Coal Yeat Cottage
About the home
Coal Yeat Cottages are so captivating, so unique you won’t want to venture too far! The "Cumbrian Way" passes within metres of the door and unlimited local walks are available direct from Coal Yeat. 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 familiar yet always 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 on the local well stocked carp pool (additional charge).
If your wish is luxury lakes without the tourists, chic to champion over chintz, local knowledge without the insularity, friendliness without over familiarity then all will be fulfilled at Coal Yeat.
Imaginatively arranged using contemporary open plan design Coal Yeat Cottages are ideal for families or couples holidaying together, or if both utilised together they offer a unique group environment. The highlight for both 'Yan' and 'Tyan' is the breathtaking outlook over the much loved Lakeland fells.

The Cumbria/Lake District region
The Lake District, world renowned for it’s stunning scenery, rugged mountains and inspirational backdrops needs little introduction. However, with thousands of visitors each year 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.
The Coniston / Broughton Beck 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 three 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), Grizedale Forest Enterprise Centre, 6miles offers 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
* Langdales - 35 mins and you are deep into the mountains
* Climbing *Kayaking *High mountain walking *Windsurfing *Sailing *Mountain Biking
*Scrambling *Caving *4x4 Driving *Quad Biking *Paint Balling *Tandem Sky Diving

Great place to crash and base yourself for a break in the lakes. Do as little or as much as you like, walking in superb, close to villages and pubs. We stayed with two kids and had a blast! Thanks... more

We stayed in Tyan for a 3 day break. We were pleasantly surprised at how modern and cosy the cottage was. It was really like a home from home. It is in a peaceful location with amazing views, perfect... more

What a magical place! We had no idea such a lovely place could be found so close to Ulverston, even though we've been there so many times..
So we had a great break, seeing family, drove Kirkstone Pass (not to be missed) and the steamer down Windermere but the highlight was generally chilling out in absolutely beautiful surroundings, inside and outside.
The cottage is really super - obviously a lot of love has gone into the whole site. We hope Emma and Graham have great success for many years to come and of course we'll be recommending you to all our friends.
