    “Nice comfortable & well appointed cottage with everything needed for a week away.”

    Very cosy with the fire and central heating. As expected in November weather was mixed (including Storm Debi) so we made good use of the excellent external drying room. A great location for accessing both the coast or hills of the Western Lakes. Only downside was the lack of wi-fi all week (outside of the owners control we presume and down to the provider). Unfortunately this made pre-walk planning and general browsing & checking emails impossible. Overall though a very pleasant stay.

    We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us despite the inclement weather! As for our wi-fi (or lack-of) we continue to look into ways of improving it. Thank-you for your feedback. Property Owner

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.
