Dating back to 1746, Tongue Cottage is a delightful one bedroomed property in Watermillock. An area of outstanding natural beauty within the Lake District National Park we are only a mile from Ullswater. It provides a unique location for walking, honeymoons, or romantic getaways. Tongue Cottage is perfect for that special anniversary, birthday or simply for those just wanting to relax.

Located next to the owners’ home, but still maintaining solitude and privacy, Tongue Cottage is surrounded by open fields and is a haven for wildlife. Red squirrels regularly visit the gardens, as well as a huge variety of birds – including greater spotted woodpeckers, tawny and barn owls, tree creepers and nuthatches. The natural pond within the grounds regularly attracts herons and greylag geese.

There are walks directly from the doorstep, including Aira Force and Gowbarrow (Airy Crag). Little Mell Fell, one of ‘the Wainwrights’, is directly behind the cottage. Ideal for an evening walk to watch the sun set.
