Bankside is a lovely cottage with beautiful gardens and fantastic views of the Lakeland fells. Situated in a prime location in the village of Eskdale, the self catering holiday cottage offers hundreds of walks straight from its front door. The house has retained many original features and comfortably sleeps 7 people.
Eskdale is perfectly situated for exploring the surrounding mountains, rivers and lakes. Whether it be mountainous walks up along the top of the Wasdale Screes and over Scafell and Scafell Pike (the Highest mountains in the Lake District) or gentle strolls along the valley bottom or paddling and picnicking in the River Esk, all are easily reached on foot from the village.
Eskdale Green has a village shop selling a good range of essentials – you can get the papers and fresh milk for your coffee and then sit out in the cottage garden and soak up the sun, listen to the birds and enjoy the views.
There are two pubs with walking distance of the cottage, The King George IV and the Bower House Inn – both serving good food and excellent local ales.
It’s a five minute walk to the station on the Ravenglass and Eskdale Miniature Railway and fifteen minutes drive out to Muncaster Castle on the coast (or a lovely walk along Muncaster Fell and then you can catch the La’al Ratty home).
