The Chalets are in the beautiful valley of Eskdale, in the heart of the Lake District National Park. Eskdale can provide you with a new mountain to climb each day and just as many gentle riverside strolls and valley walks. Discover the secret tarn, the quaint church or the stunning waterfalls at Stanley Ghyll. The Chalets are set in a beautiful riverside location close to the village of Boot. Boot village offers traditional Inns, one of the oldest working watermills and a village shop. Eskdale is surrounded by the biggest, deepest and steepest in England. Sca Fell, England’s highest Mountain, can be conquered in a day from The Chalets. Wast water, England’s deepest lake is a beautiful place to spend the day and is just 10 minutes drive away. The Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway, locally known as La’al Ratty, winds it’s way down through the valley to the sea, from Eskdale to Ravenglass, perhaps England’s prettiest train journey.

Why lisa borrowdale Philip Hayden chose Ulpha
We fell in love with The Lake District many years ago and it was a dream to have a property here. Little did we know that we would make it happen in our 30's. Eskdale is the most beautiful, peaceful location you could hope to live in and this makes it a special retreat for holiday makers. We are surrounded by the Lakeland fells and yet far from the madding crowd. Climb a different mountain every day, amble along the river and seek refreshments in one of 4 lovely local pubs or spend the day in our mature riverside south facing gardens.
What makes this Chalet unique
The Chalets can provide you with high quality, four-star, holiday cottages in Eskdale. We have 4 cottages, close to the village of Boot. Each Cottage has two bedrooms and is spacious and beautifully furnished. Set in large, mature riverside gardens on the banks of the river Esk. One chalet is able to accommodate a very well behaved house trained dog. The large living/dining area is a great family space. Books, DVD’s, games and magazines, comfy sofas, discrete lighting and an LCD TV with DVD player make the living room is cosy and homely. The fully equipped kitchen provides you with everything you need to cater for yourselves on holiday, whether it is cheese on toast or a full Sunday roast. BBQ, bike hire, washing machine, tumble drier and drying room.

Modern, clean and tidy. Beautiful views and lovely gardens. Great for families.
Stayed here twice now and will definitely use again. Friendly welcome, stunning surroundings, walking distance of two good pubs with great food, and to the village shop (not much food provision) with lovely ice cream. Boot (nearest village) also has a small and charming Mill museum. Worth a visit. Walks directly from the Chalets include flat Eskdale trail following the river (can even go one way on the little stream train), numerous local waterfalls, longer walks up to the many nearby fells and tarns (and even Sca Fell) and the Roman Fort at Hardnott Pass (a third pub in this direction slightly further along the river from Boot). The gardens themselves offer space to play, eat out and barbq. Property also offers drying space in the boot room. You can easily stay here for a week without moving the car but if you do venture out Wastwater is stunning (20 minutes) and Keswick is the nicest of the towns in the Lakes (40 minutes). Whinlatter Forest on Derwent Water (near Keswick) offers mountain bike trails and good walking trails with fun activities for kids. Westlakes Adventures based at Boot, close to the Chalets also offer paddle boarding, kayaking and gill climbing.
New Year in Beckfoot
Warm welcome on an icy day and a difficult journey. Chalet was warm.
And well appointed. It was very clean . The setting was beautiful and peaceful. Would definitely return !
Third stay at the lovely Chalets.
Perfect place for us. Out the door and on the fells in minutes. Comfortable, clean and well equipped. Will be back.
Reasonably priced, lovely and clean, excellent location, Eskdale is one of the loveliest parts of the Lakes.. 15 minutes walking distance to Boot, and lots of lovely walks, Lal Ratty narrow guage railway, suitable for family holidays and seasoned walkers. And a combination of the above!
A beautiful location and a wonderful holiday home.
Only three nights this time but we hope to go back.
A trip on La'al Ratty, the Steam Yacht Gondola, excellent pub in The Brook House Inn.
Fantastic to see all the birds feeding on thebalcony
Fabulous setting for a great holiday
This was my third attempt at trying to get into the Chalets in Boot having twice previously failed to get a booking for the time we were free. The chalets are very roomy, well equipped and have the most gorgeous garden which you can enjoy from your own balcony seat, or stroll around the amazing rhododendrons along the two rivers and listen to the sheep and watch a large number of birds. I can't recommend this highly enough. There are two nice pubs in walking distance, excellent wifi coverage. We had 4 walks and a trip on the railway without needing to use the car. We were also bowled over by Muncaster Castle, which is great all day visit.
We are just 15 minutes away from the beautiful sandy beaches of Cumbria’s West Coast.
We can be accessed by car using the A595 from North or South.
Or by train taking a mainline train to Ravenglass. From here we can collect you, or you can take the La’al Ratty steam train to Beckfoot Halt station and then a 30 seconds walk!
We are 10 minutes walk from Boot Village. 5 minutes drive from Eskdale Green. You can access all areas of the Lake District from these popular holiday cottages. Most of the areas can be reached within an hours drive. Beatrix Potter’s cottage; Mountain bike on the forest tracks at Grizedale; Shop in Ambleside, boats trips on Windermere and Coniston Water, Visit Wordsworth's Cottage in Grasmere, Keswick, South Lakeland Wild Animal park and of course the beautiful beaches on the West coast.
