The Old Post Office
This delightful holiday cottage is situated opposite the village shop in Eskdale, one of the Lake District’s most tranquil valleys. The Old Post Office is a cosy cottage, providing comfortable self catering accommodation for up to three 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. The Green station is just ten minutes walk from The Old Post Office.
There are five Pubs in the valley (the Bower House Inn is a ten minute walk away), all welcoming children and serving real ales and a wide choice of good food. The village shop is opposite 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.
