High Holme enjoys an elevated position overlooking the peaceful hamlet of Nether Wasdale in the dramatic Wasdale Valley, and provides accommodation for ten people. There are outstanding views from the large living room windows towards the famous Wasdale screes, and it is ideally located for exploring some of England's highest and most rugged mountain scenery.
There are two excellent pubs within a minute's walk from High Holme, one of which (The Strands Inn) has its own microbrewery and was recently voted CAMRA pub of the year for West Cumbria. Wastwater, England's deepest lake, is only a couple of miles away, as is the view along the lake towards the mountains of Great Gable, Yewbarrow and Scafell, which was voted as Britain's best on TV a few years ago.
Just ten minutes drive away at the head of the valley is the famous Wasdale Head Inn, as well as England's highest mountain Scafell Pike and its smallest church, St Olaf's. For daily provisions there is a well stocked village store three miles away in the village of Gosforth.
