Key How Cottage
About the home
Set in the picturesque village of Eskdale, Key How Cottage is a fantastic cottage which has recently been renovated and refurbished. Handy for both the pub and the village shop, there are also hundreds of walks right from the front door either on the fells or along the banks of the River Esk, which flows from Scafell at the top of the valley down to the estuary at Ravenglass, an old fishing village complete with a ruined Roman bath-house.
The river has natural pools for swimming and is a popular place for canoeing and fishing. The famous Ravenglass & Eskdale Miniature Railway runs along the valley, its steam trains making the leisurely seven-mile journey down to the sea - Irton Road station is just ten mins walk from the Cottage.
There are five pubs in the valley (the Bower House Inn is just a five minute walk away), all welcoming children and serving real ales and a wide choice of good food. The village shop is just a ten minute walk away and sells a comprehensive range of goods, including groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables, food to go, alcohol and newspapers. There is some reception for mobile phones on the Orange network.

The Eskdale area
Eskdale is a wonderful valley of the Lake District with Scafell Pike at it's head the fell walking is unrivaled and the river Esk which runs all the way through the valley down to Ravenglass on the coast has crystal clear waters (greart for a swim if it's warm enough!!). There are also 5 pubs in the valley so eating out isn't a problem as well as a village shop. There are also some great attractions such as the Eskdale to Ravenglass Railway which is a small steam railway - great for kids and adults alike (think Thomas the tank engine!). There is also Muncaster Castle, Gardens and Owel Centre a great place to explore for the day.
