    Property description
    Condo/Apartment – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    This 200 year-old traditional stone watermill has been cleverly converted into three individual and attractive cottage-style apartments. In an idyllic riverside setting beside tumbling Torver Beck, the apartments are full of character and retain many original features such as exposed stone walls and beams, whilst ensuring comfort and warmth after the day's activities.
    A grassy lane alongside the beck leads to a large wooded field - a great place for children's games and a haven for dogs - and then on to the secluded waterfront.
    Formed from the original wheelhouse, Dipper cottage has a wonderful outlook straight onto the rocky waterfalls of the beck. The front door enters surprisingly at first floor level into a beamed entrance hall off which lie the 2 bedrooms and bathroom. The mas...

Dipper Cottage is a lovely little get-away, just outside Torver, south of Conniston. the cottage is an old converted mill, perched above Torver Beck which provides a constant soundtrack to your stay. The cottage is one of three in the mill with a bigger house further down the track. It is just a short walk from Conniston Water where you look out over Wildcat (Peel) Island of "Swallows and Amazons" fame - as well as close to the Sunny Bank ferry jetty (although not running during our stay due to storm damage). We found the cottage clean, warm and comfortable. My only criticisms - and they are small ones - would be the main double bed was slightly on the lumpy side; there is only one chopping board for food prep (that we could find anyway); and as with almost every rental cottage I have ever stayed in, the knives were all really blunt! But apart from that the kitchen is well kitted out - we even managed a roast dinner, which you can't always do in a rental cottage. But a... more
