With uninterrupted views of the Wasdale fells, Scaw Fell holiday cottage offers self catering accommodation in a stunning location which is a wonderful starting point for hundreds of walks, either on the high fells or along the banks of the River that flows past the pub at Santon Bridge. Scafell Pike is a short distance away at the end of the Wasdale Valley.
The Santon Bridge Inn is just a 10-minute walk away and hosts the International “Greatest Liar” competition towards the end of the year. It also serves good food and fine ale. Wasdale (10 mins drive) also boasts England's deepest lake (Wastwater), highest mountain (Scafell) and smallest church (St Olaf's).
Eskdale is another lovely valley, only 10 minutes drive away, with hundreds of river and mountain walks. It also houses a terminus for the Ravenglass and Eskdale Steam Railway - a popular miniature railway that travels seven scenic miles to the coastal fishing village of Ravenglass. Muncaster Castle, Gardens and Owl Centre is also 15 minutes away and has lots going on all year round.
