Scafell Cottage

“I took my family to stay at Scafell Cottage in Boot from 24th to 31st October this year and we had the most wonderful holiday.  We all thought the cottage was absolutely stunning and so cosy and warm and exceptionally well equipped with everything needed to make our holiday even better. (Even to the lovely idea of providing two cuddly teddy bears on the twin beds for the two older children).  The weather on the first day was a 'bit to be desired' but we were so comfortable and cosy the rain didn't bother us one tiny bit. Even the three children of 7, 5 and 2 years of age were happy to stay in and play.  They thought the cottage was fabulous and want to go back next year. Bob the caretaker was very pleasant indeed and the pub in the village - well what can I say - we were never away!! You have done a beautiful job with those cottages Greg, the area is outstandingly lovely and the Ratty railway a real treat for the children. We will certainly want to come and stay again and thank you from my family and myself for making our holiday so relaxing.”


Named after Scafell, the second highest mountain in England and neighbour to England’s highest, Scafell Pike, Scafell Cottage presents itself as the largest of our cottages and potentially the oldest, as according to a National Park archaeologist, the barns may have preceded the building of The Farmhouse by up to 100 years!

Scafell Cottage is highly recommended for large groups or families, as well as parties with members who may have limited mobility or require ground floor facilities. It is delightfully open plan with a good flow for families and groups. The children often sit playing their games on the carpeted area between the lounge and kitchen leaving the adults free to relax on the sofas. As well as the full Sky TV package found in all of the Lake District cottages, Scafell has many novels to choose from and there is a CD player, ipod dock and children’s games to entertain everyone also. There is plenty of space for everyone to sit together at mealtimes, whilst there is also privacy, generated by the layout of the bedrooms.  The backdoors from the kitchen open out onto the lawned paddock affording lovely fell views so step out of an evening and light the barbecue to enjoy dining al fresco.
