About This Cottage

This beautiful Lake District cottage is a converted former mill, set in a peaceful hamlet location.

Refresh under a revitalising shower in the en-suite double before getting ready for the days adventures.
Perhaps when you return after a long country walk, you may want to sink into the bathtub and luxuriate in a hot soak to soothe your aching muscles.
The kitchen occupies modern fittings, yet retains some of its original features.
An ornamental fireplace takes centre stage, complemented by a lovely farmhouse theme.
The sitting room offers an elevated position on a raised platform.
Here, you can gather around the woodburner on a cosy autumn night and relax into the plush sofa.
Outside enjoys a glorious garden, with a plethora of wildlife flourishing among pretty flowers and shrubbery, to be enjoyed the year-round.
A small pond is full of newts and frogs in the Spring and Summer.
Take a seat on the sunny lawn and ooze in the tranquil atmosphere.
