The Area

The Grizedale Valley whilst idyllic and picturesque offers a multitude of adrenalin pumping activities hidden amongst the trees. The Grizedale Visitors Centre, just over a mile from the property offers a range of seasonal activities including stargazing walks, sculptural trails, pony trekking, and much more. Mountain bike fans will delight in the never-ending tracks and trails of Grizedale Forest, suitable for all levels of skill. You’ll also find a Go Ape and zip line course winding their way through the dense green canopy.

Whilst Satterthwaite is a small village you’ll find a cosy country pub, The Eagles Head. Popular with locals and visitors alike, enjoy a quiet pint of local real ale outside, or sit and take in a hearty meal. The pub is less than a mile from 1 Force Mill Barn along a quiet country road. A torch is advisable if walking the route at night.

Further afield the villages of Hawkshead, Ambleside, and Coniston are all accessible by car. Spend the day wandering around the eclectic collection of independent shops and cafes or enjoy lake life on the shores of Coniston Water.

If you’re looking to gain some altitude and admire the views from the top during your time here, the Coniston Fell Range is a short drive away and includes seven magnificent Wainwright summits (Coniston Old Man, Dow Crag, Swirl How, Brim Fell, Wetherlam, Great Carrs & Great Friar).

In essence, whether you are looking to explore or simply switch off for a few days, 1 Force Mill offers the very best of both worlds.

"This place is stunning, the pictures look great... but it's better in person. The beds are amazing. The kitchen is so well fitted out, you can cook properly here without worrying about pans/trays etc. The whole place is awesome. The location is great too!"

"Perfect stay at this luxury barn! Just returned from a week staying here and it was absolutely perfect and just as described. The bed is massive and comfy as are the sofas, the shower is really powerful, and loved the proper coffee machine. Plenty of space to while away a cosy happy few hours each day. The location was great for us as were we looking to walk and relax but if you’re wanting more amenities might not be the best, about 30 mins drive to a lot of local places, Ambleside, Bowness, Coniston, etc, this worked for us and we enjoyed the tranquility of the spot and also did a couple of walks straight out from the house. We’ll definitely be back!"

What an amazing trip! We came here for my 30th birthday celebrations and had the most fantastic time! The house feels like a second home, it's immaculate, cosy and really modern. Love the standalone bath tub! Everything we needed was provided and we've been extremely comfortable here. We did some fab walks in the Langdale valleys and around Coniston lake. Everything here has exceeded our expectations, what a fabulous holiday it's been!

"This place is a real treat. Such a beautiful place to stay. Spacious with Beautiful finish and furnishings make for a luxurious retreat in a great location to explore the Lakes. Highly recommend. We visited for our honeymoon so there were only 2 of us which made it pricier but totally worth it. Lots of space to visit as a 4 with bedrooms on separate floors for privacy."

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful cottage, it really is stunning and we couldn't have asked for any more. The quality of workmanship, your attention to detail, colour choices and layout make for the perfect balance of what we were looking for in a lakes escape retreat. Touches of luxury while still remaining practical but homely. We were fortunate to be blessed with amazing weather for the full week so didn't spend much time indoors and we found the cottage perfectly positioned for everything we wanted to do, excellent mountain biking trails just up the road, 'Go Ape', paddle boarding on Coniston (more chilled than Windermere), random adventures leading to breathtaking views and white water rafting. A truly amazing week we'll never forget.

For this newly renovated barn, we couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. We stayed here for 4 nights as our little country break and we enjoyed every single minute of it! The house is situated in a lovely little village which is tranquil and idyllic. It’s perfect for a little getaway from the busy city life! It is exactly how it looks online and to be honest it was beyond our expectations!! From the appliances, the location, the lovely neighbours, and owners. Just perfection! We fell in love with this cute little place and without a doubt will be returning and recommending it to as many people as we can! Thank you so much for letting us stay here and what an amazing renovation you have created, you should be very proud! Ps. For coffee lovers, there’s a wonderful Smeg Coffee machine, which was one of my favourite little add ons to this beautiful place, so be sure to bring some ground coffee along with you to enjoy and be your own barista!

This is a beautifully and thoughtfully renovated property, with plenty of room for two couples/a family getaway in the lakes. The property is a little off the beaten track and it’s worth investigating taxis before you arrive (not much phone signal - which could be an advantage!). Everything during our stay was clean and comfortable and there was a lovely welcome pack with treats and information about the area. We’d recommend the Eagles Head pub up the road in Satterthwaite and the breakfast at the Old Boathouse Cafe on Esthwaite.
