Little Christcliff is an absolutely charming terraced cottage for up to five people in the glorious setting of the Eskdale Valley. One of a small group of distinct houses set back from the road it boasts three well-appointed bedrooms, bags of period detail, stunning views and wonderful outside space. All this within an easy walk of a much-loved Lakeland pub! Little Christcliff also welcomes up to two well behaved pooches.

The cottage lies near the head of this tranquil valley opening up a fabulous array of walking from the door. The well prepared and fit walkers among you can take on the mighty peaks of Scafell and Scafell Pike while there is plenty of gentler rambling should you prefer. This end of the Eskdale Valley boasts three excellent pubs, tumbling waterfalls, crystal clear wild-swimming pools, and a patchwork of fields mostly inhabited by hardy Herdwick sheep. Cyclists are exceptionally well catered for with a great choice of off-road trails for those keen to get muddy and an iconic mountain pass just a stone's throw away for the road cyclists. If you've made it up Hardknott Pass, why not explore the Roman fort that is stunningly situated on the fellside?

Boot village is just a short from the house where you'll find Dalegarth Station, the terminus of the Ravenglass and Eskdale Steam Railway. A trip to Ravenglass on this narrow-gauge heritage line is an absolute must for railway children of all ages. While you're down at the coast why not explore the history of the area at the Railway Museum or at the nearby Roman Bathhouse? For a great family day out Muncaster Castle is hard to beat with its colourful history, gorgeous grounds and birds of prey. In all, this area is magical for families, outdoor adventurers and those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of 21st Century life. However you choose to spend your visit, Little Christcliff makes a delightful base from which to explore.
