Bailey Mill is situated in the beautiful Border Reivers country which is renowned for its wild and dangerous battles in the past. Their story is vividly brought to life at nearby Tullie House museum in Carlisle. Bailey offers a wide choice of activity. The Reivers Cycle Route, which is a spur of the Coast to Coast cycle route, is nearby and the Coast to Coast cycle route passes through Bailey. Walking is one of the best ways to appreciate Bailey’s peace and quiet and the quiet countryside provides the perfect opportunity to do some serious bird watching undisturbed. Bailey is ideally placed to tour the Borders, the Solway Firth, the Lake District and Hadrians Wall. Also, for those that love to shop the Lanes shopping centre houses many well-known high street names and we have the Gretna Gateway centre only a short drive away. The business has been trading for over 30 years with an established client base offering a superb business opportunity and scope for further development.
