Three delightful hamlets, just outside of Millom, on the West Coast of Cumbria

The Hill

This little hamlet lies just outside of Millom in Cumbria. As it‛s  name indicates, it is built on a hill overlooking the Duddon Estuary,  the second largest in Cumbria after the Solway Firth. There are  several holiday homes to let in this idyllic place and the superb  views will not disappoint. One can see right around the Estuary and  witness the spectacular views and tides. With many places to walk  and cycle this is truly a place to relax and take in the surrounding  scenery.

The Green

Go a little further ‘down hill‛ and you will arrive at The Green.  Whilst only a tiny village it boasts its own Train Station (Green  Road) and a local pub. “The Punch Bowl Inn” dates back to at least  the 18th Century and offers a delicious menu for which most of  the ingredients are sourced locally. From the railway station  visitors can travel right up the Western Cumbrian coast taking in  beautiful coastal scenery as they do so. There is also a Village  Hall (Thwaites Village Hall), known as the ‘hub of the community‛  This hall hosts many events throughout the year including a  “Vintage Car and Motorbike Show” held every September.

Thwaites & The Green

Thwaites

Just a little further up the road from The Green and on the  junction with the A595 is Thwaites. A small village on the edge of  the Duddon Estuary. St Anne‛s Church, a predominant feature at  Thwaites was built around 1853 – 54 and is now a Grade 11 Listed  Building. Within a very short drive is Brockwood Hall, which offers 32 self  catering Norwegian lodges housed around a manor house. Also in  the area are based the Cumbrian Heavy Horses, providing the  ultimate horse riding experience at the world‛s only BHS approved  heavy horse riding centre. Swinside Circle, a marvellous neolithic  stone circle lies in a field on moorland near the Duddon Valley and  is yet again, only a short distance away.
