  • "Best property we have stayed in in many visits to the Lakes."

    A really comfortable home from home with a fabulous garden (ideal for older children but not toddlers), beautifully presented and with everything we needed. Very dog friendly. Nice quiet location with beautiful walks nearby.

  • "The location of the cottage was perfect, so tranquil."

    Unfortunately the alpaca farm which was next door has closed so the write up needs updating. The cottage had everything we needed for a multi generational family to stay. It was a warm and welcoming house. The only slight negative were the very small single beds which were pretty uncomfortable. The garden was fantastic and we used both the upper and lower terraces and the family made good use of the hot tub. We would definitely visit again.

  • "Perfect for a group or family We (4 couples) had a fabulous weekend in this lovely cottage."

    We were extremely lucky with the weather(!) and so got to enjoy the garden as well as the interior. Clean with plenty of space, the cottage is in a quiet location with great views, but also very convenient for the pub. Perfect.

  • "We are aware that there are on going improvements to the property but overall were all very impressed with the cottage, its garden and the surrounding landscape, also the welcome pack was gratefully received."

    Just a few minor points, maybe some more soft furnishings for the dinning room ie.curtains/ blinds some bins in the bedrooms and better lighting for the kitchen. We would like to say that the owners made us feel very welcome and at home, we would not hesitate to book again in the future. Thank you all, we had a wonderful time.

The property

Santon Bridge, Wasdale.

Fell Foot is a traditional Lakeland stone cottage dating from 1899, extended to a spacious, 4/5 bedroom family home in the heart of Wasdale in western Cumbria, boasting stunning views of the Wastwater Fells.

The property sleeps up to 8-10 guests, perfect for a large family gathering in this beautiful corner of England.

A spacious lounge features a gorgeous open fire granite fireplace with elegant reading chairs, a luxurious three-seater sofa and an upright piano for the musically minded.

The recently renovated country kitchen features an electric hob built into the worktop with a large double oven and grill, dishwasher and microwave.

Past the breakfast table you move through into a beautiful dining room with extendable table, ideal for family meals or party games.

The larger of two king-size double rooms features a lavish four-poster bed with newly fitted en-suite walk-in shower, sink and toilet and an adjoining study room which is the ideal spot to place a travel cot.

Zip-and-link beds in the two other double rooms can be configured for four single beds - ideal for children – or two doubles, depending on your preference.

A cosy, snug room comes with games and books plus comfortable double sofa-bed – an excellent place for children to tuck themselves away.

A brand new family bathroom features a deep bath and drench shower with Victorian fittings and sink with vanity unit.

A vintage-style heated towel rail adds extra comfort.

Towards the rear of the property, you’ll find a handy utility and boot room with American style top-loader washing machine, tumble-dryer, fridge/freezer and sink.

A Welsh dresser holds all the information you will need about the local area plus there’s space to hang coats, dry clothes and for your dogs to curl up for the night.

Outside you’ll find a beautiful, enclosed garden with mature trees, lawned areas and a paddling stream – perfect for young children and dogs – plus a luxurious six-person covered hot tub with views of the fells, as well as a sunny patio and a large BBQ area for alfresco dining.

At Fell Foot, you’re blessed with a lovely cosy pub just three minutes’ walk down the hill – The Bridge Inn – and the great Woodlands Café and Gift Shop is even closer for hearty Lakeland breakfasts, lunches and cream teas (they will also supply basics such as milk, bread, bacon etc to our guests).

Closer still, literally next door, is a one-of-a-kind experience at The Woolly Farm, offering llama and alpaca trekking, as well as a host of other fantastic animal activities.

Walk up the hill to find Irton Pike, offering an amazing panorama of Wasdale, Eskdale and down to the sea at Ravenglass.

Within 15 minutes’ drive of Fell Foot you can reach Wastwater and Wasdale Head – a popular base for climbing England’s highest peak, Scafell Pike.

Or you could be on the coast at Seascale, having an ice-cream on the beach, letting the kids loose on the adventure playground or enjoying a round of superb links golf.

Other activities nearby include kayaking, ghyll scrambling, canoeing and horse riding.

You’ll also hear the distinctive toot of ‘The Ratty’, one of the oldest and longest narrow gauge railways in England.

Meaning “little railway” in old Cumbrian dialect, ‘La’al Ratty’ has been running between Ravenglass on the coast to Dalegarth in upper Eskdale for more than 100 years and is perfect for kids and steam enthusiasts.

Fell Foot is a beautiful cottage acting as an ideal base from which to explore the tranquil western Lake District, any time of the year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £175.

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.
