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...

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...

You will first get a glimpse from the house on the road to Buttermere and like we did, you will think that whoever lives there is so lucky to be surrounded by such beauty and wake up everyday on this view... Then you'll be stunned to realise this is actually where you're about to stay and you will lucky as...

Following problems with health, we wanted some peace and quiet yet some scenic views. We were not disappointed in either case. So how can I best describe Wood House and our short stay? The stay itself was all that we hoped for. Mike McKenzie was a wonderful host, always there, being as helpful as he can, but never interfering or...
