Mill Cottage description

Holiday home
Mill Cottage is a delightful, stone-built, semi-detached cottage set on the Graythwaite Estate in the Lake District National Park. With two bedrooms including one king-size double and one twin, the cottage can sleep four people. There's also a bathroom, a kitchen with dining area and a sitting room with gas fire. Outside, there is a garden with patio area and views stretching across the river to Lake Windermere as well as off road parking for three cars plus 5000 acres of estate grounds to wander. With wonderful walks from the doorstep and a host of excellent on-site facilities including a fishing lake, swimming pool, fitness suite and table tennis room, Mill Cottage offers a great base for your getaway.

The picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Cars are banned from the village, leaving visitors free to wander the wealth of tiny alleyways, thoroughfares, archways and courtyards between the whitewashed 17th Century houses. With stunning scenery and numerous attractions within easy touring distance, Hawkshead is in an ideal location at any time of the year.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

Loved the location, the cottage was renovated really well but retained old style character. It was really warm with comfortable bedrooms, lots of room for a two bedroom property. We will be booking again.

A peaceful haven yet not too far from the madding crowd.
