Situated at Wasdale Head on the quieter side of the Lake District, Burnthwaite Farm Cottage provides clean & comfortable accommodation for up to four people.

Burnthwaite 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 Burnthwaite Farm Cottage and you are more than welcome to bring your dog with you. Footpaths lead from the farm up Scafell and Great Gable. Or you can walk over the fells to the Eskdale valley. Wastwater lake is a couple of miles from the farm and there are many good swimming spots on its shores. 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 (a twenty minute walk away), and the Screes & the Strands (five miles) face each other on the way to Gosforth Village (where you will find everyday provisions).
