“Excellent value for money”

We chose this property as it gave us easy access to the far western Wainwright fells and peaks. It is conveniently placed approximately 10 minutes drive away from Ennerdale Water and half an hour from Crummock Water and Buttermere, and I would highly recommend it to any Wainwright Peak baggers or walkers. Also, it is only 5 minutes away from the beach at St.Bees and approx. half an hour away from the larger towns of Workington and Whitehaven. As for the cottage, it is beautifully restored to a very high standard and provided plenty of space for 4 adults. It is immaculately clean and has a modern fitted kitchen and beautiful shower room. It provides a great Wi-Fi connection and has a large flat screen TV in the lounge.
What surprised us the most was the amazingly large, well stocked garden which was a very welcome sun trap to relax in after a hard day walking on the fells! I would like to thank Sarah and Sean for the bottle of wine and goodies left in the cottage for our arrival- most welcome! They were the perfect hosts as we knew that they were next door if we needed them but they were never intrusive- only enquiring as to our comfort and enjoyment of the cottage if we saw them. Many thanks and I would highly recommend the cottage to anyone- we would love to go back again.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed June 13, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Our stay at this beautiful cottage was fantastic, Sean & Sarah were the perfect hosts. On arrival there was a welcome basket of goodies which was very useful, they gave us lots of tips on where to visit, including a hair raising trip Sean recommended over the Rhinos the views were amazing!!! The cottage had everything you could need and very well equipped. Would love to go back, the only down side to our holiday was one of our dogs broke her foot so water was out of bounds no lakes for us!!! Thanks Sarah & Sean for a great stay

“Idyllic Cottage nestled by the river”
Reviewed April 14, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The cottage was exactly as described on the website. Ideally situated close to Egremont and the main coastal road but tucked into a peaceful valley next to the River Ehen. Footpaths beside the river lead you to the town in one direction or a small lake in the other.

The cottage was well equipped for a small family and dog with two good sized bedrooms and a cosy lounge. The kitchen although small, offered enough room to cook and eat, and the bathroom which was off the kitchen was suitably equipped. The storage heaters and electric fire created sufficient heat in the cold evenings.

The welcome pack was very much appreciated and the information folder and local books very useful.

We had a lovely week at Briscoe Mill cottage. The cottage is of a good standard and we enjoyed the welcome pack provisions left for us on our arrival.
Wifi made sure sure our teenage son was happy ! and we found the cottage very peaceful and comfortable for our stay.
The owners have very tastefully ensured that this cottage an ideal holiday cottage destination by retaining the feel of a quaint old cottage in the bedrooms and living room whilst ensuring the bathroom and kitchen are both up to date and with a modern feel -an ideal combination
We enjoyed the surrounding area very much. This area is a quieter side of The Lake District away from the bustle of Windermere, Coniston and Keswick and we enjoyed amazing walks along the coast path from Whitehaven to St Bees, a high ridge walk above Buttermere (High Stile etc) and walking around Ennerdale - a beautiful lake and almost deserted even in the middle of August.
Lots of places to eat nearby if you don't want to cook. We enjoyed a lovely meal at The Manor in St Bees and The Briery in Workington (a little way up the road). We also used the local Star Takeaway in Egremont (only 1 mile away and do delivery!) which all are to be recommended.
A fantastic little cottage and as our daughter lives locally we shall almost certainly be returning

Stayed for a week with husband, teenager and two dogs. Greeted with a lovely hamper including a treat for the dogs ! Beautiful gardens with a 'Fairy Glen' by the stream which my daughter loved not least as the chickens kept her company! Owner is close by but not intrusive and the cottage is exceptionally clean and modern. I would highly recommend this to everyone. We had a great time, Thanks Sarah and Sean and children. :-)

“Beautifully renovated cottage situated perfectly for easy access to lakes and coast.”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

The cottage has been renovated beautifully so as to give a contemporary appearance whilst utilising many original features. It was immaculately clean throughout, with a well kept garden and outside seating, and had everything needed for your holiday. The welcome pack of bread, milk, biscuits, wine and gorgeous fresh eggs laid by the resident hens was a lovely touch. The cottage was situated in a lovely quiet spot within easy access to the amenities in Egremont and also the lakes and the coast. Would definitely stop here again.

“A wonderful cottage in the lovely Lake District”

person found this review helpful

We had a perfect stay in this lovely cottage with its peaceful garden. It is a very nice cottage and you can find so many visitor attractions quite in the near. We liked most hiking on a few pathways on the top auf some mountains or around some quiet and natural lakes in the lake district. It was perfect for the children, too, and they loved their stay in Egremont.

What a wonderful family you have, our children thoroughly enjoyed playing with them and sharing in the memories. You also inspired Daniel to climb Scafell and he loved it. Hope you are enjoying the rest of the summer. All the very best from Cumbria!
