This place just 3 minutes drive from the A595, 20 mins drive to Wasdale Head and convenient for various surrounding pub restaurants. The house is a beautifully converted old school furnished with comfortable bedrooms, gorgeous gardens, outdoor seating and a lovely conservatory where we had breakfast watching the birds outside. We spotted a woodpecker and several blue/great tits. It was so quiet and peaceful at night. Lesley is a friendly and attentive host eager to ensure we had everything we needed. We arrived to home made chocolate sweets, tiffin cakes and schnapps in our room and gin & tonic cakes the next day after our walk. We left with some delicious peanut butter and nut fudge for our walk. She also does a packed lunch with some amazing sandwiches. There was a fridge with fresh milk in the corridor handy for storing drinks. The breakfasts were delicious and you could have pretty much anything you want. I've read some reviews online and I think a few of them especially from some non-UK visitors were rather unfair. It seems that they were a little unrealistic in their expectations of this place asking for a local bus or train service and complaining about it being remote and quiet. Wasdale is all about all about 1) the tallest mountain - Scafell Pike 2) the deepest lake - Wast Water - with its haunting surreal beautiful scenery 3) Walking (plenty of it as most of the tallest Wainwrights are all here) and 4) Sheep and I loved every minute of our week.

This is the second time we have stayed at this bed and breakfast. It was just as fabulous as the first time. Our host, Leslie was so welcoming and helpful. She couldn't do enough for us and we felt like we were staying with a friend - completely at home. The room was really comfortable and the breakfasts were amazing - Leslie is such a good cook. The location is so scenic and peaceful and is the perfect location to access the numerous hikes available in the area. We will definitely be back.

This is a first class B&B. It is peaceful and well laid out. The breakfast is excellent and my only regret is that they don't do an evening meal as I am sure it would be very good.
