A lovely cottage; worked very well for a group of 8 friends. 25m from the pub and not much further from walking straight out into the National Park. Great walks nearby and good location for Scafell Pike and Wastwater too.

Spacious,well provided for accommodation. Very snug. Great surroundings. Loved Boot. Ate two nights at Boot Inn. Loved by all the family. Great walk to Scafell. Esk Trail really only suited to serious mountain bikes. The lanes were quiet enough to cycle on. Got the train back from Ravenglass with the bikes. Memorable. We shall return.

He offered great suggestions for walks in this great park. There was a lovely pub serving delicious food only a few steps away. We had a wonderful holiday at this magnificent property. I...
