Things To Do in Millom

Sitting high in the surrounding countryside, part of a farm complex in 17 acres of land, between the Irish Sea and the Duddon estuary, where the Lake District meets the sea.

Get away from the stress and strain of the big city with a superb holiday break in Cumbria, with one or two well behaved canines for company.

Restaurant and shop 2 miles away, beach 2½ miles, pub 4 miles. Keep your dogs on a leash, as this is sheep farming country, and The Stables is very much part of this tradition.

Head down the lane, which is also a signposted bridleway, or find one of the many public rights of way which criss cross the farmland in the area. The Whicham Valley follows the Whicham Beck westwards towards the Irish Sea, while the Black Beck flows east to the superb Duddon Estuary, with views across the water to Kirkby-in-Furness.

Take a drive or longish doggie walk down into the small Cumbrian town of Millom, and enjoy the walks around Millom Park, then stop by one of the dog friendly pubs, cafes and eateries in the town centre.

Millom has a train station, part of the line which follows the headland all the way up the estuary and across the railway bridge near Broughton-in-Furness.

A drive up the A593 Hollow Way takes you to Torver, Coniston and the legendary Coniston Water, home of several world record attempts. If you’re fit enough, try the hike up the Old Man of Coniston, or just enjoy the views over the lake from the village.

Windermere is a short drive to the east, and the magical Lakeland village of Ravenglass to the west. Here you’ll find historic Muncaster Castle, the River Esk and the chance to take a ride on La’al Ratty, the steam locomotive run by the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway Co. Ltd.

Our Thoughts

The Stables at High Lowscales Farm offers the chance for a family, group of friends or workmates to have a holiday to remember, not forgetting pooch.

Cleverly converted from an original stables building, the slate walls fit perfectly with the landscape, which is some of the most remote and beautiful in England.

Enjoy walks along the hundreds of miles of paths and bridleways in the area, through the fields and along the coastal paths, either west on the Irish Sea coast, or east overlooking the magnificent Duddon Estuary.

Enjoy lovely Millom, very much a hidden gem of this part of the Lakes, and head off into the Lake District National Park itself, just a short drive away.

With its superb views and tranquil air, The Stables offer the chance to really recharge your batteries.
