Cottage -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Eskdale, Lake District, Cumbria, England
Banklands is a typical Lakeland cottage built in the late 1800's accommodating 6 people, in the heart of Eskdale, set amidst 3 acres of private fields and woodlands.

About the neighbourhood
There are two villages in the valley. The hamlet of Boot has one of the few remaining working water mills in the country, dating back to 1578 and open to visitors, with a museum.

The other village is Eskdale Green, where you can visit the Discover Eskdale centre in St Bega's Church, which looks at the life, times and landscape of the valley through the ages, stock up on provisions from the village shop or take a walk through the exotic Japanese Gardens, created at the end of the 19th century for Lord Rea, a Liverpool coal and shipping magnate who lived in the nearby Gatehouse , now owned by th...
