This secluded enclosed garden is lovingly maintained and makes a wonderful place to spend time with family or friends on those sunny days in the Lake District.

Description

Millside Cottage is situated in a quiet location, close to the centre of the village and a short distance from the village shop. There are two allocated parking places at the front of the property. The cottage has full gas central heating, double glazing and is lovingly maintained with wonderful views of the fells. It is charming and well equipped offering very comfortable accommodation for any time of year.

The entrance porch opens into a spacious, well decorated, lounge with a beamed ceiling, a living flame gas fire which has a remote control, and a leather suite, along with Smart TV, Bluetooth + CD Hi-Fi.

From the lounge you enter the fully fitted kitchen diner with built in appliances, including oven, 5 ringed ceramic touch control hob, microwave, washer dryer, fridge and freezer, dishwasher and Nespresso Magimix coffee machine with some complimentary pods. There is a dining area with table and four chairs with views out to the secluded garden.

From the kitchen there is a small sun room with comfortable wicker chairs and table, ideal for afternoon tea and reading. This leads to the well kept enclosed garden which is ideal for families and those sunny days in the Lake District. It has a paved area with table and chairs, many different flowering shrubs and views out towards the fells.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one bedroom with bespoke king size bed and one twin with two singles, both with built in wardrobes.

The large bathroom has both a bath and a shower cubicle, and a wash hand basin (the view of Barrow Fell from the bath after a day on the fells is definitely recommended). There is a separate WC next to the bathroom. One bath towel and one hand towel are provided per person.

stay at hillside
Impression on line did not match property broken chair in back porch shower did not work water never got hot living room very old fashioned very dark during the day needs updating lots of dust on light fittings and lamps. otherwise enjoyed our stay l personally prefer more modern properties but thought it would be cosy unfortunately not.
Cosy, Comfy, dog friendly, perfect cottage
Perfectly located in the village, just a few steps from the local shop and less than 5 minute walk to 2 excellent pubs serving excellent meals. The cottage benefits from parking to the front, and a secure small garden to the rear with outstanding views of Latrigg, Skiddaw range, Blencathra and Barrow and has a small table and chairs. Kitchen is very well equipped and spacious and the lounge is quite large but cosy and warm, the gas fire makes for an even cosier feel. Plenty of storage downstairs. Stairs are slightly steep but lead to a long landing and 2 bedrooms, bathroom and seperate toilet, all rooms upstairs have stunning views. The king size bed is so comfortable and the pillows are amazing and help you drift away to sleep. Again, cupboard space is excellent upstairs. Only slight downside is the water pressure in the shower cubicle, not great but manageable, you could also use the shower attachment over the bath if needed. The cottage has a tablet that welcomes you in and holds all of the appliance operating manuals plus other useful information, a really clever touch. Keswick Cottages were brilliant throughout, excellent communication, care and attention given, our first time using this company but will use again. Highly recommend the Royal Oak and Coledale Inn for dining and a walk to force crag mine is ideal for views and a good wide flat route. Did not want to leave this little gem of a cottage and would love to come back.

Thank you so much for your 5-star review! We are so happy you found Millside Cottage to be located in a perfect position in the village of Braithwaite and the car parking space is a great feature of the cottage. The rear garden is a great feature too with the outdoor furniture meaning you can enjoy al fresco fining in the warmer weather. We are so glad you found the kitchen well equipped and that the lounge was spacious and cosy. Millside Cottage benefits from amazing views of the surrounding fells. We're pleased you found the addition of the tablet a clever touch, we think its a great feature to have in our cottages. Thank you so much for your kind comments about our customer service, we always want our guests to have an easy booking experience with us. We would love to welcome you back when you next visit! We hope you had a wonderful time! Best Wishes, Keswick Cottages

Perfect location
We enjoyed 6 nights in Millside Cottage during the recent snow and ice, and found it to be very warm, comfortable and clean. The beds are very comfortable as are the sofas, the view from the picture window in the large bathroom is spectacular, theres tons of hot water and a lovely big bath, plenty of storage space in the kitchen and bedrooms and decent cleaning materials to hand, the garden is well kept and secure for dogs, it’s easy to park directly in front of the house, and it’s right next to Braithwaite shop, 2 decent dog friendly pubs, 2 smart restaurants and 2 cafes (the shop has recently added on a dining area, although it’s not dog friendly). Loads of great walking from the door to suit all abilities. Keswick Cottages as a rental agency are also good communicators and offer a personable service and are very good value compared to the other national rental companies (Sykes, Hoseasons etc). We’d happily return. As an aside, the recycling/bin information for the cottage needs updating (collections aren’t on a Tuesday as stated and there’s no information on what can be recycled in which external bins).

Thank you so much for your 5-star review! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Millside Cottage, and found it clean, very warm, comfortable and spacious. We are so glad you enjoyed the view and found the beds and sofas comfortable, we are so pleased you found the view from the bathroom spectacular. We hope your dogs enjoyed exploring the enclosed garden! Thank you so much for your kind words about our team, as a small local agency we truly appreciate it and want our guests to have a personable experience with us and ask us about anything prior to their stay and during. We will update the information regarding he recycling/bin information for future guests. We hope you had a wonderful time exploring the Lake District. We hope to welcome you back again. Best Wishes, Keswick Cottages

Handily placed for walks ,climbs village shop which stocks almost everything and lovely staff.Cottage had everything we needed very well equipped and clean.Braithwaite is a lovely village but can be busy at certain times of year it’s also very near to Keswick which is good. Keswick cottages friendly and helpful kept us well informed with all the details.
It was great to be back in our favourite cottage in the Lake District after over a year. The owners Ian & Sue have put a lot of work in to making the cottage COVID safe. Unfortunately as part of making it safe some items have had to be removed but that didn't detract from the facilities this cottage offers. Even the weather was good. Already booked up for November.
