  • "Great stay yet again."

    cannot wait to return, a great cottage with walks right on your door step. perfect for our dog. a great location for towns nearby too.

  • "Great location and easy parking."

    Wifi was strong enough that I received a message while I was in a nearby pub! The studio was actually larger than the photos due to the high ceilings. It would be great for 1 or 2 people. I already recommended it to my brother and sister-in-law.

  • "Lovely comfortable cottage."

    Very peaceful. Pleased with the parking. Would you consider leaving some clothes hangers in the cupboard or asking guests to bring some with them. We enjoyed our stay and had excellent service at the pub with lovely food. Thank you

  • "The property was very nice."

    We liked having plenty of cupboard space and hooks to hang clothes on. Bathroom and shower were excellent. Everything in the kitchen was good. No real complaints but it would help to have another light at the other side of the bed and maybe more powerful bulbs. We like to read in bed. Also some instructions on how to operate the heater as it was quite cold when we were there. We did manage to get it on. We would have liked to come again next year but it was already booked for the week we wanted.

  • "Although the cottage is small and basic it is very clean and comfortable."

    There is everything you need including a laundry room which has all the facilities you need. The cottages are in a lovely position with many walks from the door. It is the second time I have visited recently and would gladly return.

  • "A lovely little cottage situated in the beautiful village of Braithwaite and surrounded by stunning mountains."

    The cottage is ideal as a base to explore Keswick and its surrounding countryside. Although the property is small, the bathroom and shower were the best aspects of the cottage. There are 3 things that we need to point out to the owner: 1) The hinge on the cupboard was broken when we arrived. 2) The one bedside light didn't work (Assume the bulb had blown) but perhaps a bedside light on each side of the bed needs to be considered. 3) The mattress seemed to sag a bit in the middle meaning that we didn't have the best nights sleep. We would, however, book again as the property and location was ideal for our 5 day break.

  • "Some information about how to use the heating is needed."

    It was freezing the first night we needed blankets just to sit and watch TV. Lots of cobwebs everywhere. Brilliant walking area and excellent routes from the doorstep.

  • "Great cottage."

    Although small it had everything that we wanted. Comfortable and cozy and a little over 30 seconds to reach either the village store, which was very well stocked or the local pub (Royal Oak) which served good food as well as a good pint.

    Listing was accurate and a super location at the heart of the village but for us the studio cottage was just too small, especially at the high price charged

  • "The studio was really lovely, far better than the photos."

    Thick walls, a beamed vaulted ceiling, soft carpeting and god quality furniture. Everything was spotlessly clean and the whole complex looks to have been recently re-decorated. Nice little kitchen area with everything I needed. There is a decent sized shower room with fluffy towels & masses of hot water. The chairs and bed were really very comfy. I had plenty of space for my clothing etc. The washing machine in the laundry room was very handy. There was a good sized new looking flat screen TV with Netflix but, unfortunately, it conked out one evening. I left a message for Lorraine next morning & when I got back from my walk there was a spanking new Samsung TV in the studio! Great service. Braithwaite is a pretty village with 3 good pubs & a nice village shop. Is easy to get to Keswick by bus & you can also get to Borrowdale & Buttermere on buses that go through the village. There are incredible walks close by including the Coledale and Newlands Horseshoes. The weather was fabulous but I think even had it been cold I would have been cosy as the heater was very effective, there is a heated towel rail in the shower room too which is great for drying towels. I really enjoyed my stay and can highly recommend Braithwaite Mews Studios.

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.
