Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed 3 nights and would have happily stayed for longer! Really is a "boutique/bespoke" B and B - every single aspect has been so carefully thought of with guest comfort at the heart of everything and we very much appreciated this. We hope to return before not too long. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

My wife and I have just returned from a wonderful night's stay at 1692 Wasdale. We only stayed a night, but it was enough to make us say we we certainly be back as soon as we can. Can't speak highly enough of Steve - absolutely lovely man. So welcoming, accommodating, and really informative about the local area. The breakfast was one of the best we've ever had in a hotel/b&b - all locally sourced ingredients, cooked fresh while you wait, and piping hot when served. The room was to die for. Really luxurious with everything you'd need and more. It was a surprise night away for my wife's birthday - thank you to all staff for making me very popular; we WILL be back again!

this was my first visit to the lake district and it is safe to say me and my partner were not disappointed. As a whole the lakes are beautiful and worth visiting alone but 1692 wasdale really made this trip perfect. It is a family owned and run business with very kind and attentive staff that aren't afraid to go that extra mile. I opt for the 'romantic package' including a bottle of prosecco, chocolate hearts, a bunch of flowers, chocolate strawberries and rose petals, which were beautifully displayed and didnt disappoint! the room we stayed in, 'the stone suite' was very clean and up-to-date with underfloor heating, electric blinds and overall a very modern touch. The hot tub was very clean and we were allocated a lengthy 2 hour slot which was more than enough time to relax. the honesty bar is also very well stocked and reasonably priced with something for everyone's taste. Not to mention, the breakfast. We had their breakfast both days we stayed and there was not a single thing to fault, well presented, tasty and filling with many options from continental to a full english. I would love to return in the future for another visit if i am within the area!

We just returned from the most perfect stay at 1692 Wasdale. We can not recommend this place enough - the rooms were beautiful, the breakfast was delicious, the hot tub was amazing! The additional touches really did make our weekend extra special - the freshly made cake was delicious! The staff were so friendly and helpful - they gave us some brilliant tips on the best walks and places to eat. Thank you to everyone at 1692 Wasdale for making our stay so wonderful - we hope to come back soon!

Another amazing stay! Such a comfy bed and lots of special touches. The homemade cake and shortbread is delicious, and Faith makes the BEST scrambled eggs! The toiletries are also lovely and made by a sustainable local company. We'll definitely be back again!

What an absolute treat, I can only add to what everyone else is reporting. The welcome was warm, the property beautifully appointed and the rooms comfortable, stylish and immaculate. I had a wonderful weekend and felt really spoiled. Breakfast was outstanding - in fact every little detail was just so well-judged. I can't wait to get the opportunity to book again.

The accommodation exceeded our expectations, the room was fantastic, very spacious and completely spotless. We were greeted by the host who was warm and welcoming, along with a great local knowledge of the area. The breakfast had a superb choice and was expertly cooked and presented, with locally sourced produce. I have stayed in a number of 5 star hotels and our room was right up there at that level. The overall stay was superb, the owners obviously have very high standards and it is obvious in the detail. A bonus was the hot tub, set in lovely scenic surroundings. We will definitely be booking again, and thoroughly recommend 1692 Wasdale to those seeking a special experience.

A beautiful base for exploring the west Lake District. Perfectly pristine bed, lovely ethically locally sourced toiletries. Amazingly helpful and informative staff who helped make our plans for trip out daily. Gorgeous interior design with cute luxury bath tub upstairs on mezzanine to look at the stars through the sky light. Very spacious, fresh feeling and trendy. Hot tub working well and available with robes and flip flops included. Great breakfast choice as well as breakfast buffet. They really catered for my dairy free needs well and breakfast set us up for the day. Easy parking. Great well stocked honesty bar. Easy to find. Llamas amd sunsets to be seen for the window and outdoor terrace. We will definitely be coming back here to stay.
