The Mews

Luxury Converted Barn With Hot Tub

  • Sleeps 2
  • 1 Bedroom
  • 1.5 Bathrooms
  • Strictly no dogs

The Mews is the perfect couples retreat. Situated on Lambside Farm, this lovely detached stone building was originally a barn and home to a domesticated gos hawk. Named in honour of its former resident, it has been thoughtfully renovated to provide delightful, modern accommodation for two people.

The Property:
Although it is just across the lane from Shepherd’s Cottage, The Mews has been arranged to give complete seclusion and offers an open plan living area downstairs with a woodburner, and a modern kitchen with a small dining area. There is also a small cloakroom downstairs with a toilet and basin. Outside is a delightful secluded patio and garden with your own private wooden wood fired hot tub – so romantic!

A spiral staircase winds up to the first floor, also open plan, which has a king size bed and bathroom area with toilet (discreetly hidden behind the bookcase), hand basin and a wonderful antique roll top bath, quirkily painted like a cow!

French doors open out onto the patio from the bedroom, giving you an area of total privacy (apart from the odd cow peering over the fence perhaps) from which to soak up the serenity of the surrounding countryside and to enjoy a soak in the gorgeous wooden hot tub. The kitchen even has a Nespresso coffee machine so you can make a perfect espresso to enjoy while sitting on the patio in the morning sun!

Doubles, singles or quadruples, no we’re not talking about drinks, we’re talking about tennis! This year we’re offering the opportunity to use Carswell Farm’s hardcore tennis court (pre-book) – for guests wanting to stay active this summer, why not get in touch and book!

*Please bring your own tennis rackets and balls, pre-bookable only for one hour at a time. The tennis courts are within the grounds of the owners house, therefore no dogs allowed.

The Mews has underfloor heating downstairs, central heating upstairs, a private parking area and all the standard facilities that we offer. Hotel quality white bed linen and big fluffy towels and bath robes are all provided, as well as tea-towels, bath mats and environmentally friendly cleaning materials. We put delicious local organic milk in the fridge for your arrival – with our compliments, along with enough recycled paper toilet rolls, Fair Trade tea, coffee, sugar and local organic herbal tea to get you started!

Meal hampers: 
We offer a number of hampers which can be pre-ordered and placed in The Mews ready for your arrival, so you don’t have to worry about cooking for the first 24 hours. Check out what food hampers are available.

Throughout the year we offer a unique collection of workshops such as foraging and safari tours, here at Carswell Farm. It’s a great way to experience something new, in the great outdoors.
