The Old Corn Mill is a fantastic retreat away from all the hustle and bustle of your everyday work life. You will find it in a perfect location to help you to learn, develop, re-energise and re-focus.

This preserved 18th century corn mill sits within its own riverside grounds in the secluded Lyth Valley and provides an intimate location for sole-occupancy groups.

The ideal base for a weekend of activities in the Lakes, with easy access to great walking, cycling, sailing, golfing and more. Or if you are looking for a more relaxing time the local area is host to an abundance of spas, shops, unique views and pubs, bars and restaurants.

The Mill has 12 rooms: 6 double rooms and 6 small double (queen size) beds. 8 rooms en suite, with 2 sets of 2 rooms sharing a connecting bathroom.

The old corn mill is an excellent accommodation choice if you are looking for a quiet, private getaway with a group of friends.

The property is massive with large double bedroom most of them being ensuite and a beautiful garden out front. There is also a large dinning space, living room and industrial kitchen with all the gadgets you will need. It felt more like we had rented our own private hotel for the weekend!

The mill building itself still contains and showcases a lot of the old features of the cornmill which adds to the character and is situated in a quiet area where the only noises you will hear are the water running form the nearby stream, birds chirping and the sheep in the field nearby. We can’t wait to go back and book again!

Thanks again Stephen. We had an amazing time!
