This gorgeous cottage has an enviable remote location, somewhere you can immerse yourselves in the unspoilt natural beauty of the Lake District National Park whilst enjoying quality time with loved ones.

Sitting in the magnificent Wasdale Valley and surrounded by stunning views you'll find this wonderful Lakeland farmhouse for eight to ten people to escape to. Inside you'll find a great kitchen, living-dining room and bright sun room. Also on the ground floor is a cosy snug. Upstairs on the first floor there are four lovely bedrooms, the family bathroom and shower room. Outside there is parking for two to three cars next to the cottage and a fantastic rear garden with stunning views towards the surrounding fells.

Walkers will rejoice at the choice of routes on offer, from woodland walks and lakeside strolls to high fells, there's something to suit everyone here. Take a walk along country roads down to Wastwater, England's deepest lake, or explore the woods around nearby Nether Wasdale. You can tick off some of the area's most popular fells during your stay including Yewbarrow, Pillar, Buckbarrow and the mighty Great Gable. The well prepared can also tackle Scafell Pike, England's highest mountain. You'll be in need of some refreshments after all that exercise. Just 2.5 miles away in the hamlet of Nether Wasdale are two popular pubs, perfect for a real ale and a hearty meal after a long day out exploring.

Why not spend a day exploring the neighbouring valley of Eskdale? Take a ride on La'al Ratty, the much loved Ravenglass to Eskdale steam railway, and admire the views of the estuary and fells from a different perspective. Plan a visit to Muncaster Castle at Ravenglass; tour the historic house, explore the 77 acres of gardens or take in one of the amazing bird of prey flying displays. Enjoy a walk at remote Devoke Water or head to the South Cumbrian coast. Enjoy a bracing stroll along the beach, taking in the wide open vistas as you go.

The well-equipped kitchen is sure to be a hit with the cooks in the group. In here you'll find a small and large built-in electric oven and four hobs, large full height fridge, separate freezer (this is 3/4 height) and a dishwasher so there's no need to fight over who has to do the washing up! There's also a useful washing machine should you need to make use of this during your stay. The living-dining room has a great mix of character features alongside all the modern comforts you could need. Gather round the dining table and catch up on the day's events over a hearty home cooked meal before moving to relax on the sofas. There's a large TV for entertainment and a selection of books inluding Lake District guides and OS maps, ideal for planning your next adventure!

Also on the ground floor is a cosy snug, the perfect place to escape to with a good book. A bright sun room makes the most of the fabulous views and completes the downstairs. There's a second TV in here with a DVD player and selection of DVDs, so it's the perfect place to retreat to should rain stop play outside.

Onwards and upwards to the first floor and the four lovely bedrooms. The first bedroom is a delightful double, next up is a spacious king size room, a lovely super-king room and last but by no means least is the cosy twin room (this room can also be made up as a double upon request). All of the bedrooms have fantastic views out towards the surrounding fells, perfect for indulging in a long lie in with a morning cuppa.

Also on the first floor are two bathrooms. The family shower room has a WC, wasbasin and fantastic walk-in shower that's perfect for reinvigorating tired muscles after a day on the fells. There's also a family bathroom with WC, wash basin, separate corner shower and bath so all tastes are catered for here. This bathroom is accessed through the super-king bedroom.

As well as off-road parking for two or three cars, there is a large rear garden. With amazing views, you're sure to be spending a lot of time out here! Take advantage of the garden furniture to enjoy meals al fresco with a stunning backdrop. Don’t forget to look up at the dark skies, you’ll be amazed at how breathtakingly beautiful the night sky looks around here on a clear night.

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages.
