About Graham and Sue Millard
We've been married for over 40 years and we've lived here for 35 of them. Graham based his heavy goods transport business here and we stocked the small holding with sheep, cattle, ducks and hens. During that time we've done various other things apart from farming--from making horse harness and teaching carriage driving to lecturing in computing. I now manage web sites and write, and Graham looks after the cottage. Our children are grown-up and have their own families now, but we still have our dog Micky Wippitt, cat Gracie, and Fell pony Ruby. The farm is grass-let to neighbours who graze sheep on our fields.
Graham and Sue Millard purchased this Cottage in 1983

A hidden gem
Stayed two nights as a base for a family event. Perfect for our time there. Loved staying in a less touristy area. Heard cuckoos and curlew on our morning dog walks. Thrown slightly getting there as the service station, on the route instructions, had changed it's name, so we missed the turning, but turned around at next junction and we found it fine.
Lovely quiet retreat in the heart of the countryside but only a mile off the M6. Ideal for ourselves and 3 grandchildren. Well equipped, everything clean and tidy. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Perfect for oud needs
We are not in Penrith! We are near Tebay. TURN OFF THE SAT NAV and follow our directions to avoid an unlit, steep, winding narrow approach road that will scare the pants off you. OUR route is short and easy!
The flora locally is amazing, even roadside verges can be SSSIs.
Lots of quiet roads, cycle routes and footpaths
We're close enough to the main West Coast line to observe steam trains passing - but not near enough to be troubled by noise!
Use of a car or motorbike is essential (there is no public transport).
Nearest airport: Carlisle (44 miles), Manchester or Liverpool (100 miles).
Nearest motorway junction: M6 J38. TURN OFF YOUR SAT NAV and check our web site for directions, or contact us for the shortest and easiest way to reach us.
Orton 3 miles, Tebay 5 miles, Shap 8 miles.
