Snowy view of Wastwater from Great Gable

The climb up Great Gable is a Lake District classic. It is one of England's highest mountains at 899m above sea level and as you're walking up it's ridges you'll experience breathtaking Lake District views. When the valley is covered in snow, the scenes from Great Gable over Wastwater are truly enchanting.

Grisedale Tarn surrounded by snow

Grisedale Tarn is in the Eastern Lake District and is between the glorious Lakeland Fells, Fairfield, Seat Sandal and Dollywagon Pike. There are lots of walks around the Tarn and into the surrounding fells and our favourite is an easy to moderate walk following Grisedale Beck towards Patterdale. Click here for our cottages nearby.

Snow on Eskdale Railway

Eskdale is one of the most beautiful and peaceful valley's in the Lake District and stretches from Gosforth through to the foot of Hard Knot Pass taking in some beautiful Lakeland Villages on the way. The Ravenglass and Eskdale railway or “La’al Ratty” as it's known to locals, runs through the valley and is one of the most stunning train journey's in the country. Browse our Eskdale Cottages here.
