Affectionately known as Brews Cottage, this three-bedroom cottage is more formally known as Mews Cottage and is situated in the heart of the market town of Keswick. Its nickname comes from its proximity to the Keswick Brewing Company, which backs onto the cottage. The brewery offers tours in which you can discover how beer is made using sheep wool and what makes the beer green! No tour would be complete without sampling the beer in the Flying Fox Bar and you can stock the fridge from the brewery shop.
The cottage itself sleeps four people across two double bedrooms on the first floor, plus there is an attic hideaway for up to three older children. The perfect children's getaway, the loft has a large TV available to hook up a gaming system, increasing the chance that parents can be left in peace downstairs! Keswick has been voted as the most dog-friendly town in Britain and well-behaved dogs are always welcome at Brews Cottage.
Just two minutes' walk into the centre of town, Brews Cottage is a stones throw from the River Greta. Across the river is Fitz Park (with a fantastic children's playground and tennis courts), Keswick Museum (the social enterprise Cafe West there is a highlight) and Keswick Spa children's swimming pool. Keswick makes a great base to explore the Lake District UNESCO World Heritage Site and there really is something to satisfy all budgets and all tastes.
Brews Cottage can accommodate up to 7 guests (the extra 3 people will be on put-up beds in the attic snug, which is not really suitable for younger children). If you would like to book the cottage for more than 4, please call the office to make the booking over the phone.
