A warm welcome to Rigg Green, a charming and characterful semi-detached cottage in delightful Eskdale Green. With a wealth of period features, a large garden, glorious views and a gorgeous cosy atmosphere it makes a wonderful base for a break in this charming valley. The cottage sleeps five people in three comfortable bedrooms, one of which offers flexible accommodation being either superking-size room or a twin depending on your party's needs. The interior has some wonderful period elements with an open fire, a further wood-burning stove, large leaded windows set into deep sandstone walls and original parquet flooring. Rigg Green commands a wonderful position at the mouth of the secluded Miterdale Valley while being within walking distance of a great local pub, the village shop and even a station for a narrow gauge steam railway.

Eskdale is a gem of a valley, a world away from the hustle and bustle of 21st Century life. It has access to the some of the highest peaks in the Lake District for challenging fell walking as well as gentler low level potters. Why not pack a picnic and wander up to Boot via the Eskdale Trail? This lovely riverside amble offers plenty of paddling and wild swimming spots. The cycling in the area is fantastic with easy trails and more demanding bridleways alongside some of the most iconic road cycling in the country. As well as the fun to be had in the great outdoors, Eskdale is also blessed with five great pubs for enjoying a home-cooked meal and a local real ale. A trip on the Ravenglass and Eskdale Steam Railway is an absolute must. This wonderful narrow gauge railway makes a leisurely trip from the coast at Ravenglass to the foot of the fells at Boot. At Rigg Green you are just a stone's throw from Irton Road Station where you can hail the train in either direction.

Further afield there's plenty of interest too. Muncaster Castle makes a fantastic day out for all ages. The castle itself is a historic gem with centuries of history, peppered with ghostly tales, to explore. While the gardens make a wonderful playground for children, gardeners and bird watchers alike. Ravenglass, the only coastal village in the Lake District National Park, is a timeless treat with a well preserved Roman Bathhouse and Railway Museum. So if you would like to escape the hustle and bustle of 21st century lifein a  delightful traditional cottage nestled in a charming village, Rigg Green could be just the place for you.
