I stayed here for 3 nights . Great location. I was able to walk into Keswick, Portinscale and Whinlatter Forest, there were also signposts locally for osprey viewing points . There is a lovely walk starting here up the only fell in Braithwaite. I stayed in cottage 1. It was lovely and clean with allocated parking for 1 car. Towels aren't supplied. Two local pubs , Coldale Inn was lovely , only went in for a drink but menu looked great , menu in cottage had no veggie options but they are available. I went to Royal Oak for food but it is only dog friendly at certains times so gave it a miss. General store has been closed for some time but there is a 'shop in a box' for essentials and 2 supermarkets in Keswick. On arrival there was a notice stating dogs are allowed but not upstairs or on furniture which was difficult to explain to my pooch . I understand why but my dog is used to sleeping in crate beside my bed and sitting on my lap or on fleece blanket on sofa so she cried most of the night and I couldn't relax in the cottage .
Located in the centre of the small village of Braithwaite, the mews are 7 small bedsit type accomodations. there is a small court yard for parking which can get a bit tight if there are a few people with cars staying in the anex house. The place was clean and fresh though decor a bit dated but in keeping with olde farmhouse style. There was everything we could have needed, There is a toilet/ shower room which looks new. They are also dog friendly which is a big bonus and the place was clean with no sign of previous dog.
This is an ideal location for exploring the hills especially Catbells nearby. There is a great pub called the Royal Oak 2 mins walk from the accomodation and its food is excellent. you are a 10 min drive or 25 min walk to Keswick. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it for couples, dog lovers and walkers. Hope to return one day.
