  • Beautiful period property
  • Perfect for outdoor enthusiasts
  • Fantastic location
Situated in the Lickle Valley, Mill Cottage is located down a quiet country lane within the small hamlet of Broughton Mills. A place where upon opening the front door you instantly feel welcome, a real home from home. Lovingly cared for by its owners Linda & Neil, Mill Cottage is the perfect retreat for friends, families and outdoor enthusiasts alike.

A typical Lakeland porch invites you into the whitewashed property and doubles up as an ideal place to discard your walking boots, there’s even a stone bench to help. Upon entering the cottage the inviting & spacious sitting room is full of charm and character - beamed ceiling, stone hearth with real fireplace, stone & parquet flooring covered with rugs & plenty of comfortable seating.

From the sitting room you enter the light and airy kitchen which extends out into the dining conservatory, which offers spectacular panoramic views of the valley and out into the cottage garden. There is also a small utility area with w.c available just off the kitchen.Up a couple of steps from the far end of the sitting room is a separate entrance room with additional door to the driveway. This room is complete with boot rack, hooks, large downstairs bathroom & an air sourced heating system, the perfect place for leaving your outdoor clothes to air out. Throughout the property walking guides, books and mountain prints adorn the bookshelves and walls, reflecting the owner’s enthusiasm for the great outdoors.

Following the stairs up you have the option of turning left or right, turn left and you are presented with a comfortable twin room along with a cosy double room which offers fantastic views of the valley beyond straight from the bed. Adjacent to the double room you will find one of the upstairs bathrooms, spacious enough for sharing between the two rooms. Wooden beams which cross the ceilings and walls work in harmony with the uneven floors upstairs to add to the cottages warm character.

Head back to the stairwell and turn left and you are presented with the spacious master bedroom and another bathroom. The master bedroom with large window and skylight offers a bright and private hideaway for the grown-ups, complemented by a feature bed and antique furniture. The bathroom adjacent, which is grand in size features a full sized central island bath, separate shower and views across the rear of the garden and fields beyond.

Outside you will find the spectacular cottage garden, a collection of paths, lawns and terraces which wrap around the property. Lovingly cared for by the owners, the garden offers several secluded seating areas which are perfect for helping you sit back & unwind whilst enjoying the surrounding woodland and fell side views. Please note that due to the nature of the steps into the top section of the garden we advise that care be taken during wet weather.

There are many great walks from the door including the famous Dunnerdale horseshoe. In the nearby Duddon Valley there are many rock climbs and bridleways for bike rides linking both valleys. Further details can be found within the property. The beauty of this cottage is that it really does enjoy the best of both worlds. A traditional country cottage in an idyllic location, combined with the proximity of all local amenities. The Blacksmiths Arms a quintessential Lakeland pub is a mere 200 yards from the front door and the market town of Broughton in Furness a 5 minute drive away. Lakeland villages of Coniston and beyond can be reached within 15 minutes by car along with the vast & peaceful beaches, such as Silecroft found on the western coast.

To conclude this idyllic hideaway is a must for romantics, friends, families, outdoor enthusiasts and those wishing to escape it all even if just for a few days.
