Overview

This little property for two offers guests, romantic breaks, with easy access to the lakes, fells and the rugged coastline of the peninsular. Set in the little village of Lindale it is an ideal base to explore the undiscovered beauty spots of the south lakes and the peninsulas.

Miller's Loft was the old granary store and upper part of the 17C Miller's house. Outside at the front door there is a little bench area where you can sit in the sun and enjoy a glass of wine, all to the sound of rushing water from the nearby little beck and waterfall that once powered the mills water wheel.

Living Spaces

From the little shared courtyard and parking area you go up stone steps to the accommodation set all on one level.

The sitting room, kitchen and dining area are open plan. Rough cast walls, heavy beams along with two sofas sat in front of a log fire, combine to make a cosy room to wine and dine, or tuck up with a good book.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

The bedroom is comfortable with a super king-size divan and occasional furniture and added luxury of a wall mounted TV. The bathroom has a bath with overhead shower, hand basin and WC.

The Location

Lindale is quite delightful if very quiet, with craggy stone houses huddled together marching down the hill, where from the top you get a fine view of some lovely architecture with a backdrop of Morecambe Bay. There are two pubs, both serving local ale and pub food, and the village store for most day-to-day items.

You will have plenty of walks, notable is Hampsfell and Eggerslack Wood, a limestone fell and ancient woodland where the summit gives panoramic views of the Morecambe Bay and the Lake District Mountains, and where in spring the woodland is carpeted in bluebells. Another of the best is to pick up Cumbria's Coastal Way, where you can discover such gems as Humphrey Head or drive across the bay to Arnside for a great route down the bay shoreline, with miles of flat sands reaching out before you as the tide goes out - please note you must observe the bay warnings and stick to the edge.

Nearby is the village of Grange over Sands, a pretty Edwardian village that overlooks the bay where you will find an excellent grocer, Higginson's famous butchers, two bakers and local stores. On the prom there are nice gardens to stroll and in summer the prom hosts an outdoor art market. Finally Grange offers two golf clubs, both set in quite delightful countryside.

Over the fell from Grange is Cartmel, one of Cumbria's finest and unique villages. With ancient buildings, an impressive medieval priory, a towering arch and a sweet clear river along with the smallest National Hunt race course and a local brewery, this lively village is centred on a sunny square to gather and sit or wine and dine in one of the many welcoming inns or fine restaurants.

A mile out from Cartmel is Cark in Cartmel and Holker Hall, a magnificent country house open to the public with beautiful gardens, a cafe, gift shop and local produce food hall.

To the east is Kendal, south lakes main town offering a variety excellent stores, high end clothing shops, supermarkets and farmers markets, along with dining and a good cultural scene with great art galleries, theatre and cinema, where all make for a good a full day out. Overlooking the town are the remains of Kendal Castle, home to the Parr family and worth the climb to see these ancient ruins.

To the north of the village, clustered at the foot of Windermere lake, lies Newby Bridge, Lakeside and Fell Foot, the National Trusts parkland. Here you will find a couple of good inns, the Swan at Newby Bridge and, a mile further on, the Lakeside Hotel. From the latter you can hop on a steamer for a trip on the lake, which winds its way for ten miles into the central fells, passing on the way Bowness, Sawrey and finishing at the Waterhead terminus near Ambleside. At Fell Foot you can moor boats and hire row and sailing craft or simply swim and picnic by the shore. From Newby Bridge you can head north, through the Furness Fells, to explore the greater national park.

Over to the west lies Coniston Water, and in between the two great lakes is the Grizedale Forest, a day out in itself for walking or mountain biking. Beyond this lies the central massif of the Langdales for some high level walking and climbing.

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Great property with easy access to the lakes.

The cottage was exactly what we needed, the bed was extremely comfortable and there were enough kitchen facilities for us to eat in when we didnt want to eat out. It was a little chilly in places but thats to be expected in an old building.

Reviewed by Anthony 3rd September 2018

The cottage was really perfect for us to drive and see the whole of the lake district. It was nice to get away from all the crowds at the end of the day.

My partner and I stayed for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. Millers Loft is in the perfect location for exploring the southern Lake District. Despite the rain we were able to see a lot of the beautiful parts of the world, though our shoes got a bit muddy J. After our long days the loft was comfortable, homely and well equipped. We loved using thRead moree kitchen. The perfect get away. 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.
