Eskdale Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
Group accommodation for 16 people in the beautiful valley of Eskdale
Fisherground Farmhouse holiday cottage offers self catering accommodation in the heart of Eskdale, one of the most tranquil valleys of the Lake District. It is one of our largest properties, offering comfortable and spacious group accommodation for up to 16 people.
With a large south facing garden and fantastic views of the surrounding fells, Fisherground is an ideal base for exploring the mountains, rivers, lakes and tarns of this beautiful part of Cumbria. Eskdale is a wonderful starting point for hundreds of walks, either on the fells or along the banks of the River Esk, which flows from Scafell at the top of the valley down to the estuary at Ravenglass, an old fishing village complete with a ruined Roman bath-house.
The famous Ravenglass & Eskdale Miniature Railway runs along the valley, its steam trains making the leisurely seven-mile journey down to the sea. There are also five pubs in the valley.
Accommodation summary: The hallway leads to the fully equipped kitchen to the left - with dishwasher, a range with eight gas rings and two electric ovens, microwave, and fridge with freezer compartment. There is a washing machine and tumble drier in the room under the stairs, as well as a second fridge and a separate upright freezer.
There is a separate dining room with a large table that easily seats 16 and CD/MP3 stereo system.
The sitting room is large and spacious with an open fire, TV, video and DVD player.
The dining room leads to two downstairs bedrooms (one twin - which has a double bed and a single bed - and one set of bunks) and a bathroom.
Upstairs there are five further bedrooms - four doubles and a twin. There are two further bathrooms upstairs - one with a bath, one with a shower. There is an additional twin bedroom in the attic which is reached via the twin room on the first floor.
The kitchen downstairs leads to a conservatory.
The garden outside is large and faces south and has a barbecue area (if you use the barbecue, we ask that you clean it thoroughly afterwards for the enjoyment of the next guests at Fisherground). We do ask you to consider the neighbours at Fisherground and keep noise outside to a minimum after 11pm.
We are happy to accept one (well behaved) dog per booking but we do ask that they are not let into any of the bedrooms and that you clean up any mess that they may leave in the garden.
There is parking at the back of the farmhouse with ample room for five cars.
Upstairs in one of the outbuildings outside is a games room. Downstairs there is room to store bikes, canoes and other outdoor equipment. These rooms are locked for extra security.
