The property

Eskdale Green 5.3 miles.

In a little-known area of the Lake District, near to the River Esk, is the village of Ravenglass, where you can find this mid-Victorian property, as beautiful and classic on the inside as the outside, High Eskholme.

Ideally suited to be a home-from-home for a larger family, or somewhere to host a reunion of old friends ready to take on the peaks in the Lakes.

Once you have pulled up to this idyllic property, head indoors, stepping onto the flagstone floor with the first room on your left being the snug, perfect for nestling down with a good book for some quiet time.

Further along the hall is the main sitting room, where you can light up the open fire on a cold evening and feel as though you've gone back in time in this historic building, while using the Sky TV package to decide on the evening's entertainment.

Keep up with tradition and sit around the dining table for dinner, lovingly prepared in the stylish kitchen with a range of integrated fittings and appliances at your fingertips.

Take a few steps down from the kitchen/diner into the boot room to find the utility room next door containing the washing machine and the back door leading out to the fantastic garden.

Overlooking the golf course, the garden is lawned and bordered by luscious trees; you can sit and look on as the little ones take pleasure in exploring and running around.

When the night draws in, move upstairs to find the well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a master bedroom with double bed and en-suite bathroom and two twin rooms, served by a shower room, all benefiting from storage for your belongings and light and bright decor.

A few miles down the road to the centre of Ravenglass will take you to the nearest pub, or if you are after more choice in restaurants and eateries, you can drive around 30 minutes south to Millom or 30 minutes north to Whitehaven for supermarkets, shops, pubs and restaurants.

Your main activity of your holiday will probably involve walking boots, so make sure not to forget them!

Set out finding a route that would suit you best; there are many light walks along the River Esk, or for the more experienced who like a challenge, take one of the routes up the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike.

High Eskholme is a wonderful family home perfect for enjoying the delights of the Lake District.

About the location


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.
