Millers Loft


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 in the shared courtyard there is a bench seat 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 a plump sofa 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 an oak wood double bed and occasional furniture. 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 centered 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.

 Guest Reviews

Perfect break away, cottage in ideal location and a short journey away from amazing sightseeing.
In the four days we visited Ambleside,|Coniston, Scafell Pike and dined out at L'Enclume in Cartmel, well worth the money! Outstanding Michelin experience.'
Sarah and Phil 
Thank you for a lovely stay at Miller's Loft.
The cottage was very well equipped and in a perfect location for lots of lovely walks in the lakes.
Will definitely consider another visit and will recommend to friends. Thank you, Emma & Al.
The cottage is well equipped and the drying rack is ingenious and worked well.  The ferry ride on Lake Windermere, our visits to Wordsworth's Dove Cottage and Beatrix Potter's Hill Top and gallery were high points.  One thing we loved about the cottage was the art work, also everything about this special place was done in good taste and one reason we enjoyed coming back to it each night.   Mayley and John Perkins.  USA.
