Overlooking the river, this handsome building was once a thriving mill. Today it provides a place for those who seek true peace and relaxation, enjoy the beautifully kept grounds or venture down the river path.

Ground floor apartment sleeping four guests, situated in a handsome former mill in the eastern region of the picturesque Lake District, just five miles from the shores of Lake Windermere. The lake and its shores are a wonderfully scenic location to enjoy a huge range of outdoor activities a well as a good network of footpaths. Activities range from leisurely boat trips to open-water swimming, fell walking, cycling, canoeing, and sailing. Those with an interest in culture and history are also well-catered for in the area, with the stately home at Sizergh Castle lying six miles south of the property and is a fascinating destination for a day out, particularly when coupled with a stop at Sizergh Barn, a fantastic farm shop and tearoom, which is also home to a fun and educational farm trail.

Stepping through the apartment’s private entrance, guests will come first to a garden room which provides them with a lovely place to sit back and enjoy the views across the garden. This room, in turn, leads onto the spacious lounge/diner, an elegantly styled room with two comfortable sofas, a roaring log fire, and TV/DVD. The dining area is situated at the opposite end of the room, and makes the perfect space to enjoy leisurely meals in the evenings. Next to the dining area, the kitchen is well-equipped and offers an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. The apartment has two bedrooms, a double and a twin, both tastefully finished to a high standard. Guests have a choice between a shower room with WC, and a bathroom which has a shower over bath and WC.

Outside, the shared riverside gardens are an attractive place to sit out and enjoy the tranquillity of the location. There are benches dotted about to give guests a quiet space to sit, but please be aware that the river is not fenced. There is parking provided for two cars and there is bike storage available.

Accommodation lovely but spoilt by being cold and felt damp. Needs spare linen and towels as well as more and better quality coat hangers. No shelf space for clothes in double bedroom. Overall lovely accommodation and location but let down by small but important details.

Comfortable and nicely decorated. Well equipped kitchen. I would recommend this property if you want a quiet location. But dont expect to be able to walk to a pub in the evening, as its over a mile down some very narrow lanes!

Beautiful cottage in a stunning location.

Large well equipped apartment in a complex with other houses and flats. This can be busy at times with other visitors and cars. The garden and river are well cared for. Located in a quiet village with plenty of walks from the house and easy access to south lakes. The fire was a real plus for us, shame no logs were left for the night as described.
