  • "The listing proved spot-on; our expectations were met without a hitch."

    Nestled in a serene location, we adored the farm's delightful array of animals – from emus and peacocks to turkeys, donkeys, goats, sheep, and even a lively cockerel! The thoughtful welcome treats, including ones for our four-legged friends, were a lovely touch. Cooking was a breeze with well-equipped amenities, thanks to Kate's meticulous attention to detail. Our stay was truly delightful.

    Thank you for your kind words Joanne - so good to hear that you had everything you needed to enjoy your stay (even with summer & winter in 2 days!) Glad there was plenty of space for the boys to play rugby in the field too Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic stay at Yew Beck Cottage and can’t wait to return!"

    The owner was close by and very helpful if needed but also very much left you to enjoy your stay. Perfect spot to relax and felt like a real escape. The beds were comfy, showers were fab and also a bonus of black out curtains! Living area had everything and more and the log burner too! We all enjoyed our stay very much and our little boys didn’t want to leave!

    Ahh thank you Sam - really pleased that you all enjoyed your stay. Well done to your two boys who led you a mile over the moorland behind the cottage to the Manor pub at Oxen Park (& back!). Active little legs! Property Owner

  • "We had the most fabulous, relaxing time at Yew Beck."

    It is the perfect rural retreat to unwind and escape too. It really is a special place nestled in peaceful and beautiful surroundings. The cottage has everything you need, just bring along your food and drinks. Kate was the best hostess, so friendly and always on hand if we needed her. We loved waking up to the sound of all the animals around us and watching them from the balcony (especially Guiness THE cutest little patterdale who we could have happily have sneaked home with us.) We can’t wait to return later on in the year :)

    Kelly & Ash - Thanks for coming to stay - & dog sitting Guinness! So pleased to hear you enjoyed your break & your own beautiful dogs had fun too. Looking forward to seeing you again soon Kate x Property Owner

The property

Nestled in the Lake District's rolling countryside, Yew Beck is a delightful, reverse-level, barn conversion perfect for a family getaway!

Boasting two beautifully appointed bedrooms and a delightful open-plan living space with far-reaching views across the countryside, Yew Beck promises an unforgettable retreat.

After venturing up the country lane to reach the property, utilise the private parking and cross the threshold to begin your break.

The owner lives in the farmhouse next door & has a small holding with 2 donkeys, sheep, 3 emus, turkeys, peacocks, guinea fowl & plenty of chickens - you are welcome to have their fresh eggs for your breakfast!

Kick off your shoes and head straight up the stairs to unwind in front of the Smart TV and the warming glow of the woodburning stove; here you can watch on as one of your group cooks up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen.

Dine together around the spacious table before settling in for a night in front of the TV or admiring the spectacular sunset across Bethecar Moor and countryside from the Juliet balcony.

When the evening draws to a close head back downstairs to catch up on your rest in either the king-size or twin bedroom; both boast handy en-suite shower rooms so you can freshen up ahead of your next adventure.

In the morning venture out from Yew Beck to explore Bethecar Moor directly on the doorstep - 1361 acres of open fell rising to a height of 300 metres offering views of Morecambe Bay & Coniston Old Man.

For walking & mountain biking, Grizedale Forest is just over 10 mins/ 4 miles away for mountain biking, (including bike hire).

Walking, cafe & Go Ape.

Challenge yourself by summiting fells such as The Old Man of Coniston and Claife Heights.

If you'd rather take to the water then you're in luck; Coniston Water and Lake Windermere are nearby, providing cruises and watersports such as kayaking and paddleboarding.

Don't miss out on the chance to explore Hawkshead - 20 mins / 7 miles away, described as the prettiest village in the Lake District with its Quaint streets, village squares, shops, cafes, pubs & restaurants, also the village of Windermere where you can uncover The World of Beatrix Potter, Holehird Gardens and Windermere Jetty Museum.

Ulverston is also within reach, head into town for an evening away from the kitchen, visit the Sir John Barrow Monument or begin exploring the coast!

All this and more awaits on your next trip to Yew Beck in the Lake District!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
