  • "Well equipped cottage in a good location."

    Owners were nice, they came to say hello on arrival and to ask if we needed anything. Log fire was lovely and made it very cosy. Logs were not rationed. We did not have any trouble with WiFi. We would definitely go again

  • "The location of Corn Cottage is perfect."

    The walks from the doorstep are plentiful and fabulous. There is parking for one vehicle on the property, with more at the roadside. The cottage was presentable, however, the toaster didn’t work and the owners were notified and happy to replace, but we used the grill in the oven. The dishwasher worked once and the wash cycle was poor. Again, the owners were notified. This would explain the dirty teacups and pans that on our arrival we had to wash by hand. That said, lots of hot water and the owners kindly provided plenty of logs at no extra cost. I am sure that the issues we had can be easily addressed by the owners.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry that the cottage fell sort of our usual high standard on this occasion. You are right that the toaster had stopped working, I offered a replacement straight away but you preferred to use the grill. The dishwasher (a Zanussi domestic model) is working fine. I suspect you opened the door before it had completed the cycle and failed to press the reset button afterwards. Appliance instructions are in the house information folder. I did offer to come in and check the dishwasher as soon as you mentioned that there was an issue, but you refused. All guests are asked to leave the cottage clean and tidy for the next guests. We do check round as we are cleaning the cottage, but not thoroughly enough this time, and we apologise for that. Had you let me or my husband know at the time we would have sorted it at once, we live next door. We are disappointed to receive such poor feedback as we enjoyed chatting in the garden on more than one occasion, and you gave no clue that you were so dissatisfied. Property Owner

    Well enough equipped in kitchen. Somewhere indoors too hang wet coats would be useful though we were very lucky with the weather. Log burner was great as cottage was a little cold but this was mid October. Sofa was not the most comfortable Shower would have been nice if a bit hotter. Red Lion pub a short drive away did good food. We were able to do a lovely walk from the door to Beacon Tarn. Other walks a short drive away. Over all, we enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

  • "Owners and Neighbours were really lovely and friendly but not intrusive."

    Cottage was great as it had everything you would need. The weather was brill so most of the time was spent in the Summer house, which surprisingly has a USB port for charging your phone. I would love to return hopefully when a bit colder to experience the log burner. I can confirm that the Garden is not Dog Proof as mine escaped on several occasions. This cottage is ideal for a relaxing, peaceful vacation with lovely views and locals.

    Hello Linda, So glad you enjoyed the good weather and the summerhouse; and thank you for your kind words. As you say the garden is not dog proof, particularly for small or large dogs who can get over or under the fence, or possibly through the hedge. We have no plans to alter the fencing at this time.

    Hello Caitlin So pleased that you enjoyed your holiday in Corn Cottage and that you liked the bathroom which we updated during Storm Arwen when we had no power for 5 days so it all had to be done with hand tools and head torches! Much of the garden is dog proof for medium and large dogs, and those not too agile or adventurous! A small determined dog, or a good jumper would be able to get out. Kind regards Fran Property Owner

    The equipment level was spot on, maybe a radio would be a good addition as my phone didn’t work on the speaker provided. Storage, comfort of bed, shower/bathroom, heating, log fire were all excellent. We only self catered once during our four night stay, but all the necessary equipment was available to cater for that option. Loved the outside area. Location good for Coniston Lake and we enjoyed walks from the cottage. All in all a lovely place to stay. Thank you Andy and Fran.

    Hello Stuart Thank you for your kind feedback, especially your comment about a radio. It prompted me to check the TV options and I have established that the radio is available through the TV, so will alter the house information to reflect this.

The property

A cosy single-storey, semi-detached cottage, attached to the owner's 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, and can offer some excellent bike routes, and quiet rural roads. 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.

Note: Adults and infants only, no children over the age of 2.
