Description

Force Mill enjoys one of the most picturesque locations in the Eden Valley, which is on the eastern side of Cumbria, on the fringe of the Lake District

Force Mill enjoys one of the most picturesque locations in the Eden Valley, which is on the eastern side of Cumbria, on the fringe of the Lake District. The whitewashed, sandstone cottage is positioned right on the beautiful Eden riverbank and overlooks a tumbling weir; this is a truly idyllic location. Force Mill is a delightful, detached, Grade II listed, stone farmhouse which has been completely transformed into an immaculate holiday home. Retaining its original cottage character, its charm is enhanced by beautiful furnishings and modern fittings, including super-fast broadband with a wireless download speed of approximately 30Mb/s.

Eden is a haven for peace, tranquillity and a vast variety of wildlife, perfect for ornithologists and country lovers. It is an outstanding area for walking, whether for a hike on the high open fells or a gentle riverside stroll. Cyclists will love the quiet country lanes and the C2C cycle route. Outdoor activities don’t stop here - why not try canoeing on Ullswater (10 miles), a spot of fishing on the doorstep for trout, salmon and grayling (by prior arrangement with the owners), pony trekking or golf in Penrith (6 miles). There are attractions for the whole family including a cruise on Ullswater, or a ride on a restored railway high in the North Pennines! Surrounded by dramatic landscapes including Ullswater and the north eastern fells, it is also close to both the borders of Scotland and the Yorkshire Dales. This secluded and unspoilt destination will inspire, rejuvenate and refresh visitors at any time of the year. A lively calendar of events adds to a holiday here with festivals of all kinds, country and craft fairs, farmers’ markets, and traditional agricultural shows to name just a few. Shops 3 miles, pub 1 mile.Eden Lacy is made up of three properties and enjoys one of the most picturesque locations in the Eden Valley, which is on the eastern side of Cumbria, on the fringe of the Lake District. All three cottages nestle in idyllic, scenic, rural settings overlooking the beautiful River Eden. They all also have super-fast broadband with a wireless download speed of approximately 30Mb/s. They are all very individual and are renovated, furnished and presented to a high standard.

Crakeld Holm (LM4) was originally a sandstone bank barn dating from the 18th century but is now transformed into a fabulous detached four-bedroom house. Much of the original character has been retained, in particular the main entrance with its lovely sandstone archway which leads into the original upper hayloft. This is now a dramatic open-plan living area and kitchen with traditional slit windows, hefty timber beams and high ceiling. The room itself is a showstopper, only bettered by the wonderful southerly view from the French windows and balcony out over the river and viaduct beyond. 

The Lodge (LM3) is peacefully tucked away with stunning views up the river valley. It is set at the side of a private lane which runs up to the owner’s house (though some distance away). Refurbished and decorated to a high standard, it provides charming all year round accommodation for couples looking for tranquillity or even romance.

Force Mill (LNG) is a delightful, detached, Grade II listed, stone farmhouse which has been completely transformed into an immaculate holiday home. Retaining its original cottage character, its charm is enhanced by beautiful furnishings and modern fittings. Positioned right on the beautiful riverbank by a weir, this is a truly idyllic location.

    The photos don’t do it justice. The most beautiful setting and sweet little cottage. A real treat to get away from everything. Lots d swimming in the river and long walks. Will definitely be back!!

    Location is fantastic. Inside furnishings we found uncomfortable. Storage in double bedroom inadequate. outdoor seating for 3, not 6 and BBQ non-functioning due to damage.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thanks for your response, always appreciated. The BBQ is actually fine and is in the shed by the property and the outdoor chairs in the barn by the property. This is where they are all stored over winter. You just had to ask, but all are now out and ready to use.

    A stunning location accessed by a farm type track, (could be challenging for low sports cars). The owners are charming and the facilities offered covered all our needs. Its worth a short car journey to the Fetherston Arms in Kirkaswald, where you may be assured of a warm welcome and the added bonus that it appears to be the only local pub that opens all day!

    We had a great time at Force Mill. The location is breathtaking and the cottage is quite comfortable and clean. However there were many spiders on the roofs and it was near impossible to keep the flies out in the peak of summer. Nevertheless we still had a great time exploring the beautiful river. Would definitely recommend!
