Located in the small traditional hamlet of Nether Wasdale The Screes conforms towards more of an 'Inn' rather than a Hotel, this more informal approach has allowed for us to create a more relaxed and friendlier atmosphere. Traditional with a contemporary twist, please don't confuse us for a 'Luxury get away in the lakes.' Amongst the backdrop of the Wasdale Valley we are an ideal base to go and explore the more uncommercialised side of the Lake District!
With a wood burning fire and candlelit tables The Screes offers a relaxing atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of the daily grind, whether your having a few drinks, a bite to eat or even grabbing a board game! were a place where you can sit back and take it all in. Good drinks, scrummy food and with a playlist which covers Bowie to The Beatles, The Kinks to Chuck Berry hopefully our background music isn't to shabby either!
Food & Sleep
Our small but varied menu offers up a good choice of pub classics to european dishes, all homemade, plentiful and good honest cooking! As for our rooms they come in many shapes and sizes so its always best to check before you book, we can assure you though they'll be clean and comfy!
It is vitally important that all guests understand that here at The Screes we prefer the more relaxed nature of an Inn / Hostel, rather than a more formal hotel environment. No airs and graces here just an honest lakes inn, set in a stunning location
