The little village of Lindale lies to the south of the Lake District and close to the popular “foodie” village of Cartmel, a short drive from Lake Windermere, a great choice of country walks in the Lyth Valley and the popular village of Grange Over Sands.
As the name suggests, The Millers Loft was originally part of the old Millers Cottage forming part of the 17th Century corn mill. The owners have created a lovely, homely, first floor, cottage apartment for two offering a lovely bolthole to which to retreat and relax.

Millers Loft is situated in the pretty village of Lindale that lies between the sands of Morecambe Bay and the stunning scenery of the Lake District.
Situated just a couple of miles from the beautiful Edwardian town of Grange-over-Sands, Kents Bank boasts its own railway station with easy access to and from Manchester airport and the Lancashire towns. The property is within easy reach from the sleepy picture postcard village of Cartmel which has grown up around its famous 12th Century medieval Priory Church. Although steeped in history, Cartmel is not trapped in time and the village offers today's visitors many modern surprises in the form of fine quality attractions, shops, a wide variety of traditional Lakeland inns and cutting-edge gourmet restaurants, including the internationally acclaimed Michelin Star restaurant, L'Enclume. Around the village square you will discover a delightful assortment of genuine 16th - 18th century buildings. Cartmel is also known for its famous racecourse where meetings are regularly held throughout the year.
Ideally located to explore the wonders of the English Lake District, being 8 miles from Newby Bridge at the foot of Windermere where you can easily get to Bowness, Ambleside and Keswick. The Lyth Valley lies behind Cartmel Fell to the east of Lake Windermere. The valley is known for its serene agricultural landscapes, its vibrant damson blossom (and harvest – look out for locally made damson jam and damson gin from the valley in the local artisan food and farm shops) in spring, and its widely-acclaimed Lake District gastropubs including The Punchbowl at Crosthwaite and The Mason's Arms at Strawberry Bank and Hare and Hounds at Bowland Bridge.
Not far away is the market town of Ulverston, the birthplace of Stan Laurel. You can see the house he was born in and visit the Laurel and Hardy museum. There is a wonderful bronze statue of Stan and Ollie outside the Coronation Hall.
