  • "Lovely spacious property great for family getaway."

    Lovely views. Well kitted out. Hot tub was lovely, even in winter. Owner called ahead and helpful. Kids loved seeing the train at the end of the garden. Only thing good to be mindful of is that wider bigger vehicles won't be able to make it up the drive to the house and will have to walk from little station, as mentioned in info: if I doubt park up at green station and go check it out before proceeding up the lane. Hubby thought he could do it and then on realisation we couldn't, turning around after train track without slipping into the wall was managed, but hairy! We didn't attempt it again! Not far at all to green car park, but ensure all your party good enough on their pins to manage. Linking arms would be tricky as is a track and can be slippy on the earth in the middle if muddy.

  • "Although I appreciate the reason for an early check-out time, we all felt that 9am was too early to all use the bathroom, eat breakfast and clean up to the standard required."

    10am is much more reasonable, especially given the property only has 2 x bathrooms for anything up to 9 guests. The location is amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed our break. Thankyou

  • "You couldn't ask or hope for a better experience."

    Miles the owner was helpful beyond measure, even going out of his way to purchase an extra casserole dish for us! The cottage was superb, in a stunning location, it was very spacious, the beds were comfy, it had character & soul. We really loved the artwork & pictures on the walls too. The location itself was fantastic. Lovely walks from the house itself, and the little steam train passing by was the icing on the cake for our 3 year old who thought it was magical! I honestly couldn't speak highly enough about every aspect of Peel Place Noddle. Thank you Miles!

  • "I stayed at Peel Place with some friends for my birthday and it was a great experience."

    The photos do not do the place justice, the cottage is beautiful inside and out. It was beautifully decorated with Christmas decorations which was a nice touch. Its very spacious and we made full use of the open fire. Unfortunately Cumbria was hit badly by a storm on our first night so the power was out, so it whilst it was nice n warm in the lounge it was quite cold upstairs but that couldn't be helped. But it came back on the next night. Actually I enjoyed when the power was out, we stayed by the fire and played board games, truly an experience I won't forget. The hot tub was the cherry on top, we made full use of it when we could and it was lovely watching the stars. Overall this is a great place to stay if you love the countryside like me. There's lots to see and do, I recommend visiting Muncaster castle, it has some great views! We did a little pub crawl also, great pubs with great food and drinks. We had dinner at bower house inn which was lovely. The owner Miles was very helpful and made sure we were okay during our stay. I would definitely like to stay here again, had a great time!

  • "Lovely large holiday home."

    Ideal for families. Our family had a lovely relaxing stay (2 adults 2 x teenagers 1 x 5yr, 1 dog). There would have been plenty of room for the additional 5 guest (covid allowing) without the house feeling crowded. High lights included the hot tub and the open fire both of which were well used. The large garden offered space to play for the kids and dog alongside fabulous views.

  • "The cottage was excellently equipped with everything needed during our stay."

    There are some lovely places to walk to locally or you can travel further afield. We also ate out in both the Bower and Boot Inn pub and can highly recommend the food. The Hot tub was a lovely addition and the views whilst in it are stunning. We were very lucky with the weather and had sun everyday which was an added bonus. We throughly enjoyed our stay at Peel Place Noddle and will return, thank you.

  • "We loved this house, clean, spacious & well equipped it is in a great location in the Eskdale valley for walking and exploring the area."

    Good WiFi, smart TV, an open fire & a lovely hot tub. Off the road down a small lane so very peaceful. The steam railway runs in front of the house which is fun. The owner was easy to contact & very responsive. For example the Amazon Firestick had gone missing & he arranged for one to be delivered next day. Lovely pubs in the area, tried The Woolpack, Ratty Arms and The Bower House - all good. The shop in Eskdale Green is well stocked.

    Miles the owner of the property was very apologetic but the situation was out of his control. The few days we did spend there was so relaxing and lovely. There is everything you could possibly need in the house and nothing was too much trouble for Miles before, during and after our holiday. We are definitely hoping to return as soon as possible.

  • "Peel Place Noddle provided us the perfect location for a family getaway in a rainy March!"

    ! The house is a great size with 2 large reception rooms, the kitchen is big with a lot of storage and a big dining table, this was great for family breakfasts. The living and dining room also had a dining table, which we used on Saturday night and easily fit 10 people around, although it was quite cosy. We used the fire both days of the weekend, there was just enough fire wood and kindling for this we didn't need to go into the extra stash in the utility room. For a longer booking it would be needed. The kitchen was stocked with alot of crockery and cutlery, I would advise to take your own cling film, foil etc as we forgot these. There was 1 towel per person, no extra for the hot tub or to use whilst the others are drying, however Miles did inform me of a dryer we could use. The hot tub was great, nice and warm and clean when we arrived!! We used it both days. Unfortunately the King George pub was closed whilst we were there, but the sign outside said it would be opening in Easter, so we used The Bower House Inn, which was about a mile away, we walked, it was lovely. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. Small note, take your own toilet roll and soap, there was not enough even for 2 nights.

