Welcome to Wha House Cottage. Set in the beautiful surroundings of Upper Eskdale, Wha House is a working farm with approximately 800 sheep. The cottage is ideal for walkers wanting to explore the quieter side of the Lakes. There are hundreds of walks right from the door – climb up Scafell (the highest mountain in England) or Harter fell, or hike across the fells to Wasdale and Wastwater (the deepest lake in England), or follow the valley bottom, alongside the river Esk, past Stanley Gyhll waterfall and on to Ravenglass Estuary. Pets are welcome and riders who would like to bring their horse to explore the countryside can house their horse on the farm itself.

The Woolpack Inn is a 10 minute walk away and serves good food and real ales. Boot village with its small shop, the Burnmoor Inn and Poachers Bar (both of which also serve food and real ale) is around a half hour walk. There are two other pubs in Eskdale, the George IV and the Bower House Inn (10 and 15 minute drive). Eskdale also has a village shop which sells a comprehensive range of goods, including groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables, food to go, alcohol and newspapers.
