Eskdale Mill welcomes you! Discover a unique experience at this charming site. Eskdale Mill embodies the Lake District’s rich heritage.

The best way to visit the mill is to use the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway. The mill is a short (10 minute) walk from the station – just follow the signs. Please see their website for timetables and cost details.

If you choose to use a car, please plan your route carefully using a road map. Don’t rely on your SatNav directions which will suggest routes over the Wrynose and Hardknott Passes from Ambleside. These are very difficult even in good conditions. Equally scenic – but less terrifying routes – can be found via Ulpha and Seathwaite (from the South) or Egremont (from the North). Roads over the fells may be closed too, so please make sure you check local travel updates.

If you are using a car, there are a limited number of pay and display parking spaces at Dalegarth Station on the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway. There is also a free car park at Trough House Bridge to the south of Boot, a 20 minute walk away.

To find us from the Trough House Bridge car park retrace your steps north along the road. Cross over the River Esk bridge and turn right at the T-junction. Follow the road east past Dalegarth Station on your left. Follow the signs to the mill and after 500m turn left at the Brook House Inn.

Please take care of traffic especially on the bends and the main road.
