    Cosy accommodation in a stunning location with pretty walks from the doorstep. Well priced for the time of year (August), secluded and no amenities within walking distance which we knew. An abundance of wildlife in the garden and over the bridge in the woods. Very tranquil.

    The setting of the cottage is superb - beautiful gardens and surrounding areas with access to a wide range of walks from the front door (and via the quaint little footbridge at the bottom of the garden). The cottage is not for the disabled or anyone with difficulty with steps - there are steep steps to access the cottage. The area is quiet and away from the bustle of the lake-side towns. We enjoyed walking around lonely Bethecar Moor and Rusland (love the church) - and of course Grizedale is also on the doorstep. The Eagles Head is the nearest pub (just over a mile away) and there are no local shops. The pub is fine for a quick drink and a bite to eat, however, we found the newly renovated Manor House in Oxen Park to be excellent (5 - 10 minute drive or decent (daytime) walk). Hawkshead is around 5 miles away. The cottage would be better described as an apartment with the owners living above. Everything is on one floor. While fairly basic accommodation, the cottage is well-equipped with kitchen gear etc. However, a new TV is desperately needed. While there is Sky TV and wifi, the TV is on its last legs with lots of flicker and a white glow to the screen. We ended up just using my iPad to watch the news rather than the TV. For music, again, glad we had the iPad! There is no mobile signal, but as noted, there is reasonable wifi available if you need it. There was a bit of a musty, unlived-in atmosphere when we arrived but we got cosy with a few candles, incense sticks, open windows etc. The main bed is quite small. The property was fine for two of us and a small dog. It would be a bit too cosy for four people. There are electric heaters and an electric fire - a log burner would have been very welcome. There is no visitors book in the cottage which is a shame, hence the long review here. The owners are very welcoming but unobtrusive. The location and grounds made it for us - it really is stunning. The weather helped! We enjoyed relaxing by the patio table after an afternoon walking. We love the area and had a great long weekend with Bobbin Mill Cottage as a base.

    Absolutely beautiful location and gardens, with walks right on the doorstep. There are no very local pubs or shops, but we knew that before we booked and this means it is very tranquil and relaxing. The facilities in the cottage are good with a well equipped small kitchen perfect for a family. The accommodation is all in one floor with some steep steps to reach it. The garden is gorgeous, with a stream and a swing, perfect for older children (ours, at 7 and 10, adored it). The owners were friendly and helpful and are onsite if needed. We would book here again in a heartbeat.

    A wonderful welcome in a peaceful location. The Bobbin Mill cottage has lots of history and you can tell by talking and looking around the grounds of this now converted mill. Kitchen well equipped with the added bonus of Sky TV when the weather draws in. The grounds are lovely with force beck running just down at the bottom of the garden. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    We had a lovely stay at Bobbin Mill Cottage- it was just what we were looking for. It has a bra garden with a bridge over the stream to the Grizedale forest- ideal if you have a dog with you. The cottage is quite remote and we were pleased about that as the location is between both lakes - we didn’t want to be in the villages. The nearest and best pub for a meal is The Manor House st Oxen End- 10 mins drive away - not really walkable. The only downside to the cottage was that it smelled damp - although no sign of dampness.

    We, a family with two young children, stayed at Bobbin Mill Cottage for a week over the August bank holiday and following few days. When the Lake District was busy over the weekend, we could enjoy the quieter parts of the South Lakes in peace! The cottage was well stocked, and the hosts were welcoming and friendly. There was a swing in the garden for the kids, which they loved, and Grizedale Forest walks were literally on the doorstep (going through the beautiful garden). If you want a peaceful escape to The Lakes, we’d recommend Bobbin Mill. The only downside was that you have to drive for around 15-20 mins through narrow winding lanes (very pretty, but not recommended for a novice driver) to reach amenities. Currently the Windermere ferry is out of action, apparently it will resume at the end of Oct 2018, so that might help shorten some journeys. It’s a relatively long drive from the open scenery of the lakes if that is what you are wanting. Nevertheless it was a wonderful place to enjoy a holiday. Both Coniston and Windermere are relatively close by, and Ulverston was the most accessible town, which was substantially less touristy. Thanks to the hosts for their kindness and for welcoming us.
