The Bower House Apartment is an ideal base for four people to enjoy everything that the beautiful valley of Eskdale has to offer. It is situated in the grounds of the Bower House Inn, a 17th century coaching inn which is just bursting with character. The apartment itself is warm, modern, comfortably furnished with subtle decor and benefitting from a shared garden.
It’s a perfect starting point for a family or small group hoping to make the most of this lovely spot. The Eskdale Valley is one of the most unspoilt areas in the National Park, from here you can make the most of some wonderful walking and cycling opportunities, take a wonderful narrow gauge steam engine to the nearby coast or just relax and enjoy the wonderful views in the valley that Wainwright described as “One of Lakeland’s loveliest”. It’s a place of hidden treasures with crystal clear rivers, dramatic waterfalls and even a Japanese garden lovingly restored from its Victorian heyday.
If you are feeling sociable you can benefit from the pub’s beautiful beer garden which has a children’s playground, a stream running through and a huge lawn where kids can cartwheel about to their heart’s content. The garden even overlooks the village cricket ground and in the summer months you can enjoy watching a game with a stunning fellside backdrop while perhaps indulging in a glass of wine or one of the excellent real ales on offer. It’s an English countryside idyll which you’ll be able to visit time and time again.
