  • "This our 3rd stay in this beautiful cottage, we feel so at home , especially my husband who lived here for 6 years in the 70’s with his family."

    The facilities are just right. Perhaps a we’ll behaved dog would be nice but not necessary. Looking forward to our next visit.

  • "We arrived late at night on friday night tired from a lovely 4 hour journey and was welcomed by an extremely well kept cottage which was so nice to see when youve just driven the length of the country!"

    the Kitchen is amazing and definitely a key point of the property, the rooms were all super clean and well kept and the facilities were spot on, couldnt fault the place at all, although it rained all the way through our stay it was such a lovely place to come back to and sit and warm up by the fire! (the snug chair is also a good bonus) lots of space for plenty of people and will definitely come back again!

    Unable as not working. The main bathroom toilet had issues flushing. We phoned these matters in but heard absolutely nothing back. Disappointed.

The property

Eskadale Green 5.3 miles.

A quiet village in the Lake District called Ravenglass brings you this quaint holiday home, Yew Tree Cottage, set amongst beautiful countryside with views from most of the property windows looking out to the peaks in the distance.

Thanks to its three bedrooms sleeping five, this house would be ideal for a medium-sized family, or a group of avid walking friends ready for their next outing.

Admire the bright white property from the outside and take in your peaceful surroundings before stepping in, kick off your boots and find the first room to your left, the sitting room.

Keeping its authentic character with the open fire set below the wooden mantelpiece, it contains a TV and sofas for your comfort on a quiet evening.

Across the hall is the snug, this one featuring a woodburning stove, and leading into the stylish kitchen/diner.

Continuing with its flagstone floor, this space is great for coming together, and if it's a lovely day then take the conversation outside into the courtyard.

Pass back through the property admiring the stunning views out of the windows of the nearby woodland and rolling hill, and head upstairs to discover the bedrooms.

The master bedroom grants you a double bed, ample storage in the wardrobe and drawers and even your very own en-suite shower room.

Carry on exploring and find the other two rooms; a single sofa bed and a twin, all completed to an excellent degree with light and airy decor.

Serving these rooms is the sparkling family bathroom which consists of a bath with hand-held shower attachment, basin and WC, so you can make sure the little ones get a bath before bedtime.

With pretty gardens on either side of the property - a patio and lawns - you can take a trip to the closest shop in Eskdale Green for supplies and then spend a sunny day cooking summer food and enjoying refreshing cold drinks.

The Lake District can provide you with endless activities to keep you busy and entertained, most commonly being thousands of walking routes and paths.

Fairly nearby to Yew Tree Cottage is the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike, so take a rare opportunity and challenge yourself by following one of the walking routes up this magnificent peak, with path ranging from easier to higher difficulty depending on experience.

Your location in Ravenglass means you only have to travel just over 10 miles before reaching England's north-west coast, why not visit Seascale?

This attractive seaside resort retains much of its Victorian charm that made it so popular.

Whatever you decide to take part in during your visit to Yew Tree Cottage, you will be delighted with the tranquil location and fine decoration.

About the location


Coniston 10 miles.

The small village of Eskdale Green sits amongst beautiful Lakeland countryside and consists of a scattering of cottages, some farm dwellings and a number of outstanding traditional English pubs serving good food. An area relatively unknown to many Lakeland visitors, this great location boasts a skyline dominated by the towering peaks of Scafell - England's highest peak, as well as Great Gable, Hard Knott, Harter Fell and Muncaster Fell, whilst the nearby stunning valleys of Eskdale, Wasdale, Ennerdale and Dunnerdale provide breathtaking and ever-changing scenery to be enjoyed throughout the year. The valley is notable as being one of few major valleys in the Lake District not to have its own lake, although several tarns are perched above the valley sides. Local attractions include Muncaster Castle, the World Owl Centre and the Ravenglass to Eskdale miniature railway, one of the most beautiful train journeys imaginable. With both beautiful Wastwater - the deepest lake in the country and St Olaf's - the smallest church, amongst the many well known landmarks in this awe inspiring and beautiful area also within easy reach, this stunning location will have visitors returning time and time again.
