Extremely comfortable stay at this lovely B&B. Large and comfortable rooms, and Tim's breakfast kept us going on a very long day over the hills. No TV or internet, but that was perfect for us to escape.

If you want to hike up Scafell Pike, Lingmell House is a good option as it is only 1 minute from the start. The rooms are modern, the bathrooms are shared but clean, breakfast is delicious! No wifi, but you can go to the bar next to Wasdale Head Inn, there you have wifi.

Great room for 2 nights while I climbed Scafell. The breakfasts were excellent. No tv but knackered anyway. No internet which was a shame as we could have done with some way of researching somewhere to eat. The hotel would have been our first choice but there was a wedding on.

We did the pike on the worst day ever and met a group of 3 peak fell runners as we came down. We were weary, drenched and to get in for a hot shower was fab. Room was spacious, shared bathrooms x 2 and a toilet. Comfy beds and a good nights sleep followed by a great breakfast ready for...

We stayed for 2 nights and used the B&B as a place to base ourselves for the climb to Scaffell Pike. The B&B itself is a lovely house, situated close to the Wasdale Head Inn and shop. The bedroom was very nice, comfortable, fairly big and came with a great view of the surrounding mountains. The bathrooms were clean and...

If you're looking for a nice relaxing break after a trek up Scafell with no TV or Internet, this is the place for you. It's lovely to switch off from the modern technology and just re-connect with nature and friends. The breakfast provided by the owner Tim was yummy!

Excellent weekend with the family here at Lingmell House. Rooms are big and very clean, breakfast was excellent. Walked to the top of Scafell Pike on Friday had a great day with good weather. Lingmell House is 2 minutes walk from Ritsons Bar (Wasdale Head Pub) good selection of beer's and Whisky to choose from after a long walk.....

For 35 quid, a spotlessly clean room and good beakfast before taking on Scafell etc, a very welcome place indeed. The owner clearly takes pride in the place. The only other thing I would have liked would be tea/coffee facilities in the room, but given the value of the room, where it is very rare to find such a high...
