Millbeck Towers, Keswick

Cumbria. Sleeps up to 12

Sitting in an elevated position above the Northern Lakes, you’ll feel like King of the land in this castle.  It’s actually a former 18th-century carding mill, but nonetheless impressive. Step inside the turret-adorned property to an atmospheric space with high ceilings and historic detailing in all its nooks and crannies. An intricate stained glass window, open fireplaces and chequered tiled floors are just some of the notable features of this large six-bedroom mansion.

It’s ideal for those special get-togethers with its large rambling garden with a pretty pond, perfect for summer soirees. If you’re an outdoorsy bunch, you’ll have direct access to Skiddaw Range with its easily navigational paths and fine views across the Vale of Keswick.  

Also close by is the bustling small town of Keswick, just a 10-minute drive from here. Go a little further south to Derwent Water, also known as ‘Queen of the Lakes’. It’s nestled in the idyllic Borrowdale Valley. You can explore the islands on your own vessel or rent boats from hire centres around the lake.
