We stayed here for the week with two dogs, alongside 2 friends who joined us after a few days.
The cottage has been renovated to a high standard, and is very dog friendly, e.g. boot room and external warm hose!
At the same time for a holiday cottage its quite luxurious with a well stocked modern kitchen and lovely bathroom. The only down side at the moment is that there is only one bathroom/toilet. However we understand there are plans to refit a second room in the Autumn of 2015.
The house has awesome fantastic views and is a lovely place to stay. Local walking is as good as ever (I've been to the area at least 7 times), and for the first time ever I managed Scafell Pike (as part of my 60th birthday celebrations), so it was lovely to have a nice deep bath to soak in. Local pubs as ever were good.
What a find, a true hidden gem with spectacular views all around. The house is a credit to the owners, a real home from home feel, with many little special touches, that made our stay extra special. The house has recently been fully refurbished to a very high standard, with many period features to complement the property. What an amazing view direct from the bath tub and the kitchen layout has absolutely every thing you could ask for. The gardens offer uninterrupted spectacular views of the surrounding hills and countryside, all of which constantly change through out the day. At the bottom of the garden is a little train station and hourly the local miniature steam train could be heard and seen. The local area has many beautiful walks through some stunning countryside, with many friendly pubs offering fantastic food and many real ales. The river Esk offers excellent fishing and on the banks is Eskdale Golf Club which is definitely worth a visit. What more can we add..we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will definitely be returning next year......Highly recommended.
