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.
