Church House sleeps 7 people in three bedrooms and provides luxurious accommodation and ample living space. A study and TV room are available in addition to the sitting room. A beautiful south-facing sun room houses a dining table and L shaped sofa with views across the open fields to the fells beyond. Our usual impeccable high standards, antiques and homely touches adorn Church House.

About the neighbourhood
The valley of Eskdale begins via Hard Knott Pass, a steep mountain road that is one of the most challenging drives in the Lakes. At the valley top is an old Roman fort built between AD120 and AD138, which is open to visitors.
