Peaceful hotel in the LakesPosted Jul 3, 2012 on Hotels.com
Judith was a kind and friendly hostess who greeted us with tea and lemon drizzle cake. There were several little touches not seen in other hotels. The location was beautiful - we loved the peace and quiet !

The Woodlands Country House - Lake DistrictPosted Apr 13, 2012 on Hotels.com
This was a charming place to spend the Easter weekend. The staff were most attentive and friendly. The village was quiet and peaceful and very convenient for reaching other places of interest in the Lake District.

Lovely...but some small disadvantagesPosted Sep 1, 2011
For anyone wanting to 'get away from it all' this is ideal.. The beds were extremely comfortable, the hotel (or in truth, large guest house) was spotless and the lady who runs the hotel couldn't have been more helpful or pleasant. However,, while the location is extremely quiet, a little background music in the dining room would have made breakfast less self-conscious! Such is the perfect silence, that it was difficult to put a knife down, or talk, wihout disturbing the peace! The location is delightful and the view, wonderful. However, it's not 'near' anywhere in particular and for walkers, would be perfect - though sightseers and visitors to the lakes couldn't possibly manage without a car, or a willingness to drive. There are no nearby restaurants - just a pub that opens when it feels like it. Which brings me to my only real criticism. We booked dinner on the first night. It was £24 a head. Dinner is taken in the breakfast room. There are candles on the tables. But it's not a restaurant. It doesn't have the ambience of a restaurant. Our starters were okay. The main course was delicious. My home made ice-cream for pud was lovely. At £15 a head it would have been spot on. The ambience of the house is warm and welcoming. But the cost of dinner flew in the face of all other impressions. I hadn't been reluctant to book at this pricve. The menu sounded fabulous and entirely home made. The result failed to live up to it. But don't let this put you off. It's a magical place.
