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.

About this location

The Duddon Valley 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.


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

"Good, but a little misleading"

We booked Yan and Tyan cottages for a party of 10 adults, one small child and 3 dogs in August. Booking was simple and all contact with the owners was immediate and straightforward prior to arrival. … More

Hello, I am so sorry hear you were disappointed with certain aspects of your stay. I would like to think that all our guests had a lovely experience when staying at Coal Yeat; however I am a realist and know that this may not always be the case. We have taken this review very seriously and endeavour to learn and improve from this and indeed all feed back whether that be good or bad (although thankfully it appears the vast majority of our guests thoroughly enjoy what Coal Yeat offers). This is the first negative review we have encountered and it has really made me think.
Firstly and for me the most disappointing, was that our house guests and dogs disrupted your stay. I can only apologise for the terrible way our dog Quiver, “welcomed your dog”. She is normally in her kennel when guests are present as she does get a little jealous. Unfortunately, we were also 'dog sitting' for my brother, so had two more dogs than is the norm at Coal Yeat. I am so sorry my brother's Great Dane Saffie upset you. If only you had mentioned your fear of her I would have kept her inside. As soon as I learnt of your dislike of her, I kept her locked away. Upon speaking with you I can understand why you would write about the dogs and again I can only apologise.

We are very receptive to guests and will do anything to ensure you have a great time. I believe my husband asked if our party in the games room would bother you, it was felt you didn't mind. If only you expressed any doubt we would have kept ourselves tucked away. It was an unusual week and we did have more than one set of house guests as we were tied to Coal Yeat due to the dog sitting. In hindsight we should have kept ourselves more to ourselves, especially as you had booked both properties.

I wish that I could wave a magic wand and ask guests to let us know what they are looking for / not looking for when they book. We know how important being happy in accommodation is, so if people ask about our proximity to Yan and Tyan, I never fabricate the truth. A lot of people appreciate the fact we are 'around' and I always try to be professional and unobtrusive. Normally we can read guest's 'vibe' and are more than happy to leave guests to their own devices, but for those who want to chat and learn more about Coal Yeat and the area, we are happy to embrace guest. Indeed we have many of our returnees many who are now friends.

I can now understand that our own guests impacted on your stay. I can only apologise and ensure that this is not the norm. Also, I appreciate you would not want to appear to 'whinge', but a quiet word would have ensured exclusivity was resumed.

Upon departure you alerted me that the batteries had gone and that the washing machine was not working, again I am only on site and could have rectified these immediately.

As mentioned, this review has upset me as I give 100% in providing a quality cottages and service, but I am glad that you did enjoy your stay, despite the points raised. I thank you for all your comments as all feedback is valid, and this has certainly made us think and take action.

"Amazing place"

Could not recommend this place more - Yan Cottage is lovely, the views are amazing, it's way out in the hills so it's nice and quiet, the showers are great, the beds are comfy... do I need to go on?! Having a few goodies waiting for us when we arrived was very much appreciated (none of them lasted long!). One really nice touch is having a small cupboard of spices, oil etc. all free to use (just replace anything you finish!), so you don't need to bring loads of stuff with you if you want to cook properly. We'll be back!

"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).
