Offering easy access to the lakes, fells and the rugged coastline of the South Lakes Peninsular. Set in the small village of Lindale, The Old Pottery is a traditional bank-built stone building, which originally formed part of a 17th.C water mill. Most of the mill is long gone, however the beck with its narrow dam that powered the mill wheel is just a stone's throw from the property. Just 2 minutes' walk away is The Royal Oak serving local produce and where booking is usually advisable.

The Old Pottery 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. The Old Pottery 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.
Not far 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.

Excellent apartment in a stunning part of the Lake District. In easy reach of Grange over Sands with a good selection of small shops.

By Susan Rawlingson on 26-Sep-2023

The property was very well equipped and tastefully decorated to a high standard. Lots of information provided by the owner's on local walks and places of interest to visit. Cartmel, home of the Sticky Toffee Pudding, Grasmer , with its connections to William Wordsworth were well worth visiting. Lovely art galleries and plenty of coffee and cakes shops. Plenty of National Trust Places to visit and to walk off the cake! Grange-over-Sands has plenty of small independent shops and the walk along the prom is interesting. Looking forward to seeing the Lido on our next visit. It's in the process of being renovated at the moment but worth looking at then a stop at the ice-cream shop. Looking forward to a return visit in 2024.

Lovely lodgings

By Tim on 29-May-2023

This was a lovely spot for jumping off to see the Lake District. The furnishings are top notch with comfortable beds, living room seating and outside chairs and table. The kitchen has every imaginable appliance and saucepan needed for a lengthy stay. There was no one in the lodgings above us so it was very quiet. Access to the southern part of the Lake District is easy and quickly done. The town is fairly quiet and traffic is minimal though noise from the quarry across the road can be a bit disconcerting if you want to take a nap in the middle of the day. Overall a lovely place to stay.

Owner response on 11-Jul-2023

Thank you Tim, we re so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. If there was any noise during the day it was not from a quarry but from builders, building two new houses across the hillside.

Well located and comfortable

By Anne & David on 20-May-2022

We would recommend this property to anyone who is looking to enjoy the benefits of both the southern end of the Lake District and coastal area around Grange over Sands. A good deal of attention has gone into providing a clean, comfortable and inviting place to stay.
