About the home
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.

The Cumbria/Lake District 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......................................
The Coniston area
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?

Great holiday rental, the cottage is well equipped and it was such a relaxing place to escape to. Emma (the owner) was very kind and helpful.
30 Apr 2012
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.
