I stayed at the Wasdale Head Inn alone, for 2 nights. Having stayed at Burnthwaite Farm on previous visits to Wasdale, I was reluctant to switch over, however I was thoroughly impressed by the service, food and general atmosphere of the Inn. The fact I managed to score a '2 nights for the price of 1' deal didn't hurt either. The single room was a decent size and served its purpose, as somewhere to pass out after a long day walking. Overall, the service is what made my stay memorable, and seems to have vastly improved since my visit last summer, where I the bar staff seemed a bit out of their depth. Will definitely be returning.

The Inn is situated at the head of remote and unspoiled Wasdale, and if you are seeking the superlative this is where you will find it. England's highest mountain, the deepest lake, the smallest Church, and the original world's biggest liar can all be found in this tranquil corner of the Lake District. The Inn is managed by Georgina Wrathall on behalf of the owners, Nigel and Lesley Burton. ... more less
