General Dogsbody to Pet Friendly Lake District cottages

Published:

Trawling through our photos last week, I found some of Low Millgillhead, showing the work we were busy getting ready for the first ever visitors at the house.  Unbelievably that was five years ago!

Bruno was born two days before we got the keys to Low Millgillhead, but it quickly became clear who was the foreman and who was the general dogsbody!

As soon as Millgillhead was completed, we moved into Croft House next door.

This required rather more fundamental work; the stunning dining room upstairs was already converted into Lady Moon's music room, where she would give concerts on the baby grand piano and host music school during the summer but downstairs was still the original coach house, which we needed to convert into bedrooms.

Speaking of being a general dogsbody, Croft House accepts up to 3 dogs (or 4 dogs if taken with Millgillhead).
