This gem though made everything run smoothly. owners nearby with help and advice. super stores a short drive-away. surrounding countryside like a post card. with walks and fishing, pubs and restaurants plentiful this is a truly perfect location. value for money? you would struggle to find anywhere in this country for such money, I would of paid double.”

    • “Booked absolute last minute. Found online on Sat, arrived for a four night stay on the Monday. Expected little with the short notice, but how amazed we were to find this charming, cosy and homely little haven. We were made extremely welcome by Logan, who took his time showing us how to work the wonderful Aga, told us some of the history of the beautiful cottage, and showed us around. I'm very impressed that the fuel for the fire didn't cost extra. The traditional feel of the cottage adds to the experience. You'd be forgiven for thinking you'd gone back in time....with all mod cons thrown in too! Clean, cosy, welcoming and friendly. Out of the way enough to be peaceful, but close enough to towns and amenities for convenience. My little girls loved their stay in "Mrs Tiggywinkles Cottage", with so many wonderful features. We will definitely return,”

    • “Our party consisted of myself, my husband , parents and our dog. We all received a very warm welcome from Jeanie on our arrival. Mill cottage is delightful loads of charm and its stocked with everything you could possibly need. It's in a great location very quiet and peaceful, yet not far from The lakes. It was very warm, cozy, clean and quite spacious for a cottage. Jeanie and Logan were very helpful with telling us the best places to visit, eat and walk the dog. Would definatley stay here again when visiting the Lake District.”

    • “Just returned from 5 days at Mill Cottage. Cottage was everything we could have asked or wished for. Plenty of charm and character, log fire for cosy nights and aga range which was on constantly kept the cottage nice and snug. More than big enough for our party of 6 adults and 2 large dogs. Everything was of a very high standard, the owners had thought of everything. All logs and coal was supplied as were other supplies we wouldnt have expected. Owners made us very welcome showing us how everything worked and were everything was. Didnt intrude into our space, but let us know were they were if anything was needed, pounted us in the direction of some good walks for the dogs and told us the best routes for sight seeing. All of us agreed we would definetly return and would recommend this cottage to others. Thank you xx”

    • “Very pleased with this cottage, booked last minute 5 night break and wish we'd had longer. The cottage was superb, beautifully decorated with lots of interesting features. The open fire and Aga were lovely touches. We really couldn't have asked for any better accommodation. Good location for accessing local amentities in Windermere, Ambleside and Kendal. We did a fair bit of walking around the local area. Would happily go back!”

    • “Character cottage - quaint, homely, beautiful Open fire, comfortable seating Brilliant aga - great for getting around as a family with hot drinks, and the outdoor kit drying out in an instant Didn't want to go out, as the place was so lovely, but when we did - great walks and cycles from the door, beautiful valley "hidden gem" - I've come to the Lakes for years and never knew about it.”

    • “great place, lovely flagstone floors, aga in the kitchen which is on all the time, perfect for drying wet clothes after the inevitable walk in the rain. lots of toys for young children and board games for older people. Good sounding stereo (bring some CDs) and an open log fire with a guard for safety (not that I can keep a fire going). Wifi is in next house and only worked for me held up to a window or on the kitchen worktop so for anything other than specific use (eg check your email, quick browse) it's not there. No phone signal either but there is a phone (pay phone or incoming). Still you probably want to get away from all that. Lovely walks on hills in immediate vicinity and of course 15mins from Windermere.”

    • “Cosy, warm cottage with really welcoming and helpful owners. The cottage ticked every box especially once we'd lit the fire and tucked into a bottle of red. The owners couldn't have been more welcoming (but don't worry they weren't intrusive!) and had no issue in helping us out once we'd found out we'd arrived without our towels. Thoroughly recommend a stay here.”

    • “The owners Logan & Jeannie were most welcoming & could not do enough to make us feel at home. Mill Cottage is extremely clean, cosy, comfortable & well equipped. We enjoyed cooking on the Aga & sitting around the log fire. Our dogs loved all the walks. The scenery was stunning & everything was right on our doorstep. Logan recommended some beautiful routes to suit our abilities. All in all a great holiday in a lovely cottage. Highly recommended.”

    Mr Eves, HORSHAM, October 2018

    • “The cottage is one of the best we have ever stayed at ! Lovely owners next door,on hand if you need anything at all, the setting of this small hamlet is totally beyond picture box perfect. Great open fire and Aga, lovely comfortable beds, the property is all beams and quirky cupboards,no phone signal but the free unlimited Wi-Fi is great. 10/10 we will definitely be returning !”

    • “We had a very relaxing time, there was everything we needed and more, Jeanie and Logan were great, and on hand if we needed anything, but not intrusive. I got to grips cooking on the Aga, and dog quickly felt at home, and was soon in protective mode thinking she owned the place. The weather was not great, but we would love to go again”

    Mrs Vousden, Reading, August 2018

    • “We loved the warm welcome that Jeanie and Logan gave us when we arrived. They not only explained about Mill cottage, but about the history of the cottage and the surrounding area. Also advised us about the local supermarkets and places where to eat. The cottage was homely and really comfortable. If you wanted somewhere peaceful and tranquil to enjoy your holiday break with excellent hosts, then this cottage is the place for you. 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. Our little dog -Miah loved it as well.”

    Mrs Kinsey, Leigh-on-Sea, June 2018

    • “We had a fab time staying at this cottage with our 3 boys and dog. The property was very clean and the owners were more than helpful. The only thing that let it down, and this is the only thing!, was the shower was not very good. we did, however, have the option of using the bath.”

    Mrs Adams, NEWARK, April 2018

    • “Absolutely lovely accommodation in lovely setting. We too our elderly parents along and they too loved everything about the property and the area, and the welcoming hosts. We would highly recommend this property.”
