Tethera is a converted animal shed which has undergone complete renovation, to be transformed into a luxurious retreat from the hub bub of everyday life.

A perfect rural holiday cottage with comfortable and modern luxury throughout. It is more reminiscent of a contemporary hotel than what you would expect from a traditional Lakeland cottage, with the 'contemporary cottage chic' styling proving a winning combination. Tethera boasts all modern luxuries such as full central heating, fully integrated kitchen, SKY TV in lounge and bedroom etc whilst maintaining the intimate feel of a classic Lakeland cottage with a real range fire and cosy rooms.

Coal Yeat Cottages are ideal couples or families, or if utilised together they offer a unique group environment. The highlight for both 'Yan', 'Tyan' and 'Tethera' is the breathtaking outlook over the much loved Lakeland fells.

Coal Yeat Cottages are so captivating, so unique you won't want to venture too far! There are unlimited local walks direct from the Coal Yeat doorstep. Yet you need not leave the estate to witness 360 degree views spanning out over Ulverston and Morecambe Bay (you can see Blackpool Tower on a good day), round over Gawthwaite Common (bikers dream), towards the Western Lakes and back to the stunning Coniston Fells. Alternatively simply explore the 1200 acres of Lowick Common with its hidden tarns, abundant wildlife and panoramic views from the top of the Beacon.

Here you are at one with nature. Sightings of deer, hare, badger, toads, heron and many birds of prey are a daily occurrence, while the night sky is a profusion of stars with so many shooters we've almost run out of wishes.

We also offer FREE fishing (subject to you having the correct license - available locally) on a half mile stretch of the River Crake for the fishing of Sea Trout and Salmon or fish the on-site pool.

All on the one level this well proportioned, cosy cottage provides a special spot for a romantic, countryside escape. Tethera is a comfortable, luxurious cottage, which has been furnished and decorated to a high standard.

There is a well proportioned double bedroom with two windows which flood the room with natural light. Decorated with elegant coordinating furnishings which perfectly complement the serene farrow and ball colour scheme. There is a deep inviting pocket sprung mattress, which is perfect to curl up in and watch the sky tv.

The bathroom is a modern and fully tiled funky room with a bath and over shower.

Tetera's main room is a cosy open-plan living, dining space which leads to the open plan kitchen area. The traditional cottage feel is present as soon as you light the magnificent range fire which is surrounded by the oversized stone fireplace and the serene Farrow and Ball colour scheme

Enjoy dinner, then sink and curl up into the deep sofa. What could be better than a delicious dinner, then curling up with your favourite tipple by the fire. The large flat screen TV offers a range of SKY digital channels or choose to chill out with a DVD, this is great space for socialising, reading or just relaxing.

The brand new kitchen is linked to the lounge by a stylish granite. This calming cream shaker style kitchen is well equipped with integrated dishwasher, electric oven, ceramic hob, microwave,and fridge/freezer.

Further details outdoors

Further details

Tethera is one of three rental and three residential properties within the estate. However, privacy for both permanent residents and holidaymakers alike is paramount and well planned!

A welcome pack is included in the price - we all need a treat after a long journey

The Duddon Valley region

The Lake District, world renowned for it’s stunning scenery, rugged mountains and inspirational backdrops needs little introduction. The central area, around Windermere and Ambleside, attract most of the visitors, while those in the know head to less frequented spots, such as the Lake District’s south-western peninsula. Here the mountains meet the coast to give dramatic and unique vistas.

With a vast range of tourist attractions, historical sites and leisure activities (many within 20/30 minutes drive of Tethera), this part of the Lakes has so much to offer we are sure you will want to return again and again.

For the serious walker the mountains of Skiddaw, Scafell and Helvellyn provide enjoyable challenges, whilst at lower levels there are hundreds of routes wandering among the lakes and stone-walled fields. You can even choose a lake to suit your mood: if bustling lakeside towns and exhilarating watersports take your fancy, then try Windermere or Coniston Water, where you can cruise the lake on a steam-powered boat soaking up the scenery in Victorian style or master a new skill such as kayaking, sailing or even raft building.

If it’s peace and tranquillity you seek then the secluded lakes of Buttermere and Wastwater are not to be missed.

As thousands and thousands of visitors each year are drawn to experiences that are offered on water, fells and picturesque towns one can often feel entrapped on the tourist trail.

