About us

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves, we are John & Karen Fisher and are proud to be the family owners of 1, The Mews.

We have now been married for over 37 years and lived locally in Borrowash for most of that time, bringing up our three children who all attended the Asterdale school, only yards from the Mews.

I have recently been made redundant from a life long engineering career, and Karen has recently left a dedicated career of being a house mother to over-seas students at the local Ockbrook private school, and we both wanted to take this opportunity to pursue a very different business venture.

In my earlier years I spent many years travelling as a service engineer, within the UK and abroad, and know what it is like staying in hotels for many nights on end. Over the years we have also made friends with the families of the over-seas students whilst visiting Derby, as we have been the UK guardians for many students during the last 12 years. Even now some current students will still stay with us on occasions, and some of the old one’s return from abroad to give us a special visit.

Our experience has shown that there are many different reasons for people wishing to visit and stay in Derby, and we felt that a different approach to offering a place to stay may be appreciated, so we wanted to bring the Mews bungalow to the general public, and give a unique service and a different meaning to your visit.
