The Lake District

Historic Market Towns of Cockermouth, Keswick and Ulverston. The latter has lovely cobbled streets, lots of festivals, the award winning Booths Supermarket and, being the home of Laurel and Hardy, has an interesting museum in their memory .

Georgian Whitehaven with its many beautiful buildings and historic port which hosts a biennial tall ships maritime festival.

The Rum Story in Whitehaven is a fascinating educational exhibition and is just as much an insight into the cruelty of the Slave Trade and atrocious living conditions both on board ships and in the colonies in the 1700's, as it is about the story of Rum. It is in my opinion a must for any GCSE or A Level History students.

Also worth visiting are the pretty village of Cartmel with its beautiful Priory and smallest Race Course in England, or the city of Carlisle with its Castle, Cathedral and Race Course.

Country Houses, Castles, Cottages and Gardens: Cumbria has these in abundance. Just to mention a few, there is Holker Hall - a large country house with superb gardens, deer park and car museum. Levens Hall - an Elizabethan Manor House with some of the best topiary in England. Sizergh Castle - a small but traditional castle with battlements and banqueting hall. Brantwood - former home of John Ruskin in a quite outstanding location on the shores of Lake Coniston. Wordsworth's Dove Cottage and Museum - the list goes on .

Beautiful Sandy Beaches: The nearest beach to Boot is only a 20 minute drive and West Cumbria has many vast sweeping beaches. Visit the sandy beaches at Drigg with its shipwreck, Seascale and Haverigg or the pebbles and cliffs at St Bees where the bird sanctuary is home to puffins and other seabirds.

Cruises on the Lakes: There are many options to go for a lake cruise or to hire motor boats, rowing boats and other craft on Ullswater, Windermere, Derwent Water and Coniston Water. Our favourite is taking the 100 year old Gondola steam yacht across Coniston Water to Brantwood, John Ruskin's former home.

Favourite Drives: We are in the process of compiling details of our favourite drives and hope to have these in the cottages in the near future eg, discover the secrets of the Duddon Valley, Broughton in Furness and Corney Fell or take a circular trip taking in 8 Lakes and 3 mountains passes! Just ask us for some tips on where to go and we will do our best to recommend something to suit your tastes.

Other Attractions: We have visited and can recommend Gosforth Pottery, Florence Mine near Egremont (interesting underground tours of a former iron ore mine), the Lakeland Sheep and Wool Centre near Cockermouth, the Cumberland Toy and Model Museum in Cockermouth, the Lake District Coast Aquarium at Maryport and the South Lakes Wild Animal Park, voted Lake District's top visitor attraction in 2005 near Dalton in Furness.


Bridge End Farm Cottages have colourful and well maintained gardens with wonderful views. The cottages are tucked away in a secluded location within the picturesque and historic village of Boot.

Boot has a fantastic setting in the valley of Eskdale eloquently described by the famous Lakeland author Alfred Wainwright:

"Eskdale, one of the loveliest of Lakeland's valleys, descends from the highest and wildest mountains in the district to the sands of Ravenglass in a swift transition from grandeur to beauty... It is a place of many delights, the finest of all valleys for those whose special joy is to travel on foot and a paradise for artists."

This is the heart of the Lake District National Park with the highest, deepest, steepest, and oldest! Within walking distance are Scafell Pike, England's highest mountain, dramatic Wastwater, its deepest lake, Hardknott Pass, its steepest road and Boot Mill, its oldest working water mill. It is a very special area for walkers with many of the finest walks in England on the doorstep - see section on website on Walking.

Boot Village - Bridge End Farm Cottages are in the village of Boot. It is one of the Lake District's "scenic hamlets", nestling beneath mighty Scafell and despite having only some 20 to 30 residents boasts a church, post office, craft shop, corn mill museum and two traditional Inns. The village is secluded but not isolated.

Our 2 village pubs, The Boot Inn (formerly The Burnmoor) and Brook House Inn are only 50 yards and 150 yards away and there are a further 3 pubs in the valley - The Woolpack, King George IV and Bower House. They are all within a pleasant walk or 5 minutes drive of Boot and serve good food and Cumberland Ales. Imagine returning from a long day on the fells to a well-earned pint of real ale and hearty meal in front of a roaring log fire on a crisp winter evening or in the beer garden on a balmy summer evening!

"Great return trip to Boot in the Lake District"

This was the second time we have stayed at Bridge End Cottages, taking two of the cottages this time for 13 adults. Went in March last time. Loads of character. Very comfortable and plenty of room. Nice to be in a quiet spot but with nice pubs near. Had a lovely dinner at Brook House in the village, and also popped in for the odd drink.

My family and I stayed at Scafell Cottage for the third time (the first being about three years ago and again last year). We return here because the cottage is fabulously placed for all our needs. It was welcoming and warm and after a day on the fells it is lovely to come into a cosy atmosphere. The whole stay (and previous stays) has been so delightful. The garden outside (with a barbecue) is great for young children to play in and all the rooms are cosy and two of the them en-suite and very suitable for families with babies and young children. The other two twin and triple rooms are very very well equipped with a separate bathroom. There are three good pubs locally in and around the village, i.e. Boot Inn, The Woolpack, The George !V and a nice restaurant called Brook House. It is convenient for Muncaster Castle which is a super place to take children (especially on the little Rattay Railway which runs from Boot itself). You don't even need to take the car out as there are so many good walks around and the scenery is absolutely breathtaking. The staff (i.e. Housekeeper and Caretaker were exceedingly nice and helpful too).I wholly recommend Scafell Cottage.

"Perfect family holiday in the perfect location"

Just come back from a superb 10 day holiday at Scafell Cottage. The house was perfectly equipped and we were met by the owner who proceeded to take an hour out to show us the best walks, fishing and things to do with the kids. The property is comfortably furnished (would have loved a bigger double bed and a real fire but they were the only minor gripes!) and led out to a large open plan garden which is shared with the other 3 cottages and lead down to a stream where our kids (boys aged 4, 9 and 12) spent many a happy hour. The cottage leads out onto several walks direct from the doorstep as well as easy hopping (between 50m and 200m) distance to 2 great pubs with another 2 superb ones less than a mile away. It's close to Wast Water which is at the bottom of the magnificent Scafell Peek which we climbed one day (allow 5 hours with kids and not under 7!) Wast Water itself is one of the less touristy lakes and is stunning. All in all couldn't recommend both the property and area enough and can't wait to go back.

"Scafell Cottage for a Perfect Holiday"

A beautiful cottage in a perfect setting with everything you could need supplied and spotlessly clean. Scafell was absolutely perfect for our family of 9 and we all felt so at home there. It was comfortable, cosy and homely. The teenagers were initially aghast to find there was no signal for their iphones etc but were so happily occupied cycling, walking and yes they were even swimming up at the pool by the Mill, that the phones were soon forgotten about and we had more conversation with them than we have had for ages! Ann and Bob the caretakers are lovely people and so helpful. Boot is the perfect location for walking, cycling or just lazing about by the river. Local food was first class.
