“An excellent B+B with a warm welcome”
Reviewed 31 July 2012

We had a great weekend at Sockbridge Mill. The mill has bags of character, is set in a secluded position in lovely countryside, and yet is only a few miles from the mainline station at Penrith and the M6. We got a very warm welcome and were well looked after by Debby and Gary. The room was quiet, very comfortable and had a terrific private bathroom with an excellent shower. There was a choice of continental or full breakfast - we went for the full english, which was perfectly cooked and well presented. There is also a lovely lounge for guests with a woodburning stove, and there are very good bars nearby which serve good food, particularly the Yanwath Gate Inn. We wouldn't hesitate to book again - an excellent B+B!

We had a wonderful stay at Sockbridge Mill. Debby and Gary were really welcoming and we were made to feel very much at home. The mill is very cosy and is set in a relaxing location surrounded by countryside. We loved the artistic style of the house. The rooms are very comfortable and have all you would need including yogi-tea and lots of hand-crafted finishing touches. The bathroom was top-notch and Debby made a delicious breakfast with lots of healthy options. This really is a unique bed and breakfast and we have no criticisms at all. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone including individuals, couples and families on holiday in the Lakes and it would make a handy stop-off as part of a long journey as is not far from Penrith.

We could only stay one night but we were looked after so well. A wonderful setting in an amazing old water mill that has been sympathetically restored and turned into a wonderful home by Debbie and Gary. Set near to the village of Sockbridge and down a small country lane, we even found the mill in the dark with the good directions, Immediately welcomed, made to feel at home and shown to our room The Granary. Our room was very comfortable, and had all that you might need, with the en suite having the largest shower head i think i have ever seen! Breakfast was excellent with homemade preserves and bread..yum! Everything you could ask of, and more, from a top notch b&b. Look forward to a return visit.

Sockbridge Mill made an idyllic and peaceful weekend getaway. I have never slept so well in a B&B! Great value for money if you’re looking for a high-end bed and breakfast.

We stayed at Sockbridge Mill for a climbing weekend in the Lakes. This B&B is stunning! It is located in a Valley so feels quite secluded yet is very easy to get to from the M6. It is close to Lake Ullswater which was beautiful in the frosty weather and we found lots of ameniable bouldering opportunities. We had a relaxing stay and Debby and Gary made us feel very welcome. The rooms are very comfortable and are quite unique with traditional as well as artistic features. Breakfast was healthy but hearty and was quite delicious. We especially enjoyed the ridge walk, which sets off from the B&B and was a great start to each day.
Thank you for a wonderful stay!
