Stable End Cottage Wasdale
Brilliant cottage in one of the best locations in the Lake District. Peaceful and quiet with stunning surroundings. The cottage is 250 years old but very well appointed and has been tastefully modernised. Wi-fi is a bonus as Wasdale has no mobile telephone coverage which is a massive bonus if you want peace and tranquillity. This cottage really does tick all of the boxes. Hosts most welcoming, very nice people. Very highly recommended.

The cottage was snug and warm and well laid out. A comfortable space to spend a week. The surrounding area is fantastic with great walks on the doorstep. Being on the farm was great too. The owners were excellent hosts, they were just what you want; friendly and helpful but respectful of "our space". They really added to the enjoyment of the stay.
Mr Purvis

We had a fantastic stay at Stable End Cottage. The house is beautiful and comfortable and has everything you need to make you feel happy. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for the Western Lake District and beautifully situated for Wast Water and Scafell. We can truly recommend Stable End Cottage and hope to come back in the future!

The owners were very helpful and did everything they could to make us feel welcome. We enjoyed every moment of our stay. The cottage is tastefully decorated..
Dr Kassim

We had a wonderful weekend break and regretted not staying for longer. The setting and facilities were superb with extremely accommodating hosts. It seemed to us to be the absolute model of what a holiday in the Lake District should be. We felt at home and we can't wait to return.
