  • "Absolutely beautiful place."

    Great and central . Great for the dog. The best holiday we have had in this country. The hot tub takes a while to heat up so need a good few hours before you get into it but the next day its much easier . Comfy bed , everything you need and the little gift basket was a great touch . Thank you

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Yew Tree."

    Everything was thought of down to the minute detail. The facilities were superb! We loved the personal touch of the hamper (even though we left the bottle of fizz unintentionally in the fridge, this wasn’t us being rude!) and the fudge was to die for! If we were to be really picky, maybe a cover over the hot tub or gazebo, sheltering you from the rain would be ideal, although not sure if that would work with the chimney! We did manage without and still had a relaxing time in the hot tub. Thank you so much for making our stay enjoyable, we will def be back for some R&R!

    Hello Kaye, Thank you for your feedback, we’re happy to hear you thoroughly enjoyed your stay. Obviously everyone has their own ideas how to improve a place, but we thought long and hard about how we wanted the cabins to be. We decided we wanted them as open to the stars and the countryside views as possible. We look forward to welcoming you back. All the best, Kate. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely lovely cabin in a beautiful place."

    It was so quiet and peaceful, I would 100% recommend and will definitely be booking again! My only advice would be if you want to use the hot tub the day you get there get it started ASAP as it took about 2 hours to heat initially.

  • "The place was lovely."

    The log cabin wqs really nice inside had everything but a kettle which we found rather funny so we had to use a pan. It was vert clean and tidy. The hot tub was nice too.

    Hello Jessica, Bless you, there’s a boiling hot water tap so no need to use a pan! (There is information in the guest directory telling guests this, in case they haven’t come across one before.) Next time if you think some thing is missing, just give the owner a ring and they should be able to help. Glad you enjoyed your stay. All the best, Kate Property Owner

  • "Lovely place with a great view."

    Very modern and spacious. We enjoyed our stay but there was a few things which made us feel uncomfortable. The bedding didn’t seem clean. There was a stain on top of the duvet , an eyelash extension on top of one of the pillows and also a stain on the inside of the bedding. The memory foam pillows were too hard for us but this is personal preference. The plates and cutlery were also dirty and the hot tub water was dirty.

    Hello Olivia, Glad you enjoyed your two night stay. I’m sorry to hear you thought some things weren’t clean. If you’d said something at the time I would have been happy to come and have a look and if needs be have changed things for you. It’s always better to say something at the time because you can’t rectify something once a guest has left. There are two pillows provided one is memory foam and the other is sheep’s wool so softer. Again if you’d got in touch I could have brought you a different pillow. All the best, Kate. Property Owner

    Really clean and equipped with all you need.The log fire hot tub takes a bit of warming but well worth it just to chill in. Definitely will be returning.

About the location


Keswick 11 miles; Penrith 6 miles.

Ullswater is generally considered to encompass three major villages. This includes Glenridding at the south and Pooley Bridge at the north. The second largest lake, at approximately 7.5 miles wide, Ullswater is often regarded as the most beautiful lake in the district. There is dramatic mountain scenery to the south, as well as the gentle hills of the north. This region is popular among walkers, climbers and cyclists of all levels of ability. There are various water sports for all abilities too and lots of family activities. Along with historical sites of interest, Ullswater has a strong nautical history, having been a popular sailing destination for centuries. There are marinas placed all around the lake. Plus a wide range of superb eateries and shops, sure to delight!
Also, on the west side of the lake is the beautiful Aira Force Waterfall. It is one of the National Park’s most popular natural tourist attractions. Glenridding is a particularly popular tourist attraction with mountain walkers. They visit the village to scale England’s third highest peak, Helvellyn.
