About The Old Bank

The Old Bank is located in the peaceful village of Bootle on the western edge of the Lake District National Park. It is within walking distance of the village shop and pub and just a few miles from the coastal hamlet of Ravenglass. Sleeping up to six people in three bedrooms that can either be made up as king size beds or two singles, it offers flexible accommodation for families and friends wanting to explore this beautiful corner of the Lake District. The Old Bank can be booked together with the Old House next door to accommodate groups of up to 15 people.

Whilst most people visit the Lake District for it's stunning mountains and glistening lakes, the lesser well known, but equally beautiful western coast remains a bit of a hidden gem. Surrounded by rugged moorlands and impressive fells, and with the coast also on your doorstep, there are endless activities to keep the keenest outdoor enthusiasts happy. Whether you want to climb to the top of Scafell Pike, England's highest peak, or simply enjoy a leisurely stroll around the lakes and moorlands, there is a walk for everyone. Keen mountain bikers will love the fantastic trails nearby or get your fill of sea air at Ravenglass beach. The small village of Ravenglass, which sits on the coastal estuary where the Rivers Irt, Mite and Esk meet, is a lovely tranquil spot. Once you have blown the cobwebs away on the beach you can explore the remains of the Roman bathhouse, take a ride on a steam train at the Victorian Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway or explore the haunted Munster Castle and Gardens, which also has a hawk and owl centre.

For those happy to venture a little further afield, the popular Coniston Water and Lake Windermere are within easy reach for a day out. Go walking, biking or enjoy the adventure activities on offer in Grizedale Forest or visit the Beatrix Potter gallery in Hawkshead. Whether you are looking for a new adventure each day, or simply want to recharge your batteries and soak up the stunning scenery, the Old Bank is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Two well behaved dogs are welcome and bookings are available all year round.
