The Wasdale Head, in the heart of the Western Lakes, is famed as the birthplace of British rock climbing. No wonder. It's surrounded by the tallest peaks in England and serves as a brilliant base for mountaineering as well as less-strenuous walking trips. There are 12 rooms, including a family suite and a ground-floor double with a four-poster bed, plus several self-catering apartments for longer stays. The dining room specializes in Herdwick mutton and lamb, and if you fancy a pint, they brew their own beer under the label Great Gable Brewing Company.
