Mill Brow Cottage - Skelwith Bridge, Nr Ambleside, Cumbria, The Lake District, England - Sleeps 4

Mill Brow Cottage

Mill Brow Cottage sleeps up to four guests in two bedrooms and nestles amongst glorious countryside just two and a half miles from Ambleside in the heart of the Lake District National Park. With a pub a short walk away, wonderful walks out onto the fells straight from the cottage front door and an abundance of attractions within easy reach, this welcoming Four Star cottage is a perfect retreat for your holiday in the Lakes.

A good choice for families and couples (one or two), Mill Brow Cottage sits on a small Cumbrian Lakeland farm and provides a nice mix of traditional charm with modern conveniences to ensure your stay is comfortable at any time of the year.

Located at Skelwith Bridge, this picturesque area is a paradise for walkers and offers the opportunity for peace and tranquility, whilst enjoying the convenience of easy access to the many popular tourist hot spots of the area. These include the bustling town of Ambleside (just two and a half miles away) with its great range of shops, pubs, restaurants and attractions including the impressive Stock Ghyll Force waterfall, and Waterhead Pier where you can catch a steamer to Lakeside and Bowness; the market towns of Kendal (known for its mint cake) and Keswick; Lake Windermere, the country's largest lake; Grasmere which is home to the famous gingerbread; Hawkshead with its quaint little streets that were walked many times by Beatrix Potter; Tree Trek at Brockhole Visitor Centre and Go Ape for a tree top adventure at Grizedale Forest; Tarn Hows, one of the area's most popular picturesque small lakes with a lovely circular walk (beautiful place for a picnic); and Coniston Water offering lots to keep water sports enthusiasts occupied (and walkers for those brave enough to tackle The Old Man).

The area is a vast outdoor playground, that not only offers superb walking but also wonderful cycling (on and off-road), horse riding at Coniston, fishing, golf, kayaking, sailing and birdwatching. There are also attractions to keep all ages occupied in any weather including Holker Hall country house close to Cartmel (the birth place of the famous sticky toffee pudding), The Lakes Aquarium on Windermere, Haverthwaite Steam Railway, Beatrix Potter Gallery in Hawkshead and Dove Cottage in Grasmere where Wordsworth lived and wrote some of his finest works to name just a few.
