  • 5 of 5

stayed for 3 nights and couldn't fault the house or location. The house is well equipped and very homely. A mile walk to a great pub with good quality meals, a decent shop is not much further on from the pub. Great access to south Lakeland, but there are some lovely walks nearby. Would stay again for sure.

A perfect getaway in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Brantrake House. It's a lovely and well furnished house, the location is fantastic. Good pub and shop nearby. A great location for getting into the mountains. Great value - a place we'd definitely think about staying in again.

Nearest Train
0.5 Miles
ravenglass on network rail eskdale green on steam
Car: necessary

Its a very quiet location with dramatic scenery and away from the crowds. The setting for the House with fells all around and views across to Muncaster Fell and beyond is very beautiful as are the sunsets. The local area also benefits from a micro climate where the sun shines more often than further inland. There are many walks from this location ranging from gentle riverside low level and to the highest and most dramatic in England.


The seaside fishing village of Ravenglass is approximately 3 miles away


use of a car is recommended. The nearest railway station is Ravenglass approximately 3 miles away or eskdale green on the eskdale to ravenglass steam railway just half a mile away


Eskdale Green is approximately 1 mile away and has a village shop with newspapers and day to day provisions.

Broughton in Furness is approximately 20 minutes drive and has a range of interesting local shops including post office, butcher, bakers/cafe, restaurant, greengrocer/delicatessen, outdoor clothing and petrol station.

Gosforth is some 15 minutes drive also has a wide range of shops and places to eat
