About Eskmeals House

Eskmeals House is a lovely Georgian holiday home sleeping large groups of up to twenty one guests in comfort and classic charm. Sitting within its own grounds that extend to some seven acres of woods, lawns, natural areas and a walled garden, the house is ideal for extended groups of friends or families and is perfect for celebrating a special occasion such as a hen/stag night, birthday or anniversary at any time of the year.

Offering the opportunity of experiencing country life, Eskmeals House is positioned within the Lake District National Park and affords an enviable position within easy reach of the Irish sea and under a mile from the beach. The surrounding landscape has much appeal with its beautiful views over the fells, lovely walks and interesting flora and fauna.

Sitting in the Western Lakes, Eskmeals House is close to the Cumbrian coastal village of Ravenglass, Muncaster with its castle complete with hawk and owl centre, and the Ravenglass and Eskdale Steam Railway Line for a nostalgic way of seeing the beautiful scenery. The areas many attractions are also within easy reach including Scafell Pike (the country's highest peak), Wastwater (its deepest lake), Coniston (take on the challenge of The Old Man!), Hawkhead and Windermere - all within driving distance.

With the Cumbrian coast on the doorstep and the many Lakeland attractions a short car ride away, Eskmeals House offers the best of both worlds and provides plenty of space and the perfect setting for all large gatherings, whether it be work or pleasure.
