Friendly stylish + cosy double in a converted 18th Century watermill. In an idyllic riverside setting outside the villages of Sockbridge + Tirril, 3 miles from M6 J40. Artists' studios and gallery on site, locally sourced food, home baking, log burner in guest sitting room. Large adjacent private bathroom with power shower. We regret we don't accept pets.

The space
There has been a mill at Sockbridge for at least 250 years, so we are lucky to live in a beautiful location steeped in the History of Cumberland. The surrounding countryside is teeming with wildlife, and visitors can go for pleasant walks by the River Eamont.
Gary and I are both practising artists, and we are very happy to show visitors around our two studios on-site, where we make paintings and prints.
It goes without saying that you will be treated to a lovely breakfast including home-made bread, and locally sourced produce!

Guest access
The guest sitting room in the restored wheel room of the mill has a cosy log fire, TV, a good selection of books, and a piano.

Other things to note
Sockbridge Mill is a 'Bed and Breakfast', so you can't normally self- cater.
We don't have ground floor accommodation, so if you are concerned about accessibility, please give us a ring first.

Location

Sockbridge, United Kingdom

Sockbridge Mill is located next to the River Eamont which you can access via a public bridal path that runs past the house. There is abundant wildlife here, and you may see herons, woodpeckers, stoats, hares, and occasionally red squirrels. The villages of Sockbridge and Tirril are a 20 minute walk away, which is perfect for a trip to the village pub for dinner or a pint. Lake Ullswater is just 3 miles away.
