Stayed here with my son for three days to do a bit of exploring around Eskdale , Hardknott pass and Wrynose Pass, we normally have camped at the National Trust site in Wasdale over recent years. The Boot Inn is in a ideal situation to have as a Base camp for tackling the fells from a different perspective. Nice Pub with large beer gardens, some nice real ales on, food was typical pub grub but hit the spot after eight or nine hours on the fells, our room was basic, room 3, shower room, toilet, very pokey and think the mirror over the sink must have been fitted by a very short person. Staff were ok and friendly enough, we stayed in July 2014, I was told that the owners of the Boot were selling the Pub very soon, in fact a man was around taking a infantry of the property while we were there, so if we go again it could be a completely different experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Boot Inn nestles in the tiny hamlet of Boot, deep in the heart of the Eskdale Valley. Within easy walking distance of The English Lake Districts largest and most majestic fells, yet only 7 miles from the sea. We provide first class food, drink and accommodation with nine letting bedrooms, bar, conservatory and snug areas, we also have ample car parking and a large beer garden. The inn itself has been catering for the hungry and thirsty travellers since the 17th century, offering a selection of traditionally kept cask ales, fine wines, sprits, continental beers, soft drinks and excellent food. At the Boot Inn we endeavour to source as many of our ingredients and most of our produce locally including the almost legendary cumberland sausages. Everybody is welcome included our four legged friends. With real log fires for those chilly autumn, winter or even summer days, a warm welcome is always guaranteed. The valley provides a wealth of opportunity for outdoor activity with Scafell, Great Gable, Harter Fell, Bowfelll, Crinkle Crags and many others all within walking distance without having to cross a single road! Cyclists can pitt themselves against the Hardknott and Wrynose passes, the steepest section of road in England leading to the Duddon Valley and Langdale. For those of a more spiritual and historical interest there is to be found the remains of a Roman Fort in the upper reaches of the valley and the beautiful 14th century church of St Catherines only a short stroll away. Slightly further afield attractions such as Muncaster Castle and Eskdale Golf Course are close by. ... more less
