It's hard to imagine a more perfect setting for a Lake District B&B, with stunning views over the Wasdale Valley.

It’s hard to imagine a more perfect setting than this Lake District boutique B&B, on the western side of the lake district with stunning views into the Wasdale Valley. The old barns have been lovingly updated to provide five gorgeous suites, all furnished to an exceptional standard with super-kingsize beds, luxurious bathrooms with underfloor heating, and some offering outdoor seating space.

As well as the smart, contemporary, decor, you’ll find homely touches such as delicious biscuits baked by the owner, locally sourced toiletries and fascinating family photos on the walls.  The family also made a strong commitment to ‘keeping it local’ with beds, furnishings and even the windows all being supplied by local traders. Evening meals aren’t served on site but Gosforth village is just a stone’s throw away and has a variety of wonderful pubs and restaurants where you can enjoy a good plateful of local food. Perhaps the most spectacular feature of all is the hot tub, situated just outside the farmhouse, with breathtaking views down towards Wast Water.  In the summer it’s a relaxing place to sit and enjoy the views; in the winter, when the surrounding fells are covered in snow, it is truly magical.

Dogs are allowed in 3 of the ground floor rooms and there are two large fields on the doorstep where you can enjoy a good run in the mornings and evenings.  There’s a stunning walk leading right from the door, deep into the local countryside, as well as vast array of other local trails just a short drive away.  When you all return muddy, soggy, and ready for a rest, you’ll find a drying room to store your gear in and a well stocked honesty bar and snack box to tide you over. Gosforth village is just a stone’s throw away and has good pubs and restaurants. Perhaps the most enticing feature of all is the hot tub, situated just outside the farmhouse, with breathtaking views towards Scafell Pike and the Screes.
