  • Picture perfect cottage for six guests, set in the scenic Eskdale Valley
  • Ideal for exploring the western Lakes, walking beside Wast Water and climbing Scafell Pike
  • Close to the River Esk, with opportunities for fishing, canoeing and even swimming
Property code: SZ300

A gorgeous, renovated, three-bedroom cottage, set in the quiet hamlet of Boot, and well placed for long valley walks, steam train journeys to the coast and days out to Ambleside.

The hamlet of Boot nestles in the Eskdale valley, one of the more tranquil of the Lake District. This holiday cottage is a rare find, a true country residence superbly decorated throughout, offering self-catering accommodation for five to six people with great views of the surrounding mountains. This cottage has been awarded four stars and a gold award from Visit England.

Eskdale is a wonderful starting point for hundreds of walks, either on the fells or the banks of the River Esk, which flows from Scafell at the top of the valley down to the estuary at Ravenglass, an old fishing village complete with a ruined Roman bath house! The river has natural pools for swimming and is a popular place for canoeing and for fishing. In the Eskdale valley is an 18-hole golf course and private salmon fishing river. The famous Ravenglass and Eskdale Miniature Railway runs along the valley, its steam trains leisurely making the 7-mile journey down to the sea.

There are five pubs in the valley - one is almost opposite the cottage, whilst another is a few minutes' walk away. All welcome children and serve real ales and a wide choice of good food. Eskdale village shop, Eskdale Stores, sells a comprehensive range of goods, including groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables, food to go, alcohol and newspapers. A public payphone is located a couple of minutes' walk away, and there is limited reception for mobile phones at the cottage.

At the property, you will be greeted with a welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk and biscuits.

The kitchen is fully equipped with electric oven and gas hob, microwave, dishwasher and plenty of storage space. In the adjoining utility room is a fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. The kitchen also has dining for six.

The sitting room is light and comfy with French windows leading to the enclosed garden. There is an open fire (the first basket of logs is provided), Sky TV (with documentaries, lifestyle and culture), DVD and video player. One of the walls is lined with books which you are welcome to borrow during your holiday. There is also Wi-Fi internet access throughout the house.

The main bathroom is downstairs and has a bath with shower over.

Upstairs are three bedrooms. The main double has an en-suite bathroom. The second double has a 3/4 bed and the third room is a twin.

Outside are great views of the surrounding Lakeland fells, hundreds of walks right from the front door and a south-facing garden with table and chairs.

This is our 2nd stay in this wonderful cottage, which is in a great location opposite the Brook House Inn, with 2 other pubs close by. The cottage is well equiped; spacious; and has a great kitchen for self-catering cooks like us! There is a lot of walking from the doorstep, with both easy trails and also more technical hikes. The trail to RavenglaRead moress is worth doing to have a few pints and catch the train back! We have stopped in a lot of Lake District cottages and this is one of the best! Hide

A perfect little getaway cottage with every convenience, including a pub which sold delicious food directly across the road! The cottage itself was cosy and beautifully decorated for our Christmas visit and reminded us of Kate Winslet's cottage in the film, The Holiday. Even though it rained every day during our visit, the cottage had everything weRead more needed including games and books, and all we had to add was food and drink. Hide

Cosy cottage in an excellent location for walking and for pubs! The only downside is that the fridge & freezer is small for a cottage of this size. However, we enjoyed our stay and will likely rebook!

Lane End is an ideally situated, lovely cottage. The living room and kitchen are both spacious enough and well equipped, for a group of 5. The garden is lovely, the perfect spot to watch the sun set over the valley. We didnt want for anything while we were there. The cottage is walking distance to long and short walks. Sca Fell is accessible on fooRead moret from the cottage. I highly recommend the Boot Inn, book ahead for evening meals! Hide

This was second year running staying here & it didnt disappoint. The cottage itself is very comfortable & cosy with most everything you need. Its nicely situated next to the Brook Inn, which Id highly recommend for a meal or two.

My partner and I had a perfect break in this cottage, the sun shone every day and the surrounding peaceful countryside has so many beautiful walks and things to see that we never left the valley during our stay. The cottage is a little gem with tasteful furnishings, lovely views and near to several pubs supplying excellent food. We hope to return.
