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.”

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.

We're glad you and the dogs had a fab time and hope you were able to get onto the beach with them. Best wishes SSD&L

“A wonderful cottage in the lovely Lake District”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

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!

“Gorgeous setting great hosts”

My daughter and I stayed here about two weeks ago. First impressions were gorgeous cottage set in a pretty garden on the edge of the River Ehan.
We were greeted by Sarah and Sean as old friends.
The cottage was beautifully provisioned with farm eggs (Sarah is happy to buy in anything you may need ahead to save you shopping if you are arriving from overseas or cannot get to take provisions with you). We were delighted to find our wonderfully stocked fridge and cupboards with all we had requested and more.
The setting idyllic, our hosts we now feel are in fact friends, a feeling of coming home. That is rare. Would definitely go back. Thanks Sarah and Sean

Thank you for your lovely comments. We're so glad you were able to experience some of the area where your mum grew up. And thank you so very much for the bottle of No1, extremely kind of you. Good luck to you and your family with the vineyard and we will certainly call in when we head down under. Warmest wishes SSD&L

We were visiting friends in Whitehaven so using cottage as a base, however it is so lovely we didn't want to go out! The cottage is beautifully decorated, warm and we loved the garden, especially the bench near the stream. Lovely touches like wine, bread, eggs were here when we arrived and Easter eggs for the kids. Owners are very helpful and friendly. Cottage is well equipped with lots of character, beds were very comfy and the bathroom is beautiful. Thoroughly recommend Briscoe Mill to anyone wishing to visit and we hope to return soon. Many thanks Sean and Sarah
