Situated in the grounds of Seaton Hall, a working farm. Steeped in history, this former shepherds cottage fell into dilapidation but is now restored and renovated into a charming self catering cottage. Originally a 13th Century Benedictine nunnery Seaton Hall was demolished by Henry VIII under the dissolution of the monasteries and rebuilt in the 16th Century. One gable end of the monastery survives to this day and is a scheduled ancient monument. There are footpaths through the grounds to walk the dog, with more great walking in Eskdale and Wasdale. Within a two mile radius you will discover Bootle village, with shop, Millstones cafe, The Brown Cow pub and a sand and shingle beach. Local visitor attractions include ’La’al Ratty’ miniature railway, Muncaster Castle, a wildlife Park and Hodbarrow Nature Reserve. The picturesque villages of Broughton in Furness and Ravenglass are nearby, each have a selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants. You can hop on the train at Bootle Station and enjoy the beautiful coastal trip to the historic port of Whitehaven. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

Lovely quiet location, perfect for us but a family with younger children may find it a bit quiet. Perfect land lady.

Excellent cottage and hosts who couldn't do enough to make it pleasant stay, it is an ideal location for the lake district if you want to be away from the busy tourist spots such as Windermere, we went through Windermere but couldn't find anywhere to park, however we found the National trust site at Fell Foot at the end of the lake which was good with parking in the shade.
