Location description from manager

The England region

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.

Boot

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 location, great accomodation”

Reviewed 12 Jan 2016

We stayed with Select Cottages in Brittany back in spring and were so pleased with the cottage and Greg’s help while booking that we decided to stay at one of The Lakes cottages in late summer. We were three couples, one with two small children and we found there was plenty of space for all of us and plenty to do. It was great to have the outdoor area for the children in the morning and evening so they could run around while meals were prepared. With a few peaks still to walk in the area I can see this becoming a regular jaunt.

“Great relaxing stay”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2016

We stayed at Bridge End for New Year. What a lovely spot.Boot is a small hamlet off the beaten track with two nice pubs one right next door. The cottage is well appointed with everything you need, including sky TV and wifi (essential for my teenage son). There was plenty of room for the seven of us - five adults and two children. The surrounding area is a wakes paradise, but walkers we are not. We used it as a base to explore the cumbria coast and around the hardknott, and we wern't dissapointed. The weather was against us, but the cottage was always warm and we coming. Special thank you to Greg for keeping us up to date with the weather coditions and making sure we had everything we needed. What a great chill out we all had.

“Great time had by all”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2016

Beautiful period farmhouse that accommodated adults and teenagers with comfort. Location at Boot is fantastic to access the Western Fells including England's highest mountain with minimal fuss. The farmhouse was clean, warm and lacked for nothing. Drying room excellent for damp socks.

“The Farmouse is charming; the owner and staff made every effort to ensure we had a wonderful stay.”

Reviewed 27 May 2015

A cottage that has welcoming owners, immense charm and is very thoughtfully and fully equipped. There's so much to see nearby but we looked forward to returning each day so we could enjoy the cottage too.

“Excellent accommodation in a fantastic location!”

Reviewed 4 Mar 2015

We spent 3 nights in the farmhouse at Bridge End Cottages in Boot last week. The standard of accommodation was extremely high. We thoroughly enjoyed walking in Upper Eskdale and relaxing in the pub next door. We will be back in the autumn for certain.

“Beautiful property, perfect location and excellent attention to detail.”

Reviewed 9 Oct 2014

Stayed at Bridge End Farmhouse for 3 nights with my wife and our 2 young children, together with another couple and their 2 young children. We all had a fabulous time, felt very much at home and it is very clear the property is well managed with excellent attention to detail and consideration to guests. The farmhouse is very spacious, packed with character but also warm, clean and well presented. The owners provided plenty of facilities and provisions (e.g. towels, kitchen and bathroom essentials, tea/coffee etc as well as toys, games, wifi, videos for the children) that made our stay perfect. I will have no hesitations booking this accommodation again over the coming months.

“Excellent cottage in the middle of the Western Lake District”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2014

The Bridge End Farmhouse Cottage was a wonderful facility. Our stay was comfortable and relaxing. The cottage was very clean and the booking process was exactly as described by Greg. A few highlights: From the cottage, you can hear a soft waterfall that reminds you that you are in the wonderful wilderness of the Lake District. "Britain's best view" is a 30 minute drive away (Wast Water), and there are multiple other great hiking trails nearby. Other items of interest: The drive from the south is a twisty 45 minute, 1-lane road drive, but the views along the way are incredible. In poor weather, I would imagine this to be a difficult drive. In the area of Boot, there is no mobile coverage (at least with Vodaphone, 3, or EE), so the WiFi at the cottage was helpful.

“Loved house and area!”

Reviewed 9 Apr 2013

We loved the cottage, it was full of character and history. The cottage had nice little welcoming touches such as tea coffee milk and household essentials. things that sometimes aren't at properties self catering and you forget. The area was beautiful and as there was still snow of the mountains the scenery was amazing. It made for great photos. The house had everything we needed and there was a great pub very close which had great atmosphere and food. The walks in the area were great and even with little ones(9-4) there were walks we all enjoyed. It was a great week and we were well rested. A nice relaxing break in beautiful surroundings

“very quite pleasant village to stay in, beautiful surroundings”

Reviewed 28 Mar 2013

this must be the best part of the lake district. personally i don't like the cities and the shopping, so staying in boot for a quite stay with my wife was the best holiday of my life. pleasant walk by the river in the evenings, or more adventurous mountain climbs there's the best of both worlds. Everything was there in the house and we didn't lack anything. many thanks

“Wonderful farmhouse!”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2012

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!
