About Coal Yeat Cottage

Coal Yeat Cottages offer a truly unique and captivating experience and are the perfect place to get away from it all and relax within the beautiful Lake District. It is perfect for those who enjoy walking with access on foot from the cottage onto The "Cumbrian Way" and a wealth of fantastic walks available locally in the surrounding area.

For wildlife lovers and those with a passion for the great outdoors, the area is a vast playground with picturesque tarns and stunning views just waiting to be discovered. Lowick Common is a particular highlight with over a thousand acres of stunning scenery where you can spot toads, badgers and notoriously shy deer and herons to name just a few.

Fishing enthusiasts are in for a real treat. The owners are able to offer FREE fishing (subject to holding the correct license which is available locally) where you can fish for Sea Trout and Salmon on the River Crake (half mile stretch).

If you are looking for a holiday in the Lake District without too many tourists and sophisticated well equipped holiday accommodation then Coal Yeat is for you. It offers two contemporary stylish holiday homes which have been imaginatively designed with open-plan living to ensure your holiday is relaxing and memorable. Both cottages are a great choice for a family holiday and also for couples who want to get together. If both cottages (Yan and Tyan) are hired together they can provide a unique environment for groups of up to 11 guests.

'Yan' and 'Tyan' both afford breathtaking views over the beautiful Lakeland fells. They are situated between the Cumbrian town of Ulverston (well known for its festivals) and the peaceful township of Lowick in the Crake Valley on a private estate on the southern edge of the Lake District's stunning national park. Here you can enjoy total isolation and yet be within just three miles of the Lakeland market town of Ulverston with a great range of shops, restaurants and pubs for a meal out, sports centre (including a pool and gym) and a championship golf course.

The picturesque Crake Valley travels through lush meadows and wooded areas as it makes its way from Coniston Water to Morecambe Bay, passing Lowick Green (home to the Farmers Arms - a good place to stop and refuel); and ancient bobbin mills showing the heritage of the pretty Lakeland villages.

Attractions and places of interest include:

  • Coniston Water offering plenty of opportunities for watersports (four miles away).
  • Lake Windermere with its Lake Cruises (six miles).
  • The pretty ancient village of Cartmel, famed for its sticky toffee pudding and a popular haunt for steeple chase enthusiasts (meets take place on the May and August bank holidays).
  • Haverthwaite Steam Engines and Lakeside Steam Cruises - a leisurely way of soaking up the scenery!
  • Victorian seaside town of Grange (thirty minute drive).
  • Castles, stately homes and gardens (discover the houses of Ruskin, Beatrix Potter and Wordsworth).

There are also numerous outdoor activities to enjoy including: climbing; kayaking; sailing; mountain biking; windsurfing; High mountain walking; scrambling; 4x4 driving; quad biking; paint balling; caving; bird watching; tandem sky diving; clay pigeon shooting; horse riding and hot air ballooning.
