Force Mill enjoys one of the most picturesque locations in the Eden Valley, which is on the eastern side of Cumbria, on the fringe of the Lake District

Force Mill enjoys one of the most picturesque locations in the Eden Valley, which is on the eastern side of Cumbria, on the fringe of the Lake District. The whitewashed, sandstone cottage is positioned right on the beautiful Eden riverbank and overlooks a tumbling weir; this is a truly idyllic location. Force Mill is a delightful, detached, Grade II listed, stone farmhouse which has been completely transformed into an immaculate holiday home. Retaining its original cottage character, its charm is enhanced by beautiful furnishings and modern fittings, including super-fast broadband with a wireless download speed of approximately 30Mb/s.

Eden is a haven for peace, tranquillity and a vast variety of wildlife, perfect for ornithologists and country lovers. It is an outstanding area for walking, whether for a hike on the high open fells or a gentle riverside stroll. Cyclists will love the quiet country lanes and the C2C cycle route. Outdoor activities don’t stop here - why not try canoeing on Ullswater (10 miles), a spot of fishing on the doorstep for trout, salmon and grayling (by prior arrangement with the owners), pony trekking or golf in Penrith (6 miles). There are attractions for the whole family including a cruise on Ullswater, or a ride on a restored railway high in the North Pennines! Surrounded by dramatic landscapes including Ullswater and the north eastern fells, it is also close to both the borders of Scotland and the Yorkshire Dales. This secluded and unspoilt destination will inspire, rejuvenate and refresh visitors at any time of the year. A lively calendar of events adds to a holiday here with festivals of all kinds, country and craft fairs, farmers’ markets, and traditional agricultural shows to name just a few. Shops 3 miles, pub 1 mile.

    eynesbury/retired couple The location is truly outstanding and the perfect get away from it all holiday retreat, everything we had hoped for and more. Given the location we did not expect amenities to be close by, so low score should be ignored. The drive through a gate and two fields to get to the cottage dodging obstinate sheep was not expected and we’ve had other, lower, cars in the past which would not have made it without damage underneath. The description in the brochure actually understated the cottages attraction but it would have been helpful to know about the inside steps upstairs and downstairs which are irregular and tricky to negotiate. We also agree with others comments that it would be better if the upstairs bathroom had a full shower. The one major negative is the overall lack of comfort, the settee’s but especially the beds. These are without doubt the hardest and most uncomfortable beds we have ever slept on after one night we both had serious pains in backs, hips and knees after a sleepless night. It was only a trip to Dunelm to purchase a couple memory foam toppers which saved the holiday and prevented an early trip home. Having said all that we would come back again, armed with fly fishing rods, a more effective method of killing flies and of course and the toppers!

    Fabulous location! Away from it all, through 2 fields of sheep and lambs. Watched the heron catch fish. Couldn't be a more peaceful location! House beautiful. Will definitely return.

    Really stunning location and a lovely cottage. All the kitchen equipment we needed and having a dishwasher and washing machine was great. The only thing I'd say is it would have been nice to have the double bed in the biggest room. Not sure why it was in the smallest room.
