Whether you’re a keen trainspotter or someone who appreciates beautiful rural locations, this holiday cottage in pretty Eskdale offers the perfect base for a Lakelands retreat.

Stay close to home and discover the village of Eskdale Green, a hidden gem in the heart of the National Park. Further afield, this valley boasts an abundance of stunning walking and biking routes including the charming 13 mile Eskdale Trail. You may prefer to tour the local area aboard the La'al Ratty steam engine, discovering the nearest station just mere metres from your doorstep. This unique mode of transport offers a direct route to the coastal town of Ravenglass that’s around 6 miles away. Of course, it wouldn’t be a true Lake District retreat without a visit to one of the area’s many lakes. Jump in the car to discover Wast Water nearby (5 miles) or the ever-popular Windermere further afield (20.5 miles).

Boasting a traditional décor throughout, this paired back property is perfectly inviting and a real home-from-home. Head on in to a porch area to remove boots and coats before entering the kitchen. This space, which doubles up as a dining room, has been fitted with an electric oven and hob, fridge, microwave and dishwasher – everything you might need to prepare meals throughout your stay. Also downstairs is a bright and cheerful lounge with original wooden beams and comfy sofas. Enjoy the TV/DVD in the evening or switch on the CD player with radio. Upstairs, two cosy bedrooms both offer lovely views to wake up to every morning. The first of these is a snug double whilst the second is a twin. Finally, a family bathroom with WC and shower over bath completes the two-storey accommodation.

Outside you’ll find a shared garden available for use between yourselves and the property next door. This sunny lawn features pretty flowers and plenty of space to stretch your legs. The property also has a private patio that’s furnished for alfresco dining and shared laundry facilities with washing machine and tumble dryer.

Great location, even better now that request stops are back at Irton Road Station on the Ratty.

A cosy and snug cottage well located for walks in Eskdale and for accessing the peaks in Wasdale. Great views from the sitting area outside the cottage of both mountains and the Ravenglass and Eskdale railway - with your own station that you can catch the train to/from only a few yards away! An excellent pub and handy post office both available witRead morehin 10 minutes walk. Best suited for a couple or family with one or two younger children. Hide

Spent a very enjoyable week here, great cottage in lovely surroundings. It was great to spot a red squirrel up the lane near Forest How.

Comfortable accommodation and a great location for accessing and walking the Western Fells, Eskdale and the Coast. As we had kind weather during our week we made use of the outside patio table & chairs to admire the views and watch the (Old Ratty) narrow gauge railway than runs right past the foot of the cottage on its journey between Dalegarth andRead more Ravenglass. A lovely week and would consider staying again in the future. Hide