So much more awaits you than the bland souvenir filled streets of Bowness, so come and discover the locals take on the Lake District. Cumbria offers sp much more than the lakes alone. Explore the National Nature Reserve on Walney Island, the golden sand dunes of Roan Head or visit the hidden, picturesque Duddon Valley, with its heather clad moors peppered with birch trees......................................


We are situated on the southern fringe of the Lake District National Park in pure isolation betwixt the festival town of Ulverston and the village of Lowick within the Crake valley. Less than four miles in one direction finds all the amenities of the popular market town of Ulverston with its wide choice of eclectic shops, inns and restaurants, a championship golf course, sports centre with swimming pool and gym. Two miles the other finds the Crake Valley winding from the foot of Coniston Water through Lowick with it‘s 14th century coaching inn, old Lakeland working bobbin villages, fertile fields and woodland until it reaches the shores of Morecambe bay.

Ideal for walkers, bikers and escapees this is rural Cumbria at it’s peak. Coniston Water 4 miles and Lake Windermere 6 miles are close enough for a quick dip (we’ll let you into the locals secrets and you’ll discover secret swimming coves in true Swallows and Amazon’s style) . Or 6 miles away at Grizedale Forest Enterprise Centre, there are unique off road trials for bikers and walkers through wood and stone sculptures scattered amongst the trees.

We are ideally located close enough to the national park to enjoy its unparalled beauty and character but also within the Furness Peninsula which offers subtle diversions from the associated bustle of the more frequented Lakes hot spots. The medieval priory village of Cartmel, home to the most picturesque meets on the UK race calendar (May and August bank holidays), Haverthwaite Steam Engines and Lakeside Steam Cruises, Holker Hall and Gardens and the Victorian seaside town of Grange are all within 30 mins drive.

While culturally this area of Cumbria has not been left behind - try a literary tour to discover the inspiration Wordsworth, Potter and Ruskin found within the area or wander through the many castles (Muncaster and Sizergh) or stately homes (Holker, Blackwell - the arts and crafts house) with their gardens.

Why book a holiday home 200m from the nearest pub only to discover that sausage and chips is the best thing on the menu? We’ll guide you only to the places worth visiting. Who needs more than a trip to the local butcher for Broughton Beck beef, a barbecue with a breathtaking backdrop for an enchanting evening with friends?


* Coniston - 10 mins to the foot of the water, 30 mins to the village

* Cartmel - 15 mins to the medieval priory village

* Windermere - 12 mins to the southern tip of Windermere and Lakeside the departure point for Steam cruises

A warm welcome greeted us on arriving at Tehera in the shape of a fab bottle of red wine, delicious cake and local bread. The cottage was just perfect for us and is decorated and maintained to a very … More

"Peace & Quiet"

If you want a get away from it all holiday , this is it. You are miles from anywhere .Very friendly hosts that leave you alone, but are there if you need them . When you arrive there is a carrot cake a loaf of bread, and bottle of wine on the worktop and milk in the fridge. Every thing in the property is top notch . The bed is very comfy and the lounge is as well.

"Perfect location for cycling - as long as you dont mind a few hills"

The 1 bedroom cottage cottage we stayed in for the Easter weekend was perfect for us and extremely well equipped if you were self catering. It was very presentable, warm & clean. Directions to the property were clear and the property was ready for us when we arrived. The welcome pack was a lovely touch after a long journey. There was some where safe to store the bikes. Plenty of Pubs locally for an evening meal and the surrounding area is beautiful. We were lucky with the weather and got the opportunity to cycle every day. Will definitely be going back.

"Exceptions in everyway"

Great to find a fantastically remodelled home that exceeds the internet pictures. Positioning, although remote, was very central for the Lakes. Truly a pleasure to return to, especially the roaring open fire, when the wettest place in England lived up to its name!

Such special touches too, very thoughtful and really made such a difference in turning it from a holiday home to a home!

"A romantic break wihout the children."

Tethera was exactly what we were looking for. Luxurious but homely comfort to return to after days out walking in the lakes. It's remote....not for those who want to walk to the pub or shops but for those wanting to get away from the busyness of life I'd whole heartedly recommend it.

"lovely cottage"

A great homely cottage set in beautiful countryside. The interior was tastefully decorated and was of a high standard. Upon entering the property we were blown away with a welcome pack which included fresh baked bread and homemade cakes. Superb!!
I would definitely recommend this to a friend and would go and stay there again. The location was ideal for nearby Coniston and Ulverston. Keep up the good work Emma.
