My wife and I have just spent a near perfect long weekend at the Wasdale Head Inn. Accompanied by near perfect weather we spent three nights at the hotel whilst we walked Scarfel and did the very difficult scramble along the east bank of Wasdale Water beneath "The Scree's".....(Small warning - don't take young children or grandparents on this little lake side walk..it's badly strewn with scree, rubble and boulders.... they'll not make it down to Nether Wasdale)
You must take your hat off to the Wasdale Inn staff who not only run a 3 star hotel establishment but a camp site and full bar and restaurant for a myriad of visitors and guests with a good deal of professionalism, good cheer and humour. If you add in their mountain rescue skills as well I think you can appreciate what's a super set of people they are. Very enjoyable stay and felt most relaxed and well cared for throughout our visit. Highly recommended by me.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The world-famous Wasdale Head Inn, known as the birthplace of climbing, is dramatically surrounded by England's tallest mountains, making it the finest base for walking and climbing. 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
