The owners have carefully retained many characterful original features to provide sympathetic light and modern accommodation of the highest quality. The genorously sized sociable kitchen features bench seating, sumptuous sofas, a cosy wood burner and a stunning central kitchen island, topped with a local slate work surface.

It is ideally situated to enjoy both Wasdale, Eskdale and surrounding areas. The pub is just a 100-metre stroll away from the cottage.

The accommodation at the cottage is spaciously arranged over two floors. Enter the cottage through the patio doors to a beautiful fitted kitchen compromising a central island and high stools, perfect for socialising whilst cooking.

There is a dining table and seating for ten people along with comfy sofas for relaxing around the large wood burner. There is a further set of patio doors leading to the rear garden which backs onto a stream, running into the nearby River Irt (please note that this is unfenced).

From the kitchen you enter the light and spacious lounge with TV and DVD player as well as a further woodburning stove and decorative traditional fire place.

A bit disappointing. Its in a beautiful area but a bit shabby and tired looking inside. Comfortable beds but other furniture not very comfortable. Not good enough for the money.

Washing up liquid should have been provided - particularly as the grill tray doesn't fit in the dishwasher (we had to clean the grill tray ourselves before we could use it as it was dirty). There were no lights working upstairs in the smaller part of the cottage - we had to go looking for the fuse box to fix it. There was a bad smell when we arriveRead mored which got continually worse over the weekend - it was definitely coming from the drains/septic tank. Dirty carpets. King size bed is badly worn. Hide

We noted a few issues with the house The kitchen sink was disgusting, especially the rotten wood surface around it, it was at best off-putting and possibly a health hazard We reported a problem with the toilet flush on the first day, this still wasnt, repaired by the time we went, I spoke to the caretaker, Sallys had given him incorrect informationRead more. In General the house had only been quickly and superficially cleaned. The handle fell of the front door There were ants in the kitchen .. Hide

Mill Cottage was one of the few dog-friendly properties we could find. And a great find it was. Location is on the western edge of the lakes, The layout of the property worked really well for us (2 adults, 3 young kids, 2 dogs) but would work equally well for 2 families, with two of the five bedrooms positioned some distance from the other 3. QualiRead morety of the house was spot on. Having the Bridge Inn at the end of the driveway was a great bonus. A brilliant stay in a fantastic property. Hide
