Our stay in Wood House Cottage was perfect. Such a lovely and comfortable place to stay and really well facilitated. Tony was brilliantly helpful and totally unflappable given how much he was juggling. We made use of the canoes to hire from Tony and went out on Crummock Water which was brilliant - we thoroughly enjoyed it and again Tony...

Wood House is one of best B&Bs we have ever stayed in. The very attentive and helpful hosts, quality of room, beautiful lakeside setting and attention to detail could not have been better. We will be back as soon as we can and will recommend it to all our family and friends.

We wanted to celebrate an important anniversary and birthday. We chose this hotel from what was on the website and the reviews. The booking was confirmed and the deposit paid on 25th April 2016 for a booking for the 8th and 9th July. Two emails were sent to clarify queries we had. They were not acknowledged or answered. A few...

I am the son of the previous owner and took over the business in October 2016. One of the reasons I now manage Wood House is that my dad is in his 80th year and has increasingly struggled with various aspects of running the business. He and my mum made a great job of establishing a well regarded guest house...

My sister and I have been staying Wood House for a few days at a time for several years now and we just love it. Beautifully appointed and Judys ' cooking would compete with Master Chef any day. Glorious views over Crummock Water; red squirrels to watch when eating breakfast and perfect tranquillity - what more could one ask for.

Great B&B just a few minutes walk from the centre of Buttermere. Room had a great view and the hosts were excellent with the food and local tips. Breakfast was superb and sourced from high quality local produce.

Almost don't to reveal the beauty of this amazing place. My friend and I rented this gorgeous stone cottage by the lake and surrounded by the stunning walking tracks of the Lake District around Lake Buttermere and Crummock Water. The windows look straight out at Red Pike peak. We chose the full board option and breakfast and dinner were brought...

Wood House is all what the Lake District is about or should be about. Stunning landscape all around which ever way you look, incredible night sky with no light pollution, red squirrels running freely in the garden, jay, woodpecker, tree creepers all just there to see. And it is just so quiet, idyllic! Then we have the accommodation, such a...

I visited here with my mum in April. We have stayed in many different areas of the Lake District and this by far was our favourite. The views from our bedroom window at the B&B over Crummock Water were amazing. The rooms were beautiful and clean and Mike and Judy are just so welcoming and lovely. The breakfast was beautiful...

A beautiful b&b in the most amazing setting. Spectacular views over the lake. First class breakfast using top quality local ingredients. Owners are very friendly and accommodating. Can recommend the evening meal which is provided a couple of times a week at an extra cost. No shower or TV but didn't find that a problem at all. Look forward to...
