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.

We loved our stay at Phil and Lisa’s chalet
We enjoyed our stay at Beckfoot very much. The chalet was warm and comfortable and well equipped and Phil and Lisa and family were very welcoming. We felt at home there straight away. The countryside in the area is spectacular and we had some fabulous walks along the River Esk and around Wastwater. We also loved the narrow gauge train ride from just down the road to Ravenglass!
Superb accommodation in a beautiful location.
So very welcoming, so beautiful, so clean, so well thought out. We were even toasty warm (natural anxiety coming from the south...). We will be back (meant in a good way!)
Another Fantastic Stay
The Chalets in Boot are perfectly located for exploring the South West of the Lake District with some great walking from the door or just a short car ride away. The Chalets themselves are well equipped, comfortable and have a great outlook over the lovely garden. This being our second visit, we will definitely stay here again when we visit this part of the lakes, why would we stay anywhere else?
A lovely chalet, beautiful garden and surroundings.
When you enter the chalet you are greeted with a home made cake. The chalet is beautifully kept, there is everything you need, plenty of clean towels, clean bedding, comfortable bed, TV, DVD player along with some DVD'S. The lounge is lovely and big and overlooks a beautiful very large garden. The owners have catered for nearly all of your needs including a BBQ, and your own space to have the BBQ. If you are a bird lover they also have a bird feeder of your own so you can watch an array of many different birds. We found the owners very friendly and welcoming.
This is a beautiful part of the country which I shall hopefully return often. The accommodation was immaculate, and the owners very accommodating, the setting is in beautiful grounds and walks right from the doorstep. cannot rate this property highly enough. Perfect!
