  • "The garden would have been perfect if it had been totally secure for dogs."

    Our dogs are small so could get under the fencing. Lounge would have been perfect if one comfortable chair was provided in addition to the settee.

    Other than that a lovely cottage with lots of character, in a great location

  • "We had a lovely stay in this delightful cottage."

    The location is idyllic and we loved we could walk from the cottage. The owners provided a file of walks to choose from in a handy folder. They live next door and were helpful but unobtrusive. We were blessed with beautiful weather which was a bonus. We would love to return.

  • "Well presented homely feel to well equippedcottage, we had a very relaxing stay."

    Liked the two private quiet sitting areas. Super location with extra bonus of being able to walk dog on fells 2 mins from front door. Very quiet. Stunning scenery. Easy and hard walks from door. Think our 20 month old collie loved it even more than us! Really enjoyed the whole week and apart from hotspots was quiet on the little side roads and places like Langdales - and do the drive over Hardknott if you dare! Corn Cottage is a gem!

  • "We loved the cottage, lovely views from every window."

    Inside was gorgeous and there was a generous supply of logs and kindling included for the woodburner which we enjoyed lighting in the evening. Outside was a lovely little garden with the added bonus of a summerhouse to sit in. Owners were welcoming and on hand if needed. An absolutely perfect place to stay.

  • "Corn cottage was delightful."

    We really enjoyed the log burner and the cosy atmosphere. The under floor heating in the bathroom was most welcome too. Another great feature of the cottage is its proximity to great walks straight from the front door which was most useful to us as dog owners. Also, we were really grateful for the kind attention of the owners.

Location was quiet and peaceful and the summer house in the garden was wonderful.

But we would be more than happy to return as it was a lovely week in a lovely cottage.

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


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.
