This is a great retreat for a large family or a group of friends looking to make their own entertainment and enjoy the natural beauty of Cumbria. This isn't a top quality rental, so if that's your expectation look elsewhere, however - if you are looking for a homely, comfortable, affordable holiday home which is in a beautiful location with lots of space and the bonus of an open-air hut tub and a real fire in the lounge then this could be ideal.
Peel Place Noddle was once a family home and much of it remains unchanged from these days. That has a sweetness, and if you can embrace this perspective and not be too critical you will enjoy every moment at 'the Noddle'. There is a beautiful, spacious, safe and enclosed garden area which includes parking for 3/4 cars. Beware that vans may struggle due to narrow pillars on the entrance to the track.
The wood-burner is located in a small 'snug' with a 2-seater sofa. The main lounge area has an open fire which needs lots of fuel to warm up the room in the winter due to the large size of the open-plan lounge and dining area. The hot-tub is located on a wooden decking, just off the main lounge/diner, which is ideal for popping in and out without getting too cold.
The kitchen is large with a hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. If you enjoy cooking you may wish to pack your own knives to avoid disappointment. One family bathroom plus a downstairs toilet and a single en-suite room may be a struggle if you are not close family and friends and you manage to fill the place.
There is free wifi, a TV and access to a CD player. A mini-railway runs along the bottom of the garden in the main season and there is a pub and a shop within a 10 minute walk (in opposite directions). It's a dog friendly rental and could be suitable for children depending on their ages.
There are some lovely walks from the doorstep. The 'drying room' is a good feature to make sure your boots and jackets are ready for the next day regardless of the conditions. I'd be happy to consider a return trip if we were staying in the area.
Just back from our second stay in this home from home but in the most beautiful valley. The house boasts a gorgeous garden, hot tub and the Ratty (narrow gauge steam train) runs past, what's not to love!!!
We are three generations, three dogs group that love walking the fells then hitting the pub for a bite to eat and a couple of drinks, you are spoilt for choice.
If shopping yours thing Eskdale isn't for you but if you love beautiful scenery, wildlife, walking, then this is the place.
Just got back from a wonderful week in Eskdale Green, the house is great for a large group, there were 9 adults and 1 child in our party, the house is good value for money and now also boasts a hot tub. We found the owner extremely helpful and easy to contact. A great base for exploring the local area and surrounding areas, with a short drive to Wasdale Head for a hike up Scafell Pike. Would also recommend the local pub King George IV for great bar meals and ales.
