    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Set in the spectacular Wasdale valley, Roan Wood is a comfortable cottage sleeping 4.

    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.

This is the best location I have stayed in, it is away from the hussle and bustle, very peaceful with stunning views second to none. Many walks straight from the door to suite a range of abilities. The Eskdale to Ravenglass railway and Muncaster castle are a short drive away and well worth a visit. Also we took a trip... more

The location is wonderful... more
