Excellent cottage in a good location...

Upon arriving at Mill Brow we were greeted by the owner who showed us how to use the facilities and then left us to our own devices to relax. The owner kindly left some milk so we could have the all important first cuppa after a long journey. The cottage was spotless and had some nice touches, for example a copy of the radio times. It is in a good location, a few miles from Ambleside so you are close enough for the facilities but outside the hustle and bustle of the town.
