Little Ground Cottage
Little Ground Cottage is a picture perfect cottage in the heart of the most unspoilt scenery in the Lake District. Situated in Wasdale, this self-catering holiday cottage sleeps up to 5 people in three comfortable bedrooms with a sofabed for up to 2 more.
Little Ground has been recently renovated to provide modern living, whilst retaining its charming original features . Built in the 1700s, original beams line the ceilings in the dining and sitting rooms and a large woodburner keeps the cottage warm in the colder months.
The legendary Wasdale pub landlord Will Ritson once lived in this cottage. He told tall tales from behind the bar of his pub and so started the World's Biggest Liar Contest!
From the front of the property you can enjoy superb views across the valley to the famous Wastwater Screes. The cottage is located at the entrance of Wasdale proper, prime walking country, this unspoilt valley offers routes to the roof of England, to Scafell Pike, Great Gable and Pillar. A public footpath passes the cottage providing direct access to Buckbarrow, Seatallen and the high peaks beyond as well as many, scenic low-level, walks through to Wastwater.
Two excellent pubs The Screes and The Strands are within walking distance in Nether Wasdale and the Wasdale Head Inn is definitely worth a visit for its atmospheric bar and beer garden views.
