Lake District Testimonials

This was our 9th visit to Bridge End. The cottage, the village and the fells are just so wonderful – we have to keep coming back for more. It is a place to recharge the batteries and to relax after a day's walking and we are constantly impressed with the improvements and cleanliness. Thank you Greg.


A superb honeymoon in a truly romantic hideaway. Thank you for a wonderful week in a beautiful location – lots to do and see and the perfect place to relax.

"Hardknott Cottage is a perfect place to relax on your honeymoon. It is a beautiful and cosy place to relax after a long day walking. Everyone we have met in Boot has been really welcoming and friendly, especially the staff at the cottages! We will be back soon I am sure."

The Jones

"If you are looking for peace and quiet this is the spot to be. A delightful Farmhouse – beautifully renovated and full of charm. Very well equipped. Sampled the local pubs for food – certainly worth recommending. A well worth visit!"


"I must say we were thoroughly impressed with Wastwater Cottage and the whole set up in Boot. I have been recommending it to all my friends and I look forward to a return stay in the future."


"Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Whillan Beck Cottage last week. The setting was truly idyllic and the cottage extremely comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. All contact we had with Select Cottages – the office, housekeeper and gardener – was very friendly and helpful. This, combined with glorious weather and good walking conditions, made this holiday one of our best ever and we certainly hope to come back again in the not too distant future!"

Margaret & Steve

"Just returned home after a wonderful few days at your Farmhouse. We hope to return in the not too distant future. Our visit certainly brought back many happy memories of our previous visits to Boot and the surrounding areas. Long may it remain so idyllic and unspoilt. Congratulations on your efficient set up and dedicated team."

Fred & Janice

"Thank you for the lovely stay in the Farmhouse on a recent trip to the Lake District. It was absolutely perfect for unwinding on a long overdue break. The cottage was beautiful- I'm known to be a real stickler for cleanliness and having my own things around me but felt completely at home as soon as I walked through the door. I was so impressed at the modern amenities while still maintaining the rustic decor; the bathrooms in particular are beautiful. Please also thank all the staff for their welcoming attitude. We will most certainly visit again in the future... if we're lucky enough to get the time! "

Jess & Nathan

"Just to say we had such a lovely weekend staying in Boot with you. Thank you so much for the charming cottage and the warm welcome we felt. We managed to walk Scafell despite some snow and ice and also enjoyed a walk across to Wasdale Head and along the Esk to the waterfall at Stanley Ghyll. The local pubs are good and a few beers were sampled! Thanks again - we hope to be back."
