Watendlath bothy sits next to the tarn in the picturesque and quiet hamlet that shares its name. High in a beautiful valley, it offers superb access to the surrounding fells.
The bothy should be treated very much as a ‘stone tent’ so all your camping gear such as cutlery, plates, sleeping bags, and matches will be needed.

• Single shower with lockable door
• 2 WCs in separate lockable cubicles with own wash hand basin.
• Cooking facilities – a four burner hob with grill powered by electricity
• Fridge
• Bunks – folding top bunks/ fixed lower bunks sleeping up to 6•
• Drinking water
• Hot water: from an electric immersion heater and storage tank
• Wood burning Stove (initial supply of wood provided)
• Communal sleeping area/kitchen/lounge.
