  • "We enjoyed a really warm welcome to mill cottage from Jeanie and Logan and their lovely family."

    A lovely rustic cottage with an aga with all the comfort you need . An extremely well equipped kitchen and lovely warm comfortable bedrooms. Spotlessly clean throughout. Set in the most idyllic place we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and are already planning our return. Nothing was too much trouble and the knowledge and history of the cottage and area was superb from the owners. Thank you Jeanie and Logan .

  • "Our second visit to Mill Cottage (hence the 'Met Expectations' rating)."

    Situated in one of the few unspoilt valleys remaining in Lake district but still within easy striking distance of facilities and the more well known areas or the national park. The cottage retains great character whilst still providing for the needs of the today.

  • "Mill Cottage is situated in an excellent location: secluded enough to ensure a quiet and peaceful retreat, but close enough to the motorways and major roads to provide ease of access to the rest of the Lake District."

    Jeanie and Logan were fantastic hosts. The family were considerate and attentive to our needs as guests, but allowed us to enjoy our stay at our own pace. The property had all the charm and character expected of a countryside retreat and easily accommodated our group of six. It was clean and well-maintained, yet simultaneously rustic and homely. We felt confident that the cleanliness conformed to current sanitary expectations relating to the Covid-19 pandemic. I would highly recommend this stay.

    It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. We wanted for nothing and the supply of fuel and logs was a bonus. The hosts Jeannie, Logan and family are lovely, very kind and attentive and just next door for help and advice if needed. We would highly recommend and will return

  • "Stayed at Mill Cottage over Christmas."

    Such a lovely cosy place with the open fire which was needed with the cold weather. The garden isn't attached to the property which we were not aware of before. This caused a little more work letting the dogs out due to the potential traffic. Despite this we would happily return. Good location, comfy bed and all the necessities for a good break. Owner's came over and were very friendly. Couldn't have felt more welcome. Plus when the rain came in the superfast broadband was useful for netflix.

  • "The cottage was wonderful."

    .. cozy and interesting! We loved everything about it and it suited us well and Jeannie and Logan were very welcoming and helpful as well as reassuring us within the COVID pandemic situation. I’m not sure if I missed it in the description but I just wonder if the need to empty red hot ash from the solid fuel aga and fill with coal twice daily, and the 3 large steps from the kitchen to the living room, should be mentioned in the cottage description as they may be challenging for some people. Our group found them charming!

    Beautiful location, Wonderful owners (seriously so nice- couldn't do more for us) and incredible views. Really cosy feel to the place- you felt at home the minute you walk in. The beds were so comfortable and the history of this place was so humbling. I ADORED the Aga- kept the cottage so warm and got the quickest cuppa's, if that wasn't enough- there was also an open fireplace- perfection. If you get the opportunity to go, definitely go and make the point of star gazing at night- you'll be glad you did. I am very glad my friends and I went- and we wish that we went for a longer period, lesson for next time eh!

    The cottage was built in the 1600's and it's facilities are in fitting with it's age as well as being practical for our modern needs. We particularly enjoyed the AGA experience which needs to be embraced. The area is very quiet but only 4 miles from Kendal and all it's facilities. We have enjoyed a wonderful week at Mill Cottage and would love to return in the future.

    Many features still exist from the original building giving the cottage ample character. The cottage was perfect for our pet dogs with the slate floors and access to local walks. All of the rooms are clean and fresh. Many useful utilities were available to make our stay easy and enjoyable: washing machine, dish washer, iron, aga ( tremendous heat), variety of cooking pans and large Belfast sink in utility etc The helpful owners are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. A very inviting open log fire helped finish off the enjoyable days you will have in this location.

    Our cottage was a little slice of heaven and and experience we won’t forget. The cottage was cosy and warm, functional and had everything we needed for our Christmas country escape. Cooking a goose on an aga for Christmas lunch in the pristine countryside was just a real memory. Logan and Jeanie were excellent hosts and made sure our stay was one not to forget for all the right reasons. From the morning visit by the local chickens, to the gorgeous walks at our fingertips and the fact the cottage looked like it was under permentant Instagram filter - the whole experience was just magic.

It is not far from Kendal, Windermere and if you are feeling suitable brave the Wrynose Pass (east direction). Really enjoyed our stay at this lovely, beautiful character cottage.
