Description

A characterful cottage with a cosy lounge and lots of original features. Walks from the door and just a short drive to southern Lakeland.

Millers Cottage is an 18th-century, stone-built, Lakeland detached house with a lot of character and a host of original features, such as slate flagged floors, oak beams and traditional doors. The cottage is very welcoming, warm and cosy, with a charming atmosphere. This holiday cottage makes the perfect ’home from home’ and a great place from which to explore this side of the South Lakes. It nestles at the end of a private narrow lane on the edge of the old village, surrounded by woodland. There is a children’s loft den (unheated), which is great for the family with lots of toys and games. On the doorstep is the Duddon Valley to the west of Coniston, arguably one of the ’undiscovered hidden gems’ of the Lake District National Park. There are great family walks from the door in many directions including those taking in the wonderful fells, waterfalls, crags & streams. Just a short drive from Coniston, Hawkshead, Ambleside, Grasmere, Windermere, Bowness, Tarn Hows and the Grizedale Forest. Beach 10 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    The cottage was fantastic with walk from the door, out the way and private. Plenty of space for everyone and the dog loved it. The only bad point in our eyes is it could be bettered if there was a downstairs toilet, plus the road to the house is a bit tight. Would have been a 10/10 from me as everything else was perfect. Thanks.

    Good points are the location, you are close enough to some of the bigger lakes but also far enough away from the mass of tourists. The village is lovely, with 3 good pubs, shops and a simply brilliant bakery and some excellent views as you walk to and from the cottage. The cottage itself is'nt great! The cleaning company employed to clean between guests should be challenged as general cleanliness was poor. All down stairs curtains need taking down and cleaning The rug in the breakfast room is disgusting Using a wipe down / reusable table cloth is fine but not when it's covered in stains for new guests! The cloth sofas have seen better days... A long time ago!! There are cob webs all over... I know it's an old cottage but this isn't good enough!! The downstairs bedroom is not fit for purpose and shouldn't really be used/marketed as such. A large party such as ours (6 adults & 2 children) will find the bathroom facilities sub standard... You only have the ensuit to shower in as anyone over 5 foot would find their head touching the shower over the bath in the main bathroom... There's also no water pressure from this so you are left to stand under a trickle. The master bedroom and ensuit are lovely even if you do go through the bathroom part to get to the bedroom. The log burners would not take, even with the purchase of fight lighters. A decent welcome book is left out for you with relevant info inside but having stayed in rental properties before we were disappointed there was no effort in terms of a welcome pack... Eg bread, milk,tea,coffee etc... Im not talking a weekly shop just £10 of essentials to get you started. We had a note left saying if the dishwasher leaks please call this number... We didn't use the dishwasher as a result. The lane to the cottage is tight and parking is only available for 2 cars but that's made clear before you book and so it wasn't a big deal. Overall we were disappointed with the cottage.

    Our group were delighted with this cottage. The kitchen is so well equipped and some of the finishing touches (such as providing firewood) were well received. The bedrooms are all very comfortable. The only downside is the parking can be a little bit tricky, but we were so happy with the overall stay, this didn't really matter.

    Lane is a bit narrow & bumpy with small parking/turning area but well worth the trouble. Will be returning next year.

    My family and I had a superb holiday. The cottage was extremely comfortable, well equipped and well located for many sightseeing places around the area. I would have marked it at 10 across the board except the approach road up to the cottage is very narrow and was a little bit overgrown. Inches to spare both sides of the car to stone walls or having to reverse to allow another car to pass was a challenge. Gordon

    Beautiful cottage with lovely garden and surroundings, my children loved the hide away toy space ! Would definitely return as the areas beautiful . Though we found the downstairs bedroom slightly damp so maybe shouldn't be used as an extra room .

    The cottage itself was fine. However the trip was blighted by the parking situation which was not made at all evident until - purposely I suspect - AFTER I had paid. Advertising an eight person cottage but only having parking for two cars (and extremely inflexible neighbours!) is ingenious at best. I strongly suspect that if the true situation was made clear - that any more than two cars have to be parked over 500 metres away at the end of an impossibly narrow lane - the volume of bookings would decrease significantly!! So I won't be returning and I urge the owners to be up front and honest about the parking rather than hide it until after monies have changed hands.

    The cottage is lovely and very well equipped. The host is very friendly. The cottage is down a long, narrow driveway - but that makes for a quiet spot. The children loved the woods nextdoor, and there are plenty of walks you can make from the doorstep. You have to walk through the ensuite to get to the main bedroom, but the rest of the cottage more than makes up for this oddity with its many 'character features'.
