Description
Situated in the heart of Eskdale, one of the most tranquil valleys of the Lake District, Hollin Head is a traditional Lakeland cottage that dates back as far as records began in 1586. With stunning views up and down the valley of mountains to the east and the Irish Sea to the west, the cottage is an ideal base for exploring the fells, rivers, lakes and tarns of this beautiful part of the world. Eskdale is a wonderful starting point for hundreds of walks, either on the fells or along the banks of the River Esk, which flows from Scafell at the top of the valley down to the estuary at Ravenglass, an old fishing village complete with a ruined Roman bath-house! The river has natural pools for swimming and is a popular place for canoeing and for fishing. The famous Ravenglass & Eskdale Miniature Railway runs along the valley, its steam trains leisurely making the seven mile journey down to the sea. There are five pubs in the valley, three of which are within walking distance of the cottage, all welcoming children and serving real ales and a wide choice of good food. The village shop and post office, Eskdale Stores, sells a comprehensive range of goods, including groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables, food to go, alcohol and newspapers. A public payphone is located 400 yards away from Hollin Head.
