  • Description

    Website of the Wasdale Head Inn, including details of the bar, resturant, accomodation and local amenities. The "About" section of the Website includes a history of the Inn: "....Will Ritson (b 1808) - huntsman, wrestler, farmer, fellsman, guide, raconteur, was the first and is still the most famous landlord of the hotel, renowned as "The World's Biggest Liar". Ritson retired in 1879 to be succeeded by Dan Tyson. More recently Edwin and Carolyn Hammond acquired the hotel in the 1970s and transformed it from near dereliction into a hotel with more modern facilities whilst preserving the essential character and ethos of the home of British climbing. Since 2000 the hotel has been owned by Nigel and Lesley Burton who are committed to maintaining the Wasdale spirit for future generations....."
