“its a little gem, a great escape for my husband and I..” We have gone now for the last 7 years, we always go the beginning of January because its the ideal place to escape after our busy Christmas & New Year period. Its beautiful setting with the local pubs serving good food and drinks, and the amazing walks just steps away makes it the perfect place for us, it will alway be special to us...
“Fantastic cosy, comfortable cottage in idyllic location - can't wait to go back!” From the moment we enquired to book with Select Cottages we received excellent personable customer service - quick to respond, efficient and friendly. A great deal of thought has gone into making the cottage comfortable and a wonderful place to relax in after a day on the fells or a stroll by the beck/waterfall. We were made to feel very welcome and it is truly a home away from home. Peace and solitude coupled with internet and Sky TV for checking in with the real world! For us, the accommodation and location would take some beating. Roll on October when we will be back again.
“Luxury accommodation with an amazing view” The new lodge at fisherground has everything you could need. It is very well thought out, with all fixtures and fittings to excellent standard. The rooms were spacious and with two luxury bathrooms with two teenagers was a great bonus (with added luxury of a heated floor no less!).
Wood burner made it even more cosy.
Views were stunning - no need to turn the tv on.
Well situated - short walk to pub and numerous potential walks from your front door.
“Wonderful farmhouse!” Huge thank you for a lovely stay. The farm house was just wonderful - it was warm, cosy and inviting after a wet days hike; there was plenty of hot water for baths and showers and the drying room was super for all our wet and muddy boots. We even managed to sit in the garden and watch the amazing birds. The housekeeping staff were fantastic - the farm house was perfect when we arrived and they were around during the week if we needed anything. Eskdale is a beautiful part of the Lake District and the farmhouse was a super base to explore . What was particularly great was the number of trail heads literally right on the doorstep - stone circles, tarns, fells, rivers, waterfalls etc. We explored Stanley Gill by foot,; Hardknott Pass was a few miles away; Wastwater and Wasdale were a short hike away or a short drive. Also, the Ravenglass & Eskdale steam train is a short walk from the house and we took to Muncaster Castle. Thanks again!
“A Wonderful Introduction to the Lake District” This was our first trip to the Lake District and I'm delighted that I stumbled on these cottages. They are brilliantly situated in a lovely quiet village in the western lakes district. I didn't appreciate how lovely and quiet everything was until we drove around to some of the other towns and lakes and then I realized what a gem we had found. Greg, the owner was incredibly helpful with great tips on walks and hikes in the valley.
The cottage itself was very cosy and because we had such beautiful weather we would often spend the late afternoon laying out in the garden or riverside picnic area that is part of the property. It was a wonderful trip and was the perfect antidote to a hectic season in London.
We stayed at rose cottage for a long weekend at the beginning of April. Before we got to the cottage the owners sent us lots of information about the cottage and things to do in the local area. When we arrived, the owners left wine, bread, eggs and bacon which was a lovely touch. The cottage was very peaceful and located in a small village which is exactly what we needed and the lovely weather made the weekend perfect. We even ventured over hard nose pass which was petrifying but worth the amazing views and great for opportunities. Our only very small criticism of the cottage was that it only had a two slice toaster. We were 6 adults so making toast in the morning for us all took ages! A 4 slice roster and a cafetière would make a big difference at breakfast times but other than that the kitchen was well stocked with everything we need.
Thank you for a lovely stay. We will definitely be back! …
Great location and facilities
Quiet location on a country lane with fells and river nearby.
Facilities great for family activities.
Layout of the house suited our group of 14 extremely well.
A couple of issues were of concern but the owner is now aware of these and has them in hand. They did not detract from a great week !
Thank you Hinning House. …

Perfect Lakes District getaway for serene beauty and tranquility
Banklands is a truly perfect cottage and setting in the Lakes District if you are looking for a wonderfully private and beautiful setting, but an easy walk to local pubs, a quaint village, and many walking trails.

The owners are incredibly responsive and are immediately available for any questions or concerns. Look no further than Banklands for booking your perfect Lakes holiday! …
