Welcome to the Wasdale Head Inn

Covid-19 update
We are working hard to install screens, sanitisers, additional outside seating and other safety measures so that we can open safely as soon as we are allowed to.

We and all our neighbours look forward to welcoming you back as soon as it is safe, but until we are open there are NO facilities for visitors at Wasdale Head, so please stay away.

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.
