Staying in the Eskdale Valley - golf holiday in The lake District?
Golf aficionados will agree that the championship standard course at Silloth-on-Solway is probably one of the best in Cumbria, with its intriguing layout and the consistently high reviews it receives in golfing magazines. Another golf club of note, Eskdale, is renowned for its views of Scafell Pike as well as its unique 14th hole, where the tee looks towards an island green set in a huge trout pond (fishing rods not allowed!).
Taking a golfing break is all the more reason to opt for a self-catering base, where you’ll find that your time is your own and you’ll even have somewhere private to clean your golf clubs at the end of the day! Whether you opt for a cottage, lodge, apartment, house, chalet or even a camping and caravanning site, there is nearly always a golf course within an easy reach by car.
And of course as the day’s winner, you’ll have plenty of time to stop at one of the quality inns or pubs you’ll pass on the way back to your self-catering accommodation and pay for that final ‘round’!
