- Very Good
“Another wonderful holiday – our haven from the maddening crowd!”
Back in the maddening crowd ......... it is so good to be able to think back to our many wonderful stays in Boot. Many years ago when staying in one of the local pubs we wandered past Bridge End Farm and little did we know what a treasure we had discovered. Since then Greg, Amy and Bob have made us so welcome - very friendly and hospitable. Made us feel like nothing was too much trouble from day one. Over the years and many visits since we now look forward to seeing them as part of our holiday - it's like seeing old friends. Amy and Bob are close by and Greg always available by phone/email responding extremely quickly wherever he may be in the World. The cottages at Bridge End Farm and in fact Boot itself are in a world of their own – one you want to share with everyone but also want to keep a secret. If you like relaxing, care free holidays with magnificent scenery or whether you enjoy walking up high or just viewing from level ground this village is for you. We would highly recommend Bridge End Farm as the place stay. Whillan Beck has been our cottage of choice over the years as we love the cosiness that comes with it, however, this time we stayed in Stanley Ghyll Cottage and benefitted from the wonderful recently installed new bathroom. Greg, the owner, regularly reviews the cottages to ensure standards are maintained and we have seen inside all the properties – each a bit different with one thing in common, all are well cared for and ready to provide a wonderful stay.
We have 40 years experience of Cumbrian cottages. This cottage is among the best. Immaculate, well serviced, very comfortable. Pleasant courtyard and access to a large garden. Two local pubs. Good for walks, especially fell walks. This is the third Bridge End cottage we have rented and have enjoyed all of them - we will certainly return. We were very pleased with the owner's personal attention.
“Unspoiled part of the Lake District”
This was our second trip to stay the cottages in Boot, Eskdale. Our first was two years ago on our post wedding 'mini-moon' break, only to return for an anniversary trip. I've been to many parts of the Lake District and each place has it's beauty but Eskdale has a untouched-by-tourists edge to it and it was a treat to come back and take in the breathtaking beauty of it's surroundings. The cottages are well situated with ample walks of both long and short distances that start from the doorstep, the famous Hard Knott and Wrynose pass are also a five minute drive away. It has locally sourced produce for sale nearby and a handful of fantastic pubs withing walking distance that are friendly and serve good food. Great quality accommodation, good parking, well worth a visit. We will certainly be back again.
“Another restful stay”
Another great stay at Stanley Ghyll cottage. The only thing you have to take is yourself as everything is catered for! Greg Poole is a delight to deal with when booking and he does everything (and more) in his power to make sure your holiday is hassle free. I have already booked for my third visit here and cannot wait!
“Idyllic, peaceful retreat in Eskdale”
We are returning to this lovely place for the third successive year in 2013. Stanley Ghyll Cottage is set apart from the other beautifully converted farm buildings at the end of a private farm lane. It is quiet, cosy, comfortable, very-well equipped and spotlessly clean. It is small but perfectly adequate for two adults who get on well together! Wifi and television are somewhat unpredictable but one does not come to remote Eskdale for such things. Freezer space is very limited. Walking in one direction from the cottage,one is soon on the fells in the direction of Wastwater; in the other direction a short stroll takes one to the banks of the river Esk (a delightful alternative on the inevitable rainy/misty days). The Woolpack Inn, a few miles down the road, serves excellent food. Will be wonderful to return here!
“Great cottage in one of the best locations in the lakes.”
A beautiful cottage in a fantastic setting. The cottage had everything we needed and more. Very cosy and homely. Located in a lovely quiet part of the lakes yet most amenities not far away at all. Lots of fantastic walks from the door step.
“Feel the stress melt away”
I arrived at Stanley Ghyll cottage (part of Bridge End Farm cottages) made myself a coffee went out into the garden and all I could hear was the sound of birdsong, and the nearby beck - bliss!! Stanley Ghyll is just big enough for 2 but the other cottages cater for larger groups/families. Everything you need is already there,Ann the housekeeper very friendly and helpful. The cottage has a comprehensive guide to the surrounding areas with suggestions for things to do and places to visit with detailed directions. The only negative point (for me a bonus!) is that immediately in and around the cottages there is no mobile phone signal,however as you drive further afield the signal returns. There is a payphone in the laundry room and a telehone box across from the village shop from which you can text and email. The laundry room also has internet access. The Boot Inn is 2 minutes walk away and a hotel at the bottom of the road,a 5 minute walk. If you are keen on walking you are in heaven and the scenery is stunning. I fully intend to return this year.
“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...
“Excellent accommodation in beautiful surroundings”
We had a very pleasant week in the beautiful surroundings of Eskdale. The cottage was comfortable with all that we needed and full of rustic charm. We particularly liked the exposed beams and internal stonework. We were able to do a number of challenging and interesting walks from the doorstep of the cottage, which also had its own well maintained attractive gardens for relaxing in. The staff were welcoming and helpful and all in all we had an excellent holiday at Stanley Ghyll Cottage.
“Excellent location, pubs & good walks nearby, superb accommodation”
We had stayed in another cottage a few weeks previously (Hardknott Cottage) and clearly enjoyed that so much we came back again! However, this time we wanted to try a slightly different cottage, so we went for Stanley Ghyll. I have stayed in the lakes several times over the years, but always in the main areas, on the eastern or nothern side. I wanted to take my girlfriend somewhere different so i decided on Eskdale which is an area i had never experienced before. I must say that i prefer this area now, since it's got everything you want; the "Lakes experience" - but not in the mad crowds of somewhere like Keswick. The cottage itself is fantastic as it’s a secluded detached building. The cottages are set in a hamlet called Boot, which has a pub 2 minutes walk away, and another one about 3 minutes away from that! They do fantastic food and beer. There are plenty of other choices too. Regarding things to do; of course there are walks, there's the beach not far away, there's a bunch of hills to climb and Sca Fell pike is close by if you feel like climbing a mountain (which we did and it was very satisfying). While we were there we also popped into Gosforth and had a pottery lesson which was good fun too. I think that the high quality of these cottages + the superb location offer an ideal experience to "get away from it all" without having to book flights, or worry about passports, or whether you're carrying over 100ml of liquid! This is only my second ever review on Trip Advisor and i only write something if a place has had a big impact on me - in this case it was a very positive one.
