Welcome to The Mews, a beautiful and well appointed cottage set along a quiet street in the much loved Lake District town of Keswick. Just a ten minute stroll from the heart of the town and with a wealth of wonderful walking straight from the door it really is in the ideal spot to make the most of all the area has to offer. Sleeping five in three comfortable bedrooms, the cottage forms part of a building dating back to the 19th century and has been tastefully brought into the 21st century with sumptuous furnishings, modern appliances and a gorgeous extension with double doors looking out onto Skiddaw, the mighty fell standing guard over the town.
Where to begin on what to do in Keswick? Stunningly situated on the shores of Derwentwater with a wealth of shops and restaurants the town has so much to offer for everyone. From those seeking peace and quiet to adventurers seeking adrenaline fuelled outings it really has something for everyone. For the outdoor enthusiast Keswick is an absolute paradise. It has unparalleled fell walking opportunities with everything from Lake District giants such as Skiddaw and Blencathra to accessible lower peaks such as Latrigg and Catbells. For the more gentle potterers why not take a walk around the lake? You could enjoy a gorgeous lunch at one of Borrowdale's marvellous eateries and catch the Derwentwater Launch back to town. How civilised.
Should you be keen to explore the culture and history of the area The Mews is in an ideal spot. Keswick is blessed with an award winning museum, an art deco cinema and a stunningly situated theatre all within easy walking distance of the cottage. Dating from around 3000 BC the ancient and mysterious Castlerigg Stone Circle lies just on the other side of the town, well worth a visit to admire the glorious views. The Lake District is also steeped in literary history and a short drive to Mirehouse, a historic manor house along the shore of Bassenthwaite, will delight fans of poetry. Nearby Cockermouth, a charming Georgian market town, was the birthplace of Wordsworth and visitors can still visit his childhood home. However you choose to spend your time here The Mews makes a warm and welcoming place to start.
Please be aware that The Mews has recently undergone a refurbishment and new photos will follow soon.
