General

  • Farm park overlooking Scafell Pike on the fringes of the western fells
  • A 10-minute drive from Wast Water lake and 15 from Seascale beach
  • Yurts come with kitchenettes, woodburning stoves and private bathrooms

Get over to Wasdale Yurt Holiday for a break under canvas at Rainors Farm on the fringes of a western Lake District valley yet close to the coast. This rural site with 200 breeding sheep – plus a couple of goats, a few chickens and a pack of dogs – is in the countryside, a 15-minute drive from Seascale’s six-mile-long stretch of sand.

The park is well-located for explores of the western Lake District, whether while walking, cycling or driving. It overlooks Scafell Peak – the highest point in England – and is 10 minutes from Wast Water, the country’s deepest lake.

Stays here before and after adventures are in Rainors Farm’s 18-foot yurts. They sleep up to five people and are equipped with electricity, woodburning stoves, single-ring gas camping stoves (gas provided), mini fridges, and tea and coffee. Private toilet and heated shower facilities are nearby.

Up for organised escapades? Go dog sledding and pony trekking with Horse and Husky (half an hour) or try canyoning, canoeing, rock climbing, archery, abseiling, raft building, mountain biking and stand-up paddleboarding at West Lakes Adventure (25 minutes).

    Loved the yurt! Comfortable and secluded with just enough privacy and home comforts. So pleasant being away from the noises and sounds of the city and nice to be in an area with not so many tourists that was so beautiful. Me and my husband fell asleep watching stars through the clear roof with the fire crackling.

    The Yurt was absolutely gorgeous! The decor inside was lovely and the views were amazing! Waking up, opening both doors and just looking out at the mountain range. Clare was an excellent host, greeted us on arrival and then left us to our own devices. The toilet/shower block was in good condition.
