Very well equipped and comfortable house with excellent views. A stone’s throw from Eskdale Green ‘Ratty’ station, and with great walks for all ages from the house we didn't use the car at all. Can’t wait to return!

Hello Janet, Thank you for your lovely review. It's a gem of a cottage isn't it? You picked the perfect location for getting out and about on some great walks! I hope you had the opportunity to experience the fabulous La'al Ratty - Choo-Choo!!! Here's to the next Lakes adventure - hope to see you again very soon.

Lovely house in beautiful location,felt very much like a home rather than a holiday let. Extremely well equipped and comfortable although could do with new manmade fibre pillows rather than the feather ones. Underfloor heating downstairs a nice touch. Let down by lack of attention to detail on cleanliness but this did not in any way spoil our holiday. Numerous walks from the door,no need to use the car if you don't want to. Fantastic garden for dogs, all fenced with sheep netting so we were able to let our dog run without the worry of him getting out. A beautiful and quieter part of the Lake District.

HI Gillian, very many thanks for taking the time to leave your comments, I'm delighted to hear you had such a great time. It's always a relief when you can let the dog out without worrying, isn't it? I can promise you a warm welcome, whenever your return!

Absolutely fantastic house in an unforgettably gorgeous location. The views, the comfy living room, pleasant kitchen and sweet bedrooms are all wonderful. As mother and daughter traveling together, we felt safe, cozy and very happy. We rode on Ratty every day to and from our walks. Made the short stroll up to the Eskdale Stores for supplies. Ate at Bower House frequently. We loved staying at Banklands and it was very hard to leave! It doesn’t get much better than Banklands!

Hi Ellen, gosh, that sounds absolutely idyllic! I am beyond thrilled to hear that you had such a fantastic time! La'al Ratty every day - what a treat! I hope you both have lots of wonderful memories to treasure.
