We stayed at the Wrynose cottage for 2 nights in July 2017.
Pros: Great get away. They were very kind to send shirts that I left behind by mail. Great communication. Wonderful hiking from the house. Charming village (or old houses) with 2 traditional British restaurants just minutes away. A quick drive will get you to breathtaking lakes nearby. Nice backyard to have lunch outside.
Cons: Very tiny living room, small kitchen and and a cramped bedroom upstairs. Hardly a place to move around with the suitcases. Became a little claustrophobic. They said there was wifi but the signal was so weak we had to walk outside 20 yards away to the washing machine room where the wifi router was. The other occupants of the adjacent cottages were also doing the same. Rather expensive for what you get. Unlikely to return.
Have just returned from a weekend break at Wrynose Cottage. The cottage was spotlessly clean, warm and inviting. With great walks on the doorstep we didn't move the car until the day we left. The Boot Inn and Brook House Hotel are within an easy walk and both offer great food, beers and hospitality. The wifi at the cottage was a great bonus as mobile reception is non-existent. All dealings with Select Cottages have been very prompt and helpful. We also met the couple who look after the cottages on site and they were really great. Would highly recommend and would definitely return.
The cottage was amazing as were the views, just what I was looking for, will defintaly be booking again.
Great little place located in a terrace that includes the other cottages let by the same owner. Lovely setting, only 50yards from the Boot Inn and another pub only two mins further.
The cottage is very well equipped with a lovely stand-alone bath and separate shower, small but we'll set out kitchen and a nice room upstairs.
Parking at the cottages is tight, but no problem.
The owner is very helpful - an item we left was posted to us as soon as we asked them to have a look for it.
We used the cottage as a base for a birthday weekend away and to cycle the Wrynose and Hardknott passes, for which it was perfect.
We booked this cottage last summer to explore the Lake District. Boot is a great location and we were able to walk direct from the cottage on a number of walks in different directions. The pub (which is literally 'two doors down' the road) serves good food and is a lovely local pub to grab a drink at the end of your walk. There is also plenty to see around Boot with Eskdale Mill next door, St Catherine's Church, Stanley Ghyll Force and Hard Knot Pass / Fort not too far. The Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway is great - we spent the day in Ravenglass. Scafell Pike is also very close.
The cottage itself was lovely - fine for 2 people. Cosy living room with table for dining - and kitchen with everything you need. Parking was tight (luckily I have a small car!) but enough spaces for all the cottages. There is a garden behind the cottages with BBQ facilities and a stream running down the bottom, with great views of the hills above you.
