Hollin How is a traditional farmhouse steeped in history and 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 on 2 sofa beds, it's absolutely bursting with character. As if that's not enough, there are stunning views over the valley to the fells beyond! This really is the perfect property for family get-togethers or for two families wishing to holiday together. 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, gorgeous formal garden areas wrap around the house, providing ever-changing year-round colour. A small path leads to a large area of open woodland with winding paths, a babbling stream from a large pond, and wildlife in abundance. It's a simply magical place.

The La'al Ratty miniature steam train passes by 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. Eskdale also offers a variety of scenic lower-level walks through the valleys and over the low fells. The coastal town of Ravenglass and Muncaster Castle can be reached by rail or road.

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.
