Cottage in Eskdale, Lake District, Cumbria, England - In A Peaceful And Secluded Location Within The Eskdale Valley
About peter altounyan
We purchased Brantrake cottage in the beautiful Eskdale valley for the outstanding views all around, peaceful setting, lovely scenery and wide range of fell and valley walks. Eskdale is a very special place and we are very fortunate to be part of it.
peter altounyan purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why peter altounyan chose Eskdale
Its a quiet area with dramatic scenery and away from the crowds. There is a strong community in the area. The setting for the cottage with fells behind 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.
What makes this Cottage unique
There are numerous walks accessible direct from the cottage ranging from high mountains to low level river walks. Scafell and Scafell Pike are close by as are numerous other high and low fells.

A beautiful location.
The cottage is in a lovely location, quiet, with beautiful views.
Fantastic venue and great cottage
This was a great holiday, made better by the beautiful cottage and excellent service by the owner.
Great little get away, perfect spot for walkers or those wanting to get away from it all.
Clear and easy check in. No problems
lovely remote peaceful location with a nice cottage to stay in.
Interesting old house in a beautiful setting
The house is well equipped and was suitable for our 3 generation party of 4 adults and 2 children. The only problem with the accommodation is the creaking upstairs floors. Wherever, and however lightly, you tread there is loud creaking. This might not bother many people.
The location is lovely, in a peaceful part of the south western Lake Dristict. There are plenty of walks to do in the counrtyside and to local pubs & attractions. The more touristy parts of the Lakes are accessible via the exciting Hardknott and Wrynose passes.
We'd stay again if the owner manages to get Historic England and the National Park to let him fix the floors.
A wonderful break!
We had a fantastic break at Brantrake Cottage, it is set an ideal and picturesque location with beautiful views of the fells.
The cottage itself is super cosy, the log fire was a lovely touch and made for enjoyable cosy nights
We will be returning to Brantrake hopefully very soon as we loved it! Thank you to Peter and Anne for a great break
