Property Description

Nestling into a hillside in the beautiful Duddon Valley these delightful holiday cottages have been converted from a stone and slate built Bobbin Mill, constructed during the Industrial Revolution in the early 19th century. Brackens (LJ5) is a detached cottage on one level looking out onto the pretty grounds and brook, with spacious living/dining room. Coopers (LJ6) is on the upper level of the original mill with level access from the rear, with wonderful views along the Duddon Valley from its living room. Original beams, traditional furniture and lovely views characterise each cottage, whilst the peaceful lawned grounds with picnic bench overlooking the babbling brook (Hole House Gill) and 7 acres of natural woodland stretching up the hill, are there for guests’ enjoyment. Each cottage has its own sitting-out area with garden furniture. The whole area is a walker’s paradise, close to Eskdale and the Langdale Fells which are accessed via the stunning Hard Knott Pass, as well as Wasdale with amazing views of Wast Water. History is an important part of this beautiful western Lake District area and Muncaster Castle is a short drive away, a superb day out for all the family. The steam train can be boarded at Ravenglass and a trip along Eskdale is not to be missed. A scenic drive to Duddon Bridge leads to the pretty small market town of Broughton-in-Furness which has very good pubs and eating places, as well as shops. Just a few miles further is the South Lakes Wild Animal Park at Dalton, whilst three miles of clean award-winning sandy beaches stretch from Haverigg northwards along the coastline. Shop 1 mile, pub 3 miles.

Level access to first floor: Beamed living room with open fire and view along Duddon Valley. Beamed well-equipped kitchen/dining room. Double bedroom with 5ft bed. Twin bedroom. Single bedroom. Bathroom with over-bath shower. Separate toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The cottage was very cosy warm and comfortable. Oct 2012.
  2. Very comfortable cottage, far enough off the beaten track to have a peaceful holiday at a peak time in a popular area. July 2012.
  3. A lovely, cosy cottage. The most comfortable beds in any cottage we have stayed in! Feb 2012.
  4. A really comfortable well equipped cottage with little extras like bottled water and tea and biscuits on arrival.Lovely garden with a beck adjacent and superb views. The kitchen area was a little small but we didn’t do much cooking as had excellent meals in nearby pubs! June 2011.
  5. It was great that it was all on the same level. It was in a lovely setting just by the river( which was perfect for washing our dogs paws in - they also provided dog towels which was a lovely touch) and there were lots of fantastic walks to be had straight from the property. The owner had a folder of laminated walks that could be taken out with you. The log fire was really cosy in the evening and we enjoyed watching the birds come to the bird table in the courtyard through the kitchen window whilst we ate our breakfast. I also liked the antique furniture which seemed perfect in this setting. Feb 2011.
  6. Beautiful property in peaceful location. Sept 2010.
  7. Well equipped, immaculate, ideally located and very welcoming and thoughtful owners. June 2010.
  8. The welcoming and homely feel, plus great views of the valley and local walks. Oct 2009.
  9. Very comfortable with a high degree of decoration. Much thought had been given to the surroundings and the ambiance and atmosphere reflected this, together with the historical context of the mill. Sept 2009.
  10. Lovely position in the Lake district. Away from the crowds but places were easy to get to and lots to do nearby. Loved the cottage - full of character. Watched woodpeckers on the bird table while having breakfast. Had everything we needed. Aug 2009.
  11. Bobbin Mill is a wonderful cottage and very thoughtfully equppied. The owner was very friendly and helpful and we would like to return. April 2008.
  12. The cottage was full of character and perfect in size. Fantastic location, being right on top of extremely beautiful and accessible foot paths. I really do hope to return to this particular site. Perfect. March 2008.
