Magnolia coming into bloom

General

  • Peaceful site with views over Eskdale and Wasdale valleys
  • Half an hour's drive from the seaside town of Whitehaven
  • Fenced paddocks and stabling facilities for horse owners

Escape to Eskdale… or Wasdale… or Ravenglass – Parkgate Farm Holidays is within easy reach of lots of the prettiest places in Cumbria's Western Lakeland.

You don’t even have to exit the site to start taking in those views, for there’s a rather fine outlook from this peaceful farm over the Eskdale and Wasdale valleys, with fields and forests thrown in to the frame too. Tempted to take a closer look? Fell walkers can stride forth directly from the farm, while more intrepid types scramble up Scafell Pike, half an hour away. Should you tire of the endlessly gorgeous lakeland views, a 10-minute drive will take you to the beaches of the north-west coast for a bit of seaside scenery.

Got a horse that needs a bit of a hol too? The farm’s sheep and donkeys are friendly bunch, so you’re welcome to bring your hoofed pal along for the ride. Fenced paddocks and comfy stables await on site, and there are loads of trails to trot along nearby.

All the farm’s units are kitted out with fully-equipped kitchens; if you don’t fancy cooking there are a couple of country pubs within 10 minutes’ drive.

    The cottage was perfect. Large homely rooms with clean towels and comfy beds. Everything you would need in the kitchen including washing machine. Which was handy with 3 dogs and 4 kids. Lovely views. Dyson the dog is friendly and played most days with my dogs. And the donkeys were great for the wee ones. Had a lovely family Xmas making memories in the cottage. Lovely walks and Cosy nights. Would definitely go back

Directions

Local attractions

Legs a little worn out from walking/biking/riding? Take a scenic trip on the Ravenglass & Eskdale steam railway – there’s a station half a mile from Parkgate Farm, or you can board at Ravenglass, 10 minutes' drive away to ride the whole route.

While you’re in Ravenglass, take a mooch round Muncaster Castle, a privately owned fort overlooking the River Esk. As well as tours round the castle there are also heaps of things for kids here, including an enchanted fairy trail, a maze and hawk displays.

Golfing types can swing their clubs on the courses in Eskdale or Seascale (be prepared for potentially distracting sea views at the latter). There’s a sandy beach in Seascale too; if the water’s too chilly for swims, head north to Whitehaven half an hour away to the public swimming pool. The Rum Story, an exhibition in an original 1785 shop, is worth a visit up here too (and yes, you can buy bottles of the good stuff).

Must see

  • Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway (2.8 miles)
  • Dove Cottage and the Wordsworth Museum (14.7 miles)
