Set in the spectacular Wasdale valley, Roan Wood is a comfortable cottage sleeping 4. The location is stunning, with views to the front across to the dramatic Wasdale Screes, and to the rear towards the towering butresses of Buckbarrow. From the front gate, there is the famous vista of the mountains surrounding Wasdale Head - Yewbarrow, Great Gable, Scafell Pike and Scafell - with a glimpse of Wastwater in the valley bottom. A gentle stroll from the cottage brings you to the lake shore and the viewpoint voted as 'The Nation's Favourite View'. This is truly a walker's paradise with paths ascending to Buckbarrow, Middle Fell and Seatallen immediately behind the cottage, or a few minutes drive to Wasdale Head opens up a huge range of mountain walks. There are excellent pubs nearby in Nether Wasdale, and Gosforth is 10 mi... Read more

Beautiful cottage, has everything needed included maps - very clean - perfect base to explore the Wasdale area, which is outstandingly gorgeous.

How to get there
Airport: Manchester: 111.8 mi
Railway: Seascale: 7.5 mi
It is possible to get to the cottage by train to Seascale and then use Gosforth Taxis to get to the cottage. We have had guests who say they have hardly used the car all week, but in general most people would probably feel that a car is essential.
