Bower House Inn

In our opinion, this is one of the best Lake District hotels to stay in. Perfectly located (it's close to the Ravenglass Miniature Railway), and with fine views overlooking the surrounding fells, Bower House Inn is a haven for walkers.

Spread across several buildings but still intimate enough to give it a homely feel, Bower House comes highly recommended.

A glacial valley in the west of the Lake District National Park in Cumbria, England, Eskdale is a stunning area in which the River Esk flows, however unusually Eskdale is not home to a lake. Eskdale is a popular attraction, especially during the summer months, largely due to the amazing scenery and selection of walking trails that can be followed.

England’s highest mountain, Scafell, is nearby and is a popular challenge for many mountain climbers! One of the Lake District’s most popular tourist attractions, the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway, runs through the valley also. The main access to the valley is from the western end, however there are numerous other points of access around the area.

There are a number of places where you can stay in the area, including campsites, caravan parks, guesthouses, bed and breakfasts and self-catering accommodation choices, and there is relatively easy access to the surrounding towns.
