Description

Oak Sleeps 4 (2 Bedrooms)

The large living/dining area is a great family space. Books, dvd, games and magazines, comfy sofas, discrete lighting and an lcd tv with dvd player make the living room cosy and homely. The fully equipped kitchen provides you with everything you need to cater for yourselves on holiday, whether it is cheese on toast or a full Sunday roast. If the weather is right, why not use the bbq area in the garden. Two generously sized bedrooms, one double and one twin. All the bedrooms are able to accommodate a cot, which we can provide if needed. The pristine bathroom contains a bath with shower over. Complimentary bath products and large, fluffy bath towels will help you to relax and unwind after a day out on the hills. Should the weather be inclement, The Boot Room has a large drying rack, washing machine and tumble drier. There is also space in here to store children’s buggies, bikes and any other outdoor equipment that you may bring. Mountain Bikes are also available exclusively for you.


About the property

E5663

The Chalets are in the beautiful valley of Eskdale, in the heart of the Lake District National Park. Eskdale can provide you with a new mountain to climb each day and just as many gentle riverside strolls and valley walks. Discover the secret tarn, the quaint church or the stunning waterfalls at Stanley Ghyll. The Chalets are set in a beautiful riverside location close to the village of Boot. Boot village offers traditional Inns, one of the oldest working watermills and a village shop. Eskdale is surrounded by the biggest, deepest and steepest in England. Sca Fell, England’s highest Mountain, can be conquered in a day from The Chalets. Wast water, England’s deepest lake is a beautiful place to spend the day and is just 10 minutes drive away. The Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway, locally known as La’al Ratty, winds it’s way down through the valley to the sea, from Eskdale to Ravenglass, perhaps England’s prettiest train journey.

Why lisa borrowdale Philip Hayden chose Eskdale

We fell in love with The Lake District many years ago and it was a dream to have a property here. Little did we know that we would make it happen in our 30's. Eskdale is the most beautiful, peaceful location you could hope to live in and this makes it a special retreat for holiday makers. We are surrounded by the Lakeland fells and yet far from the madding crowd. Climb a different mountain every day, amble along the river and seek refreshments in one of 4 lovely local pubs or spend the day in our mature riverside south facing gardens.

What makes this chalet unique

The Chalets can provide you with high quality, four-star, holiday cottages in Eskdale. We have 4 cottages, close to the village of Boot. Each Cottage has two bedrooms and is spacious and beautifully furnished. Set in large, mature riverside gardens on the banks of the river Esk. One chalet is able to accommodate a very well behaved house trained dog. The large living/dining area is a great family space. Books, DVD’s, games and magazines, comfy sofas, discrete lighting and an LCD TV with DVD player make the living room is cosy and homely. The fully equipped kitchen provides you with everything you need to cater for yourselves on holiday, whether it is cheese on toast or a full Sunday roast. BBQ, bike hire, washing machine, tumble drier and drying room.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Reasonably priced, lovely and clean, excellent location, Eskdale is one of the loveliest parts of the Lakes.. 15 minutes walking distance to Boot, and lots of lovely walks, Lal Ratty narrow guage railway, suitable for family holidays and seasoned walkers. And a combination of the above!

Fabulous setting for a great holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was my third attempt at trying to get into the Chalets in Boot having twice previously failed to get a booking for the time we were free. The chalets are very roomy, well equipped and have the most gorgeous garden which you can enjoy from your own balcony seat, or stroll around the amazing rhododendrons along the two rivers and listen to the sheep and watch a large number of birds. I can't recommend this highly enough. There are two nice pubs in walking distance, excellent wifi coverage. We had 4 walks and a trip on the railway without needing to use the car. We were also bowled over by Muncaster Castle, which is great all day visit.

What a beautiful place.

  • 5 of 5

The property was so incredibly well maintained, in a beautiful, tranquil space. It had everything you could possibly need for your time there and more, loads of information. The hosts were so friendly, generous, welcoming and helpful.
