Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
Wasdale Head, Cumbria, England
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

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Roan Wood Cottage is very well equipped (however a washing machine would have been a bonus - especially as we were moving on elsewhere after our stay). We did know there wasn't a machine in the cottage, but thought we could do washing locally but this did not work out as we expected. The property is exceptionally clean and has...

Management response:

Hi, thanks for your feedback, we're glad that you enjoyed your stay. Regarding the washing machine, there is a finite amount of space in the kitchen and we had to decide between a dishwasher or a washing machine. On balance, we think our guests would prefer a dishwasher, and many people would not have the need to do washing during...

This is a lovely property in a great location. The cottage is actually much bigger than it looks in the images and the facilities are excellent, with a really well stocked kitchen with all the appliances we needed to make the evenings we stayed in perfect. The local pubs are excellent, and the access to some of the best of...

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.
