  • "Our second holiday at this cottage and will come here again."

    Lovely little cottage in our favourite area

    Reviewed by Joy4.7Dec 2023

  • "This is such a lovely little cottage and was perfect for our short stay in the Lakes."

    It was so warm and cosy and the bed was very comfy. The shower was a bit of a challenge as the water just trickled out and kept going hot and cold! A shop and pub are just a short walk away, I would certainly stay here again.

  • "The accommodation was clean."

    Staff friendly. Great location. Quite small. Electric towel rail in bathroom not working. Would have been handy for drying towels. Parking rather tight but okay. Question:- Would I stay here again. Yes

  • "The property was better than I expected though the kitchen area was tired, the oven was not screwed into the cabinet and the end of the oven cabinet is loose and moves, I pushed it back into place but it needs some attention, the seat outside the property were not used as the car had to be parked close to the seat to allow other cars to get by making the seat unusable but this is understandable, I used the seat opposite the property on the other side of the road by the river instead, the seats may be better to be moved where they could be used by others."

    But these were minor issues and I had a pleasant stay in a quiet and warm property I will use the location again in the furture.

  • "The toilet seat moves around."

    The basin makes a racket when water goes down the plug, and the shower is very weak. Not impressed that we had to ask the cleaner to remove a large amount of mould from the kitchen skylight. Radiator in the bathroom not working all week despite advising you on the Saturday morning. The gap to get into the bed is very narrow, so not suitable for a larger guest. Bed was comfortable though. Kitchen stocked adequately. No garden access for dogs.

  • "Mews Cottages are ideally situated in the picturesque village of Braithwaite and Braithwaite is a short drive from Keswick."

    On a good day, with the fine weather Gods in your favour, you can walk to Keswick. There is no need to take the car anywhere once you have parked outside the cottage. There are beautiful fell walks, dog friendly pubs and a delightful village store all within a short walk. The cottage was perfect. Warm and cosy, and we would certainly book again.

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.
