“Couldn't have chosen a better location and accommodation for our stay in the Lake District”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2016

We rented this cottage at a time when Cumbria was experiencing the worst floods so we were concerned but received reassurance and carried on with our plans. We are extremely glad we did not miss the opportunity to experience the charming atmosphere of the spacious cottage and the beauty of Eskdale area. We traveled with two small children and grandparents to spend Christmas holidays in the Lake District and we found it very easy to reach points of interest and find activities for all of us. Attractions are very close: the Hardknott Pass, Eskdale Rail, all kinds of walks and even a historic Mill and Church. We even discovered a beautiful waterfall a short and medium walk away. The rain did not hamper our adventures. We were able to drive to Windermere, Grassmere and Keswick and the distances were just right with two restless children. We all enjoyed the Safari Zoo, some sea side towns, mountains and lots of water. In fact, we thought the wet weather made it all more beautiful. The cottage was well supplied, clean and conveniently located in a walking distance to two great pubs but remote, at the same time. We got more than we hoped for.

“Cosy cottage with all our needs catered for”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2016

Stayed here for a week as part of my 70th birthday celebrations with my family. The cottage catered for all our needs, both young and old, and I wished that I could have stayed longer. It was so cosy yet spacious inside with a fabulous choice of bedrooms and bathrooms, we felt spoilt for choice. The cottage is in a wonderful location and is served by a couple of local inns which served delicious food, and just down the road is a wonderful steam railway where we spent a fabulous day travelling up and down the railway track. Would really recommend this cottage and area for a fantastic break in the Lake District, and can not wait to hopefully return one day.

“Even more fantastic fun in Eskdale”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2016

Wastwater Cottage was rented for a week after Christmas and for the New Year with friends staying in adjacent cottages (three families of 2+2). We spoke to Greg about how we would manage to get 12 of us in the accommodation ....he bent over backwards to help and ensure that we had the best deal for us all. We had such a great time. Whilst the weather was wet, we were able to get up onto the beautiful fells and have some quality walks in Eskdale Valley and adjacent Wasdale. The cottage itself was deceptively spacious and we used this as the central place for meals, kids playing and post-walk teas....and G&Ts! We stayed when the weather was arguably at its worst and when many parts of the Lake District were flooded or on flood alert; we had absolutely no issues despite being next to the river and a mill. We have stayed in the other large cottage here before plus the farmhouse and will be coming back here again. It is just so great and there is literally nothing else that you need to bring; there is good washing facilities and places to put muddy boots. I would thoroughly recommend this beautiful setting for future holidays on your own or with family. Lucy, Nick, Jess, Alex, Sarah, John, Oiefa, Amelia, Toy, Justin, Josh and Toby thank you very much for making our stay fantastic....Happy New Year.

“Perfect Lake District cottage”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2016

Cottage: 10/10 - lovely interior and views Location: 10/10 - fantastic site in the heart of the Lake District, yet only a short walk to the local pubs! Rental process and communication: 10/10 - excellent communication before and throughout our stay Couldn't recommend Wastwater Cottage highly enough!

“This cottage is so comfortable, scrupulously clean and in an excellent location for family activities such as walks.”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2016

This was the second time I have stayed at Bridge End cottages - Boot is such a beautiful , quiet village, set in the picturesque western Lake District. My past experience was so excellent that I returned and invited friends to join me. They were just as impressed with the very high standard of accomodation. The cottages are beautifully restored, with luxury bathrooms, very comfortable bedrooms and well maintained gardens. The cottages are located near two friendly, cosy pubs that serve restaurant standard meals. So many different walks are ideal for families of all ages and the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway is within walking distance. I plan to return.

“Fantastic cottage for a truly relaxing break in a stunning location”

Reviewed 8 Nov 2015

Booked Wastwater Cottage as a treat for my Mum's 70th birthday and we were not disappointed. Enjoyed a really fabulous holiday in the Lake District, made all the more special by staying in this gorgeous cottage. For a family of 4 adults and 2 young children, this cottage was simply perfect, a choice of four comfy bedrooms and three lovely bathrooms meant we all had our own space but we were all very cosy when together in the comfortable lounge/diner. Upon arrival, (following the excellent instructions from the owner), we found the cottage was warm, clean and very inviting. We were spolit for choice as to which bedroom to have, and found everything to be clean and tidy, and even more gorgeous than it looks in the pictures. The cottage is set in a really stunning location, with gorgeous scenery and being very peaceful. We enjoyed exploring the old mill which is literally on your doorstep, and had a fabulous day out on the steam railway which is a short walk from the cottage. Had some great drives around the area, especially the Hardknott Pass, and loved the fact that sometimes the only traffic on the road were the cows and sheep which the children loved. The cottage was well equipped with everything you needed to self cater, but also located near to a couple of great inns with fabulous food, particularly the Boot Inn. Just need to ensure that you pick up your groceries before arrival at the cottage, (we shopped at Booths), as there is only the small village shop in Boot once you arrive. Would definitely recommend this cottage for a great holiday in the Lakes, it's in a fantastic location to get away from it all, but also near enough to get to the "tourist attractions" of the Lake District if you wish. We are so glad we decided to stay here, and felt totally relaxed and rejuvenated after our holiday here.

“Wonderful stay in a beautiful place”

Reviewed 2 Nov 2014

My husband and children (ages, 12, 6, 4 and 1) stayed for a week in this lovely cottage. It rained a fair amount so we often stayed in and cooked, watch videos and played board games. The cottage had everything we needed. The large grocery store is at least a 40 minute drive so I recommend you bring what you need, or stop on the way. We had a tough time finding an item or two we forgot locally. When the weather let up, we would be ready to hike right from our cottage, and often accompanied by sheep on our walks. The kids loved it. Even in the rain the scenery is beautiful. We will return for sure.

“Excellent base to explore the area, spotless accommodation.”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2014

The cottage was very clean and very well maintained. We were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed hot sunny days ! We had breakfast and other meals frequently outside in the picturesque garden. The beds were comfortable, and it was very useful to have supplies of washing up liquid and detergent, toilet rolls etc laid on so we did not have to pack those extras. It is in a good position for walking. We visited the local pubs and enjoyed excellent service and food. Unfortunately the local shop did not sell newspapers so we needed to use the car to go and get one daily.
