Holiday Cottage in the Western Lake District

Rock How Holiday Cottage


Rock How is a beautiful holiday cottage in the Western Lake District, situated in the little hamlet of Eskdale Green. It is a traditional slate-roofed stone built double fronted Lakeland cottage, occupying an elevated site with excellent views across the Muncaster Hills and with the sight and sound of the La’al Ratty steam engines at the bottom of the field opposite as they use the passing point at Irton Road station.




One of the reasons that Rock How is the perfect choice of holiday cottage in the Western Lake District is because of its location in Eskdale Green. Eskdale truly is one of the Lakeland’s most beautiful valleys. It is home to one of the most picturesque rivers in Britain, the River Esk. It is the perfect retreat for walkers of all ages and abilities with its range of paths, lanes and bridle ways for easy but visually pleasing walks up to the challenging rocky fells, steep inclines and ghylls for the more experienced mountain climbers. Within Eskdale you have access to some of the best mountains in England including Scafell Pike.




The house consists of a main sitting room, the snug (second small sitting room), kitchen and dining room downstairs. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, one twin room and a bathroom.
