The Setting:

John Ruskin wrote of Eskdale as “The Gateway to Paradise” whilst Alfred Wainwright, the famous Lakeland author, described Eskdale as “A perfect Arcadia in the hills – the finest of all valleys.”

Our 400 year old Grade II Listed Elizabethan cottages are romantically set in the delightful village of Boot, in the glorious Eskdale Valley, beside a quaint 17th Century packhorse bridge over the tumbling Whillan Beck. All cottages are charming, full of character, cosy and warm with WiFi, satellite TV, Ipod docks, books, games and films. There are romantic cottages for 2, ideal for honeymoons, and larger cottages for families and groups, sleeping up to 9. Some are suitable for those with limited mobility or young children. We have two beautiful walled gardens and a lovely riverside paddock for picnics and barbecues.

Village life and great food:

Two pubs 50 and 150 yards away serving great food. Enjoy a homemade shortcrust pastry beef and ale pie and a pint of Cumbrian real ale after a long day on the fells! Sample delicious Lakeland ice creams from the village shop or stroll to the mill, arts and crafts gallery and church. A choice of welcome hampers is available including Cumberland sausages from the Queen’s appointed supplier. Plus chocolates, flowers and champagne for special occasions.

The finest walks in the Lake District:

Get ‘far from the madding crowd’ and enjoy not using your car all week in this tranquil corner of the Lakes. From the cottage door, you can roam the fells and hike up England’s highest mountains. For those looking for something a little more relaxing, there are countless gentle walks beside rivers, through woods and meadows, often passing one of the Valley’s five cosy inns for ‘refreshments’ along the way.

Scafell from the South. The best route up this grand 3,000 foot mountain

Discover the Upper Esk. A hidden valley opens up in the midst of the highest Lakeland fells

Craggy Frolics over Eskdale. Simply great fun discovering the nooks and crannies

Eel Tarn from Boot. A pretty, hidden tarn only a short walk from Boot.
