Snow in Eskdale

Online with bookings


Hooray. We’ve now gone fully live with our online bookings - we would like to thank Jeff from Hydrant for making it all possible (and for being so patient with us). Being techno-dinosaurs we’re still very happy for you to call and make your booking but we’re very excited about this next step and I hope you will find it useful. If you have any feedback about the process, or tips for improvement, then just let us know.

What an amazing spell of weather we’re having at the moment. High pressure sitting over us has brought crisp, clear days and frosty nights.

Well, what a week we've just had. Crisp mornings and starry nights. Beautiful. My mother-in-law came up from the Midlands to visit and was amazed with the brightness of the stars here.
