Beautiful cottage with a home from home feeling. Arrived late at night but everything was easy to find and we soon settled in with a cosy feeling living area and bedrooms. There was tea and coffee and biscuits laid out in kitchen and milk in fridge which was a nice touch. We travelled with grown up children and 2 grandchildren...

Thank you for your lovely review. It sounds like you thoroughly explored our special part of the Lakes and we are delighted that you found the cottage comfortable and homely.

A lovely cottage; worked very well for a group of 8 friends. 25m from the pub and not much further from walking straight out into the National Park. Great walks nearby and good location for Scafell Pike and Wastwater too.

Spacious,well provided for accommodation. Very snug. Great surroundings. Loved Boot. Ate two nights at Boot Inn. Loved by all the family. Great walk to Scafell. Esk Trail really only suited to serious mountain bikes. The lanes were quiet enough to cycle on. Got the train back from Ravenglass with the bikes. Memorable. We shall return.

About the neighbourhood
Bridge End Farm Cottages have colourful and well maintained gardens with wonderful views. The cottages are tucked away in a secluded location within the picturesque and historic village of Boot.

Boot has a fantastic setting in the valley of Eskdale eloquently described by the famous Lakeland author Alfred Wainwright:

'Eskdale, one of the loveliest of Lakeland's valleys, descends from the highest and wildest mountains in the district to the sands of Ravenglass in a swift transition from grandeur to beauty... It is a place of many delights, the finest of all valleys for those whose special joy is to travel on foot and a paradise for artists.'

This is the heart of the Lake District National Park with the highest, deepest, steepest, and oldest! Within walking distance are Scafel...
