Tucked away down a quiet road in Eskdale Green you’ll find The Orchards, a spacious 2 storey apartment for 4 people and up to 2 lucky dogs. There’s a well equipped kitchen-diner and a large bright living room with a wood burning stove. Also on the ground floor is the modern family bathroom and spacious kingsize bedroom. The twin bedroom can be found on the first floor. As well as parking for 2 cars, there’s also a delightful sitting out area for making the most of the wonderful views over the surrounding fells and countryside.

Eskdale Green is a charming hamlet in the beautiful Eskdale Valley, a tranquil area that’s a haven for walkers. Walk from the door through the delightfully named Giggle Alley Wood to find a hidden Japanese garden and head to St Begas church in Eskdale Green to learn all about the history of the local area. Visit the Stanley Ghyll Force waterfall, a beautiful spot for a picnic lunch, before enjoying a ride on the famous La’al Ratty, the Eskdale and Ravenglass steam railway. Ravenglass is a beautiful roman port on the coast, and Drigg beach is also nearby if you want sand and sea!

There are plenty of opportunities for longer days out on the fell tops too. Serious hikers can tackle Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain, or head up Muncaster Fell for stunning views of the valley. Visit remote Devoke Water or head to the neighbouring valley of Wasdale for a walk by Wastwater, the deepest of all The Lakes. You’ll be in need of some refreshments after all that exercise! There are a great selection of traditional pubs in Eskdale to enjoy a refreshing drink and a hearty meal after a day out exploring.
