Make A Holiday Rental Cottage in Eskdale, Lake District, England, Your Home Away From Home

The small village of Eskdale is located in arguably one of the most scenic parts of the country of England: deep within the Lake District of Cumbria and surrounded by impressive hilly peaks and beautiful bodies of water that are waiting to literally take your breath away. Your holidays in Eskdale are likely to be spent in a rural cottage that will provide you with access to all parts of this beautiful National Park. There are also some charming and quaint towns close to the village that are deserving of your exploration.

Things to Do on Holiday in Eskdale, Lake District

Your holidays in Eskdale will offer you two choices: either the option to enjoy total and uninterrupted relaxation in your rustic self catering cottage, or the chance to be very active indeed, in an area that offers more activities than you can shake a stick at. These activities include the likes of nature walking, rambling, lake fishing and sailing, golf, jogging, tennis and swimming. For those of you that are looking for an even more adrenaline-pumping holiday in Eskdale, you may wish to consider white-water-rafting, abseiling and maybe even a bungee jump.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Eskdale, Lake District

As your holidays in Eskdale will be spent in one of the most beautiful National Parks in the United Kingdom, most of the ideas for places to visit will be right on your doorstep. Lake Windermere is probably the most famous of the great lakes in this part of Cumbria and there are some good tourist facilities to be enjoyed in Windermere itself and the town of Bowness. Why not take one of the boat trips that explore the largest lake in England? You may even like to hire your own boat and explore this body of water more independently. Whilst in this part of north-west England, other towns that should be seen include Kendal, Ambleside, Keswick and Penrith.

Weather in Eskdale, Lake District

If you are considering your holidays in Eskdale, you really will need to be prepared for the fact that Cumbria and The Lake District can be very wet indeed. In fact, this can be the case at any time of the year. Therefore it is imperative for you to take suitable outer clothing whenever you go. Summer temperatures average at around 19 degrees Celsius, although they can venture into the mid-twenties at times. Winters can be quite severe, especially at the higher elevations, and the average temperature at sea level would probably equate to around 6 degrees Celsius.

Travelling to your cosy and comfortable self catering cottage in Eskdale could not be any easier for you and you have a choice of options in how to get there. Many people arrive in Eskdale by road and the nearby M6 motorway will make this exceptionally easy for you. If you would prefer to travel by train: no problem as there are stations in Windermere and other towns in the county. If you are travelling by air, Manchester Airport (MAN) may be perfect; or Liverpool John Lennon (LPL) is about the same distance away.

The cottage was very warm, comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed and more. The location is excellent with fine mountain walks possible straight from the door, plus the boon of plenty of pubs and grocery shops within a very short walking distance. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

The road is very quiet, there's nature galore on your doorstep and the pub down the road was great. Amanda was extremely helpful when booking and she's really done a good job renovating her home. Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and a lovely roll top bath. We'll definitely be coming back as we'd love to see the valley in the summer.

The cottage is very well equiped and we were so happy to have a Christmas tree to make us feel at home for the few days we stayed there. Thank you so much for making such a lovely cottage available to us!
