Lots of nice touches in this cottage. The garden area is excellent with a lovely bench and picnic table South facing looking over the valley. Lots of supplies for the log fire in the lounge and a good heating system. The shower, while electric, has a good flow and lots of space. There is an additional snug which gives space if there are 6 in the cottage. The owners are responsive and have put together a fantastic folder of information on things to do in the area including hand drawn walks and maps.

2 fridges and a slimline chest freezer make for loads of space but if you need any more specialised kitchen equipment you need to bring it yourself - including decent knives (as is always the case in self catering!).

The location is second to none - 25 mins from Wasdale, Wrynose pass, lots of nice walks from the door, Eskdale (for a great approach to Scafell area, climbing and scrambling), loads of good pubs in the area (Woolpack for pizza, Bower House Inn does great food).

The driveway is very narrow up a steep short hill - not suitable for a van - but there is parking in Eskdale. The Eskdale village store is excellent and only 2 mins walk up the road.

Hi Peter, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay, it's a lovely place for a relaxing break isn't it? The locaton is stunning, I'm glad you enjoyed exploring. It's always a bonus having some good pubs nearby too!

Fantastic location with views over the valley and hills. Great village shop with all basic supplies.
Very comfortable beds, big rooms. Lovely open fire.
Walks from cottage up to Whin Rigg with amazing views. Easy walk to pub. Great for star gazing.
Just perfect.
