Mew Cottages occupy a picturesque setting in the delightful East Lakes hamlet of Roundthwaite, which nestles below the slopes of the fell known as Jeffreys Mount. The original barn was part of Roundthwaite Abbey, formerly part of a working farm.
Directly opposite the barn, and across the approach lane, is Roundthwaite Beck with its wooded banks, which are a carpet of flowers in the spring.
The gardens of the barn conversion back directly on to the fellside where there is a public footpath leading into the hills. The countryside hereabouts is typical of the Lake District and quite spectacular.
Roundthwaite is located in the Lune Valley, just within the eastern boundary of the Lake District National Park, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The hamlet is convenient for Junction 38 of the M6 motorway with excellent links to Penrith, Carlisle, Lancaster, Preston and Manchester. It is well placed for Kendal, Sedbergh, Orton and Kirkby Stephen where there are excellent secondary schools. Sedbergh has a renowned private school.
