We stayed at the Boot Inn over the Easter weekend and had a lovely time. The rooms have been refurbished as mentioned by several other reviewers, and ours was extremely clean and warm and cosy, there was everything you need nice comfortable bed, nice ensuite bathroom.
It is a beautiful place with gorgeous views. The staff are extremely welcoming. And I really can't rate the food and attention given to guests enough from breakfast time through to dinner. I had lamb on the second night, with a leek and cheese potato side dish, and it was lovely. They didn't stint on the amount of meat given, giving me a a huge lamb shank and lamb chop. My husband's starter of scotch egg cooked in black pudding was cooked to perfection, and quite amazing.
We enjoyed lots of lovely walks, and as the Boot Inn is from the Pennington group, took a discounted day trip to the seaside in Ravenglass on the popular L'il Ratty, single gauge steam train.
At the end of the day we would return and relax in the bar with a drink next to the lovely open log fire - just gorgeous.
Can't wait to go back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Boot Inn nestles in the tiny hamlet of Boot, deep in the heart of the Eskdale Valley. Within easy walking distance of The English Lake Districts largest and most majestic fells, yet only 7 miles from the sea. We provide first class food, drink and accommodation with nine letting bedrooms, bar, conservatory and snug areas, we also have ample car parking and a large beer garden. The inn itself has been catering for the hungry and thirsty travellers since the 17th century, offering a selection of traditionally kept cask ales, fine wines, sprits, continental beers, soft drinks and excellent food. At the Boot Inn we endeavour to source as many of our ingredients and most of our produce locally including the almost legendary cumberland sausages. Everybody is welcome included our four legged friends. With real log fires for those chilly autumn, winter or even summer days, a warm welcome is always guaranteed. The valley provides a wealth of opportunity for outdoor activity with Scafell, Great Gable, Harter Fell, Bowfelll, Crinkle Crags and many others all within walking distance without having to cross a single road! Cyclists can pitt themselves against the Hardknott and Wrynose passes, the steepest section of road in England leading to the Duddon Valley and Langdale. For those of a more spiritual and historical interest there is to be found the remains of a Roman Fort in the upper reaches of the valley and the beautiful 14th century church of St Catherines only a short stroll away. Slightly further afield attractions such as Muncaster Castle and Eskdale Golf Course are close by. ... more less
