Crosthwaite Mill

Crosthwaite Mill is a fantastic retreat away from all the hustle and bustle of your everyday work life. You will find it in a perfect location to help you to learn, develop, re-energise and re-focus.

This preserved 18th century corn mill sits within its own riverside grounds in the secluded Lyth Valley and provides an intimate location for sole-occupancy groups. The Old Corn Mill gains its name from the amazing feature it still retains. Among the many original features it includes the huge waterwheel and grindstones giving this site a truly unique feel.



The Old Corn Mill


From the South

Leave the M6 at Exit 36.  Take the left-hand lane off the slip road signposted “South Lakes, Kendal, Barrow A591” *and after 3 miles take the slip road signposted “Barrow, Lakeside and Haverthwaite railway A590”. Turn left at the roundabout. Continue along the A590 and after about 3 miles take the right turn (across the dual carriageway – take care) signposted “Bowness on Windermere A5074” (There is a garage on the right-hand side of this junction).

Follow the A5074 for approximately 4 miles, passing the Lyth Valley Hotel on your right.  Take the first right after the Lyth Valley Hotel,  signposted “Crosthwaite”, continue up the lane and take the first left (this is nearly at the end of the road!). Continue down the lane, past the farm on the left hand side, until you come to the Crosthwaite Mill on your left.  The carpark is after the buildings.

From the North
