1692 Wasdale is a small boutique B&B situated in an elevated position at the entrance to the Wasdale Valley with superb views and easy access to all the western peaks including Scafell Pike and Great Gable. The Western Lake District is the quieter side, here you will find mountains, lakes , valleys, a fantastic coastline with miles and miles of sand and some great sunsets. In this exposed and rather rugged part of the National Park, now a World Heritage site, each season brings its own delights.

Relax and unwind in a unique blend of old buildings, stylish design and modern comforts. There is a large lounge with a contemporary open fire and piano, a dining room and outside courtyard, a boot-room with drying facilities, reception and 5 luxurious en-suite bedrooms. High beamed ceilings and exposed stonework complemented by under-floor heated timber and flagstone floors plus a tranquil location make this a very unique 'place to stay'.

There are 5 modern, luxurious and well appointed super-king en-suite bedrooms. Each is unique in layout and decor with luxury hand made beds, crisp white bed linen, feather light duvets and Herdwick Sheepskin Rugs. All out bedrooms have a 4K smart TV, free Wi-Fi, tea and Nespresso coffee making facilities, a seating area and a west facing patio with views to the sea.

Our contemporary en-suite bathrooms all have walk in showers, large soft Egyptian cotton towels, complementary toiletries from The Bath House and a heated floor. Additionally, two of our rooms have a mezzanine level bathroom incorporating a freestanding bath.

Delicious breakfasts are served in the dining room but can also be enjoyed outside on sunny mornings or delivered to your room for extra indulgence. Help yourself from the buffet including home made yogurt, fresh fruit, pastries, cereals and fresh bread whilst your cooked breakfast is prepared using locally sourced bacon, sausage and our own free-range eggs wherever possible. The menu includes a variety of options including vegetarian and other dietary requirements can be available if you let us know in advance.

Owners Faith and Steve are always on hand for a chat or to advice on walks and activities to help you get the most out of your stay.
