Wood Hall is situated in an amazing position overlooking the mountains of the Western Lake District, two miles from Cockermouth and just 20 minutes drive from the beautiful town of Keswick. Cockermouth is a pretty market town with a wide tree-lined and flower-decked main street, individual shops and a large supermarket. There is an interesting museum, two art galleries, and a sports centre with climbing wall and indoor swimming pool. Cockermouth has a wide range of excellent restaurants, a list of our favourites is included in the welcome pack.
The traditional pastimes of the Lake District are easily accessible at this quieter end of the National Park. Wood Hall is a great place for walkers to stay, with so many of the Western Wainwright fells within 15 minutes drive.
There are three golf courses within ten miles, including Silloth, which is consistently voted as one of the top 10 links courses in the country; Silloth on Solway Golf Club. There is also some of the best fishing in England on the river Derwent, which is a short walk from the end of Wood Hall Gardens.
