  • "Great accommodation and a perfect base for walking."

    The second time we have stayed and we will come back again. Staff at apartments very pleasant and helpful.

  • "Good location and a lovely comfy cottage."

    The only thing I can think to add, would be a curtain or blind to the door.

  • "The cottage was in a brilliant location, there was some confusion when everyone arrived together re the parking but that was resolved fairly quickly."

    The cottage was clean and generally well equipped, although we could have used a larger casserole dish and a grater. The bedroom was airy, comfortable, spacious and had loads of storage which was great. The bathroom window held clear glass rather than frosted and was in direct view from the courtyard so we had to shut the window and blind every time we used the toilet or shower. In general our stay was really enjoyable thank you.

  • "Lovely cottage attached to the main farmhouse, due to this it could be noisy, late night comings and goings clearly heard."

    Really nice bedroom and bathroom but sitting area let the property down, uncomfortable sofas. Could use somewhere to hang coats and some sharp knives! Excellent location with ready access to some lovely walks. Really handy corner shop. Great base to access the fells and several amazing bodies of water. Really poor parking facilities, tight spaces not suitable for a bigger car.

  • "Excellent location for walking."

    Apartment was clean and comfortable. The bedroom was fabulous. Overall the property was spacious. Initially, we had limited crockery but after asking one of the staff for a salad bowl and a larger Cafetiere everything was promptly provided. A very enjoyable week.

    Furnished to a high standard. It would have been handy to have somewhere to hang jackets up. Thoroughly enjoyable holiday!

  • "Pleasant stay in nice cottage in a beautiful village and area, a small welcoming pack would have been appreciated, few tea bags small milk etc."

    just to tide you over until you found the shop which is actually very close. parking can be tricky when more than 1 car arrives for each cottage, should perhaps be restricted as nearby parking is available I think. otherwise a great stay in a comfy cottage. I would stay again.

  • "The place was lovely except the kitchen was extremely under equipped, very little cutlery, no side plates."

    Also the hot water was luke warm and even never adding cold water we had to boil the kettle to do the dishes. However it was extremely clean and in a fantastic location.

  • "Such a lovely property was stunned by bedroom beautifully decorated light and airy."

    The beds were really comfortable. Great views from the window and positioned well in Braithwaite. We would definitely stay again.

  • "Nice property and exactly what we needed from a cottage."

    Could be improved by basics such as extra loo roll, salt and pepper and coat hooks. Quite disappointing these were not provided.

  • "Lovely location and annex layout was lovely and cosy."

    The floor was really dirty when we arrived, we hoovered with the hoover that was supplied and then the downstairs smelt like wet dog for several hours after using the hoover.

  • "The convenience of the location."

    Bigger than expected, wonderful huge bedroom.

  • "Generally we thought the cottage was very nice, well equipped and in a great location."

    We did have a few (minor) suggestions/comments:- 1. It would be helpful to have a collated folder of information about the property - the information about bins etc. was spread around the property and needed tracking down. Some info on how to recycle would also be helpful. 2. The walks folder was very useful, although the religious information at the back of the folder was a bit strange! 3. The cottage (No. 3) could do with a clean of the ceilings and upper surfaces - there were quite a lot of cobwebs and the roof beams in the bedroom were very dusty (we’re not particularly fussy, but it was quite noticeable). There were many more positives than negatives though, and we’d definitely stay there again! Thanks Dave and Catherine

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.
