The Cumbria/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, e.g. 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.

Eskdale

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!
