The Mews is just a little out of the ordinary but in such a wonderful way; this gem of a property is tucked away in a quiet corner of the Lake District National Park and exudes peace and harmony from every room. The upstairs living-dining-kitchen area has a big picture window with amazing rural views across to the fells whilst the 3 bedrooms have been cleverly arranged to suit a variety of holiday parties from extended families to 3 couples wanting to stay together. The cosy living area has a wood burner and plenty of space for everyone to relax around the fire or chat over dinner whilst the kitchen is handily close by and well equipped. The enclosed landscaped garden offers all round beautiful views, perfect for taking a seat at the oak table and watching the sunset with a cold glass of a favourite tipple.

Mosser is a quiet rural area within the western Lake District National Park just to the south of Cockermouth. The nearest pubs are a short drive away and Cockermouth is only 10 minutes by car or a 3 mile walk over fields and along the river; it offers a good range of shops and restaurants which are bustling with life throughout the day and into the night. Quiet lanes and footpaths lead through and out of Mosser - perfect for evening strolls with verges full of flowers and the air full of birdsong, or starting out from your door to walk to beautiful Loweswater; a 2 ½ mile route with lovely views.

Ideally located for exploring west Cumbria, The Mews (Mosser) can offer easy access to the Lake District hotspots but also the chance to explore some lesser known areas. The Cumbrian coast may provide some surprises; with clifftop walks around the sandstone headland of St Bees, the wide-open expanses of the Solway Coast AONB and in between the towns of Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport have historic harbours, industrial heritage and museums to discover. Turning attention inland there is great access to the western fells, generally quieter than the better-known fells around Buttermere or Keswick, the tops around Loweswater and Ennerdale are no less beautiful and offer some lovely ridge walks with stunning views. Lower level walks abound with bluebells in the spring, Rannerdale is well known but the woods on the southern side of Loweswater maybe less so and the woodland walk here is wonderful throughout the year particularly as it can be linked with a visit to The Kirkstile Inn for a refreshment stop!
