Location description from owner

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!

“Idylic retreat in the Western Lakes”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2016

Having stayed in Wrynose Cottage 6 months earlier we decided to book for a longer stay this time. Greg, the Manager contacted us personally following our on-line booking to make sure our requests were catered for(our 3 year old son stayed with us). The cottage is perfectly situated within the farm complex at the end of the road in the hamlet of Boot, 2 good pubs are within 5 minutes walk and there is a small shop in Boot. The cottage was presented to an excellent standard with a new bathroom and had everything we needed for our stay, the parking is compact but OK as there are allocated spaces for each cottage. We particularly like the Eskdale Valley for hiking with our son and visiting the local attractions such as the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway and Muncaster Castle. A drive over the Wrynose Pass and Hardknott Pass is a must during the stay!

“More Fantastic Fun in Eskdale”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2016

Wrynose Cottage was rented for a week after Christmas and for the New Year with friends staying in two adjacent cottages. Again 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 is more petite than Hardnott, but was equally as well equipped with excellent attention to detail; the new bathroom was beautifully done! Thank you again 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. We used three cottages all up and were in and out of them all (and had very friendly neighbours). Great for groups, whilst retaining some space!

“A great place to stay for a weekend hike.”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2016

The house was warm, comfortable and clean with lovely vistas and easy access to the mountains. The beds were comfortable and the sofa bed worked a treat.

“A Lakeland oasis”

Reviewed 3 May 2015

Perfectly situated for exploring the western lakes. A lovely cottage, beautifully presented in a perfect location for walking, photography or just listening to the birds and rivers. Perfect

“A little piece of heaven”

Reviewed 30 Jan 2014

Discovered the cottages in September 2013 and spent a week in Wrynose cottage.Found an excuse, a birthday, to return in January.The cottage is ideal away from the hurly burly of life with excellent food at the Brook House Inn yards away. The cottage is warm cosy and clean and the welcoming touches i.e. milk in fridge, heat & light on for arrival were greatly appreciated plus a welcome tray and a few treats as returning guests were lovely.An ideal hideaway whatever the weather.

“A wonderful break in a perfect Lakeland location.”

Reviewed 7 Apr 2013

We had a wonderful time and the weather , though cool for April, was excellent for a walking holiday. Having plenty of snow still on the ground made the views even more impressive than usual. The cottage location is ideal for a Lakeland walking holiday avoiding the main tourist crowds and busy routes. The cottage itself was especially cosy and perfectly fitted out. We will certainly consider returning if/when the opportunity arises.

“simply the best!”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2011

Lovely little cottage - all on one level, so good for those with limited mobility. Excellent condition throughout - clean, comfortable, warm, well-equipped. Good walking and cycling from the doorstep - and the full Sky TV package for the odd rainy day! Helpful and unobtrusive staff on site from time to time if needed. Two good pubs within walking distance for excellent meals. Highly recommended for a couple seeking a dream holiday in a stunning location!

“Stunning group of cottages in wonderful location”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2011

Bridge End Farm is ideally situated for a walking holiday in the Western Lakes.It has two good pubs within walking distance and it is possible to walk from the cottage for a week or more without having to resort to the car,The cottage is well appointed, comfortable and clean.The caretaker and staff who clean the cottage are very friendly and concerned to see that you enjoy your holiday.

“Great remote location”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2011

If you want somewhere quiet this is a really good location. Three pubs (one good two excellent) in walking distance so we didn't use the self-catering facilities at all... We have stayed in these cottages 3 times now. Well apointed, clean and comfortable. Graet garden. Good location for walking or climbing either from the cottage, from the steam railway or with a short car drive. If you want shops etc it's not for you.

“A Wonderful Introduction to the Lake District”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2011

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.
