The Water Mill location is quiet and peaceful, surrounded by meadows and has a ruined castle as it next door neighbor to the North. It’s a haven for wildlife and popular with bird watchers.
Being a former farrowing house for the miller’s pigs, Lile Cottage now offers cosy holiday accommodation for couples. It has a bedroom, bathroom (with over bath shower), lounge with dining area and well equipped kitchen. It has gas central heating with supplementary electric fire, dishwasher, Freesat Plus TV, DVD, Wi-Fi. All heating, bedlinen and towels are included in the rental. There are full laundry facilities on site, off road parking and bicycle storage.
There are lots of local walks and the shores of Morecambe Bay are less than a mile away. Guests are welcome to take a tour of the water mill and there is the added attraction of a tea shop on site.

“peaceful away from it all”
Fabulous location and such friendly helpful hosts just next door.
Lucky enough to have glorious weather - returned one day to a newly set up BBQ.
Wee problem with hot water - hosts fixed promptly.
