A small cottage in a very quiet spot, very peaceful. While the cottage is well equipped and comfortable, size wise it is more suitable for 2 people than 4. The fridge would not hold enough food for 4 people, especially at the moment with all of the restrictions.

Hi Norma, thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay, it's a lovely place for a relaxing break isn't it? And the location is perfect if you enjoy getting out on the fells.
I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

Perfect location for walking, Scafell Pike and the lake. Make sure you shop before you arrive as we took everything we needed as it is a beautiful remote location. Kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans and cutlery and the bedrooms were lovely.

My partner and I stayed at The Screes for a week and absolutely loved it. The location is beautiful and perfect for adventures - 10 minute walk to Wast Water, a path into the mountains right next to the cottage and only a 10 minute drive up to the top of Wast Water for more hiking. Some great pubs nearby too. The cottage was warm, comfortable and very well equipped. Can't wait to return!

Hi Briony, thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. It sounds like you had a wonderful holiday! The location is stunning isn't it? Just perfect for heading out exploring. And the cottage is lovely and cosy to come home to after a day on the fells. Come back soon!
