Have just come back from a wonderful week here with my 20 year old son, walking the fells. Mews Cottage was cosy and warm, just perfect for returning at dusk, drying out, eating and relaxing. Brilliant location: Post Office that's also a food shop, newsagent etc only a few yards away, 3 pubs, and a tea shop, the lake steamer boat right there. Easy to get to by Virgin Trains to Penrith (very cheap in advance) and Stagecoach bus to the door, even on Sundays in winter. Loads of walks on your doorstep and even a cultural centre (Rheged) nearby that's great for shopping and coffee, as well as films, exhibitions and kids play. At the end of our stay our wonderful hosts even gave us a lift to the station as they feared that the weather might have stopped the buses.
