Wood Hall is a luxury, pet-friendly property with a truly impressive setting on a south facing hillside with sensational panoramic views of Skiddaw, Grassmoor and the Lorton and Buttermere valleys.
Wood Hall sleeps eighteen people in comfort and is ideal for friends and family to get together in this quiet corner of the National Park. Situated at the end of a mile long private drive and with its own six acre private landscaped gardens, Wood Hall allows you and your guests to truly relax and enjoy the tranquility of your surroundings.
If you would like to treat yourself to a professionally prepared meal then a list of highly recommended local cooks can be provided, offering services ranging from doing all the food shopping to making three course meals and all the tidying up afterwards. We can also recommend a local babysitter if you would like an evening out.
The tempting views of Crummock, Buttermere and Loweswater are only a short drive away and these western fells are often much quieter than the busy central lakes. The market town of Cockermouth is a five minute drive away offering a supermarket and many interesting independent shops.

The Lake District
With accessible mountains, beautiful lakes and tarns, woodlands and moorlands, the Lake District is a haven, not only for outdoor enthusiasts, but for anyone who loves peace and beauty.
The changing seasons bring with them different highlights – Spring is a time of new life with baby lambs, Wordsworth's daffodils, and walks through bluebell woods. Summer brings it's own magic, either lazing by a lake or enjoying the view from the high mountain peaks. Beautiful Autumn colours hopefully bring along an Indian Summer and wild winter on the frosty fells, makes the most of an open fire and a seasonal glass of mulled wine.
The beautiful lakes with dramatic fells rising from there shores are just part of a great experience of excellent local food and fantastic activities. A holiday here can live long in the memory and get you coming back for more.
Wood Hall is the perfect starting place to explore the Lake District, in particular the Northern Fells and lakes. The property is within easy reach of the Lorton valley, leading on to the Buttermere valley. With the lakes of Buttermere, Crummock Water and Loweswater, this is one of the most picturesque valleys in the Lake District. Haystacks (Wainwright's favourite Lakeland fell) is at the top of the valley.
The market town of Cockermouth (home of Wordsworth) is only a short 10 minute drive and has a large variety of restaurants, cafe's and bars. The high street has several independent shops and boutiques and the Jennings Brewery also hails from here, it's well worth a visit and doing the tour if not just for the chance to sample some of the fine ales they produce at the end of it.
It's a 30 minute drive from the property into Keswick, a busy market town (market day is Thursday and Saturday) with lots going on. Here you can go boating on the lake, hire bikes, take a trip to the Puzzling Place or the Pencil Museum (both good wet weather activities for kids and adults alike). Keswick also boasts an indoor swimming pool with wave machine, the renowned Theatre by the Lake and a cinema (which also shows World Cinema films on a Sunday afternoon throughout winter).
The visitor centre at Whinlatter is close by and has café, bike hire and high ropes course (Go Ape), as well as a live video camera in the Osprey nest (May-August). There is a recently opened mountain bike trail (said to be one of the best and longest forest trails in England).
There is plenty for everyone!
