The Bower House is a luxury holiday cottage for two:
The Bower House has been converted into a stunning single storey holiday cottage. It is built of local limestone and sandstone under a Westmorland slate roof. There is a real ‘Wow’ factor as you walk through the oak door and see the amazing view through the huge picture window ahead of you to Cross Fell.
Double glass doors open onto the wide sandstone terrace with dining table and chairs set above the dog exercise field with private access.

History note: The Bower House is an old name but is the original house at Greengill Farm. It was replaced by the two storey Greengill House in 1825. Originally there was a stone flagged living room with fireplace, and a separate sleeping room up wooden steps over calf pens below. Sleeping over the animals made for a warmer night!

We had a wonderful week here, and on our many days and evenings out we looked forward to coming “home” to our lovely holiday residence. It’s been such a nice week, we would like to return in the future.
Thank you very much for a lovely stay in the Bower House. We have thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The cottage has been wonderfully relaxing after embarking on a few Morland circular walks. The views have been breathtaking! Thank you for your kind welcoming gesture of the flowers and bottle of wine. We will definitely be returning again very soon in the future.
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you very much for a lovely stay in The Bower House a couple of weeks ago. It was so cosy, you were very helpful and the cottage was gorgeous with amazing views, wood burning stove kept us lovely and warm and I have to say the breakfast at The Mill Yard Cafe was the best we have had for a long time!!!
