www.theholidaycottages.co.uk

Join us as we journey from Ravenglass, across the estuary, through the hills, en route to our final destination some seven miles up the line to Dalegarth.

The journey itself was one of Wainwright’s favourites, crossing seven miles of spectacular scenery to the foot of England’s highest mountains, the Scafell Range, 3,209ft at their peak.

The Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway is one of the oldest and longest narrow gauge railways in England, known affectionately as La’al Ratty meaning “little railway” in olde Cumbrian dialect. It was 100 years ago in April 1913 that the original 3ft line closed and in 1915 the new 15in La’al Ratty was born. The heritage steam engines transport passengers from Ravenglass, the only coastal village in the Lake District National Park to Dalegarth, some 210ft above sea level.

The journey takes 40 minutes up the line from the protected nature reserves of the Ravenglass Estuary through ancient woodlands and fells of the Eskdale Valley. En route keep your eyes peeled for Greylag Geese, Curlew, Shelduck, Red Squirrels and Buzzards. The cosy covered and open top carriages provide the best of comfort and views as you travel up the line.

On arrival there is something for everyone, with our cafe serving homemade treats and gift shop with plenty of trails and walks to explore in this beautiful corner of the Lake District National Park. ‘Britain’s Favourite View’, Wastwater is just around the corner.
This is the just the start of your adventure right here!

39 Inspiring Gardens… all in one place

Barnsdale Gardens, The Avenue, Exton, Oakham, Rutland


For families or gardeners, Barnsdale is an inspiring place to visit at any time of the year. With Britain's largest collection of individually designed gardens, it's teeming with great ideas.

Barnsdale Gardens in Rutland were made famous by Geoff Hamilton through the BBC television series Gardeners' World which he presented from 1979 until his death in 1996. Geoff Hamilton began developing the garden in 1983 from what was then a ploughed field. The work that Geoff started not only continues in the gardens at Barnsdale but also through the charity set up in his memory. Geoff's passion was gardening, in all its many varied forms and his mission was to encourage as many people as possible to experience the pride, satisfaction and downright joy that gardening can bring.

With thirty nine individual gardens in an eight acre site, there's plenty to see and do at Barnsdale. Our inspiring range of garden styles and planting schemes have been referred to as 'a theme park for gardeners'. However, you'll get plenty of opportunity to rest, contemplate and learn alongside all the excitement when you visit us.

Whether you are a keen gardener, an armchair gardener or a visitor looking for a wonderful day out with a great lunch in the tea rooms, then Barnsdale Gardens is for you!
