    Over the last dozen or so years I have watched Boot and Eskdale transform from a small backwater retreat that I visited often, all year round, specifically for its tranquility and sense of ‘off the beaten track’ into the tourism goldmine that it is today. Hollins used to be a backpacker/walkers site with basic yet homely amenities within a stones throw of two typical Lakeland pubs and a few feet from some of Lakelands best walking. Eskdale not being easily accessible by road, I believe it was in my fourth or fifth year of camping at Hollins when I saw my first caravan there; the drive over ‘the passes’ is worth it alone. The whole valley in general is now quite commercialised yet hides it very well and now seems to be geared up to attract the young proffessional and his family in order to give him a ‘countrified’ feeling with a safety net. Despite this pitch fees at Hollins are still reasonable and Jim and Rosie Bogg still give their unique welcome. It’s a crying shame though that they no longer open all year round.

    The huge halgates have taken over little Hollins farm and the prices with a awning have already gone up 40%

    They will improve it no doubt ie hook ups better showers and it will get busier noisier and other improvements

    It is of interest to me to note the write up of this site as my family and I used to run this site since the early 1950’s until Jim and Rosemary Boggs took it over, we used to take caravans and motor homes until the National Park Authority put a stop to it but now note that there are caravans being allowed on to this site, it is certainly a nicely situated site in a bueatiful part of the globe
