Full Description

Welcome to Fawcett Mill
Located in Cumbria, midway between the Lake District & Yorkshire Dales National Parks, Fawcett Mill is located only 2 miles from the M6 motorway, hidden in its own tranquil valley. The front of the property drops down to a stream from an adjacent waterfall, which runs through its own 7 acres of meadowland.
Built in 1794 as the Mill Owners house, it is a stone built cottage, furnished in comfortable country style, with oak beams, open fire, log burner, four poster beds, sauna, & Victorian range. It is fully centrally heated with solid floors & rugs on the ground floor & fully fitted carpets on the other 2 floors. It has two kitchens, two lounges & 4 bath or shower rooms. The whole party can dine together in the same dining area.
Outside there are seating areas beside the stone built BBQ, & extensive terraces & patios leading down to the stream.
