- Although the house is a bit dated, it is nevertheless cosy and lovely to come home to after a day out. I think the plumbing needs an overall - after having the water on for a couple of hours, the shower in the ensuite went cold within a minute! Some of the radiators upstairs sound like they are going to explode as the heating comes on, and the one in the front bedroom didn't warm up at all. That said, we were cosy and warm. The bedrooms are a great size, as are the lounge and kitchen. Highly recommend the Brooke House Inn 150metres away, great food and friendly staff. The house is in a fabulous location, with great views and so peaceful. Eskdale is a beautiful area, away from the hustle and bustle of the more popular areas of the Lakes, which are accessible within about one and a half hour drive away. Wasdale is unmissable, and only a short drive from Boot. I would definitely stay at this property again.

Hi Susan, thank you for your review. I'm so pleased you had such a great time at 1 Orange Hill. It's a real home from home isn't it? And the location is stunning!
Thanks for letting me know about the plumbing, I've passed this on to the owner, I hope it didn't cause you too many problems during your stay.
Come back again soon, you can be sure of a warm welcome.
