Overlooking a meandering river, this gorgeous property is a tranquil setting for an unforgettable staycation. Based in a charming apartment in a former mill, you’ll be just 5 miles from the iconic Lake Windermere, placing you close to a plethora of water sports, golf and fishing opportunities. Sleeping four guests across two bedrooms, the property boasts charming interiors, stunning views and a delightful shared garden with a pretty stream running alongside it.

Step through the private entrance into the garden room, a peaceful interlude before heading through to the main property. An open fire in the lounge/diner sets the scene, providing a cosy sanctuary for those chilly winter evenings where only fine wine and delicious food will do. Curl up on the sofas with a book, or gather around the table for sumptuous suppers crafted in the country-cottage-style kitchen. You’ll have everything you need to transform local ingredients into fabulous feasts, or why not pack up a picnic and head outside to enjoy the grounds – please note that the river is not enclosed. An elegant bathroom and separate shower room are just the ticket for a spot of pampering, and two bedrooms guarantee a restful night’s sleep after a busy day.

Discover Windermere by boat, disembarking to explore the bustling town Ambleside, or venturing to Lakeside and Newby Bridge. Bowness-on-Windermere, 5 miles away, is the nearest spot to hop on board a scenic cruise, and you’ll be mesmerised by the stunning mountain views and glorious islands dotted across the serene water. Budding historians will appreciate a day trip to Sizergh Castle, a National Trust property 9 miles away with sweeping gardens and a fascinating history. If you are feeling energetic, scale the heights of Whitbarrow Scar 5 miles away, refuelling with a pint of local ale in friendly Witherslack.

Beautiful location very quiet and peaceful. Apartment is well furnished, comfortable and has everything you could possibly want. Very comfortable beds. The only let down was the apartment has a very strong smell of dampness and for all there were several air fresheners around the house it done little to mask the problem, as my wife sufferers from mRead moreild asthma this was a major problem to her.

The flat was very spacious, excellently equipped and felt very much like a well loved home. Lovely outdoor area with good access to walking routes and a short drive to lake Windermere. We had a relaxing stay.

Spacious and well equipped cottage which is well furnished and comfortable for a family of 4. Nice and quiet location if a little tricky to find down the narrow lanes. It is well located for Bowness/Windermere though via car only. The cottage was musty on arrival and felt like it needed a good airing, particularly in the wardrobes. But it was a verRead morey comfortable stay. We did suffer quite a lot noise disturbance from the property above - maybe the family were loud and they had kids and a dog. Hide

The location of the cottage was very good, the beds were most comfortable and the living area was great for relaxing in. Our biggest problem was the hob and oven. Sometimes we couldn't get the grill and/or various hobs to work. We read and reread the instructions but sometimes we couldn't get one or the other to work.

We had a really great time at Mill House. It's a very clean and modern apartment. The location is alright, very much depends where you want to go to in The Lakes. For us we booked it before we knew that and once we arrived we realised most of what we were doing/going was always a bit of a trek. The only issue we had was that we could hear the upstaRead moreirs neighbour walking and playing music (quite loud) at times, mostly in the lounge/dining area. Hide

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
