Take a moment and enjoy the views of the beautiful, open tree-lined farmland from the window seat in the living room, or get cosy by the wood burner. Upstairs, two double bedrooms have ornamental Victorian original cast iron fireplaces, and the large bathroom with a freestanding roll-top bath, wooden panelled walls and underfloor heating completes the picture.

Other nearby attractions include Muncaster Castle, where you can meet the owls, Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway, a perfect day out for the children, and on a rainy day, visit the historic harbour of Whitehaven and the superb Beacon Heritage Centre and Rum Story.

    this cottage is pet friendly with a very secure garden and sturdy gate and fences which appear newly done, although when we visited the grass was so over grown it was difficult to clean up after small dogs, ours only used the yard area. some attention is needed on the yard door lock as the button is missing to hold the sneck back, too easy for the door to close behind you and lock yourself out....as i found out !! Cottage lacks an onsite owners touch, and needs some TLC. We appreciated Debs local knowledge on dog friendly places to visit and thank you we loved St Bees.

    A lovely cottage and the garden is secure for your dogs to enjoy. It's well located for easy access to the coast and the fells. The utility room in the basement was very handy. I would not recommend to anyone old and infirm though as the steps both in the cottage and in the garden are too steep to be easily negotiated.

    The cottage was absolutely lovely. It was perfect for the 3 dogs we had and also the bedrooms were very nice. There were a lot of very thoughtful touches, all the extras for the dogs and the kitchen is very well equip (except for the lack of a caffetiere) although there was a coffee maker. The garden is lovely and secure. The only thing really missing was the fact that we were expecting to be able to light a log fire but the bags by the fire were empty and we were unable to have the fire after a long wet walk. I would recommend this cottage if you are looking to have long walks on the beach or around the local lakes.

    Cottage was nice and warm when we arrived and everywhere was clean. A note advising that the gas man hadn't arrived to service the cooker was left for us, but as we were only there for 3 nights wasn't a problem. The weather was pretty abysmal which meant we left for home after only 2 nights, not the owners fault, but I did scratch my head wondering why the floor has a light coloured carpet when there are dogs allowed - by no means a complaint just an observation, but we were worried about the dogs coming in and out making the carpet dirty. I couldn't get a phone signal and I guess if you are on holiday a phone signal might not be a priority for some, but wifi would have been useful here. I saw a hub but couldn't detect a signal. There is a garage nearby where you can buy some provisions, though we didn't go there. There is a dog friendly pub a couple of minutes around the corner, which we did. House was well stocked with equipment and had we needed it there was a washing machine in the basement. The garden was nice with a patio and grassed area with views across the fields. Had the weather been better we would have stayed, but I suppose in December wherever you go you take a risk.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I am sorry I have no control over the weather. Pets can access the secure garden via the kitchen door which has a stone floor and we do provide free of charge dog towels and throws which pets can walk over/lie on. We do try to provide some comfort for our human guests too... As you say, the cottage is warm, clean, well stocked with equipment and comfortable. Thank you for your comments.

    We loved Sawmill cottage. Everything was provided and the cottage was extremely dog friendly with a beautiful secure garden. The cottage is in a great location for exploring the western lakes, whilst being nicely secluded and peaceful. We will definitely return to Sawmill in the future

    As we hadn't booked for any dogs, we were rather surprised to find bowls, etc, laid for them on opening the door. There have been other comments about the oven, the regulo obviously isn't working! The central heating had obviously been asleep all summer because we couldn't wake it up again, but we did manage the underfloor heating in the bathroom. The beds were extremely comfortable! We loved the walk by the River Calder and all in all enjoyed our stay on our first visit to the Western Lake

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; The heating would not come on because unfortunately, someone had switched the boiler off. This has been rectified. Thank you for your comments - glad you enjoyed your visit. Hope to welcome you back soon.
