Set in the heart of Southern Lakeland, this beautiful cottage dates from the C17th and has been very much a feature of local life and landscape.

It became a natural meeting point for folk scattered over the hills and was once used as a Quaker meeting house.

I am very dissappointed to hear that you had such important problems with our cottage and didn't take the opportunity to say something when asked if everything was ok when you arrived so that we could have rectified them. If the problems were as bad as you make out, we had another cottage available at the time which you could have used.
The cottage is thoroughly cleaned after every booking and you are visited by our caretaker on the evening of your arrival or the morning after to check everything is fine. Regarding the locked gate. The garden is shared between our cottages and as it is across the lane and there are other cottages up the lane, we find this is the best way that it is kept private for our cottages use only.
My wife and myself take pride in presenting Old Yew Tree Cottage at its best and it is very upsetting to receive such a scathing review.
I have spoken to the previous guests and the follow on guests and both have no complaints at all. Your comments have been noted and if we can find ways to improve our guests stay then of course we will do our best.
