“Lovely quiet cottage in a beautiful valley with great walks”
Reviewed 19 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

person found this review helpful

Scafell Cottage is beautifully located in Boot in Eskdale. The adventure starts when you arrive by steam train (yes, really). It's quiet but not isolated, with two pubs nearby (book if you want a table). The cottage is well equipped and very well insulated - we had to turn the heating off in April! The kitchen and dining area are quite small but nine of us fitted in fine, and the sitting area and bedrooms are comfortable. Suggest to bring your supplies, or order them for delivery, as not many shops nearby.

How wonderful that you joined the ever increasing number of guests arriving by steam train. Since your visit we have installed a beautiful new kitchen with larger appliances and two fridges and other space saving solutions. Plus we have had a bespoke oak table built for the dining area to give more room. The local Eskdale Stores are open 7 days a week and stock most things if guests run out of supplies. Thank you for your lovely review. Best wishes from the team at Select Cottages.

“A great cottage in a superb location. Would definitely recommend!”
Reviewed 31 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Scafell cottage is placed in an ideal walkers locations, with many scenic routes surrounding it. The pubs in Boot have a great atmosphere and tasty pub grub - which is perfect after a long walk! The cottage itself is very clean and fully equipped with kitchen utensils, bedding and board games! The owners of the cottage have great communications and willing to ask the many questions that you'll throw at them. Overall a great stay and would highly recommend the Boot cottage a visit.

“Beautiful, full of character and charm.”
Reviewed 14 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We were a group of 8 adults staying in Scafell cottage for 3 nights. We picked this area for its nearness to Scafell Pike for climbing. We had plenty of room, there are four bedrooms which would actually sleep nine and 3 bathrooms, 2 of which are ensuite. The cottage is beautiful, full of character and charm and spotlessly clean. It has a back lawn which is for a few cottages with a river running through and a lovely place to sit with the mountains as a backdrop, absolutely beautiful. Also which I thought was a lovely touch they had plenty of games for children in the presses and plenty of books to keep everyone happy. The Boot Inn is a must too, gorgeous food and a very friendly welcome, loved it. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again. Something to be aware of though the area is remote and phone coverage is limited (maybe not a bad thing when away for a few days).

Perfect for our group of eight (three families). Lovely valley and close to good food in Boot. Hiked up the back side of Scafell, Burnmoor Tarn and Stanley Force. Golf nearby as well. Narrow gauge railway from Ravenglass and Muncaster Castle as well. May has lovely weather!
