About & Contact

Named after England's deepest lake, Wastwater

A stunning cottage with an enormous 30ft living room with high ceiling, baby grand piano and glorious views.

Recently refurbished with new bathrooms and beds, Wastwater has something to suit everyone in your party. The downstairs double bedrooms are quiet and private and the upstairs twin and single bedrooms are ideal for tucking the younger members of the family up in at night, while the adults can enjoy some quiet time downstairs, beneath the impressive oak beams! In contrast, during the day, the open plan living and dining area allows the whole family to unite and has ample space to play, read, dine or even sing along to the piano! The two downstairs bedrooms and bathrooms make Wastwater an ideal choice for those with limited mobility or requiring downstairs facilities.

Wastwater, England's deepest lake, is a pleasant 5 mile walk away over to the neighbouring valley. This is definitely one that all ages can tackle as it avoids the steep ascents of other Lake District footpaths. You will also encounter our peat hut and the bedazzling Burnmoor tarn along the way, as well as Neolithic and Bronze Age Stone Circles!

'Thank you for making such a memorable stay. The quality of Wastwater Cottage is exceptional, all the more a treat for Margaret who got to play the baby grand piano much to her delight. Eskdale new to us is the perfect location and enabled us to explore both locally and as far as Scafell Pike and Helvellyn. Wonderful scenery all around. We couldn't recommend the cottage highly enough'.

Accommodation summary:

Ground floor: brand new kitchen, installed in early 2018, large 30ft open plan dining area and lounge with baby grand piano. 1 double bedroom with king-size bed. 1 double bedroom with king-size bed and en suite wetroom recently remodelled. New family shower room.

First floor: 1 twin bedroom with 2 single beds, 1 bedroom with single captain’s bed with full size, pull out, single mattress underneath and full size baby cot plus new en suite bathroom with bath recently installed.

Meet the owner

Greg Poole

Now in our 29th year of providing exclusive, luxury accommodation here at Bridge End Farm Cottages, myself, Greg, and the team at Select Cottages are assuredly well-versed in providing all our guests with a truly exceptional Lakeland experience. Having lived and brought up a family in The Farmhouse, we now often return for our own holidays, as you can see from the photos! My connections with Premier Cottages go back a long way too! As one of the founding members and original Directors I introduced the name 'Premier Cottages' and served on the Board the first 4 years with responsibility for the brochure, marketing and recruitment. I am very proud that Bridge End Farm Cottages are one of less than a dozen properties that have remained under the same ownership and have continuously advertised in Premier Cottages in all 20 years of its existence! We look forward to personally welcoming you and your family in our Lakeland paradise!
