Situated in the Wasdale valley on the quieter side of the Lake District, Bowderdale Farm Cottage is part of a traditional working Lakeland farm.

Bowderdale Farm Cottage

Wasdale itself boasts England's deepest lake (Wastwater), England's highest mountain (Scafell), England's smallest church (St Olaf's) and England's biggest liar (home to the biggest liar competitions).

There are hundreds of walks right from the door of Bowderdale Farm Cottage. The lake is a five minutes walk away or you can go high up on the fells and mountains (the image above shows Yewbarrow as seen from the farm track). There are many good swimming spots on the shores of Wastwater which is one of the quieter lakes. It is also the playground of rival diving clubs - gossip has it that each club has gnomes on the lake bed, one of whom has a noose around his neck resulting from an argument between two clubs. Wasdale is also the birthplace of british climbing with excellent climbs of all grades.

There are three pubs in the valley - Wasdale Head in at the top of the lake (two miles), and the Screes & the Strands (three miles) face each other on the way to Gosforth Village (where you will find everyday provisions).
