General description

The Mews is a wonderfully spacious and very well appointed cottage for five set along a quiet residential road in Keswick. It forms part of a small group of houses converted from the former mews of the old vicarage. Dating back to the 19th century it retains many of its characterful features like the handmade period windows while having a wonderful extension and all the modern day comforts you would want from your holiday home.

On arrival at The Mews you are first greeted by the porch-way with ample space for hanging coats and leaving your muddy boots. From here you enter the spacious double height hallway. The owners have thoughtfully provided lots of books, walking magazines and even some binoculars for guests to borrow during their stay which you'll find in a lovely dresser here. Ideal for planning your outdoor adventures or just whiling away a rainy afternoon watching the visiting birdlife.

Moving into the spacious living room you'll find two gorgeous deep leather sofas around a beautiful log burning stove. The room has a large TV with Freesat and a DVD player with a selection of discs. The owners have also kindly left some games for entertaining evenings in with the family. It's a delightful, warm and welcoming room for spending relaxing evenings.

Off the hallway you'll also find the wonderful kitchen and dining area. The large kitchen is extremely well equipped with everything you're likely to need for your stay including a dishwasher, microwave, range oven with gas hobs and a large island unit ideal for sociable food preparation. The lovely spacious room has a travertine floor with underfloor heating and light coloured units making it a bright, warm, open and welcoming space. It stretches through to a light filled extension with a dining table and chairs. It also has a gas stove-effect fire and another sofa benefitting from some stunning views of Skiddaw through the glass double doors leading out to the garden. It's a great place to enjoy a quiet glass of wine. Off the kitchen there is also an ideal utility space tucked away with a large freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer.

Heading to the first floor via the corner staircase guests will find a large open landing. Firstly to the beautiful master bedroom, this is a gorgeous room with king size, wooden sleigh bed, built-in wardrobes and a huge luxurious en-suite shower room. This is a wonderfully indulgent space with an art deco flourish about it with a mixer power shower with large walk-in shower enclosure. If you are taking advantage of the 10% discount for use of one bedroom, this lovely master bedroom will be made up for you unless you specify otherwise when you book (the other rooms won't be made up). On to the second king-size bedroom which has a stand alone wardrobe, a dresser and a lovely calming view out onto trees around the property. The single room is a lovely light cosy space with a wooden bed frame, wardrobe and chest.

On the opposite side of the landing you'll find the extra WC and the stunning family bathroom. This has a wonderfully indulgent feel about it with a large claw-foot bath, light wooden floors and a curved shower enclosure. It's a gorgeous room to while away some time soaking away those aching muscles from all that fell walking!

Outside the property is a lovely walled garden with mature shrubs and climbing plants. It has outdoor seating for summer evening meals. It's important to note that, while the garden is quite private it is not completely enclosed and small children shouldn't be left alone outside. What better way to spend a lovely summer evening than by opening those double doors from the cottage and enjoying that glorious view of Skiddaw. Pour yourself a glass of something and enjoy!
