Faith & Steve moved to West Cumbria from Oxfordshire in 2006 with two young children and quickly became part of a lively valley community with involvement in the local schools, Hockey Club and Am Dram society to name but a few! The barns adjoining the farmhouse were in need of care and repurposing so in 2014 we started to renovate them to become the beautiful property that is now 1692 Wasdale! "1692" derives from the date stone which is still visible over our back door. The oldest barn dates back to this time. The west coast is definitely the quieter part of the Lake District, here you will find the great outdoors without the crowds. With mountains, lakes and a fantastic coastline there is something special about each season here. In the Wasdale Valley there’s access to Scafell Pike the highest mountain in England plus so many more here and in the adjacent valleys of Eskdale and Ennerdale. 1692 has direct access to the bridleway network. There are lovely lower level walks and Wastwater, England’s deepest lake nestles in our valley. Cyclists, fell runners, kite surfers, divers, dog owners, horse riders, walkers and climbers of all standards will find plenty to do here.
