Millers Loft is situated in the pretty village of Lindale that lies between the sands of Morecambe Bay / Grange Over Sands and the stunning scenery of the Lake District.
Ideally located on the South Peninsular to explore the wonders of the English Lake District, we have walkers, there is a great choice of country walks in the Lyth Valley, canoeists, water skiers and sailors using the lakes, bird watchers visiting Foulshaw Moss Nature Reserve where the Ospreys have a nesting site, fishermen, golfers, horse race goers, cyclists, foodies and historians. Miller's Loft is only 8 miles from Newby Bridge, at the foot of Lake Windermere where you will find the Lakeland Motor Museum, Ambio cafe ( from where you can watch the water rapids), Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam engine ride to Lakeside Aquarium and then hop on a ferry to Bowness, Ambleside or Brockhole. From Newby Bridge you can easily get either side of Lake Windermere to either, Bowness, Ambleside, Glenridding, Coniston, Hawkshead, Far Sawrey (home of Beatrice Potter) and Keswick. It is also close to the popular “foodie” village of Cartmel and of course Cartmel's famous racecourse where meetings are regularly held throughout the year.
The Lyth Valley lies behind Cartmel Fell to the east of Lake Windermere. The valley is known for its serene agricultural landscapes, its vibrant damson blossom in the spring ( at harvest time look out for locally made damson jam and damson gin from the valley in the local artisan food and farm shops) and its widely-acclaimed Lake District gastropubs including The Punchbowl at Crosthwaite, The Mason's Arms at Strawberry Bank and the Hare and Hounds at Bowland Bridge.
Twenty minutes away is the market town of Ulverston, the birthplace of Stan Laurel. You can see the house he was born in and visit the Laurel and Hardy museum. There is a wonderful bronze statue of Stan and Ollie outside the Coronation Hall.
From Ulverston you can take the beautiful coast road to Barrow and at Rampside you access Roa Island and then take a small boat crossing to Piel Island with it's pub and Castle.
