    Old Mill Cottage sleeping up to 6 guests

    This beautiful Lake District cottage is a converted former mill, set in a peaceful hamlet location. Its all-white exterior and sash windows create an idyllic country house scene, engulfed by craggy green fields and narrow, windy lanes, just 6 miles from Kendal. This cottage is perfect for families, friends and couples looking for a base to explore a different region of Cumbria. The interior boasts a traditional feel, brought together with stylish fixtures and thoughtful details peppering the rooms. Four bedrooms rest on the first floor, well-presented in soothing colours, offering a restful night's sleep. 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. Crook is a tiny hamlet with a pub in the south of the Lake District National Park. There are plenty of walking opportunities right from the doorstep, however for further attractions, is the nearby historic town of Kendal. With its reputation for shopping, old cobbled lanes and the stone ruins of its 12th century castle perched over the town, Kendal is a popular destination among tourists. Visit Kendal Museum and the Museum of Lakeland Life, the fascinating Quaker Tapestry, Lake Windermere and the wider National Park. The vibrant towns of Bowness and Windermere are less than fifteen minutes drive away and offer much appeal, with boat trips, gift shops, pubs and The World of Beatrix Potter attraction. There is also a variety of watersports on offer at marine centres along the lake. This countryside cottage, with so much on offer in the surrounding area, is perfect for you and your family.

    Crook is a small hamlet located in the heart of Lakeland countryside and offers access to the Lake District National Park.

    Mr Corrigan – 1 Nov 2018
    "The cottage is very clean, well equipped and comfortable. It has a very homely feel and the owners have gone to the trouble of providing a lot of little extras: dog treats and towels for muddy paws, toiletries, basic kitchen provisions to start the holiday off and more besides. The wood burner is very welcome for cold autumn nights and very easy to use. The furniture is very comfortable and perfect for sitting watching the many birds that visit the garden. The bedrooms are lovely with very comfortable beds and quality bed linen. One of the best cottages we have stayed in."
    Mr Mclaren – 1 Nov 2018
    "Very well equipped property where the owners have really capitalised on the original features and complemented them with lovely decor, pictures etc."

    "Dog friendly and able to use the garden to sit, eat and drink. Everything u needed was in the cottage. The little touches the owners did was lovely especially the dog basket which was left for our use."
    - Mrs Barrigan, January 2019
    "We were made to feel so welcome with complimentary biscuits for all, towels etc for muddy paws, Kendal mint cake to sample! We found the cottage a great base for visiting all the lakes attractions as we celebrated our son’s second birthday during our stay. Everything we needed to make it feel like a home from home. We didn’t want to leave. Thanks for a lovely week!"
    - Mr Mclaren, November 2018
    "Very well equipped property where the owners have really capitalised on the original features and complemented them with lovely decor, pictures etc. The kitchen/utility rooms were particularly well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The main living room was spacious yet cosy, with the added ambience of the woodburner. Would definitely recommend."
    - Mrs Norton, December 2018
    "Personally I feel the photos presented on the website looked “ok” hence the reason we booked however upon our arrival we were positively delighted with this very fabulous cute, cosy and immaculate property Photos on the website certainly don’t do it justice! My husband,my three teenage boys and my elderly mum and our dog just loved every aspect of this holiday home Incredibly well laid out with a fabulous cosy log fire in the lounge area- just perfect for relaxing with a glass or two after a long walk Certainly much larger than we first envisaged The kitchen was very well designed and impressive space with everything you need to hand and yet still retaining that snug cottage feel and look Plenty of choice of bedrooms and every space designed and presented with style. Both bathrooms were of an equally high standard and design Certainly a property that is very much loved and highly maintained by its owners - credit to them"
