  • "I stayed here with friends for a walking holiday and we absolutely loved the place."

    The owners had left us a lovely welcome package and the cottage had everything that we needed. Can't imagine a better way to finish a day of strenuous walking than sitting in a hot tub and looking out at the snow-capped fells!

  • "A lovely Cumbrian stone cottage, which has been sympathetically extended."

    The cottage has all the facilities we could have wished for, including a hot tub at the top of the garden. In summary a lovely quiet location. Santon Bridge is a small village however there is a good pub, and several good tea shops/ cafes. Eskdale Green and Wasdale are very close, lovely unspoilt villages, with more places to eat and drink, and the idyllic Wastwater lake.

  • "Fantastic garden, views and facilities, wii for the kids when needed, range of books games, fully furnished property, great sized laundry/boot room for dogs, hanging outerwear, storing boots etc."

    Bedrooms were comfortable and really clean as were the bathrooms, with an abundance of towels I think it’s fair to say the decor is a little dated, but our interaction with the owners and the prep for our stay along with the overall comfort levels more than made up for this. Most of the days are spent outside and it was a great place to return to after rafting, walking etc and is perfectly positioned for the great pub, just down the road. Fully recommend staying here, for the space in the house, views, facilities provided by owner, the great garden and overall comfort

  • "Fantastic property with character, as described and really well-equipped."

    Loads of board games plus waterproof OS 1:25k maps to borrow. Fell view from hot tub with a (plastic) glass of something fizzy was a treat! Local pub 1 min walk, 1.5 mile walk through local wood past tarn and round to halt station on the steam railway; 1.75 miles to pub at Eskdale Green and fab hike over Irton Fell with Wasdale views to brill pub at Nether Wasdale (The Strands). Easy and fun local drives, overall quiet area of the Lakes. Great having Fell Foot to come back to at night. Highly recommended.

  • "What an amazing property, so well equipped."

    From bread and butter, to waterproof maps. And of course tea and cake! Amazing. Dawn, the housekeeper, was so helpful and on hand at any moment. Beautiful views from the hot tub and garden, there is a cattle grid at the front of the property, which, somehow, our dog managed to get across, but only once, we think he didn’t like the experience first time. We loved to play the games which were on the bookshelf, with all the pieces still in their boxes! Oven gloves and tea towels, plastic rubbish bags and kitchen roll were all available for us, in the kitchen.

  • "Our holiday was perfect, from the accommodation right up to the areas to visit whilst there."

    Photos just doesn't give the house justice. Very clean, very roomy, very well equipped, we all absolutely loved it, especially at night when my 18 year old son would play the X Box (as he's not keen on hot tubs). Really nice views from the huge, lovely quirky garden and when relaxing in the hot tub which was used more or less every day. Would love to visit again especially as a gate will be fitted to the entrance of the drive way. I would highly recommend.

  • "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.

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 granite fireplace with wood-burning stove, 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).

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

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.

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.

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.
