Scaw Fell Cottage is beautifully located with wonderful views up the Wasdale Valley. Easy drive to a wide range of walks up Wasdale or Eskdale. Not far from the coast at Ravenglass. The nearby pub does food and a reasonable range of locally brewed beers. Within the cottage, the stairs are steep (as you would expect in a 2 up, 2 down) so care is neeRead moreded. Not much food storage space except in the fridge and on work surfaces. Having two 'loos' was useful (saved climbing upstairs). Hide
