and sustainable on a working smallholding
a great starting point for quiet walks…
Rose Cottage (sleeps 2-4, one double, one twin, both with en-suites) is over the old stone bridge from Higher North Mill just up the traffic-free lane from Quack Cottage. South-facing and slightly elevated it gets plenty of sun.
Long sweeping views over the stream and down the valley are the perfect accompaniment to alfresco dining on the large deck. There’s a picnic bench with sunshade and outdoor chairs, and a bbq. Above the raised banks of the decking is a small lawn, then a steeply-sloping flower and shrub bank behind. It’s fully fenced and ideal for kids and dogs to run around on.
Your own woodshed is opposite the cottage and there’s plenty of parking. The lane becomes a track ‘Unsuitable for Vehicles’ beyond the cottage and is a great starting point for quiet walks. You’re welcome to enjoy the shared lawns by the stream too where there’s further seating and a firepit.
Rose Cottage offers you a big, bright, sunny kitchen with a wooden window seat. It has a fully-fitted modern kitchen with electric cooker, microwave, kettle toaster, firdge-freezer and its own washing machine. The living room is cosy and comfy with a sofa and easy chairs, and a well-stocked bookcase. Elm wood panelling, stone walls, a tiled floor with rugs and a wood-burning stove make both these rooms warm and homely. This is a very warm and cosy cottage.
Upstairs are two bedrooms: one double with an en-suite bathroom, and one twin with en-suite shower room. The rooms feature low window sills to make the most of the valley views and sky lights to bring in plenty of light.
We stayed at Mill Cottage, which was lovely in a great position for children to run around and feel safe, in the beautiful surroundings . The cottage was well equipped with everything you could need, Christine, Jade and John, were great hosts…
