Description

Low Millgillhead is the perfect place to get together with family and friends.

You'll find three Georgian houses, all very different from each other, each with their own gardens and own privacy (all face in different directions), and you can book all three together to sleep up to 28 if you would like.

The main house, Low Millgillhead (sleeps 12), has an open fire, generous bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen and an acre of gardens.

Croft House is a stunning barn conversion (also sleeps 12) and there is an internal door connecting the barn to Low Millgillhead which is kept open if you take both together.

Rose Cottage is a small home on the end and provides accommodation for a further four people. The gardens are superb and cover three acres. Children particularly enjoy the secret garden hidden among the rhododendrons, accessed via a wooden bridge over a small stream.

Lamplugh is the perfect starting place to explore the rest of the Lake District.

Lamplugh is the perfect starting place to explore the rest of the Lake District. Loweswater Lake is your nearest lake being just three miles away. Here there are lovely woodland walks by the lake with an award winning pub at the end serving lovely meals and local ales. If you prefer big mountains, then Ennerdale lake is just four miles away with Pillar mountain range towering above it. There are also good mountain biking trails here, fishing (permit required), climbing, canoeing and pony trekking (on Cold Fell).

For shops, Cockermouth is your nearest town and has a Sainsburys, as well as a good selection of small independent shops. There are pubs, restaurants, cafes and a small cinema.

Location description from manager

The England region

The Lake District is a great place to come on holiday. There is beauty in all the seasons, from frosty weather in Winter where you will occasionally see sheep huddled under a blanket of snow, to the long balmy evenings in the Summer. My favourite time of year is September and October where the Autumn colours are magnificent. The daffodils in March/April and bluebells in May are just beautiful, and very restful.

Lamplugh

Scafell is England's highest mountain and a half hour drive takes you to the bottom, ready for the big climb up. The thing about the Lake District is that all the mountains here are manageable in a (sometimes long) day. If you don't fancy big climbs, then there are lovely walks through woods and alongside the lakes.

For a bit of adventure there is plenty to suit every level of experience - rock climbing, canoeing, abseiling, mountain biking, pony trekking and Go Ape at Whinlatter. All these experiences within half an hour of Croft House.

There are some superb stately homes, many of which are still lived in. Muncaster Castle is my favourite but there are plenty of others to choose from.

And if you have kids there is an indoor play area at Cockermouth (if it's raining). I like Trotters Exotic Animal Farm at Bassenthwaite. The outdoor play area at Whinlatter is amazing, and free (although you need to pay for parking). There is an aquarium at Maryport which is worth a visit (again, good if it's raining).

Other activities include rowing on the lake at Derwentwater (Keswick), go karting at Maryport or Rowrah, museums at Whitehaven and Keswick (I particularly like the Puzzling Place in Keswick, my kids like the Pencil Museum in Keswick and the Beacon at Whitehaven).

We go to the Kirkstile Inn at Loweswater for food. Cockermouth also has some very good restaurants - the Quince and Medlar is a veggie restaurant with a good reputation. The Bitter End is a good pub with good food.

Cockermouth is a lovely town with independent shops and a Sainsbury's. If antiques are your thing, you can spend a happy couple of hours browsing in Cockermouth. There is a small cinema here too, but if you want a multi-screen cinema, go to Dunmail Park in Workington. Workington also has high street shopping.
