Eskdale is a tranquil valley that is relatively untouched by modern development. The valley has a peaceful air and beautiful scenery as far as the eye can see. One of the best ways to see the valley is by the Ravenglass and Eskdale railway known affectionately as La'al Ratty. The railway operates between Dalegarth at Boot and Ravenglass on the coast. The 7 mile route passes through some of the most beautiful scenery in the valley and has several stops for you to hop off and enjoy a walk.
There are five pubs in the valley all of which are family friendly and serve good menus and local ales. Eskdale is the perfect location for a peaceful Lake District holiday with walks for all abilities.
