Mill, Appleby

The Mill
Waterfalls, Refurbished Mill and pretty rural surroundings.
This is "Chocolate Box" photo time. This is what you imagine Americans would love. This is England. This is what we are proud of. Our heritage and beauty. We can bow down to the people who spend their money refurbishing old buildings and then allowing us to stop here to escape from our normal mundane lives. When I stay here I feel I should make bread, eat W.I. jams and shop in organic shops. This quirky, fabulous property set in a nature reserve is quite special.

Relax, unwind, and watch red squirrels, deer, dippers, kingfishers, heron, goldcrest and lots more. Even spawning salmon at the right time of year! The quiet roads are ideal for cycling enthusiasts, and the countryside and fells provide excellent walking opportunities.

In the nearby market towns of Appleby and Kirkby Stephen, you will find historic buildings, a range of delightful small shops offering crafts, antiques and local specialities. The Northern Lakes are all very accessible as are trips to North Cumbria, the Pennines and the Scottish Borders.
