Mews Cottage is full of character and has a peaceful location with lovely view. It is part of a development of converted farm buildings, built from Lakeland stone and with traditional Lakeland stone floors in the living areas.  It has been attractively furnished and fitted to a high standard, with every modern convenience, making it a real home from home. The kitchen has just been refurbished to a high standard with fully integrated appliances and soft close cupboards and drawers. A unique feature of this cottage is the sauna - perfect for relaxing after a hard day on the fells! Mews Cottage is situated in the attractive hamlet of Bampton, in the Lowther Valley. This is a tranquil, unspoilt and beautiful area of the Lake District: perfect for getting away from it all and for seeing wildlife like red squirrels, deer and buzzards. However, the location is still also convenient for accessing not only other parts of the Lake District, but also the Yorkshire Dales, Teesdale and Hadrian’s Wall. Bampton has a village store/Post Office with tea room, children’s playground and there is a lovely pub a gentle stroll away in the neighbouring hamlet of Bampton Grange (opening hours vary). There are other excellent pubs serving food a short drive away in Askham, Tirril and Shap, as well as the hotel at Haweswater. The nearest lakes are Haweswater and Ullswater. The area is perfect for walking and cycling with its quiet scenic roads and there is plenty of good walking from the doorstep, including on the surrounding fells leading over to Ullswater. Popular fells such as Hallin Fell and Place Fell and Mardale Head are nearby, and information on local walks is provided in the cottage. There are lots of nearby attractions and activities including cycle hire, horse riding, Dalemain House and gardens, Aira Force, Ullswater Steamers and other water sports.  The nearest town to Bampton is Penrith, Approximately 7 miles and the M6 is just a 10 minute drive for easy access.  Keswick is only 30 minutes drive and the southern lakes can readily be accessed in a scenic drive over Kirkstone Pass or through St John’s in the Vale, making Mews Cottage a great base to enjoy a holiday in the Lake District.

We had a wonderful experience at Mews Cottage, spending 4 weeks there in June and July. The location is great for many spectacular walks as well as access to Penrith, Keswick and Kendal. The cottage is very comfortable and the conservatory and sauna really do the trick when feeling a little chilly, especially after taking a dip in the icy river which is only 5-10 minutes walk away. We loved watching the horses frolicking in the field next door as well as the birds (and red squirrel!) having a go at the bird feeder in the garden. Even though the cottage is flanked by other cottages, the garden is secluded by hedges and it felt very private and was very quiet. Our hosts were incredibly helpful, suggesting many walks and activities. Even though we went walking every day for 4 weeks, we felt we only scratched the surface of rambling potential. We highly recommend Mews Cottage, especially for walkers!

Excellent cottage very comfortable and really enjoyed the sauna after a day’s walking on the hills. Beautiful tranquil setting in a quiet corner of the Lake District.

It is a pleasant cottage with a nice addition of sauna which we enjoyed a lot. The location is quiet and beautiful though the cottage is part of other cottages complex and is at the end of long terrace of cottages which is not obvious from the cottage description. The cleanness could be improved. Also, in the bathroom there is quite strong smell of oil (used for heating probably) which is almost constantly present.
