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.

Great accommodation in a beautiful spot
We arrived for a bit of R&R after a stressful few weeks where the youngest daughter had been in intensive care. She hands been booked to come with us, but a quick email to the owners and she came with us. For her, it was a chance to recharge her batteries (whilst completing some college assignments). On arrival, we had a lovely cake awaiting us - thank you very much. The accommodation was excellent, location excellent and unusually Eskdale lakes weather was excellent too!! Some great walks direct from out door, local steam railway passing us - no noise other than the odd toot off the steam train. Overall, a fantastic trip, quiet, relaxing, great vies and great food at the Boot Inn. Certainly recommend this place to anyone.

Clean and well laid out property
The Chalet was clean with virtually everything that you need. It was warm and there was space for everyone to hang out in the wet weather. The WiFi went down well.
The Chalets, Eskdale
Attractive, quiet location with extensive gardens and river.
Excellent walking close by as well as the Ravenglass Railway which gives access to more walks.
Good quality pubs and restaurants within walking distance and more just a short drive away.
Cottage is equipped to a high stndard with a very effective central heating system.
The only minor lack is that just 2 bath towels are provided for the week. A hand towel for the kitchen and one for the bathroom would be appropriate and in keeping with the standard of the chalet.
