About Wasdale Hall Lodge

A stone cottage with traditional furnishings located in the remote valley of Wasdale.

Stay in a Lake District beauty spot, once voted Britain’s best view. Wasdale Hall Lodge sits just yards from the south-western end of Wastwater, England’s deepest and most tranquil lake. You’ll be nestled in the remote valley in a sturdy stone cottage renovated with traditional furnishings. 

There is extensive high fell walking and outdoor activities from its door step. The start of the trail routes to Scafell Pike and Great Gable are located a short drive away at the other end of the lake. The nearby village of Nether Wasdale is home to pubs, while Wasdale Head and Gosforth have a local shop and restaurant.

Beyond the mountains the Cumbrian coast and shingle beach at Ravenglass are just a 20-minute drive from the cottage.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
