  • "Bobbin mill cottage was beautiful and better equipped than my own house!"

    Very quiet and beautiful location, would highly recommend.

  • "We very much enjoyed our stay at Bobbin Mill Cottage."

    All the facilities (shower, bathroom, roof windows, central heating, kitchen, TV, WiFi) worked properly - the owners have clearly purchased the best. There were excellent walks for us and our dog, directly from the cottage. The owners recommended several local restaurants that provided to be excellent. The only issue was parking, caused by an absent neighbour's thoughtless position in which he left his car - I had to reverse out each time, across a tight bridge and ended up scraping my car.

  • "Tucked away in tranquil spot with lovely walks on the doorstep but close enough to the Lakes."

    Cottage was spotless and had everything we needed. Owners were very amenable and offered us another night to avoid driving home in storm Eunice. Tracy

  • "Was a lovely base to plan our walks for each day and view just around cottage was spectacular."

  • "This cottage is in a wonderful location, bubbling stream, attractive gardens, really tranquil."

    Convenient for the Lakes and mountains but far enough away to avoid the bustle. The cottage is equipped to a high standard and we wanted for nothing. One suggestion to all owners, wider longer, beds!

  • "Holiday cottage was perfect, couldn’t fault it but the Admin on your side was poor."

    You made a typo with my email address and failed to send the booking confirmation until I chased the day before the holiday. You initially denied there was a booking because you couldn’t find the correct email address even though funds had been taken. Luckily resolved within a few hours once your team realised their error but unnecessary stress.

  • "Access to the hotel swimming pool was great & we used it a lot."

    The cottage was very comfortable and in a quiet, attractive location. The hosts were friendly & gave us lots of tips about local places to visit with the children. Cottage would be even better if shower was upgraded & there was a heated towel rail/somewhere to dry wet things.

The property

This Lakeland cottage is situated alongside the River Gilpin near the Cumbrian village of Crosthwaite. Bobbin Mill Cottage is one of a number of conversions in an old mill property and with its location by the river down a beautiful country lane, this offers quality accommodation for a peaceful small family or two-couple holiday in the Lake District. The ground floor boasts a high-quality open plan living area.

Whether nestled around the TV in the cosy sitting area with its wood-burning stove or cooking up a treat in the large fully-equipped kitchen area to enjoy at the ample dining space, you can be sure that whatever your needs, the standards and finish in the cottage are of high quality.

Upstairs are two cosy bedrooms, one double and one twin, to complete the cosy interior. The exterior of the property offers the real ‘wow factor.’ Large landscaped gardens are shared between you and the occupants of the other properties in the building, with the river running immediately next to your cottage. Riverside walks start outside your front door, and within a mile, you will reach the village of Crosthwaite to sample some local food and ale.

The leisure club of Damson Dene is within the same distance, with complimentary membership available to pamper yourself during your stay. Further afield lies the beauty of Windermere.

All the waterside activities are available, from the energetic water-sports to a leisurely cruise on the lake, all just a ten-minute drive to some of the most stunning beauty the Lake District has to offer. Bobbin Mill Cottage offers peaceful living in stunning grounds, making an ideal base for a couples or small family holiday in the Cumbrian countryside.

About the location


Bowness-on-Windermere 5 miles; Kendal 6 miles.

Crosthwaite is a small village set in the picturesque Lyth Valley, famous for its damson trees, and boasts a lovely pub known nationally for its excellent food. The lakeside towns of Windermere and Bowness are nearby, with plenty of activities, interest and entertainment for all ages. Also within easy reach is the popular market town of Kendal, an historic Lakeland town with a fine reputation for shopping. Kendal nestles on the banks of the River Kent. Its old cobbled lanes and byways branch off the attractive main street, and the stone ruins of 12th century Kendal Castle sit perched on a hill with views over the town. Both Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall with its superb Topiary Garden, are nearby, as are limestone escarpments for easy walking, offering thrilling views of the Lakeland Mountains, the Howgills and Morecambe Bay.
