Thank you Gina for those kind words. We are indeed well served with great pubs and hikes in the Eskdale Valley. I'm sorry the cottage was a little cold on arrival, our housekeeping staff will put the heating on earlier in these particularly cold spells...More

Cottage is very cosy and clean, retaining its character. If you're tall, be careful not to bang your head on the roof beams. Bathroom very nice with rolltop bath/shower and separate shower, but we could have done with some more toiletries for our stay such...More

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...

How to get there
Airport: Manchester: 170.0 km

If coming from the North exit the M6 at Carlisle, then take the A5959 to Cockermouth, Egremont and then Gosforth. Head up Eskdale from the west.

If coming from the South, Depart the M6 at Junction 36. The quickest route is along the A590/A595 along South Cumbria to Broughton in Furness then through Ulpha and over Birker Moor.
