    Beautiful setting, lovely accommodation , really peaceful and the local pubs and food amazing, would definitely come back

    Thank you for your feedback. We also love the local pubs, especially the Farmer’s Arms community run pub at Lowick Green. Great beers and the wood fired pizza on a Thursday night is not to be missed. Property Owner

    Welcome biscuits and dog treats were appreciated. Site was well maintained and very quiet with lakeside walk nearby. Good storage space in bedroom and very comfortable bed. Chalet had everything we needed for our stay. We hope to return.

  • "We stayed at 8 Woodlands."

    There was space for one car towards the front of the lodge due to leaving space for the lodge to the back of 8 Woodlands. Enough space though so all was ok. The lodge had everything in terms of cutlery, plates, pans, trays and bin bags. Was a very nice touch to have some coffee, tea and milk sachets on arrival along with washing up liquid, tea towel and toilet roll. Plenty of towels were provided for our weeks stay. We were impressed with the lodge itself and the grounds. Close to the lake for a morning stroll with the dog which was just over the main road at the bottom. Everything else was a driveable distance, 15 mins to Coniston, 30 mins to Bowness or Ambleside. The only downfall was the main bed. One side dipped making it uncomfortable to the point of feeling you were to fall out of bed when turning over. Wasn't great for the back really however I survived and made do. All in all loved our holiday and would stay again but a different lodge due to the bed

    Thank you for your comments. Sorry that you found the bed uncomfortable, we have since replaced the bed base which we found a fault with, and hope that you will visit again. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful stay at 8 woodlands ."

    The cabin was just right for 3adults. The only thing I would mention was the sign to the cabin . You could do with a light over it and also your name at the gate.

  • "The property was of a good standard and met a lot of our requirements."

    However, when it rained overnight, there was a significant constant drip onto the main bedroom window sill, probably due to the guttering. I also think that the mattress of the bed was probably a bit shot it was very soft and when getting onto the bed significant spring flexing. As an improvement option a corner settee for 4 people would be better rather than the 3 seater sofa & separate chair. In summary, we enjoyed our stay and would probably return, as the location was perfect for a peaceful holiday. A few tweaks would improve the lodge.

    Thank you for your feedback, we have cleaned the guttering and have replaced the bed base which we found a fault with. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful setting and surroundings and so peaceful."

    My children 6 and 9 (and the pup) had the best time, so much so they didn’t want to come home. The lodge was very clean, well kept and you had everything you needed to hand. The decor was lovely and the beds were extremely comfortable. We are planning to come back next year. Thank you for a great stay!

    Thanks for the great feedback, glad you had a great time. Property Owner

About the location


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.
