This beautiful 500 year old, traditional Grade II listed cottage is located in the village of Boot, right next to the 17th Century Packhorse bridge, in the Eskdale Valley. To suit the quirky name, the cottage has lovely exposed stone walls, and original dark wood beams in the bedroom, giving a cosy and traditional feel that’s perfect for a romantic getaway or a break for a small family. Stepping into the cottage gives a wonderful traditional feel, combined with modern features for the perfect break.
The beautiful open plan lounge and dining area has high ceilings, comfortable chairs and an original beam across the patio doors, with a flat-screen TV for those relaxing moments.
A dining table completes the area.
The kitchen is compact, but has all you need to create tasty meals, including a gas oven and hob, microwave and a fridge.
Taking the wood-railed staircase leads to a lovely tiled bathroom with a traditional slipper bath, a shower cubicle, WC and hand basin.
Then be prepared to be wowed by the master double bedroom, with its enormous king-sized bed, charming original beams, exposed stonework and wooden furniture.
There is also space for a small Z bed to sleep a child. Outside, you’ll find a neat shared walled garden, with a dining table and bench set for taking in the amazing views of Esk Fell, while you eat or enjoy a glass of wine later in the evening.
And if you do bring your child with you, they’ll be perfectly safe playing here. Stroll along to either of the village pubs for amazing local beers and food, and explore the village of Boot, with its village shop that’s open in summer, and you can find all of that within 150 yards of your cottage, along with Boot Mill, which is a museum and England’s oldest still working mill.
If you love to hike, you can take a trip up Scafell Pike and explore the local rivers and woodlands. Exploring further along the Eskdale valley, you’ll find sandy beaches on the Solway coast, with Hard Knot Pass, Langdale, Wrynose and Grasmere within easy reach.
Enjoy a trip on the Ravenglass and Eskdale Steam Railway with amazing scenery right through to the sea at Ravenglass fishing village, or take in a more sedate visit to Muncaster Castle and Gardens. Wrynose Cottage is a charming place to stay for a romantic break and a perfect base for exploring the Western Lake District.

About the location
Eskdale is one of the most beautiful valleys in the Lake District, often referred to by the locals as ‘True Lake District’. Situated in the quieter side of the National Park, it has a peaceful tranquillity that makes it especially appealing to those who want to avoid the crowds. The nearby village of Eskdale Green consists of a scattering of cottages, some farm dwellings and a number of outstanding traditional English pubs serving real ales and good food. An area relatively unknown to many Lakeland visitors, this great location boasts a skyline dominated by the towering peaks of Scafell - England's highest peak, as well as Great Gable, Hard Knott, Harter Fell and Muncaster Fell, whilst the nearby stunning valleys of Eskdale, Wasdale, Ennerdale and Dunnerdale provide breathtaking and ever-changing scenery to be enjoyed throughout the year. The valley is notable as being one of few major valleys in the Lake District not to have its own lake, although several tarns are perched above the valley sides. Local attractions include Muncaster Castle, the World Owl Centre and the Ravenglass to Eskdale miniature railway, one of the most beautiful train journeys imaginable. With both beautiful Wastwater - the deepest lake in the country and St Olaf's - the smallest church, amongst the many well known landmarks in this awe inspiring and beautiful area.
