The Screes Inn is run by Mark and his small but dedicated team, who are looking forward to welcoming you to our cosy inn in the western Lake District.
The Screes Inn is a traditional village local pub and is a great base for walking and climbing. Based in the small hamlet village of Nether Wasdale in the beautiful Wasdale valley we are a stone's throw away from 'Britain's Favourite View', the deepest lake in England - Wast Water - and the highest peak in England - Scafell Pike.
The inn itself has a large comfortable bar area with a traditional open fire which roars away during the colder months. We offer a good choice of home-cooked food, real ales from Robinson's Brewery and Hawkshead Brewery and a fine selection of malt whiskeys.
A sauna and Jacuzzi is located in the main building of the pub it is free of charge for guests staying in our static caravan and for guests camping with us the charge for use is £5 per person per hour.
We cater for couples, climbers, walkers and we are dog friendly.
There is free wifi available throughout The Screes Inn.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
