In the tiny hamlet of Greendale, with views of the Wasdale Screes and a short walk from the shores of Wast Water, this comfortable cottage is in a stunning location. Wasdale is probably Lakeland’s most unspoilt and most spectacular valley, with the lake, the dramatic screes and the peaks of Pillar, Great Gable and the Scafells surrounding Wasdale Head. The sandy beach at Seascale is just 15 minutes drive. This is a walker’s paradise but if you don’t want to walk, enjoy the peace and admire the view.
Sleeps 4 (1 double, 1 twin); living room/diner, with TV, DVD, CD/radio, wifi hub; fitted kitchen area with electric oven/hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer; fully-

Around and About
Wasdale is a magnificent unspoiled corner of the Lake District, where the dramatic Screes plunge into waters of the lake with England’s highest mountains looking down. Truly a walker’s paradise, but there are pleasant lakeside walks as well as the more challenging fell tops. Other local tourist attractions include Muncaster Castle, the scenic Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway and Hardknott Roman Fort. Two miles away, Nether Wasdale has two excellent pubs and is a gentle stroll across the fields. There are pubs and shops in nearby Gosforth, and a little further Seascale has an wonderful sandy beach. But above all, Wasdale is all about the lake, the screes and the mountains -

“Can we just say how much we loved this cottage -
