Wasdale in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... is home to the giant of Lakeland, Scafell Pike (although you cannot see it from here) and the rest of the Scafell range. There are other famous peaks around wasdale to including Great Gable with its distinctive pudding basin peak and Yewbarrow above others. To get here you drive down the obligatory winding lanes that give no clue to the view that is going to open up before your eyes. When you first lay eyes on the open expanse of Wastwater your breath is taken away by the sheer natural grandeur before you.
