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.

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.

Comfortable, warm, homely place to stay for a holiday in The Lakes
The Chalets are warm, comfortable and a perfect base for your holiday. Close to the local pubs which are all welcoming and do lovely hearty food. The chalets provide everything you need for your stay and have a boot room with washing machine/dryer if needed. I would recommend the chalets to friends and will hopefully return soon.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review, we are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Excellent accommodation and lovely location
For our first holiday in the Lake District we could not have chosen a better location and chalet.
Great for walks and scenery.
The chalet was comfortable and exceptionally clean.
Had a great stay ( and the weather did help!)
Clean everything you could need
Thank you so much for taking the time to review The Chalets. We are glad that you had a great holiday and hope to see you back soon.
Lovely little break
The chalet was so lovely and homely (We stayed in Larch). We took our Dachshund with us the garden was perfect for her and it was very easy to get to river which she loved. 5star place for any small dog owner.
Eskdale is very out of the way! Great if you just want peace and quiet and a break from a busy life. I didn’t realise just how out of the way it is until we got there! Despite the information given to me before the journey (should have listened more haha).
I would love to come back in summer when we could really enjoy the outdoors!
Fantastic chalet, definitely recommend.
We have just come home from a lovely weekend in the Lakes. The chalet was very cozy and the gardens were fantastic. The chalets have everything you need for a self catering break.
We stayed with our Springer Spaniel in the Larch and enjoyed a nice long walk on the fells which are accessible from the accommodation.
We will definitely be back!
