RUTTER FALLS

Self Catering Holiday Cottages
Eden Valley, Cumbria
 

ABOUT

 

 

Rutter Falls Self Catering Holiday Cottages are in a magnificent location - adjacent to Rutter Force waterfall within the Eden Valley, Cumbria - near the Lake District.

The River Eden has carved a fertile valley through the district, creating an area of lush meadows and rolling fields.  We are inside the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the area is designated as the Westmorland Dales. 

The Mill has historical references dating back to the 16th Century and is set within a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Relax, unwind, and watch red squirrels, deer, dippers, kingfishers, heron, goldcrest and lots more. There are Brown Trout in our beck for any fishermen. The quiet roads are ideal for cycling enthusiasts, and the countryside and fells provide excellent walking opportunities.

In the nearby market towns of Appleby and Kirkby Stephen, you will find historic buildings, a range of delightful small cafes and shops offering crafts, antiques and local specialities. The Northern Lakes are all very accessible as are trips to North Cumbria, the Pennines, Hadrian's Wall and the Scottish Borders.

If you like long or short walks, touring the Eden Valley, getting away from it all or just want to see the beauty of the local habitat, look no further.

The Mill sleeps 2/4 - Ford Cottage sleeps 2/4 - Ford Cottage + Owl Room sleeps 2/6

 

THE MILL

Comfortable converted watermill sleeping one or two couples, overlooking the often spectacular Rutter Force waterfall, in the tranquil Eden Valley, between Lake District and Dales. Perfect for a romantic getaway, or watching abundant birds and wildlife. Ideal for honeymoons, anniversaries or engagements! You won't find accommodation closer to rushing water than this! No children under 12 for safety reasons.  Well-behaved pets welcomed.

 

The space

This centuries-old converted watermill enjoys a unique location right beside a waterfall and beck. Watch the falls from your living room or balcony, and see amazing birds and wild creatures without having to leave the comfort of your cottage. The Mill is fully equipped with everything you'd want for a relaxing break in a magical rural haven.

 

Guest access

Guests can sit on the riverbank, or in the private secret garden behind The Mill. Your own private balcony gives you a birdseye view of the waterfall and wildlife. Rutter Falls is three miles from the lovely market town of Appleby in Westmorland and a half-hour's drive from the Lake District. Fantastic hiking opportunities right on your doorstep.

 

Other things to note

The Mill cannot be booked by families with children under 12 for safety reasons.

Smoking is not allowed inside The Mill. Weekly stays begin on a Friday. Shorter stays must begin on Fridays, Mondays or Tuesdays. The road to our property crosses Hoff Beck at a ford.  After heavy rain, the ford can become impassable.  Alternative access is via a narrow farm track.  There is an additional charge for each pet (£20) to contribute to cleaning costs.
