This handsome property offers a touch of grandeur in a peaceful and romantic setting.

Situated at the far head of the Kentmere Valley parallel to the Troutbeck Valley, this is a protected and unspoiled area of natural beauty, popular among walkers yet incredibly peaceful. From the village of Kentmere, follow the track that leads to a splendid collection of mountain tops including Thornthwaite Crag, Froswick, High Street, Mardale Ill Bell and Harter Fell. The nearby village of Staveley boasts a 1388 church, a range of shops and a few inns offering restorative hearty meals. A three mile drive from here will take you to the linked towns of Bowness and Windermere, where you can jump aboard a steam boat, browse the independent shops or simply sit back and enjoy the spectacular view of iconic Lake Windermere.

A private entrance opens into a small hall where you can leave walking boots and coats before continuing through to the welcome sitting room. Decorated in soft neutral tones and filled with natural light through large sash windows, this room is light and airy by day and cosy and warm by night when the wood burner is roaring away. Enjoy meals with a view at the small dining table in the window before settling down to enjoy a good film. The kitchen is compact yet well-equipped and opens onto the rear garden. Upstairs, the bedroom is spacious and elegant with a luxurious king-size French antique style bed, en-suite shower room and delightful coffee table from which to sit and admire the inspiring mountain view.

Outside, the communal grounds offer plenty of space for all guests to enjoy. Dine on the terrace overlooking the valley or find a shady spot to relax with a good book on the grassy banks.

Lovely Cottage, great location, perfect for those wishing to experience lake district walking without the crowds.

Beautiful and very peaceful cottage. It is off the beaten track, so be prepared for the drive down a narrow road, but it is worth it. Walks on your doorstep, amazing scenery and only birds chirping for noise. Lovely!!

A beautiful cottage in a fabulous location. With music on and a cake to greet us it set the scene for a really relaxing break. The views are fantastic, and it was great to walk out of our front door straight into some brilliant walking for our dog. Thoroughly recommend it.

Our recent stay at "The Mews" Capplerigg was a present from our children. We have been visiting the Lakes for years having spent our honeymoon in Coniston. We've stayed in a number of cottages over the years but have never stayed in such an amazing place as "The Mews", the attention to detail and the comfort and homeliness is incredible. The welcomRead moree we received from the owners was outstanding and much appreciated. We thoroughly enjoyed the Kentmere Valley and the peace and tranquility of the property. We will definitely be making a return visit in the near future. Many thanks. Hide

We had a very nice stay in the Mews, and would recommend it to others. When we arrived we found the radio on (our favourite Classic FM!) and a lamp lit, as well as a delicious chocolate cake. These were lovely touches and much appreciated.

It is more than 30years since we last holidayed in Capplerigg, then owned by the Wyons- my parents-in - law. We met with Mrs Cummings who purchased the property from the Wyons and did some wonderful reminiscing and congratulated Mrs Cummings on the improvements made since we last tramped through the place in muddy boots and wet suits. - alas, no moRead morere following the superb upgrades. Our house of choice was the Mews since that is the one we used all those years ago but much cosier now following the increase in size to the Pengennet. We had a lovely weekend, full of memories and can thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a few peaceful days. Hide

We have had a wonderfully relaxing week here in this beautiful house, we have loved it and really don't want to leave. The Mews is perfectly finished and has everything you could want and need.
