Tucked away in the peaceful softer south Lakeland countryside between the unspoilt Kentmere and Longsleddle valleys, Patton Mill dates back to the early 13th century and is a quite unique one off lifestyle property. During its history it has seen many uses from the original corn mill.

The current accommodation provides 3 lovely bedrooms, 2 with built in wardrobes, a stylish bathroom, superb open plan living area with exposed beams, vaulted ceiling, feature stone fireplace with wood burning stove and includes French patio doors out onto a balcony with views over the gardens and river towards the valley beyond. The living space has an attractive handmade bespoke oak and wrought iron balustrading separating a lower dining area, off of which can be found a country style breakfast kitchen complete with Belfast sink and again enjoys those views over the river.

The lower ground floor currently provides a large open plan garage and workshop/store area linking through to a further garden store with separate external access but could, subject to obtaining the necessary approvals, be converted to provide additional living accommodation if required. Existing planning permission which expired recently for additional living space and large glass conservatory overlooking the river.


The property is approached via a gravel driveway which opens out to provide ample parking area and access to the garage. To the rear there is a formally landscaped Mediterranean style patio garden which uses the original mill race as a feature. The gardens extend along the river either side of the mill race and offer a series of lawns with decorative borders, specimen trees and bushes. Trout and salmon parr are known to ‘rest’ in the original wheel well. Of interest to anglers will be the 1.5 miles of double bank salmon and sea trout fishing on the gin clear River Mint included with the property stretching up and down stream from Patton Bridge.

There is also an opportunity to purchase a further ¼ acre paddock by separate agreement.
