The property

A cosy single-storey, semi-detached cottage, attached to the owners’ home, located in the lovely hamlet of Water Yeat, a 10-minute walk from the shores of Coniston Water in the beautiful Lake District National Park.

Perfect as a romantic getaway, Corn Cottage offers guests comfortable accommodation in a wonderful location.

Inside this lovely cottage is a sitting room with dining area, wooden floor, exposed beams and a warming woodburning stove, along with a well-equipped kitchen, a bathroom and a double bedroom.

Outside you can take in the surrounding countryside from the south-facing patio with its romantic garden 'love-seat' or dine alfresco as you discuss the day’s events, and on a clear night, the deep darkness gives way to a star-laden sky.

With footpaths and bridleways to explore right from the doorstep, access to the fells is easy and Beacon Tarn and Coniston Water are within walking distance.

In the nearby village of Coniston you will find plenty of places to eat and shop, as well as things to see and do.

The National Trust Steam Yacht Gondola on Coniston Water is a true taste of a by-gone era from where you can relax and enjoy the stunning surrounding scenery, plus historic Brantwood House, home of the Victorian artist and social thinker John Ruskin, is close by and here the beautiful gardens and ancient woodland are a real treasure.

From Coniston the great outdoors awaits where you can enjoy fishing, kayaking, mountain climbing and gorge scrambling.

If you prefer biking, Grizedale Forest has some excellent mountain bike routes.

Situated in a peaceful location, this superb cottage is an ideal romantic retreat.

About the location

WATER YEAT, CONISTON WATER

Torver 3 miles; Coniston 6 miles; Ulverston 8 miles.

Water Yeat is a small hamlet in the Crake Valley, not far from the shores of Allan Tarn, featured in Arthur Ransome's book Swallows And Amazons as Octopus Lake, and a 10 minute walk from the shores of Coniston Water in the beautiful Lake District National Park. At the southern tip of Coniston Water, where Allan Tarn turns into the Crake River, lie the Hamlets of Water Yeat and Nibthwaite. Coniston Water, one of the most imposing and beautiful English Lakes, is situated to the west of Lake Windermere. To the northern end of the lake, the pretty village of Coniston is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the Lake District National Park and makes a superb base for touring Hawkshead, the Langdales, Ambleside and Windermere. Also in the area is Beacon Tarn, featured on Britain’s Favourite View and also reached when venturing along the Long Distance Path of Cumbria Way. Beacon Tarn is a wonderfully tranquil place and well worth a visit. Superb walking, mountain biking and climbing are available locally on Coniston Old Man, Tilberthwaite and Wetherlam, while Grizedale Forest offers lovely woodland trails. The quiet lake is ideal for dinghy sailing and canoeing, or a leisure cruise on the beautiful steam yacht 'Gondola'. Visit the Beatrix Potter Gallery at Hawkshead, Tarn Hows, one of the most visited beauty spots in the country, or Esthwaite Water, famous for its fishing.
