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.

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...
