We have implemented other safety measures including taking orders from customers at their tables both indoors and outside, a one way system indoors and access to both inside and outside toilets.

Residents - all rooms and apartments are open, with enhanced cleaning routines before and after every stay.

Camping - the campsite is open as usual

We and all our neighbours look forward to welcoming you back. If you plan to come indoors then you may wish to bring a face mask or other suitable covering to protect yourself and others.

Welcome to the world-famous Wasdale Head Inn - the birthplace of climbing - dramatically surrounded by England's tallest mountains, making it the finest base for walking and climbing.


The Inn is situated at the head of remote and unspoiled Wasdale, and if you are seeking the superlative this is where you will find it. England's highest mountain, deepest lake, smallest Church, and the original world's biggest liar can all be found in this tranquil corner of the Lake District.

The Inn is managed by Gillian Race on behalf of the owners, Nigel and Lesley Burton.
