Resting deep within the magnificent Lake District National Park, in the idyllic village of Thornthwaite, you will find the picturesque cottage of Woodside with it's pretty garden. Boasting stupendous views and lovely decor, this cosy countryside cottage offers a wonderful setting for a rural retreat for a family of four. Place a log onto the traditional woodburning stove that rests peacefully within the striking inglenook fireplace, as you settle down on the stylish neutral sofa with a warm cup of tea and scan the channels on the flat-screen TV for your favourite shows. Spend the afternoon in the attractive farmhouse kitchen, baking some tasty treats with the children for all to delight in as you gather at the rustic wood dining table. While away the hour as you indulge in some peace and quiet with a relaxing soak in the bath, following an action-packed day of exploring the Cumbrian countryside; The ground floor bathroom also plays host to a handy shower resting over the tub, meaning guests can also delight in a brisk rinse to kick-start their day. Wander across to the spacious double bedroom and admire the beautiful decor of the serene blue walls and the eye-catching feature fireplace, as you unpack your belongings into the charming chest of drawers making yourself feel right at home. On the ground floor there is also a lovely twin bedroom with classic oak beds and views of the nearby mountains from the window. Dust off your bikes and head out on a scenic cycle through the nearby Whinlatter Forest Park.

About the location


Keswick 3 miles.

Between the magnificent northern lakes of Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite, lies the village of Braithwaite. Still retaining much of its traditional appeal, the Coledale Beck runs through the village with whitewashed Lakeland cottages, two village shops and two real ale Inns each brimming with character! Between Braithwaite and Buttermere is the beautiful Newlands Valley, while picturesque Bassenthwaite Lake is well worth a visit. From a gentle countryside ramble to a challenging hike up Skiddaw, there really is something for everyone. Visit Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the lake with an open-air theatre, or take a trip around the lake. Lake District Wildlife Park, Dodd Wood, Derwentwater, and Keswick with its wide range of attractions, are also within easy reach.
