Bobbin Mill Cottage

This Lakeland cottage is situated alongside the River Gilpin near the Cumbrian village of Crosthwaite.

Bobbin Mill Cottage is one of a number of conversions in an old mill property and with its location by the river down a beautiful country lane, this offers quality accommodation for a peaceful small family or two-couple holiday in the Lake District.

The ground floor boasts a high-quality open plan living area. Whether nestled around the TV in the cosy sitting area with its wood-burning stove or cooking up a treat in the large fully-equipped kitchen area to enjoy at the ample dining space, you can be sure that whatever your needs, the standards and finish in the cottage are of high quality. Upstairs are two cosy bedrooms, one double and one twin, to complete the cosy interior.

The exterior of the property offers the real ‘wow factor.’ Large landscaped gardens are shared between you and the occupants of the other properties in the building, with the river running immediately next to your cottage.

Riverside walks start outside your front door, and within a mile, you will reach the village of Crosthwaite to sample some local food and ale. The leisure club of Damson Dene is within the same distance, with complimentary membership available to pamper yourself during your stay.

Further afield lies the beauty of Windermere. All the waterside activities are available, from the energetic water-sports to a leisurely cruise on the lake, all just a ten-minute drive to some of the most stunning beauty the Lake District has to offer.

Bobbin Mill Cottage offers peaceful living in stunning grounds, making an ideal base for a couples or small family holiday in the Cumbrian countryside.

Two bedrooms: 1 x double and 1 x twin. Bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. Ground floor open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area.
