Underhow is a contemporary cottage with beautiful views of the Eskdale Valley. Large picture windows in many of the rooms take advantage of the stunning surroundings. There is a ground floor bedroom and bathroom, making Underhow ideal for mixed family groups.
Underhow was originaly built for Douglas Ferreira, the General Manager of the Ravenglass to Eskdale Railway. You can enjoy the refurbished comfort of his cottage and watch the engines of the narrow gauge La'al Ratty railway pass by - look out for the one named after him!
This up-to-date cottage is situated next to Eskdale Green station where you can hop on board to ride to the head of the valley (the foot of Scafell) or down to the coast. The fields and woodlands around the cottage attract a wealth of wildlife including buzzards, herons, kites, red squirrels and much more. Eskdale is a superb 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.
There are five pubs in the valley, the nearest being the King George IV, just 300m down the road. Children are welcome and it serves real ales and a wide choice of good food. The village shop is close by 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.
Underhow is available for a New Year visit for 7 nights from the 27th of December for £1,050. Please call the office on 017687 80571 to book this date.
