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.

    A really comfortable cosy cottage to stay in set amongst fantastic surroundings. Third time we have stayed there and planning to go back

    Wow - what a place for a holiday. One of the most amazing properties we have stayed at. A dream location; you go through a white painted gate and along a track through two fields filled with sheep to get to the lovely 16th Century cottage. The cottage is beside a raging river (or it was when we were there) which is a wonderful sight every day and the noise at night didn't impact and in fact along with the very comfortable beds probably ensured a better nights sleep. Yes our daughters found a few more spiders in the house than they are use to but they soon got use to them after the first couple of days and on the plus side we had a family of 7 ducks and a heron visit every day and were lucky enough to glimpse a mink on a few occasions!

    Lovely cottage, amazing views of the river. Fantastic pub in walking distance (pie is the best dish!) Great for exploring the lakes - only 15 min drive to Ulswater.
