Places to stay in the Western Valleys

Views of Scafell Pike

Avoid the Lake District crowds with a stay in the spectacular and beautiful western valleys.

Base yourself in Wasdale, Eskdale or the Duddon Valley at one of our four cottages or set up camp at Wasdale Campsite at the foot of Scafell Pike.

These three valleys offer a wide variety of walking and climbing possibilities as well as good cycling routes on easy flats along the valleys or over the high passes of Hardknott and Wrynose.

For sightseers there is Hardknott Roman Fort, Muncaster Castle and the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway to enjoy.
