There are 6 bedrooms with two en suite bathrooms and a separate bathroom.

The gardens at Low Millgillhead are extensive with a large mature gardens to the front of the house, and a terraced garden to the back.

Lamplugh is a great starting point for exploring the quiet western Lake District. Loweswater is three miles away with a beautiful lakeside woodland and an award winning pub at the head of the lake. Ennerdale is also close by and is one of the most remote and lonely valleys in the Lake District. There is superb fell walking in the valley and a wonderful sense of solitude.

Low Millgillhead

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at low millgillhead in April when the weather was not at its best but the quality of the property convinced us that it is an absolute MUST that we go back in the summer to fully enjoy both the property and the delightful surrounding area.

It is a lovely, atmospheric and cosy property that comfortably handled

the needs of 9 people celebrating my wifes birthday over a long lazy weekend.The immediate area will satisfy the requirements of cyclists,walkers and definitely the fishermen.

The only place to avoid we is the quite unfriendly and grumpy

proprietor and staff at the nearby pub[old coaching house-we think].

We would recommend this property to anyone.

A true lakes retreat with historic feel

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Millgillhead in the summer and we had a really great time. The house is large and spacious with semi galleried landing and

an interesting and satisfying layout. The house was we thought of early georgian origin and has quality furnishings in period and the kitchen is fully stocked for 12 settings with pretty much every extra you need. There is a well kitted out ulitlity room off the kitchen and the dining room is off the kitchen so easy for prep and dinner. All of the bedrooms are a little different with character. The garden was also large and captivating with a lovely shallow stream. The village is rural and there are many walks from the door or nearby and we found This area of the Lakes to be magnificent. The children walked for hours without complaint up many hills! sailing at Lake Derwent Water and Coniston was also interesting as it was windy!. we hope to visit again soon as this was the holiday with a little difference.

Lamplugh is the perfect starting place to explore the Lake District. Loweswater is the nearest lake, just 3 miles away. Here there are lovely lakeside walks through the woods with an award winning pub at the other end. Ennerdale Lake is 4 miles in the other direction and here you will still see more sheep than people! As well as low level walks there is good mountain walking and mountain biking with some of the Lake District’s highest mountains in the Ennerdale valley.

The nearst town, Cockermouth is a 15 minute drive from Lamplugh and has pubs, cafes, restaurants and shops. It also houses Jennings Brewery, the Lake District’s best known brewer of fine ales – well worth a visit!

Within easy reach are several interesting stately homes with fantastic gardens, the steam railway at Eskdale, horse riding over the moors, go-karting at Maryport and Go-Ape at Whinlatter near Keswick.
