  • A romantic retreat near Wastwater, England’s deepest lake
  • Enjoy breathtaking fell views while dining alfresco in the garden
  • End the day with a relaxing bubble bath in the stylish bathroom
Property code: SZ609

Bring your walking boots and explore the natural beauty spots of the Wasdale Valley from this cosy cottage for two, or simply put your feet up, relax and admire the surrounding Lake District fells.

Surrounded by stunning scenery, this cosy retreat for two is a fantastic base for exploring the magnificent Wasdale Valley. Be sure to bring your hiking boots with you as you’ll be spoilt for choice by the walks on offer from the door. There are plenty of high fells to choose from, including Scafell Pike. And as well as England’s highest mountain, Wasdale is also home to Wastwater, England’s deepest lake, and the smallest church, St Olaf’s. The valley has plenty of friendly pubs to try out so be sure to stop off on your way back to the cottage.

Hop across to neighbouring Eskdale, another beautiful valley. Enjoy a ride on the famous La’al Ratty steam train, head to the beach at Drigg or visit historic Muncaster Castle. Though enjoying a more remote setting, the rest of The Lakes are still within easy reach. Why not spend a day exploring Keswick, the adventure capital of the North Lakes? Or head east to bustling Bowness and Windermere, with its wealth of visitor attractions, shops and restaurants.

Offering studio-style, flexible accommodation with a handy sofa bed, this is a delightful cottage for two. Head through the wooden picket gate to discover this gem of a retreat. Once inside, the charming, rustic feel of this bijou cottage is sure to delight. The open-plan layout makes it a very easy cottage to enjoy spending time in. The living area has an inviting L-shaped sofa and a TV, but you might prefer to gaze out at the stunning views instead! The sofa can be converted into a high quality double sofa bed – it will be left as a sofa for your arrival, but all the bedding will be available, so you can make the sofa bed up as and when it suits you.

At the other end of the room, the galley kitchen has been cleverly designed, making full use of the space on offer, and it’s well equipped with all the essentials for a self-catering holiday. There's an electric oven and hob, a handy microwave, and a built-in fridge/freezer, as well as the all-important kettle and toaster. Opposite the kitchen area is the dining table, perfect for moving seamlessly from cooking to eating. A door leads through from the kitchen area to the separate bathroom. As well as the WC, there is a stylish shower over the bath, ideal for refreshing tired muscles after a long day on the fells.

A door leads out from the living area to the enclosed private garden, a truly fantastic space. Out here you'll find a generous lawn and a delightful patio area with a bistro-style table and chairs, and there are wonderful views of the surrounding fells - it’s a lovely spot to relax and unwind after a day out exploring.

  • 1 bedroom – double high quality  Cocoon sofa bed with topper (please note, the sofa bed will not be made up for your arrival, but bedding will be provided)

It's all about the fabulous location really, but the apartment is warm, nicely appointed and has everything you need. Obviously, it isn't the most spacious, but you'll be out and about all day, It's absolutely fine for cooking, dining and relaxing. Having a garden to admire the mountains from is a bonus. Converting the Sofa into a bed was a bit of Read morea faff so I left it as a bed. I found Internet connectivity better than expected and perfectly usable for a bit of work and entertainment. Hide

This is a great little getaway in a beautiful area. Sofa bed is plenty comfortable. Kitchen has everything you need. Bath was super hot. Be aware that you are not near anything, which is great but means it's a drive to get food. Bower House Inn was our fav. Parking is a little tricky. You may have to park 300m away at the footpath and walk back. ThRead moree area itself is stunning and has access to Scafell Pike and others either direct from the cottage or a short drive to Wasdale Head along the lake Hide

One car space is advertised but there is no designated place on the property. Information says 10 meters to right of cottage but of course it depends where you stand. Other information says park at side of cottage which would mean parking fully on the road. Either way you need to park on a bend near a humped back bridge. We ended up parking 1/2 on Read moreroad 1/2 a narrow on verge. If you order a food delivery ensure you advise them of the directions given. Ours never arrived! Hide

First of all, we enjoyed our stay at Little Greendale very much. The cottage is layed out as a tiny house and is very neat. The surroundings and views are stunning.
