Coal Yeat Cottage
Barn | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
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.

Coal Yeat Cottages are one of three accommodation units within the estate. However, privacy for both permanent residents and holidaymakers alike is paramount and well planned!
The Cumbria/Lake District
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.
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
*Bird Watching *Clay Pigeon Shooting *Fishing *Hot Air Ballooning *Golf *Horse Riding *Low Level Rambling

"Home from home"
The cottage was perfect.
I wanted to stay somewhere in luxury. The cottage was well furnished, comfortable and had wifi, Sky TV, DVD player, flat screen TV, Ipod docks in the living room and bedrooms. (And board games). The showers were good. My favourite thing about Yan was the ensuite bathroom (bath tub and shower) to one of the double bedrooms.
The kitchen had plenty of crockery, glasses, cookware, baking trays, pots and pans - all the things you would normally have in your home.
Other great things about the cottage, is the location. It's remote but not so far from places to visit like Coniston, Kendal and Windermere - or places to eat. There were plenty of leaflets and information about where to go and things to do (kept in a binder in the living room).
What I found really personal was that there were tea, coffee, sugar, milk, butter, bread and cake waiting for us on our arrival. Emma also provided a cleaning box with cleaning things and cleaning products. She thought of everything. Before our arrival, we were sent detailed information about how to get there and what we can expect on our arrival.

"Perfect for peace and quite"
The directions that you are given are spot on so don't waiver from them. We were going to take a low sports car but were advised not to and that was probably a wise decision. The owners were very helpful and the accommodation was perfect. Lovely little touches with a welcoming local made cake and a bottle of wine.. We stayed with my two sons who are 22 and 26 and they really enjoyed the local area. I will say I was disappointed with the fishing pond which needs the vegetation dragging out of it. Great place to stay and will go back(without rods).

"What a magical place"
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.

"Tan cottage - exceptional"
As far as we could see, Emma has thought of every single need you could have on holiday in a cottage. It was very cosy and comfortable, and the kitchen was extremely well equipped, so that I could have put on a dinner party! Added to that the views from the windows were superb, and the welcome pack was delicious and generous.

"Luxurious home from home in amazing surroundings"
Well what can i say about Coal Yeat? Amazing, fabulous, luxurious..... the list goes on.
From advice to booking and staying Emma was a tremendous help and was very friendly, even allowing us to check in early on the day.
The cottage is set in the most tranquil area with nothing but green fields and animals to gaze upon, it was so peaceful and relaxing, at night you could have heard a pin drop.
On arrival we were greeted with homemade ginger bread, fresh bread and a bottle of wine, such personal touches, and the cottage itself has everything you could need plus is very tastefully decorated. My son(8) loved the pigs outside and Emmas dog and we had some pleasant walks through the neighboring fields.
I don't think anything could have been added to our long weekend, i just wished we could have stayed longer!
