Self-catering holiday accommodation around Wastwater
Wastwater is in the Wasdale Valley and is a 3-mile-long lake. At 260 feet deep, it is the deepest in the Lake District. It is now owned by the National Trust and offers some of the best views in the country so is worth a visit. Backed by mountains on all sides, it has an element of drama to its scenery. Surrounding Wastwater are a few scenic villages, each with a welcoming pub, such as Wasdale Head and Nether Wasdale.
Being on the western edge of the Lake District it means you can also visit Cockermouth, Ravenglass and Buttermere, as well as attempt Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain, which is at the far end of the water. Its location also means you are close to the unspoilt Cumbrian coast, lined with pretty villages and port towns.
