This converted mill has an abundance of exposed beams and views over the fields to the River Eden. Ideally located on the outskirts of Carlisle to enjoy the facilities of the city yet due to its location has a country 'get away from it all' feel.
Carleton Mill was formerly a working mill dating back to 1721 and is located on the outskirts of Carlisle. The cottage has an abundance of exposed beams and magnificent open views across the fields to the river. The historical city of Carlisle has a wealth of activities to keep the family entertained during their stay including the castle, cathedral, Tullie House Museum, the Lanes Shopping Cent...re, and much more. Carleton Mill is only 1 minute from the motorway, making the Northern Lake District easily accessible and the winding lanes of the Eden Valley are also close by making this an ideal base to explore the whole of the area, and for the days when the weather is not at its best, exploring the historical city is a must.

Lovely cottage.Owners really helpful and right next door. Great base to discover the surrounding area. Loads of information available in the cottage, and beautiful surroundings. Fully recommend The Shabby Scholar in Carlisle cafe/bar, wonderful atmosphere and welcoming staff...we loved it...really quirky!
A superb modern barn conversion that is top quality.

Carleton Mill Cottage is a lovely property finished to a very high standard. Located 3 miles south of Carlisle it is convenient for the Northern Lakes and the Eden Valley.
Parking is off the access road in a small cul de sac of exclusive properties about 50 metres from the cottage. The driveway to the cottage is narrow so unloading a large car requires careful manoeuvring and with the accommodation being on the first floor some agility is required!
On the main road a combined petrol station and Spa Shop is conveniently situated within 300 metres.
Overall the place is great with friendly owners and we enjoyed our time there. Read more

Fantastic place to stay

When we arrived we were welcomed and shown around the cottage by pleasent folk. The cottage was spotlessly clean and all essentials were available. I think that the location of the cottage being near to the M6 motorway made it easy to travel around. It was also easy to travel to the west coast and north lakes. There are pleanty of local shops, including a large Tesco store within easy reach and the town centre is only a short ride. The outlook at the rear is great to look at when you wake up in the morning and the owners who live adjacent were friendly and happy to help with anything at all. I would not hesitate to book this cottage again.
Clean and comfortable base for Carlisle area

Very clean, comfortable and roomy base for touring North Cumbria and the attractions around Carlisle. Although within a rural setting it is very close to all the amenities of the city. The location is quiet with pleasant views. Would not suit anyone with mobility problems as stairs to the main living area. Owners were polite but unobtrusive and we would happily return to this property in the future.

A Lovely Place to Stay
Left on 01/17/2013 for a stay in January 2013 | Fiona Smith
The property is truly lovely and very well equipped and presented. The added benefit of the appartment downstairs meant that we were able to accomodate (and have some privacy from!) our in-laws.
Carlisle, whilst small, is an amazingly convenient location. You can be easily travel to The Lakes, Scotland or the Dales.
The owners were delightful. Helpful, friendly and very accomodating (not-to-mention tolerant of the noise associated with a 20-month-old baby and two elderly, slightly deaf people). They were an absolute pleasure to deal with.
The only (very, very minor) criticism is that there seemed to be a combination of some unreliable wiring and blown bulbs in the property, so not all lights were working. A small thing, but it did prevent me from rating this property 5 stars.

We are 2 active older ladies who stayed here at the beginning of May. It is ideally situated for walking Hadrian's Wall Path,which is what we were doing.
It is not a "cottage", but an upstairs apartment (with a large cupboard under the 20 stairs with the boiler,washer/dryer and a small table top freezer).It is attached to the owners part of the house in the converted mill. You can hear everything through the connecting door in the lounge. The photograph is misleading as it shows the owner's house and not what you are renting.
It is inconvenient if you have a lot of kit.You have to park your car up at the end of the lane next to the main a6 road out of sight of the property.This area looked like the local fly-tipping spot.
It states that bed linen is supplied.However, we were staying for 2 weeks and when we politely enquired at the beginning of the second week if we would be getting a change, the male owner yelled and ranted at us from an upstairs window.We were told "There's a washing machine. If you want clean sheets, wash them yourself!". We both looked at him in disbelief. He seemed to take even greater exception to our shocked looks and told us that because of "the looks on our faces" even if he had been inclined to supply a change of bed linen he wasn't going to do it now".
Our problems with the owner were probably caused by our not accepting the fact that certain lights weren't working, especially in the bathroom. They tried to fob us off with nonsense about them being "a bit temperamental because they are energy-saving".The bulbs needed changing. A bedside lamp had a dodgy connection and the spotlight in the kitchen area "had never worked since they had been there". The word electrician sprang to mind.
Fortunately everyone else we encountered on this holiday was lovely, and we had a wonderful holiday when away from the property.
Carleton Mill Cottage, Carlisle
Left on 11/04/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | Nick Long
We found the cottage to be excellent value for the price, especially as we were able to take the room downstairs as well. It was clean and comfortable and our four teenage boys seemed happy which is always a bonus! Our own only comments are in the advertising of the cottage. The photo of the outside of the Mill is slightly misleading as what you see in the main is the owners cottage, and it is not altogether clear, where Mill Cottage actually is. It should also be noted that because it is essentially one building, that the owners do live next door and the only thing that separates you from them is locked doors, therefore you can hear them and they can certainly hear you. This wasn't a great issue for us it may be for others.
However all in all it was a good place to stay, and very handy for the Northern Lakes and Hadrians Wall, and Scotland if you wish to venture that far!
