Hartsop is a haven for photographers being a designated Conservation Area, noted for its pretty lakeland-stone traditional cottages and spinning galleries, Mill Cottage is surrounded by high mountains, and is an ideal base from which to explore and walk. If you are a walker, leave your car at the cottage, and start your walks at the front door. All levels of interest and ability are provided for. Situated at the bottom of the Kirkstone Pass and close to Ullswater, the cottage provides a central base for exploring the whole of the Lakes. The cottage is surprisingly spacious for three adults, and has an upside-down design, the main room and kitchen being on the first floor to take advantage of the lovely panoramic mountain views. The use of natural wood is a special feature of the cottage, notably the exposed beams, pitched rafters and hardwood floors. In particular, local ash wood has been used extensively for doors, architraves, skirting boards and floors. All first floor rooms have high pitched ceilings and the main room has a cosy wood-burning stove. The entrance hall and utility room have local green slate flooring. On the ground floor, the main bedroom, overlooking the garden and stream, has a king-size bed and the second bedroom has a single bed with guest bed suitable for a child. The bathroom is on the first floor and a bathroom is adjacent to the bedrooms. The utility room provides facilities for supporting activities on the patio, which overlooks the garden and stream. Change over is on a Sunday, arrival time 16.00 and departure 10.00. Electricity, linen and a starter wood pack are included in the tariff. The cottage is for non-smokers only and sorry, no pets. We ask our guests to provide their own personal towels, though we can supply them at a small additional cost.

“Perfect and beautiful Cottage for a retreat away from the City!”
I loved my stay at Mill Cottage, it was gorgeous and exactly what I had wanted. It was spotless and beautifully decorated, there was even a Christmas tree and other Christmassy foliage displays which were a lovely touch. Everything was catered for and I was left a lovely bottle of wine for my arrival. It's a very warm and cosy cottage and the surrounding views and area are truly stunning! I felt very at home and safe, as I was travelling on my own. Mel and Hilary were very forthcoming with information and making sure that I got there safely and was settled in on arrival (they were away for the Christmas break) and had everything that I needed, they also made sure that I could get hold of them in case anything should go wrong. I absolutely loved my stay and can't wait to visit again! I will be going back, hopefully this Summer.
“Wonderful stay in cosy cottage in the heart of the fells and lakes”
We had a wonderful stay in this lovely little cottage which is beautiful situated amidst the lakes and mountains with a bubbling stream at the bottom of the garden. There are absolutely superb views from the cottage. We received excellent service from Mel and Hilary, who were warm and friendly and very helpful. The cottage was well equipped and had Sky and wifi. There are beautiful walks for all abilities from the doorstep of the cottage and a lovely pub a short walk away.
