  • "The cottage was clean and had every thing we needed, The location is really nice, with good walks, pub with in walking distance, and a lovely cafe up the road, all are dog friendly, only down side it doesn't have its own garden and only a shower and not a bath, but I did know this when I booked."

    I do think that the owners could leave a small bottle of milk in the fridge just to start you off.

  • "We attended the Keswick Christian convention and had a wonderful week."

    Although we loved the cottage and its position there are some things I can point out. I didnt find the lighting good enough for reading in an evening. I wasnt warm enough in the bedding - spare blankets? The toilet we think was leaking round the bottom. The parking for 3 was difficult to get out of/into. Apart from that all fine!

    Parking sometimes a bit tricky. Shower quite small my husband had trouble getting in and out, but apart from that we had a very enjoyable stay.

  • "This was the second time I stayed with you."

    The situation was ideal for walking which was my main interest. The cottage was very comfortable in every way. The only negative point, is the lack of outside space, but this was not a problem for me but could be for a family. I will be back! David

  • "Clean comfortable and well equipped cottage."

    Good variety of walks from the door. Keswick good shops and very dog friendly. Unfortunately we had to cut short our stay due to noisy neighbors in the adjoining cottage who had the TV on very loud until 1am , and after 3 nights of very little sleep we decided to leave. The owner has been made aware of this and was very apologetic. My husband did actually speak to the people next door as we were packing up and he wasn’t aware the TV was loud he was asleep

  • "A fantastic stay!"

    A lovely little cottage with nice open plan living space which has been tastefully decorated. The kitchen is modern and the bed is incredibly comfortable. Great location for lots of walks and Wainwright's, also close to Keswick if needed. We loved Braithwaite!

    The wifi was good. Location was excellent. The house instructions were limited eg. no leaving instructions, no heating instructions.

    No grab rail in shower and floor slippery. Pity the whole place was not like the bedroom and kitchen.

Old Farmhouse Mews, Cumbria

Nestled right in the heart of Braithewaite village in a stunning region of Cumbria, surrounded by towering fells waiting to be climbed, Old Farmhouse Mews offers a wonderful collection of accommodation for large groups. Each is wonderfully appointed with plenty of space to unwind with your loved ones after an adventure in the local area. You can return to cook up tasty meals in the kitchen and get together around the dining table, before relaxing into your evening and making the most of an idyllic setting. Outside there is a communal yard with seating for you to sit out and soak up a warm summer's afternoon with a drink, and there is plenty of parking for several cars. Braithwaite is a very desirable village, with three good pubs, one which has been runner up for several years for CAMRAs prestigious pub of the year award, along with a village shop serving freshly baked bread and other produce. From the village are many fell walks, including the Coledale Round, offering an awe-inspiring trail through a classic u-shaped valley with stunning views and not a walk to be taken lightly. The Whinlatter Visitors Centre is close by and is great for children, with a tea room hosting a balcony for viewing red squirrels and woodland birds, an outdoor play area, mountain bike trail and several paths to explore around the forest. Venture across to Keswick for numerous shops and restaurants, as well as a visit to the Derwent Pencil Museum, Keswick Museum and Art Gallery and the famous Theatre by the Lake. There is also miniature golf, excellent parks, a climbing wall, and opportunities for fishing and mountain biking, whilst the beautiful lake of Derwentwater at the head of the Borrowdale Valley is not to be missed or is the Castlerigg Stone Corcle, thought to be 5000 years old. With so much to see and do in the surrounding area, bring your loved ones along to share a memorable break in Cumbria.

About the location


Keswick 3 miles.

Between the magnificent northern lakes of Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite, lies the village of Braithwaite. Still retaining much of its traditional appeal, the Coledale Beck runs through the village with whitewashed Lakeland cottages, two village shops and two real ale Inns each brimming with character! Between Braithwaite and Buttermere is the beautiful Newlands Valley, while picturesque Bassenthwaite Lake is well worth a visit. From a gentle countryside ramble to a challenging hike up Skiddaw, there really is something for everyone. Visit Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the lake with an open-air theatre, or take a trip around the lake. Lake District Wildlife Park, Dodd Wood, Derwentwater, and Keswick with its wide range of attractions, are also within easy reach.
