Located 1,000ft up in the heart of Whinlatter Forest, England's only mountain forest, The Cottage in the Wood is a unique Michelin star restaurant with rooms. It's also ideally situated near the bustling market town of Keswick and close to the lakes of Bassenthwaite, Derwentwater, Buttermere, Crummock Water and Loweswater.

The Cottage in the Wood is a 17th century boutique-style destination in the most stunning natural setting. 'The Cottage' provides a tranquil and relaxing ambience and is the perfect base for exploring the magic of the Lakes whilst enjoying creative and original food. The area provides a rich larder, Herdwick Hogget from the surrounding fells, freshly landed fish and shellfish from Whitehaven harbour, and a host of wild foods.
