The property

The Old Farmhouse is a delightful, character cottage dating back to 1656, set in the pretty, Cumbria village of Braithwaite. It retains much of its original, quirky features such as the slate floors, low ceiling beams and an impressive inglenook fireplace. You can bring your families and friends to share a memorable break in the Lake District, with extra sofa beds for flexible sleeping arrangements and two en-suite shower rooms for convenience. Feel welcomed into the kitchen with its fabulous AGA range cooker taking centre stage, ready to assist with the cooking of hearty breakfasts and tasty dinners. Get together around the large dining table in the living room and later cosy up on the sofas before the fire and catch up on some of your favourite TV programmes. Upstairs are three well-appointed and spacious bedrooms to retire to, together with a large family bathroom, where you can soak in the clawfoot bath tub and relax your muscles after a walk on the fells.

Old Farmhouse Mews, Cumbria

Nestled right in the heart of Braithewaite village in a stunning region of Cumbria, surrounded by towering fells waiting to be climbed, Old Farmhouse Mews offers a wonderful collection of accommodation for large groups. Each is wonderfully appointed with plenty of space to unwind with your loved ones after an adventure in the local area. You can return to cook up tasty meals in the kitchen and get together around the dining table, before relaxing into your evening and making the most of an idyllic setting. Outside there is a communal yard with seating for you to sit out and soak up a warm summer's afternoon with a drink, and there is plenty of parking for several cars. Braithwaite is a very desirable village, with three good pubs, one which has been runner up for several years for CAMRAs prestigious pub of the year award, along with a village shop serving freshly baked bread and other produce. From the village are many fell walks, including the Coledale Round, offering an awe-inspiring trail through a classic u-shaped valley with stunning views and not a walk to be taken lightly. The Whinlatter Visitors Centre is close by and is great for children, with a tea room hosting a balcony for viewing red squirrels and woodland birds, an outdoor play area, mountain bike trail and several paths to explore around the forest. Venture across to Keswick for numerous shops and restaurants, as well as a visit to the Derwent Pencil Museum, Keswick Museum and Art Gallery and the famous Theatre by the Lake. There is also miniature golf, excellent parks, a climbing wall, and opportunities for fishing and mountain biking, whilst the beautiful lake of Derwentwater at the head of the Borrowdale Valley is not to be missed or is the Castlerigg Stone Corcle, thought to be 5000 years old. With so much to see and do in the surrounding area, bring your loved ones along to share a memorable break in Cumbria.

About the location

BRAITHWAITE

Keswick 3 miles.

Between the magnificent northern lakes of Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite, lies the village of Braithwaite. Still retaining much of its traditional appeal, the Coledale Beck runs through the village with whitewashed Lakeland cottages, two village shops and two real ale Inns each brimming with character! Between Braithwaite and Buttermere is the beautiful Newlands Valley, while picturesque Bassenthwaite Lake is well worth a visit. From a gentle countryside ramble to a challenging hike up Skiddaw, there really is something for everyone. Visit Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the lake with an open-air theatre, or take a trip around the lake. Lake District Wildlife Park, Dodd Wood, Derwentwater, and Keswick with its wide range of attractions, are also within easy reach.