    The location and house were both lovely Hot tub not working (one of the reasons we chose this location) so rather disappointing

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry the hot tub was not working for your stay, we can assure you the owner made every effort to get it fixed for you, but unfortunately this was not possible. We hope the compensation for the lack of the facility was appropriate. Thank you again for your valued feedback. Property Owner

    The added benefit of the coal fire was a bonus. The view from the house was excellent. Hot tub was well used by all. Mind you an overhead cover would be nice. The local pub (King George lV) food was superb and the size of the helpings was amazing. If I had any concerns it would be the width of the roads all around the area. Locals drive too fast and expect you to stop or reverse to a passing place. Plenty to see and do in the area.

  • "I booked Peel Place Noddle for my 50th birthday to spend Friday to Sunday with a group of my girlfriends and it was such a lovely place to spend it."

    The cottage has very spacious bedrooms, the beds are extremely comfortable and clean and the kitchen is huge and a great place to gather! There are three toilets but only two showers in the cottage (one in the main bathroom and one ensuite attached to a single room) which when you have a big group staying is a little like a military operation but we managed! The owner, Miles, was at the end of the phone for all our queries and even when we couldn't start the fire on the first night, as we had no firelighters or kindling, he sorted his lovely neighbour, Adrian, to pop round and get it going for us - what an absolute star! The hot tub was wonderful and warm and a lovely experience stargazing in a bikini and bobble hat! At the bottom of the garden there is the Ravensglass railway line which we did on the Saturday morning to visit their advertised Christmas market however that was a tad disappointing as it was a tent with about 8 stalls in it and no mulled wine (what's that all about?!) and the village only has a post office and two pubs, but the villagers were so welcoming. We visited the Ratty Arms which was a lovely cosy pub, and on the way chatted to one of the locals, Anne, to ask where was the shop as I'd forgotten my toothbrush and she subsequently turned up in the pub with a new one for me! (Anne now has a Bacardi put behind the bar because one random act of kindness deserves another!) We had an evening meal on the Saturday night at the King George IV (a short walk away and do-able in heels!) and the Landlord and chef were so welcoming and we had a great night, nothing was too much trouble for them and they even provided us all with free shots - which to be fair tasted like de-icer but it's the thought that counts! All in all we had a lovely stay and would recommend it.

  • "Great property, extremely well equipped and comfortable."

    Location is really great for accessing the S West Lake District area. Great walks on the doorstep. I had an absolutely fabulous birthday weekend there with my family. An ice tray or 2 in the freezer would be good. However local pub kindly sold me a bag of ice to chill my birthday bubbly / cool the G&T's. There ought to be a very obvious statement on the property description about NOT following the SATNAV to get there. My fault for not reading the Directions link properly .... we drove over Hardknock pass in the dark.... "Hardknott Pass is known as one of Britain's most challenging roads. This single track road right through the middle of the Lake District National Park, in the region of Cumbria, England, it’s a heart-stopping series of sharp and narrow hairpin bends. It’s said to be the steepest road in England with a gradient of 1 in 3 (about 33%)." Also a mention of the narrow stone pillars on the drive with a suggestion to park at Eskdale Green would be helpful. Our very wide Skoda Superb Estate did make it over the pass and down the drive, but only just. A wonderful property though and I definitely hope to return.

  • "This is a fine, comfortable house, in a good position, with delightful views."

    It is full of charm and character. However, we discovered a number of minor faults with the house, such as a sink not having a plug, which slightly spoiled the overall impression. Also (as mentioned in the previous review), the sash-window frame in the single bedroom has been painted over, meaning that the window cannot be opened. (I left a note for the ‘Cottage Manager’ detailing the various faults, in case they are not already aware). Despite these minor faults, we very much enjoyed our stay.

    The house is easy walking distance from the local shop and the pub, and is right next to the miniature railway station. Excellent for walkers with a utility room for mucky boots and a hot tub for aching limbs. I would recommend bringing a pair of binoculars, the area is alive with birdsong and perfect for spotting birds. Newly installed central heating kept us all very warm too. Thank you for a super holiday.

  • "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.

About the location

ESKDALE GREEN

Coniston 10 miles.

The small village of Eskdale Green sits amongst beautiful Lakeland countryside and consists of a scattering of cottages, some farm dwellings and a number of outstanding traditional English pubs serving 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 also within easy reach, this stunning location will have visitors returning time and time again.
