Burnthwaite Farm is the most relaxed, friendly place I have ever stayed. From the moment of our arrival (late because the traffic was awful), Andy and Georgie made us feel really welcome. Breakfast was delicious, (nothing was too much trouble) our room was warm and comfortable and our afternoon in front of the log burner watching a film was just...

I chose to stay here because i knew Wasdale was one of the best places in the lakes for feeling as cut-off as possible (i needed the break from work!). The farm itself sits at the base of Kirk Fell and Great Gable with some fantastic views of the surrounding fells and the valley. It is a working farm and...

I travel to the Lake District every six weeks undertaking the 214 Wainwrights in 36 walks, but struggled to find accomodation during the Halloween weekend. I travelled to Ingleton falls for the wonderful waterfall walk and then onto the Lakes. Day 1 visited Ingleton falls, Hardknott pass and Bower House Inn pub. Day 2 Visited Buttermere and Syke farm then...

We stayed in the cottage at Burnthwaite for a couple of very relaxing days whilst walking. It is the perfect spot for ascents of Great Gable, Scafell, Steeple and the other great fells located around Wastwater. The cottage itself is traditional and basic but wants for nothing. There is a kitchen with all facilities and a dining table, a small...

Couldn't have asked for a better stay. Located in a stunning area of the lakes, with a gorgeous pub just 2 minutes walk- food was delicious and well worth a visit after a big walk in the Lakes! Rooms were lovely with comfy beds and central heating through the night. Breakfast was a full English (vegetarian option for me which...

Nice B&B with a lovely breakfast. My only negative was that the bed was too soft which made for an uncomfortable night - that could just be personal preference though! Not the strongest shower but does the job. Gillian was lovely and breakfast was great

After a very wet day on the hills we were very warmly welcomed by Andrew and Gillian. The farmhouse is beautifully kept and the rooms tidy, warm and neat. The super deep bath was especially welcome. If you want a hearty breakfast, roaring fire and endlessly patient hosts, in a place at the head of Wasdale - this is it....
