Hollin How is one of our NEW COTTAGES!
Hollin How is a traditional farmhouse steeped in history and full of character, set in large grounds in an amazing location in the heart of the Eskdale valley. Comfortably sleeping up to 14 people in 5 beautifully crafted bedrooms and 2 sofa beds. With stunning views over the valley to the fells beyond, it is a perfect property for family get togethers or two families wishing to holiday together. One of the bedrooms is en-suite and there are also two stylish family bathrooms. Downstairs the large kitchen with separate dining area is ideal for sociable mealtimes and there is ample room to spread out and relax in one of the living areas. The living room has an open fire and there are also two snugs to hide away in. The cottage retains lots of original features and has been restored to an exceptional standard to enhance and compliment these whilst slotting in plenty of mod cons to make this a welcoming and cosy place to stay.
Outside the more formal garden areas wrap around the house with drifts of bulbs in spring and beautiful herbaceous borders in summer, before the surrounding woodlands take over with autumn colour - this really is a garden to spend time in and enjoy. There is a south-east facing patio and a large lawn in front of the house perfect for long summer days enjoying the beautiful views. Behind the house a small path leads to a large area of open woodland with paths winding through it to explore, the stream babbling down the hill issues from a large pond, take time to watch the wildlife and feel ordinary life slip away as the magic of this wonderful spot takes over.
La'al Ratty passes by at the bottom of the garden and the station is only a short walk away, as is the nearest pub, The King George IV, which serves food as well as offering local real ales. Hollin How offers easy access to Wasdale and some of the highest and most popular of the Lakeland Fells, however Eskdale also offers a variety of lower level walks through the valleys and over the lower fells all through lovely scenery. The coastal town of Ravenglass offers a taste of the Cumbrian coast and can be easily reached by road or on the railway; while you are there visit Muncaster Castle with the castle itself, extensive gardens and a bird of prey display there is something for everyone. Much of the western Lake District is quiet and there is always something new to discover, or you could quite easily spend a week in the environs of Hollin How and revel in the tranquillity.
