Sockbridge Mill is a beautifully converted watermill with bags of charm and very welcoming owners - it felt like we were part of the family. The bed was comfortable, the towels fluffy and we wanted to take the shower home with us. Breakfast was available at a time to suit, with a lovely menu including fresh berries as well as... More

Tucked away little guest house with a big welcome. A place quieter than tranquility itself. We were welcomed as family rather than guests. Nothing is much trouble for Gary and Debbie. An ideal hideaway for a weekend visit or longer for those keen walkers. The rooms are spacious with a luxurious bed. Tea and coffee, hairdryer, TV amongst other nice... More

We recently stayed for 2 nights at the Mill although it is off the beaten track the views & the lovely ensuite room more than made up for it. There was a nice homely feel about the place & the hosts were very welcoming. Breakfast was really good with cereal & fresh fruit and a good choice of cooked breakfast.... More

Whilst arriving unexpectedly at the mill I was welcomed with open arms and made to feel at home, every step of the way. Each morning we were treated to a lovely English breakfast (or continental if that was our preference). The rooms were well stocked and of high quality - I slept like a lamb the entire time, and would... More

Tranquil country location, immaculately and stylishly furnished in keeping with the building's character. Very comfortable room and large guest lounge. Amazingly helpful hosts and great breakfasts. More like a boutique hotel with a personal touch than a traditional B&B.

This was a lovely place to stay clean and cosy and the hosts were very nice and accommodating. The breakfast is fantastic with fresh fruit and full breakfast lots of choice! An improvement would be they do offer drinks in the room but some breakfast tea as well as the speciality teas would have been nice. Also you have breakfast... More

Stayed at Sockbridge Mill for 2 nights as it provided an excellent base for trips in and around the Lake District. Hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Room well appointed and comfortable. Large guest lounge available. Good, tasty breakfast that set us up for the day.

Just enjoyed a three night stay at this wonderful location - fun to find (down a half mile drive) but very much worth the adventure.

Stayed here for 2 nights during a bank holiday weekend at the end of summer.
