The gentleman running the hotel was fantastic - he was very helpful in our planning efforts and made a delicious breakfast! The rooms are clean and comfortable. The location on the farm is great - the views from the second story room was breathtaking. It's just a short walk to town and the scenic walk is worth doing a few... More

Burnthwaite Farm is the perfect base for fell walking around Wasdale and Mosedale. It's quiet, comfortable, snug and clean - basic doesn't have to mean uncomfortable. Andrew is a great host, very helpful, and does a very good breakfast. I stayed here in 2011, enjoyed it immensely, and returned this year - and will definitely stay here again when and... More

Andrew and his family are outstanding. I am going back for the Holidays this winter. I am looking forward to the hiking. It is a basic farmhouse but if you are looking for an outstanding value, this is the place to visit.

A wonderful B and B in the most amazing setting. The rooms are basic but clean, breakfast was great, don't be out off by the shared bathrooms etc, although it's a very basic it's just a great place, to get away from the stress of modern day life. Go for it!

Beautiful Bed and Breakfast in a stunning location. Good warm and clean rooms. Andrew is the owner/farmer and combines sheep farming with running the B and B - he is very helpful and friendly and cooks a great breakfast. Would recommend.

Just the most amazing location situated at the head of the Wasdale valley. Perfect for any serious fell walkers/runners out there, only the best of the Lake District outside the front door for your enjoyment (Gabel, Pillar, Scafell's etc). Just a 5 minute walk back to the only Pub within 5 miles, great food offered here. Breakfast at the Burnthwaite... More

Excellent breakfasts, brilliant location. Really off the beaten track! Andrew is a very friendly host and the lounge area is very comfortable and cosy. There are even some interesting books to read. Recommend B&B!

I first came here in 2005 as I wanted creature comforts not available at the National Trust camp site the road. The welcome I received was so warm and friendly back then. June 2014 was my next trip to Wastwater and I knew exactly where I wanted to stay. I wasn't disappointed! Nothing has changed in 9 years except for... More

Andrew, our host, was so accommodating. Our room was spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. The breakfasts were just the ticket before setting out on a day's walking. Couldn't fault anything about our stay. Definitely coming back! Neil & Katherine
