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.

Travel to Eskdale, Lake District

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 pictures on the website were very accurate - the view from the picnic table outside stole the show and we frequently enjoyed pots of tea and Christine's (very welcome) shortbread here after our long walking days. For even deeper peace and solitude, I retired to the bench at the bottom of the garden, where I had the grazing sheep in the adjoining field for company! The cottage itself was toasty warm and comfortable and had everything we needed (though perhaps more than one tea-towel would be useful as we had to go and buy some more). The five of us (two adults and three growing teenagers) fitted in comfortably - we just had to be organised with rucksacks etc downstairs. Upstairs, there was plenty of room in the bedrooms for personal luggage. The two bathrooms were a Godsend (though the booster only provides a shallow bath each time) and the storage heaters kept the cottage at a comfortable temperature and could be turned up as needed. Thank you so much for providing so many maps, walks and local information - which we put to good use. We would recommend many of the walks from the door. We had a much-needed week away from the rat race and would not hesitate to book again. Thanks again for sharing your peaceful corner of the Lakes, Christine.

Has obviously been lovingly renovated. Only thing I will highlight is that the stairs to the first floor are very steep - were fine for us but might be more of an issue for those older or with very young children.

Brownies and wine on arrival which was very much apprciated. Beds very comfortable, good quality pillows and bedding made it even more perfect. Excellent location to the pub and surrounding areas for lots of things to do and see. Overall all we couldnt fault anything and would highly recommend this property and its lovely owners.
