Situated on the banks of the River Cocker with its own semi-private paddock, this sensitively refurbished former mill building offers accommodation with views of the northwestern fells from the paddock and a view of the picturesque 19th century stone bridge and river from the cottage itself. North Mill is the perfect cottage for dog lovers (a doggy welcome pack including throws, water bowl, ball and bags is provided), sleeping two people in a converted mill just outside Cockermouth.
Dogs are welcome to swim in the river and play in the two-acre paddock, shared only with the handful of guests in the adjoining cottages. Just under half a mile of the river is privately owned by the owners of North Mill, so fishing for salmon, trout and sea trout is permitted at no additional cost, just as long as you have the correct rod license. A footpath leads from the cottage into the lovely market town of Cockermouth (2.5 miles) and there are numerous pathways into the surrounding countryside. In fact, the National Park border lies just over the stone bridge!
The cottage itself is spacious and comfortable with full wifi access. With enticing mountain views from the paddock, it doesn't take long to drive into the Lake District to bike, hike, climb, swim, or paddle; there's something for everyone in this peaceful area of English Lakeland.
