About The Watermill

Rutter Falls Holiday Cottages are in a truly magnificent location, nestling at the bottom of a picturesque waterfall within the beautiful Eden Valley in Cumbria. Located close to the Lake District, these two welcoming holiday cottages are presented to a high standard and provide a perfect getaway at any time of the year.

The site that The Watermill and Ford Cottage sit on is of historical interest and dates back as far as the 16th Century. Sitting in its own nature reserve, the location is the perfect place to relax and unwind whilst watching deer, red squirrels, dippers, heron, kingfishers, gold crest and many more. You may even see spawning salmon at the right time of year! An exciting newcomer is the elusive otter.

The Eden Valley is one of Cumbria's best kept secrets with its beautiful lush meadows and rolling fields, edged with hedgerows and dry stone walls, giving a sense of wide open space. With lovely quiet roads, this area is ideal for cycling enthusiasts and the countryside and fells provide excellent walking opportunities with many paths to choose from.

Close by are the market towns of Appleby and Kirkby Stephen where you will find historic buildings and a range of lovely independent shops offering antiques, crafts and local specialities. Within easy reach you also have the Northern Lakes along with North Cumbria, the beautiful Pennines and the Scottish Borders a little further afield and all providing great days out.

If you are a keen walker, would like to discover the natural beauty of the Eden Valley, or are simply looking for a magical setting to escape and relax, Rutter Falls Holiday Cottages are a very good choice.
