Family weekend away
Gorgeous accommodation, everything you need, we have loved our time here, so have our young children and dog. Cottage itself is located opposite lovely stream, local shop and you can see the local Engine Inn from front room window family and dog friendly! Comfy beds, 2nd bedroom is a good sized twin which is perfect for us with 2small kids, living space is great size and big enough for large dog bed without taking over our space. Fully equipped kitchen, bathroom looks like it's recently been refurbished, along with separate toilet. Really have no faults at all and couldn't be happier with the cottage. Owners live upstairs and were kind enough to let us know we didn't need to rush out as cleaners are coming later in the day, really appreciated that. Cark itself is beautiful, very small little village, pretty much one road running through it and could easily be missed, but once you get off the road there are beautiful walks, could go on for miles. Plenty of info in cottage for walks and places of interest. Already recommended to family and friends and would love to come back in the summer.

Best holiday cottage ever!
Just returned from a week at this lovely cottage, it is in a beautiful situation in the quiet little village of Cark with the river Eea running just in front of the house. Very comfy and modern interior. Very thoughtfully furnished and all that one needs to make it home from home. The wine and crisps on arrival were a special treat. The food at both the Engine Inn and the Rose and Crown was good and there are plenty of places to go nearby and lots of great walks. After over thirty years of staying in holiday cottages have to say this comes top of my list. Thank you for a great holiday.

We have just returned from this stylish well laid out apartment. It was so clean and comfortable, especially the beds, which we very much appreciated after an active day exploring the lakes. It had everything you needed and the bonus of a utility room with a washer, separate dryer and a freezer so we could stock up on all the local goodies in the area to take home. A real home from home.

The Old Mill is a fantastic holiday cottage. Every detail has been thought of, with the guest in mind. Idyllic setting. An excellent base to explore South and North Lakes. Will highly recommend.

We stayed over the Christmas period and the cottage had a lovely Christmas tree and table decoration, very welcoming!
