Roz and Dave have been coming to Wasdale for most of their lives and grabbed the opportunity to purchase Goosepen Cottage in 2015.   Goosepen Cottage, and Hallflat Farm, is a very special place for us.

Roz has been coming to Hallflat Farm on a regular basis for almost 40 years – from annual childhood family holidays in the slightly lesser comfort of a caravan, to more recent times in Goosepen  - it has been a holiday cottage for over 20 years.   We both know the area very well and are keen hikers – we've done most of the local peaks and Dave has led many a group of walkers up the Wasdale fells over the years.   We look forward to welcoming you to this very special part of the Lake District and hope that you will love it as much as we do!


How to book a stay at Goosepen

You can reach us by email, phone or via our Facebook page.  Let us know your preferred dates and the number in your party.  We'll get back to you and let you know if the cottage is available, and let you know the cost.   

We ask for a non-refundable 25% deposit at time of booking, with the full balance payable 6 weeks prior to arrival.  For arrivals within 6 weeks of booking,  full payment is due at time of booking.  We also ask for a £100 security deposit – this is refundable on satisfactory vacation of the cottage and is as a safeguard against damages.

Payment can be made by cheque or bank transfer.  We'll give you full information about how to send payment to use when we confirm your booking.

The maximum number of occupants allowed is four.

What if I need to cancel?

If you do need to cancel your booking, please let us know in writing.  In the event of cancellation at least 6 weeks prior to arrival, the deposit will be forfeited but the balance will not be payable.  If you cancel your booking within 6 weeks of arrival, the full cost will be forfeited.  However, if we are able to re-let the cottage for the same period, we will refund any monies paid, less the deposit.

We recommend you have travel insurance to cover any cancellations.
