Mews Cottage is full of character and has a peaceful location with a 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 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. Anyone familiar with the cult film ’Withnail and I’ will recognise the village phone box across the road from the cottage.
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 itself has a village store with tea room, children’s playground and an excellent pub, The Mardale Inn. There are other excellent pubs a short drive away in Askham, Tirril and Shap, as well as the Haweswater Hotel.
Askham also boasts a Michelin starred restaurant 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, Place Fell and High Street are nearby, and information on local walks is provided in the cottage. Well known fells such as Helvellyn, Skiddaw and Blencathra are only a short drive away.
The magnificent High Cup Nick in the Pennines is also only a short drive away. There are lots of nearby attractions and activities including cycle hire (including e-bikes at Lowther Castle), mountain biking, 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 (and Ambleside and Grasmere) 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.
