The property

Overlooking the estuary towards Askam-in-Furness, Underhill Farm rests in a semi-rural location, on the outskirts of Millom town in Cumbria.

With fabulous views and access to the coastline from the lane (SSI), this farmhouse offers the ideal getaway for those looking to spot wildlife and find a plethora of outdoor activities to pass the time.

Choose to relax in the spacious sitting room on your return and wrap yourselves in the warmth oozing from the woodburning stove.

Alternatively, find the cosy snug is more to your liking for a quiet read, where you will find another woodburner taking the chill off a cold winter's night.

Boasting quirky features, such as the priest hole on the first floor landing, the beautiful stained glass window and brightly coloured ceiling in the hallway, this characterful cottage offers something for everyone.

Rustle up delicious meals in the kitchen and get the group together in the mornings for breakfast around the dining table, or gather in the more formal dining room for an evening feast as you discuss the events from the day.

At the end of your evening, retire to the bedrooms upstairs, two of which have zip/link beds for flexible sleeping arrangements.

Access is gained to one of the double bedrooms through an old door, which interestingly is believed to have been washed up on the nearby shore from a shipwreck.

You also have plenty of bathrooms for you to choose from on the first floor, handy for when you all want to get ready in the mornings.

The outdoor space invites you to share a glass of wine on the patio, where you can catch glimpses of the coast through the trees.

This area gives you easy access to the National Trust's timeless Duddon Valley, which offers rich, unspoilt landscapes and many opportunities for walking and cycling, among other outdoor adventures.

You can also discover all the delights of the Western Lake District, with its secluded beaches and rugged mountains, as well as the major attractions of South Lakeland, such as Lake Windermere and The Old Man of Coniston.

Enjoy peaceful sunsets and stunning seascapes at Morecambe Bay and try out a number of high-adrenaline activities, from mountain biking and horse riding to powered paragliding.

Escape to Cumbria and find the ideal holiday home here at Under Hill Farm.

There is also a statue in the town centre, commemorating the iron industry, depicting 'The Scutcher' who stopped the iron ore tubs with and iron bar and his own strength. This town was also home to writer Norman Nicholson, who has a stained glass window in St. George's Church dedicated to his memory, while the strange 'fish' window in the Holy Trinity Church is also worth a visit. Discover the remains of Millom Castle and travel to nearby Haverigg, with its Blue Flag beach, a restored lighthouse and children's adventure play areas, for the ideal family day out. Also find the 7 tonne sculpture ‘Escape to Light’ positioned near to the Haverigg Inshore Rescue station, constructed by Josefina de Vasconcellos to pay tribute to the Inshore Rescue Teams in the UK. Other attractions in the region include the South Lakes Safari Zoo, Black Combe for walks with stunning views and Sandscale Haws, a National Nature Reserve with an outstanding dune habitat supporting a plethora of wildlife.
