Woodys Nook is a lovely cottage which offers all you could need for a week in the Lakes. It is a lovely walk into Hawkshead which has all you need and the owners who love upstairs made you feel very welcome. The dogs loved the garden and settled straight away which was great. Recommended and would certainly use again if we visited the Lakes.

Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
