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 15 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.
