Bring your walking boots and explore the natural beauty spots of the Wasdale Valley from this cosy cottage for two, or simply put your feet up, relax and admire the surrounding Lake District fells.

Nestled in the Lake District’s peaceful Wasdale Valley, this rural retreat is enveloped by picture-postcard scenery. England’s tallest mountain, Scafell Pike, is just 4.5 miles away while the country’s deepest lake, Wastwater, is only 2 miles and makes for a wonderful walk. The neighbouring valley of Eskdale is 6.5 miles away where you can hop aboard the famous Ravenglass and Eskdale Steam Railway, take a stroll along golden sands at Drigg Beach or visit the historic Muncaster Castle. And when you’re feeling peckish, the valley offers a wealth of friendly pubs and eateries to enjoy – the nearest pub is only 2.5 miles from the cottage if you fancy a night off from cooking.

Open the wooden picket gate and head inside this charming, studio-style accommodation with its sloping ceilings and Velux windows. The open-plan layout, which is all on one level, features a living area with a TV and an inviting high quality L-shaped sofa that can be converted into a double bed with mattress topper using the bedding provided. At the other end of the room is a galley kitchen area which is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, kettle, toaster, and built-in fridge/freezer, as well as a dining table and chairs for two. A door leads from this kitchen area to the bathroom which features a WC and shower over the bath where you can look forward to a soothing soak after a day in the great outdoors.

Outside, the enclosed, fenced garden boasts a generous lawn and is a lovely spot to unwind and soak up the far-reaching views of the surrounding fells. On a sunny day, dine alfresco using the bistro-style table and chairs on the patio. There is parking for one car around 10 metres from the cottage.

Be prepared it's a small space (2.55m wide x 8m long incl. bathroom = approx. 20-21m2). Re-reading the description it's accurate, just we felt it was too small. Has well-equipped kitchen though, also good shower. But sofa bed is impractical - you'll have to remake it daily if you want somewhere to sit, plus the person on inside has to clamber over Read morethe end to get out. Bring eyeshades as light wakes you up from edge of Velux blinds. Fridge noise might be problem for light sleepers. Hide

Lovely place to stay, there is a Karen that lives down the road that caused a bit of a problem and Id suggest taking your own toilet roll as the owners didnt provide any besides half a single roll which he expected to last 2 people for 5 days.

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
