Eskdale – The Woolpack Inn

Situated at the foot of the steepest road in England (the formidable Hardknott Pass). A stone’s throw from the deepest lake in England (Wastwater, at 258ft) and the jumping off point to climb England’s highest mountain (Scafell Pike, 978m). A more adventurous and wild location in the heart of the Western Lake District you will be hard pressed to find. Stunning views from the door of the yurts lead up the valley rising up to the glorious mountains beyond. After a day of exploration and adventure, the Wool Pack Inn is right next door serving fine local ales, wood fired pizzas and array of delicious dishes to choose from.

Scandinavian wood fired hot tub available to book with all of the Yurts

Also available is exclusive use of a Scandinavian wood fired hot tub with your stay. At 1.8m diameter it is ideal for romantic couples or friends looking for that little bit extra luxury after a hard day out in the mountains.

Imagine yourself soaking away the hustle and bustle of everyday life,  watching the steam gently swirling and rising up into the night air. A better way to spend an evening, I doubt you will find. Click HERE for more information on our hot tubs.

Offering a superb base for exploring the quieter and wilder Western Lake District the Eskdale site really does have lots to offer. The fabulous West Lakes adventure is located next door and offers a variety of outdoor activities for all. Canoe the River Esk or paddle board on Wastwater. Book an exhilarating gorge scramble up the Esk Gorge, hire a bike and cycle up the Hardknott Pass (if you dare!) or go wild swimming in one of the many swimming holes in the River Esk. So much to see and do without ever leaving the valley. We guarantee it will leave you wanting more! See our THINGS TO DO page for more information and booking.
