What Is a Mews House

A traditional mews is a cobbled street (quite often a dead end cul-de-sac) with two rows of terraced cottages facing each other.

The word “Mews” comes from the time when the Royal hawks were ‘mewed’ or moulted in the Royal Mews at Charing Cross. The use changed to stabling in the reign of King Henry VIII.
