The Old Mill description

This former water mill (thought to be 15th century) has been extensively renovated and retains many interesting features. It also has a wood burning stove, designer kitchen and a wall mounted TV. Light, warm and spacious, it has a wonderful private terrace facing south to the sun and overlooking the River Leith. The Old Mill is situated on the outskirts of Great Strickland, a rural village in the Eden Valley and is just a stone’s throw from the Lake District National Park.
To the west, a mile away, is Lowther Castle (featured on the Antiques Roadshow) and the beautiful villages of Askham and Pooley Bridge. Ullswater offers various attractions including a trip on the lake on the old steamer, and some of Wainwright’s favourite fells including High Street, Place Fell and Helvellyn are all within easy reach. To the east there are peaceful country lanes for cycling and walking and beyond Appleby, the Pennine Hills. There are good opportunities nearby for horse riding, golf, sailing, canoeing, fishing, quad biking and clay pigeon shooting. Penrith is six miles to the north and has excellent shopping choices with supermarkets as well as an excellent local produce delicatessen, many arts and crafts shops, a cinema and a number of restaurants. There is a host of good pubs and restaurants close by. Within a mile are two village pubs serving food. Others nearby have gained reputations for quality food and service. The Old Mill offers a perfect, relaxing, holiday base in a beautiful valley from which to explore and enjoy the wonders of the area.
