LOCATION Bailey Mill is situated in the attractive and unspoilt Bailey Water Valley in the northern reaches of Cumbria and close to extensive areas of forest. This forest forms part of the Border Forest Park which is a vast area of open access forest with abundant wildlife and ideal opportunities for riding, cycling and walking. Bailey is a scattered hamlet of farms and house to the north of the villages of Roadhead and Sleetbeck and a short distance to the north if the England/Scotland border and the historic Liddesdale Valley which is renowned for the Border Reivers and its lawless history. The nearest local shopping is over the border in Newcastleton which lies about 7 miles to the north with the regional shopping centre of Carlisle with its large range of services and other facilities situated about 19 miles to the south west. There is also access to the M6 motorway at Carlisle as well as a station on the main west coast rail line. The market town of Brampton lies approximately 15 miles to the south with the town of Longtown about 13 miles to the south west.

Walking is one of the best ways to appreciate Baileys peace and quiet and the quiet countryside provides the perfect opportunity to do some serious bird watching undisturbed.
