About an hours drive from the more touristy spots of Bowness-On-Windermere and Rydal, Eskdale is full of raw and wild charm. Bordering this valley, walkers will find many challenging climbs including Scafell Pike, Hard Knott and Crinkle Crags. A stone’s throw away visitors will also find the stunning Wast Water; possibly one of the most stunning lakes in the National Park. The only corn mill still in use can also be found in the stunning valley.

"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."

"I thought I couldn’t experience the Lake District without being super fit, experienced in survival or being in herds of tourists like ourselves but here you are situated right among it without effort and it’s all to yourselves. From Broughton in Furness the 3 miles to the cottage passes by a river, bracken hillsides, Herdwick sheep camouflaged amongst the crags. Then you see the cottage down the track surrounded by numerous crags, over the babbling beck - it’s heartwarming. Rain it might but the large Arga and stove keep the house cosy, a good book or game day and the internet is better than expected. Bring food initially and then Broughton has a top notch butchers for that slow roast in your oven and a grocers next door. Pub meals are good in Broughton. Theres a pretty garden at the back so you know where the kids/dogs are or they can play being in the land of Mordor, with sheep, it’s not unlike it. Recommend sensible slippers for the wooden staircase but there is rails and a stair gate at the top. The owners ensured our bed was the height of comfort by fitting a new mattress topper after I raised a concern from a previous review. Bath and shower great and downstairs loo so there’s no banging on the door. If you are uncertain about this holiday home don’t be, if you appreciate the peace and the real world formed by nature, this is it, it’s a door to explore Eskdale and further with sense, sometimes you can be reminded the elements are in charge here, prepare navigation well, we combined good old paper maps with mobile apps!"

"The location provides seclusion which we loved. There are three pubs all within walking distance. We took our own food, etc so didn't need the shops. The location is a great base for exploring the Western Lakes. We enjoyed visiting Muncaster Castle and we went on the steam train experience which was great. We also explored the coast (Seascale, St Bees and Whitehaven) and went to Coniston Lake. We have mixed feelings about the cottage. All bedding provided and was immaculate and we appreciated the electric bed warmer. You have to take your own towels. The cottage is pet friendly and we didn't think fabric seating was ideal for dogs rubbing past. There was a lot of furniture and we felt some was unnecessary and generally downstairs would benefit from a deep clean. The access to the beach was disappointing as it was a ladder and therefore no good for the dogs and less mobile humans would struggle. When reading the description we got the impression we had to pay the fuel supplement as we would have no form of heat. We did send a check the week before however this was unnecessary as the cottage has an excellent combi boiler, the fuel supplement is for the open fire material so we felt duped. Another issue was the rubbish. Outside the cottage was a wheelie bin and crates however some of these were nearly full and there were no instructions as to what day we needed to move them further onto the road for collection. Broadband/wifi excellent."

"The cottage and location were lovely, however I was disappointed at the cleanliness as some of the rooms were quite dusty and it was obvious no one had stayed in the property for a while. Towels should have been included but we had to hunt for these, they hadn't been left out, unsure if they were forgotten? They were all in one wardrobe folded up but only bath towels no matching hand towels! I'd arrived a few days earlier than my family so could prepare the rooms and advised people to bring hand towels with them! The house was lovely and warm and was very well equipped. There was a welcome folder that was falling apart and gave very little information but some maps and walking suggestions. The location is picturesque and it's lovely and peaceful. The hot tub was an added bonus and was clean on arrival. However after a few days use it had clouded over and myself, my boyfriend and my sister found rashes on our backs and underarms when we got home Sunday night so unsure what had gone to wrong to cause that! If these niggles could be corrected it wouldn't stop me from staying again as the location was good, the house and all bedrooms a great size and if suited our needs for 4 generations for my 30th celebrations with family."

"We found Broadwater Farmhouse very spacious, warm, clean and well maintained and it suited our needs for the occasion of a special family celebration very nicely. We appreciated the welcome pack. There were one or two minor niggles though when we arrived (eg. we had to ask for more mugs as when we arrived there were only 6 mugs for a property which sleeps 10 and no baby bath towel was provided even though it was requested or a hand towel for the downstairs toilet. Also it would have been nice to have had a few dish washer tablets provided for immediate use, some extra refuse sacks and a few spare loo rolls.) However we were aware that the owners had a family emergency to deal with just before we arrived which probably made the change-over difficult and so some of these matters in normal circumstances may have been dealt with.As our family celebration will not be repeated we are unlikely to visit Broadwater Farm again but we are happy to recommend the property which although somewhat isolated is well suited for a large number and is a good base for exploring the western edge of the Lake District (as long as you are willing to face the adventure of the long unmade road to the farm!)"
