“Another Great Holiday”

Reviewed 22 Apr 2016

We made our third visit in a year to Select Cottages in Boot over Easter. This time we opted to stay in Hardknott Cottage and we were not disappointed. Ideally suited for a couple but there was plenty of room for our 3 year olds foldaway bed. We liked the new bathroom and the spacious open plan layout. The access to the rear garden would be great in better weather!. The immediate area is great for young and old alike with easy or more difficult walking trails; we spend most of our time travelling on the 'Ratty' (Narrow gauge railway) then walking from various stations along the line. Looking forward to our next visit.

Thank you so much for staying with us three times in the year. Yes the steam train is a real 'hit' with little boys and their parents of course. We look forward to your next visit.

“Beautiful cottage”

Reviewed 11 Feb 2016

Hardknott cottage is a superb cottage with a great comfortable bed and beautiful bathroom. The cottage was very warm and lacked for nothing. The location of Boot is stunning with easy access to the fells and within an easy stroll to two excellent pubs. I would unreservedly recommend the cottage and the location.

“Fantastic, fun and friendly experience in Eskdale”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2016

Hardknott Cottage was rented for a week after Christmas and for the New Year with friends staying in adjacent cottages. 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 extremely well equipped with excellent attention to detail; the deep bath was a particular hit! Thank you Greg for all your help, your reassuring emails and your updates on the weather and flooding situation. We stayed when the weather was arguably at its worst and when many parts of the Lake District were flooded or on flood alert. Despite being adjacent to a flowing river and working mill, we were nowhere near being flooded. I would thoroughly recommend this beautiful setting for future holidays on your own or with family.

“Excellent location, pubs & good walks nearby, superb accommodation”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2011

I have just reviewed another cottage (Stanley Ghyll) which is in the same fantastic location - so i won't repeat myself too much on the location side of this one. This is the first cottage we stayed in in Eskdale - and clearly we liked the location and cottages so much we came back only a few weeks later! This particular cottage is fine, but we did prefer the Stanley Ghyll one. Just need to mind your head on the way in!. As with the other cottage we stayed in, the place was very clean, well organised and had everything we needed (i think the only other thing i brought the second time was my egg poacher!). Great place for walks - you can get access to the "regular" lakes via the hardknott pass which is kinda fun but you need to drive carefully - you can always use another route if you prefer. Plenty of pubs nearby with interestingly named ales and good food. So - what's not to like?

“Superb accommodation in a peaceful setting amongst some of the finest mountain walking in the Lake District”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2011

As a keen hill walker, I have spent many weekends and holidays in the Lake District over the last 15 years. I can honestly say that this is probably my best 'find' in the Lakes in all this time. The accommodation at Bridge End Farm is superb, the Eskdale valley is incredibly peaceful, even in July, and the mountain terrain of Upper Eskdale is magnificent, amongst the finest to be found in the Lakes. This combination made my stay here a truly magical experience. Thank you so much to Greg and Serena who were extremely hospitable throughout my stay.

“An excellent place to stay in a stunning surrounding”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2011

We have stayed in The Hardknott Cottage for two weeks in June 2011. The service was excellent. The property owner lived next door and was very helpful in making our stay as pleasant as possible. He knows the Lake District and his recommendations about places to visit were very valuable. The cottage had everything we needed. The mountains are at your doorstep and wonderful walks ( climbing and easy) can start at the location. The Hardknott Pass (not in bad weather) makes it easy to visit the Westside of the Lake District.
