Set in the Southern Lakeland the cottage is over 400 years old and built in traditional Lakeland stone with walls up to 3 feet thick. The lounge features an inviting electric log stove. A study of the following pages will give you an idea of the superior quality of the accommodation.

Old Yew Tree Cottage has been welcoming people for centuries.Come and see why.

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 stands on the old packhorse route over the fells and was for many years part of the local toll house - a stopping point for travellers making their way to the high peaks. It became a natural meeting point for folk scattered over the hills and was once used as a Quaker meeting house.

“Perfectly formed, all needs met”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2016

This cottage was exactly as described. We were two people staying for five days. The cottage was clean, and actually, incredibly good value. Our hosts were so welcoming, gave us all the info we needed, and were incredibly warm and friendly - even did our laundry!! They clearly are very experienced at hosting. We were stunned with their kindness. The cottage gives you a real taste of Lakes living. Easy base to explore all areas (Coniston is the nearest major area, with many outdoor activities there). We were left treats upon arrival. As experienced Lakes visitors, this is one of the best.

“Lakes stay.”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2016

Great little get away. Great for our first visit to the lakes. Having no wifi/no signal for mobile data added to the experience. Me and my other half had time to do things together and not have distractions from the internet/work e.c.t. Owners helpful. Nice drives and views.
