    The Mill is situated at the heart of the unspoiled Lakeland village of Mungrisdale, in a peaceful Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Local walks from the doorstep are plentiful. Following the River Glenderamackin’s waterfalls leads up to Bannerdale Crags, onto Sharp Edge and the summit of Blencathra. Easy walks include Swinside Valley and Bowscale Tarn.
    Originally built as a corn mill in the 15th-Century, with a fifteen foot water wheel, it also worked as a timber mill and carpenter’s shop, specialising in horse drawn carts. The adjacent Mill Cottage and popular Mill Inn (17th-Century) have entertained many famous visitors including poets William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who in 1803, overturned their cart and stayed overnight as they journeyed to Scotland. Authors, Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins resided in 1857; rock legend Peter Gabriel and former Prime Minister John Major stayed at The Mill when it operated as an award-winning small hotel. The holiday cottage was, at the time, the private residence of the hotel owners. Located at the foot of Souther Fell, The Mill is well placed to see the legendary ghosts of the Roman Army, who were first witnessed marching across the fell on a midsummer’s eve in 1735.
    The Mill has been sympathetically renovated to provide contemporary comforts within its heavily beamed traditional interior.

    A little gem of a cottage in a more remote area of the north eastern Lake District. We arrived to find a welcome pack including wine and cake; wonderful touch. We were visiting to fell walk in the area and local amenities were not high on our priority list but we had a pub within yards when we needed it and both Keswick and Penrith were within easy reach. Chris was the perfect host; around if needed but leaving us to enjoy the peace and quiet of the surroundings. The shower was a challenge for the tallest but always lashings of hot water available after our fell walks. The log fire created a very relaxing atmosphere. We would visit again without a second thought.

    Perfect location if you like being away from our all but a short drive away from a major town if necessary. Lovely walks from the doorstep. Great hospitality and warmth from the owners. Great cosy little cottage with everything you need. Children loved the chickens. Couldn't recommend enough.

    Lovely cottage and owners are really friendly. Location great for access from motorway, but still can do walks from the door! Close to Keswick and N Lakes.

    We really enjoyed our stay in the Lakes. ? The accommodation felt really homely and very cosy. ? It is very well equipped, and the owners who live next door were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. On arrival we found a little basket in the kitchen with eggs, tea, bottle of fine red wine and a freshly baked banana chocolate cake ?. We conquered some of the mountains in the area including Blencathra. The food in the pub next door was also very nice. All in all a great holiday.?
