A long weekend at Old Millers Cottage in Milldale was a welcome break. With long walks on the doorstep and the Watts Russell Arms a mile up the road serving a nice variety of meals and local beers, it was ideally positioned for the two of us and our small dogs. The cottage is well presented, compact et bijou, warm and cosy. The George in Alstonfield also provided a lovely atmosphere for dinner and is also only a few minutes drive away. Owner was very helpful with all arrangements.
Thoroughly recommend for a break with a difference..
The property is lovely and actually larger than expected. The photos don’t show the main lounge. All nicely done out and well furnished. Plenty of wood available for the log burner which was handy, in winter. The snug/dining room layout was useful to rest tired kiddies, in sight, whilst cooking.
It’s worth parents of younger children knowing that there are no board games, toys, books, stairgates, cot bed, high chair etc. (so take your own) and the tiny single room didn’t quite accommodate our cot bed (18m old slept in our room - either double fitted the cot bed but we’d booked a 3 bed to avoid infant in with us). Also, the garden/outside bit is not enclosed and close to the road.
Jo, the owner, is helpful and quick the respond to any questions or queries.
Overall, a pleasant place in a pretty village (close to play park) and we enjoyed our stay. Would stop again once all kids are sleeping in beds.
