Call this first-floor apartment home during your break and enjoy spending time admiring the terrific views from the comfort of the sofa. End your day in the fresh air by taking a drink out to the courtyard.

This characterful holiday home is a wonderfully lovely apartment in the heart of the Wasdale Valley. It’s one of those places that has a really nice ‘feel’ to it – perhaps this is due to the comfortable lounge area, or maybe it’s the totally amazing views, or the knowledge that nature is all around, whatever it is, it’s the place to come to and switch off from all the stresses of daily life!

Wasdale is one of the most awe-inspiring valleys in the Lake District. The view of Great Gable towering over the dark depths of Wastwater is iconic. The lake itself is just a half a mile away, and there are footpaths all over the fells behind this characterful holiday home. And of course the monumental Scafell Pike is at the top end of the lake just waiting to be climbed!

If you’d like to explore further afield, or buy cake and other supplies, then the village of Gosforth is 10 minutes by car and has a popular bakery and local store. The castle at Muncaster is 20 minutes away and is a great day of exploration, history and wild gardens. And Eskdale is the very next valley along (in fact you can walk there over the tops if you’re feeling energetic). It’s the stopping place for the “la’al ratty” – a miniature steam railway making a beautiful 7 mile journey from Eskdale to the coast.

The main room at the property is large and light with stupendous views from the double windows. Sink into the leather chairs and feel the sun on your face! There are guide books, novels and maps to browse through.

The kitchen area is lovely and modern with a cottage ‘feel’ to it. It’s equipped with electric hob, oven, separate microwave, fridge and freezer, as well as storage space. There is dining for four by one of the windows.

There are two bedrooms, both doubles, Again with lovely views.

The bathroom is modern with a large walk in electric shower.

Outside is a courtyard shared with the other apartments, and then all around is fellside to explore.

Nice accommodation.Was clean and comfortable. Location is superb however you will get zero phone or internet reception and there is no WiFi at the address. Better available for the price asked if you book early enough. Overall I would stay again but only if no other availability locally which is why we stayed this time .

Nice enough apartment for our needs. We love the Wasdals location and the situation was spot on. Zero mobile coverage and no internet, though if youre a BT customer there were some shared networks in range. The person staying beliw us let their dog bark from 7am in the morning which was irritating. Beds were uncomfortable. Shower was great. Next tiRead moreme we will be looking for a cottage rather than shared apartment building for a more relaxing and quiet break. Hide

There is no courtyard to sit inasmuch advertised it is a work site and feel this should have been made clear. Although it states that there is no WiFi it doesn't mention that there is no 4g or mobile phone reception which leaves you very vulnerable . Overall it was a very pleasant stay ideal for walking and water sports.

A basic but comfortable apartment with stunning views and a great location. Bedrooms very small but big enough to sleep in. Spotless. Loved walking the half mile to Wastwater each morning for a chilly swim. Lots of walking direct from the door and close to Wasdale Head to tackle some of the Wainwright giants. Recommend the pubs in Nether Wasdale (SRead moretrands) and also in Boot (The Boot Inn & Brooke House). Would stay here again. Hide

Accommodation was perfect, the pictures don't do the apartment justice it was spot on. ( plenty of equipment, fresh towels and bedding, brillant cooker and shower, apartment stayed lovely and warm.

Brillant locRead moreation, closed to the places we visited but most of the all the best location for us all to visit the lake so close by ( we enjoyed a swim). Hide
