Once a thriving bobbin mill, this gorgeous character property is part
of the Ings Mill Park development - a select set of cottages set in
lush green countryside, alongside the River Gowan and circumscribed by
5 acres of wooded valley between Staveley and Windermere.
Walks abound in the Kentmere Valley, from quiet country lanes to
surrounding fells, and only a 2 minute walk will take you to the
Watermill Inn - where real ale is brewed on-site and even dogs are
given a warm welcome. Back home at Gowan Cottage, you'll find a
relaxed, open plan living space with oak beams, cottage doors and
traditional slate floor. Cosy in after a day on the fells, or dine
al-fresco on the delightful decked patio.

Ings is a small hamlet on the famously scenic A591, your main route
from the M6 into the heart of the Lakes. Ings lies between Staveley and
Windermere, at the gateway to the Kentmere Valley. Set back from the
road, Ings Mill Park is only a stroll away from the village's famous
Watermill Inn and brewery.
You can also take a short walk to Staveley, where you'll find a
friendly community of quirky local businesses, a renowned walkers cafe,
'Wilf's', a gorgeous historic church and an excellent pub meal at the
Eagle & Child. Walk or cycle through Staveley village into the Kentmere
Valley, and you'll find a wealth of scenic routes.
Only a few miles north on the A591 you'll find shops, restaurants and
Booths supermarket in Windermere village, the shores of the lake only a
few miles further at Bowness Bay.
