The cutest & smallest cottage closest to the fells

Only a few metres away from the gushing Whillan Beck and the sixteenth century packhorse bridge that crosses it, if you love to wake to the sound of the stream and running water, then this cottage is the one for you! Jump out of bed and head straight over the bridge for a morning hike up the fells without encountering a single soul. In contrast, head out the other direction in the evening and find yourself at one of the local village inns for a pint and why not try your hand at the local pub quiz!

Whillan Beck Cottage has undergone a transformation through time; it was once a stable, then a wool shed, before it became an office, and now it is a cosy cottage! The smallest of our one bedroom cottages, yet with easy access to the river and the fells, this is a first-class choice for your upcoming enchanting weekend away.

Accommodation Summary:

Ground floor: combined kitchen/diner/lounge

First floor: 1 double bedroom with king-size bed, 1 bathroom with bath and over bath shower

You would be hard pressed to find a more beautiful and tranquil corner of the Lake District than the Eskdale Valley. The combination of the amazing location and accommodation provides the perfect ingredients for a superb holiday. The cottages are the perfect base to explore all of the treasures Eskdale and the surrounding area has to offer. Close by is the beautiful, deep, Wastwater Lake, England's deepest at 79 metres, and about 3 miles long. Also, near is the majestic Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England and one of England's most scenic hikes.

The 2 village pubs, The Boot Inn and Brook House Inn are within walking distance including a post office and village shop. There is also England’s oldest, working twin-wheel corn mill museum, Hardknott Pass (England’s steepest road) and a narrow-gauge steam railway - all close by.

There are plenty of walks with lovely views of waterfalls, lakes, rockpools and you’ll spot lots of wildlife along the way. Also, a great place for cycling; Eskdale Cycle Trail is a wonderful way to explore the valley with many stops along the way which are perfect for a picnic. Bring your bikes or hire them locally.

Other activities close by are: climbing, abseiling, canoeing, pony trekking, fishing and swimming (in hot weather) and much more.

Meet the owner

Greg Poole

Now in our 29th year of providing exclusive, luxury accommodation here at Bridge End Farm Cottages, myself, Greg, and the team at Select Cottages are assuredly well-versed in providing all our guests with a truly exceptional Lakeland experience. Having lived and brought up a family in The Farmhouse, we now often return for our own holidays, as you can see from the photos! My connections with Premier Cottages go back a long way too! As one of the founding members and original Directors I introduced the name 'Premier Cottages' and served on the Board the first 4 years with responsibility for the brochure, marketing and recruitment. I am very proud that Bridge End Farm Cottages are one of less than a dozen properties that have remained under the same ownership and have continuously advertised in Premier Cottages in all 20 years of its existence! We look forward to personally welcoming you and your family in our Lakeland paradise!
