    “This is a lovely holiday cottage and has everything you could need for a comfortable stay.”

    The fluffy towels were well appreciated and the welcome pack was a lovely surprise. While we chose to eat out for the duration of our stay we could easily have cooked as every utensil and appliance you may need were provided. The provision of WiFi was really welcome as there is no mobile reception in Wasdale, we weren't quite ready for a total digital detox. This cottage is part of a working farm and it was certainly unusual to glance through the bathroom window and see a sheep watching you ...

    The fluffy towels were well appreciated and the welcome pack was a lovely surprise. While we chose to eat out for the duration of our stay we could easily have cooked as every utensil and appliance you may need were provided. The provision of WiFi was really welcome as there is no mobile reception in Wasdale, we weren't quite ready for a total digital detox. This cottage is part of a working farm and it was certainly unusual to glance through the bathroom window and see a sheep watching you. The owners are on site and were there to welcome us on the first night and I did get the impression when they said "ask if you need anything", they really meant it. The location of the cottage is perfect for Wast Water and lake activities and of course the omnipresent Scafell is on the door step ready to climb, alongside plenty of other challenging walks. We did find some moderate walks on the bookshelf in the holiday cottage which as a nice touch - we left another walk on the shelf for the next lot of visitors to consider. While we were blessed with excellent weather I believe this is unusual and it would be very pleasant to curl up in front of the log burner on a rainy day. As a family with 3 older children it is difficult to find a holiday to suit everyone and I am happy to say this cottage suited us all.

About the location

NETHER WASDALE

Gosforth 3.9 miles; Santon Bridge 2.3 miles

Nether Wasdale is a small village situated to the west of Wastwater, the deepest lake in Great Britain. The village is well-served with two pubs, one with its own brewery, a farm shop and café selling local produce and ice cream. This area is the birthplace of climbing and is a superb base for climbing, hiking and all outdoor pursuits. Unlike many lakes, motorised boats are forbidden on Wastwater though canoeing and kayaking are perfect for these unspoilt and tranquil waters which add to the peace and serenity of this stunning part of the Lake District National Park. Wastwater is sided by The Screes and at the head of the lake the fells of Great Gable and Scafell Pike can be reached, popular with hikers and climbers alike. The view from the summit of Great Gable is said to be the finest view in Britain. At Wasdale Head is the church of St. Olaf, one of the smallest churches in England, dating back to 1550 and its beams are said to have come from Viking long boats. Close by are the villages of Santon Bridge and Gosforth.
