General Info

This lovely, detached cottage is surrounded by breathtaking scenery in the charming village of Eskdale in the Lake District National Park, with the La’al Ratty Railway running by the garden. This spacious Eskdale cottage is the perfect base for groups of friends and families seeking to explore this beautiful area of the Lake District National Park, with easy access to the west coast and the many lakes in this glorious region. This wonderful Eskdale cottage has five bedrooms, which include two king-size double rooms, and a single room with an en-suite shower room. Whip up delicious, home-cooked meals in the farmhouse-style kitchen and sit down to discuss the day’s adventures around the dining table. On blustery winter nights, retire to the sitting room and toast your toes by the roaring open fire, or curl up by the warming woodburning stove in the snug, and catch up on some reading. From the sitting room of this Eskdale cottage, doors lead out into luscious, established gardens, with views stretching across the stunning surrounding fells. Let the children play in the enclosed gardens on bright afternoons, while you lie back and soak up the summer sun. You may even hear the sounding of the steam engine whistle before it hurries past. Sitting at the foot of the Hardknott Pass, the area surrounding this Eskdale cottage is extremely beautiful. Eskdale offers a selection of excellent pubs and golfing opportunities, with kayaking, ghyll scrambling, and canoeing all available locally too. Take on the challenge of Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain, and discover the spectacular Wastwater, England’s deepest lake, both within easy reach. Take your camera with you as you explore this special region, with picture perfect opportunities at every turn. With The Green station on the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway, just a minute’s walk from this Eskdale cottage, younger guests will be delight in travelling up the line to Dalegarth at the foot of Scafell Pike.

Peel Place Noddle was huge and comfortable. The property is in a beautiful location and has a pretty garden. It was perfect for a family of mixed generations.

A relaxed, spacious and comfortable place - there is an informal, family feel which really suited us. The garden was great for children to run around, and the miniature trains running past were an exciting extra feature.

We loved the homely feel and the brightness and airiness about the house. Due to the layout of the house, every window faced out towards the mountains and the sun poured in nearly all day. The house itself was very well equipped with more than enough blankets, cutlery, crockery, towels etc.

A very relaxing feel to this property and in a great location to explore the western side of the Lakes. With 8 adults and 2 small children there was plenty of space for all.

Lovely house which was within a lovely location, perfect for touring.

The location is spectacular. All of the visitors said that the property was homely, comfortable, worked well for our requirements and was clean. We voted to return if we are able. The fires and provision of adequate fuel was much appreciated and enjoyed. Thank you for the welcome pack.

Fantastic accommodation and wonderful scenery.

Beautiful rugged location - phenomenal house. Owner couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating.

Stunning and peaceful location with a hot tub!

This is a great retreat for a large family or a group of friends looking to make their own entertainment and enjoy the natural beauty of Cumbria. This isn't a top quality rental, so if that's your expectation look elsewhere, however - if you are looking for a homely, comfortable, affordable holiday home which is in a beautiful location with lots of space and the bonus of an open-air hut tub and a real fire in the lounge then this could be ideal. Peel Place Noddle was once a family home and much of it remains unchanged from these days. That has a sweetness, and if you can embrace this perspective and not be too critical you will enjoy every moment at 'the Noddle'. There is a beautiful, spacious, safe and enclosed garden area which includes parking for 3/4 cars. Beware that vans may struggle due to narrow pillars on the entrance to the track. The wood-burner is located in a small 'snug' with a 2-seater sofa. The main lounge area has an open fire which needs lots of fuel to warm up the room in the winter due to the large size of the open-plan lounge and dining area. The hot-tub is located on a wooden decking, just off the main lounge/diner, which is ideal for popping in and out without getting too cold. The kitchen is large with a hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. If you enjoy cooking you may wish to pack your own knives to avoid disappointment. One family bathroom plus a downstairs toilet and a single en-suite room may be a struggle if you are not close family and friends and you manage to fill the place. There is free wifi, a TV and access to a CD player. A mini-railway runs along the bottom of the garden in the main season and there is a pub and a shop within a 10 minute walk (in opposite directions). It's a dog friendly rental and could be suitable for children depending on their ages. There are some lovely walks from the doorstep. The 'drying room' is a good feature to make sure your boots and jackets are ready for the next day regardless of the conditions. I'd be happy to consider a return trip if we were staying in the area.

Lovely house in a beautiful valley

Just back from our second stay in this home from home but in the most beautiful valley. The house boasts a gorgeous garden, hot tub and the Ratty (narrow gauge steam train) runs past, what's not to love!!! We are three generations, three dogs group that love walking the fells then hitting the pub for a bite to eat and a couple of drinks, you are spoilt for choice. If shopping yours thing Eskdale isn't for you but if you love beautiful scenery, wildlife, walking, then this is the place.

A real home from home

Just got back from a wonderful week in Eskdale Green, the house is great for a large group, there were 9 adults and 1 child in our party, the house is good value for money and now also boasts a hot tub. We found the owner extremely helpful and easy to contact. A great base for exploring the local area and surrounding areas, with a short drive to Wasdale Head for a hike up Scafell Pike. Would also recommend the local pub King George IV for great bar meals and ales.
