Character cottage - quaint, homely, beautiful
Open fire, comfortable seating
Brilliant aga - great for getting around as a family with hot drinks, and the outdoor kit drying out in an instant
Didn't want to go out, as the place was so lovely, but when we did - great walks and cycles from the door, beautiful valley "hidden gem" - I've come to the Lakes for years and never knew about it. Read more
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at the property, including the characterful features, open fire and aga.
Lakes Cottage Holidays hopes to welcome you back to Mill Cottage or another Lakes Cottage Holidays property in the future.
Lakes Cottage Holidays
Lovely old cottage, lovely owners, lovely area
Left on 09/30/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | TJTraveller
great place, lovely flagstone floors, aga in the kitchen which is on all the time, perfect for drying wet clothes after the inevitable walk in the rain. lots of toys for young children and board games for older people. Good sounding stereo (bring some CDs) and an open log fire with a guard for safety (not that I can keep a fire going). Wifi is in next house and only worked for me held up to a window or on the kitchen worktop so for anything other than specific use (eg check your email, quick browse) it's not there. No phone signal either but there is a phone (pay phone or incoming). Still you probably want to get away from all that. Lovely walks on hills in immediate vicinity and of course 15mins from Windermere. Read more
It is nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you back in the future.

A very memorable stay for the family
Left on 07/13/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | woodhouse family
We all enjoyed our stay in Mill Cottage. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the location was perfect. We loved the aga in the kitchen and the cottage itself. Very dog friendly and the walks from the cottage up the hills behind gave us glorious views of the surrounding countryside.

The owners are friendly & helpful at every opportunity while remaining discreet & unobtrusive. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The aga in the kitchen is brilliant; always on, boils a kettle in no time, great for cooking and gives off a lovely cozy heat. The location is very convenient to main roads and local towns and is easy to find. The village is quiet and pretty. If you like rural life, leave your bedroom windows open and you'll experience the soothing sound of running water as you listen to the local poultry announcing the morning as they strutt through the village! We heard the cuckoo, owls & pheasants too. Ah ...! We'd go back again at any time.
Ok, but missing basic supplies
Left on 05/24/2013 for a stay in March 2013 | Fim
A nice place, but given the cost it was disappointing in it's lack of touches to make the stay smooth. Basics weren't supplied, no washing up liquid, half a toilet roll, no salt etc. It may seem petty, but it makes a big difference as to how 'cared for' you feel.
Beautiful surroundings however, a great location for walks.
Cosy, warm cottage with really welcoming and helpful owners
Left on 11/04/2012 for a stay in October 2012 | Satisfied customer!
Cosy, warm cottage with really welcoming and helpful owners. The cottage ticked every box especially once we'd lit the fire and tucked into a bottle of red.
The owners couldn't have been more welcoming (but don't worry they weren't intrusive!) and had no issue in helping us out once we'd found out we'd arrived without our towels.
Thoroughly recommend a stay here.

Owners were so helpful and friendly. Cottage was ideal for our family and the 2 dogs. perfect location for walking the dogs and only minutes in the car for shops of every variety to suit all. We enjoyed the open fire and the aga .

tranquil location just outside kendal, property full of characture, had all you needed for your break, owners friendly and helpful, property just lacked some private outside space.
charming, quirky cottage, perfect setting for family holiday
Left on 11/12/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | Anne Fox
old world charm, coal fired aga in the kitchen, open fire in the sitting room, crooked staircase to make you feel tipsy at any time of day! Good food shopping at a reasonable distance, but the real plus of being able to walk the dogs right from the door in the early mornings (keeping a weather eye out for the free range chickens!)

Mill Cottage was a great place to stay in the Lakes, the setting was superb and the owners who live next door were very friendly and helpful. The cottage itself had bags of charm and the only thing that let us down was the weather! It was also a great place to explore the Lake District as well as Yorkshire and we went on walks in both places.

This is a beautiful cottage full of character, charm and very homely and oh so warm with the heat from the aga cooker which is an experience in itself learning to cook in. This is truly the good life and is the perfect place to chill out and enjoy this beautiful hidden gem of Cumbria. Highly recommended. A taste of how things used to be but with all the modern luxuries of a comfortable family country home.
