THE OLD BARN HOLIDAY COTTAGE

Set nestling in a superb position, at the foot of England’s highest mountain (Scafell), and on the edge of England’s deepest lake (Wastwater), is Woodhow Farm with its two holiday cottages – the Old Barn sleeps 4 (pictured below) and Stable End sleeps 6. The farm is in the heart of the Wasdale Valley, one of the most peaceful parts of the Lake District National Park.

The Old Barn Holiday Cottage

The Farm has existed since 1757 and has changed over the centuries. However, many original features remain, from the original water pump to the barns that form the heart of the Woodhow. Still a traditional working farm with a flock of Herdwick Sheep, it has recently taken on some new additions in the form of two herds of goat!

With rocky outcrops and ancient broadleaved woodlands all surrounding the Farm, and footpaths crisscrossing the land leading to hundreds of walks right outside your door, Woodhow Farm offers you everything a holiday in the Lake District is all about.

Broadleaved woodlands

Some of the Broadleaved Woodland is very old and species rich. Wild flowers flourish alongside a vast array of other wildlife, including badgers, deer and foxes, to buzzards and ravens. Woodhow Farm boasts its own Tarn that is home to a vast array of birds, waterfowl and insects, and the resident Heron can often be seen nestling at the waters edge.

Wastwater Lake itself is only a short stroll away, and boasts some of the best walking & diving in the Lake District.

Wasdale & Wastwater

There are three pubs in the valley - Wasdale Head Inn at the top of the lake, and the Screes & the Strands face each other in Nether Wasdale on the way to Gosforth Village.
