood.

Grizedale with is stunning scenery , mountain biking, Go Ape and walks is 10 mins away in the car.

Woodside is right in the heart of Beatrix Potter country,Hill Top is minutes away .

Fabulous restaurants are within walking distance or a short drive. The Swan Inn, for an excellent meal is 1 mile away and a scenic drive up the western shores to Esthwaite Water(for fishing) takes you on to Hawkshead with its traditional pubs, restaurants and quality shops.

HORSE riding at Bigland Equestrian Centre is a few minutes drive away. This is one of the biggest and best in the lake district and can offer rides from novice to experienced over a variety of terrain.

"Woodside Cottage"

The accommodation was faultless, spacious bedrooms, excellent kitchen and dining area with modern appliances, lounge area with up to date entertainment bathroom and en-suite facilities spotless.

Fabulous cottage steeped in history with modern day luxuries. Set in a tranquil area yet close enough to the hustle of Bowness & Windermere if you need a break from it all I recommend you try this cottage.
