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.

Maybe as its coming to the end of the season but we felt the cottage was looking a little tired. That said we had a really relaxing week in the cottage, enjoyed the beautiful view across the fields and the easy fifteen minute walk into Hawkshead.
