Most people arrive by car. By train: go to Lancaster and then take the coastal train to Ravenglass and then either take the "tourist" steam train to Dalegarth station at Boot, or take a taxi.
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.
Hardknott Pass is England's steepest road and a great drive in good weather conditions. Less than halfway up on the Eskdale side is the well-preserved Hardknott Roman Fort. This is an absolute "must" visit and the views are breathtaking whatever the weather, especially from just beyond the northwest gate.
Stone Circles - Within a short walk, on the moor above Boot are the 5,000 year old Neolithic and 3,000 year old Bronze Age stone circles. These are an archaeological gem and it is amazing that they were built so long ago.
Muncaster Castle was voted best tourist attraction in England in 2004. It lies at the gateway to Eskdale, easily accessed by car or the steam railway and a short walk. It is 800 years old, full of interesting features, is supposedly haunted, has spectacular and colourful gardens and is the major rescue centre for the World Owl Trust with many rare and beautiful owls.
We even have our own waterfall plunge pool in the village!
- Swim in the crystal clear waters of the River Esk and Whillan Beck.
The Ravenglass and Eskdale narrow gauge steam railway is one of England's most beautiful train journeys and it has its terminus just ¼ mile our Cottages. This is a very popular attraction and a great day out for all the family.
Eskdale Mill just over the packhorse bridge from Bridge End Farm is England's oldest working twin-wheel corn mill on the site of a Roman mill. Take a trip back in time to a museum like no other. It is on our doorstep and we thoroughly recommend a visit.
Welcome tray with tea, coffee, homemade biscuits and fresh milk in the fridge.
From the SOUTH depart the M6 at Junction 36. The quickest route is to Broughton in Furness then through Ulpha and over Birker Moor.
