Starnthwaite Ghyll is a riverside hamlet converted from the former Bobbin Mill and is now a traditional Lakeland built group of cottages and apartments on the banks of the River Gilpin with extensive lawned gardens. There is walking from the door following the path of the river from where you can appreciate the abundance of local bird and wildlife. This is a great area for cycling through the Lyth Valley, known for its damsons, and through the country lanes.
