With 500 year old beams, separate kitchen, lounge/dining area and bathroom with gorgeous slipper bath and separate shower you can wake up to the sight of Esk Fell up above and admire your stunning surrounds without having moved your head an inch from your pillow!
Named after Wrynose Fell, which, in spite of it being in the next valley, is well renowned and has been acclaimed to hold, like Hardknott Fell, the other of the Lake District’s most outrageous mountain passes on its slopes! You will similarly be in awe of this smaller but equally supreme abode. For a one bedroom cottage, Wrynose is surprisingly spacious, so if you have a young child, baby or both in your party, Wrynose can accommodate you all. Just let us know and we can add a foldaway bed, cot or both to your booking.
Whilst the bathroom is large, the separate kitchen is compact but handsomely equipped with full gas hob, oven, fridge with freezer compartment and microwave so you can cook up all your favourite suppers in no time. We have worked around our historic features to ensure you have all your home comforts.
Ground floor: separate kitchen and lounge/dining area and 1 bathroom with slipper bath and separate shower cubicle
First floor: 1 double bedroom with king-size bed. On request a fold out Z bed for a young child and/or cot is available.
Wrynose Cottage accepts 1 well behaved dog, no puppies please. There is a small charge and some dog T&C’s to abide by.

The combination of the amazing location and accommodation provides the perfect ingredients for a superb holiday. The cottages are the perfect base to explore all of the treasures Eskdale and the surrounding area has to offer. Close by is the beautiful, deep, Wastwater Lake, England's deepest at 79 metres, and about 3 miles long. Also, near is the majestic Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England and one of England's most scenic hikes.

There are plenty of walks with lovely views of waterfalls, lakes, rockpools and you’ll spot lots of wildlife along the way. Also, a great place for cycling; Eskdale Cycle Trail is a wonderful way to explore the valley with many stops along the way which are perfect for a picnic. Bring your bikes or hire them locally.
