About the hotel

Sockbridge Mill Bed and Breakfast provides stylish accommodation in two double rooms in a converted 18th Century watermill surrounded by a large garden. The rooms are tastefully furnished with original beams, oak doors, artworks and textiles. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the bedrooms, and Wi-Fi throughout.

Breakfasts are served in the large historic room, where the mill wheels used to grind wheat from the Eden Valley. TV is available in the adjacent guest sitting room. We bake every day, and serve home-made preserves, and locally sourced produce as far as possible. Pets are welcome by arrangement only, with a surcharge of £5 per night. If booking 'The Hayloft', please note that your dog will have to sleep in our dedicated pet accommodation downstairs. This unique location, on the banks of the River Eamont attracts a wide variety of wildlife. You may see herons, kingfishers, woodpeckers, numerous moths, butterflies, frogs and other animals. You can go on pleasant walks along the river, and in the nearby woods, or to our local award winning pub, The Queen's Head, Tirril, Rheged or the Alpaca Centre for a coffee and a bit of shopping. Your hosts are both practising artists and will be happy to show you around their studios in the garden. We are located just outside the Lake District National Park, 3 miles from Lake Ullswater and 4 miles from Penrith and Jct 40 on the M6. In Penrith you will find a range of facilities including a leisure centre with a climbing wall and swimming pool etc. We are 4 miles from Pooley Bridge on Lake Ullswater where you can take a trip on the steamer, and enjoy a range of outdoor activities: sailing, climbing, fellwalking, canoeing. Within easy reach are a number of historic houses and gardens, such as Dalemain, Hutton–in–the-Forest, and the newly opened restoration project of Lowther Castle and gardens. We are happy to suggest tours and itineraries.

Relaxing Lake District retreat

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

Hosts were fantastic in terms of accommodating our late arrival time due to transit getting there and for suggesting activities to do and providing directions whilst in the area.

The property is nestled far back a country lane and is located near a public trail that you can use to explore for some outdoor fun. Excellent no-nonsense experience and a perfect way to disconnect from the connectedness that take over modern life.

Very disappointing

We paid £85 per night for a small, cramped room with nowhere to put things down.

The room was small, dark and full of rugs, pictures, and bits and pieces. There was no wardrobe - just an alcove with a dark curtain over it. The bathroom had no bath - just a shower. It was described as a superior room but there was nothing superior about it. My advice is don't go there at that price.
