Rose Cottage (Eskdale)
Rose holiday cottage is situated in the centre of Eskdale village, with stunning views of the Eskdale valley, one of the most tranquil parts of the Lake District. The cottage itself is in beautiful order throughout, offering comfortable accommodation for up to 6 people.
Eskdale is a wonderful starting point for hundreds of walks, either on the fells or along the banks of the River Esk, which flows from Scafell at the top of the valley down to the estuary at Ravenglass, an old fishing village complete with a ruined Roman bath-house. The river has natural pools for swimming and is a popular place for canoeing and fishing.
The famous Ravenglass & Eskdale Miniature Railway runs along the valley, its steam trains making the leisurely seven-mile journey down to the sea. - Irton Road station is just five mins walk from Rose Cottage. There are five pubs in the valley (The Bower House inn just a ten minute walk away), all welcoming children and serving real ales and a wide choice of good food.
The village shop is just a five minute walk away and sells a comprehensive range of goods, including groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables, food to go, alcohol and newspapers. There is some reception for mobile phones on the Orange network.
Free golf at the stunning Eskdale Golf Course is included in your stay courtesy of the cottage owners between April and October. Please take the membership card in the cottage with you to prove you are guests of Rose Cottage. You may also hire clubs at £10 per round.
