Why Brian Smith chose Colton
We are an owner run and managed cottage who take a real pride in providing a quality service and cottage. Our caretaker does a superb job in getting Woodside ready for our visitors and our location is fabulous for exploring the Lakes. Woodside is so near High Dam and lake Windermere, we can stroll there on a Summer's evening and take the view in. So relaxing, or sit in cosy comfort in Oscar's cafe at Lakeside and watch the constantly unfolding scene on the Lake , magical. Our aim is to make your stay as luxurious and comfortable as possible. In equipping our cottages we have chosen high quality furnishings and fixtures and we have tried to provide everything you will need to have a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Each room at our cottage has been meticulously designed with a unique colour scheme and furnishings. We have just three bedrooms at Woodside , which means we can pay attention to every detail. Many guests say we have thought of everything, I hope you would agree. We are a small business so it’s easy for us to combine a personal touch with high standards . Every inch of our rooms were designed and crafted by us using quality, hand-selected furnishings and colour coordinated schemes. We wanted our accommodation to ooze warmth and comfort to ensure you have a memorable stay. All rooms have quality carefully selected beds for a good night’s sleep and topped with layers of quality linen to sink into at the end of the day. You’ll also be treated to fluffy towels at Woodside . You can unwind with free wifi, or simply sit at the table by the window with a tea, coffee or wine and play games. What could be better? Oh, and did I mention the gardens? You’ll be surprised at what wanders or swoops across them. And of course I must mention the peace and quiet. Woodside is in peaceful location with plenty of bird song to enjoy! Deer, pheasant and wild ducks are often seen at the cottage!
What makes this Cottage unique
We have owned Woodside for several years. We chose it because of its very special location and it wonderful character. You can come to Woodside and walk some of the most peaceful walks right from the front door or walk down to Lakeside and sit by the Lake. It is a very special and much loved cottage

Had a fantastic time brilliant location, owners were brilliant nothing too much trouble. Would highly recommend amazing
Our 2 weeks at Woodside Cottage were quite wonderful. The cottage was great & provided everything we needed in comfort. There is so much you can do without even getting in the car & more a short drive away.
Hi Jennie so pleased you found Woodside to be a great location. We do hope you return to Woodside in the future.
Beautiful homely cottage
The cottage is a lovely place, with more than enough room for six people and everything you need inside. It's very cosy and homely. Check in and out is extremely straightforward, and Brian and Alison contacted to ensure everything was going smoothly (it was). They also provided plenty of information on things to do and places nearby, which is a very nice touch. We enjoyed a lovely stay in the Lake District and this place made it all the more comfortable. Thanks :)
Cozy and comfortable
The welcome pack was a nice introduction to a cozy comfortable cottage on the quiet side of the lake.
A good selection of games for the family to play round a warm log fire.

Cosy but spacious cottage in lovely location
Woodside is a lovely, warm and deceptively spacious cottage. Six of us spent Christmas here and we found the cottage to be perfect for our needs. Nicely decorated for the festivities and no trouble cooking Christmas dinner in the well equipped kitchen. Brian and Alison are very thoughtful hosts and we would definitely recommend a stay at Woodside.
Many thanks for your lovely review. We are so pleased you had a great Christmas at Woodside and enjoyed the walk up to High Dam. We do hope you will return in the future.
