“Stunning Cottage Stunning Place”
Reviewed 9 January 2017 for a stay in October 2016

Boot in Eskdale is truly beautiful with excellent high and low level walks from the cottage door. Its a good walk but Scafell is well within range. Hardknott cottage is part of a converted barn with beautiful original features but suoer modern facilities, particularly the bathroom. The cottage is warm, clean and very comfortable and Sky ports kept me in the loop.
Boot boasts two pubs within walking distance and with little light pollution the walk back makes you very small in relation to univers.
Great place...I'll be coming back.

“Peaceful, quiet and idyllic. Nice local pub, friendly local cat.”
Reviewed 16 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Cottage is beautifully decorated and was immaculately clean when we arrived. Cosy and perfect for 2 people. Property owner and housekeeper were very helpful in locating a lost purse after we had left. The local scenery is some of the best I have seen in countless trips to the Lake District, and there is a gorgeous rocky river running right through the back garden. Loved it.

“Great accommodation in perfect Lake District setting”
Reviewed 20 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We spent 2 totally relaxing weeks in and around Boot staying at Hardknott Cottage. Being able to walk straight out onto the fells and explore Eskdale, walk 50 yards to the Boot Inn for real ales and good food and then go back to the comfort of the cottage was a big factor in this.

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.

“Great Stay, Would Highly Recommend”
Reviewed 15 February 2016 for a stay in March 2015

We've just returned from a wonderful few days in Hardknott Cottage. We loved the new bathroom and comfy new kingsize bed with beautiful linen. The views from the cottage were amazing as were the walks from the cottage door. Booking with Greg was easy and the directions and arrival information we really good so it was easy to find our cottage despite our late arrival. Eskdale is stunning, every hike was different and there were loads of walks we ran out of time to do, so we will have to come again. We had some great meals out at the local pubs and hardly ate in the cottage, although everything was there if we wanted to cook in. Great cottage, great location.
