The property

Cartmel 2 miles. Old Watermill is a superb, 17th century water mill situated in the delightful village of Allithwaite, Cumbria. Originally erected in the 1600s, this watermill was once a hub of activity, grinding grains with the soothing symphony of cascading water as its soundtrack; now it is a wonderfully presented holiday home for families, friends and couples looking to explore the area. Step into the open-plan living space, a stunning, triple aspect room with high ceilings and a wonderful social space. The fitted kitchen is sure to encourage home-cooking, offering a breakfast bar, double electric oven and hob, integrated dishwasher, fridge/freezer and even a washing machine for your laundry needs. Serve culinary delights at the dining table before moving to the sitting area and cosying up before the woodburning stove. Venture upstairs to discover the bedrooms, offering a master king-size with Jack & Jill en-suite shower, a double bedroom with en suite and an adult bunk, each neutrally presented, whilst the family shower room is a contemporary spot to freshen up. Escape to the patio garden and enjoy a moment amidst peaceful surroundings; this is a lovely place to reflect on the day’s activities or enjoy a morning coffee. Just a moment’s stroll away is an excellent pub, The Pheasant Inn, where you can share stories over a pint or head to the village green for a picnic, framed by centuries-old trees and surrounded by charming cottages.
