i refurbished this cottage, then subsequently sold it to new owners, they then requested i act as the agent for their bookings, which i was only to pleased to do so, as yanway is a lovely quaint and unique cottage.

this cottage dates back to the 15th century and is a very romantic place to stay. it sits on a bridle path and as you open the front door and walk down the path the views of the valley are incredible. troutbeck istelf is renowned for its local walks, and as there is very little traffic, therefore it makes it a perfect great place for dog walking.

yanway has a very quaint cottage garden which is just a skip over the bridle path, it features a lovely slate patio and a lawned area for children to play. Troutbeck is a conservation area and is a very peaceful place to stay and in my opinion unique to the rest of the lakes. Troutbeck has 2 pubs within walking distance of the cottage and both serve excellent food and the plus is, they allow dogs.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful find lovely warm a cosy, had everything you needed for our stay, you bring things that you need over and above that you use daily. Rooms where comfortable, and our dog was more than happy. Will certainly return to the cottage soon. The neighbour was really friendly too, you just have to talk to people and respect their wishes.

Great place, great area.

  • 4 of 5
The Troutbeck valley scenary was absolutely beautiful as you drive from the main road through the country lanes towards the cottage.
There is plenty of room for parking for 1 car (all sizes) and found it easy to manouver in and out. I found it easier to go in forwards and reverse back out.
The cottage itself was great. Well furnished throughout.
Plenty of room for me, my partner and her elderly mother.
It was a bit chilly all week when we were there, so used the storage heaters which were great. Didn't end up lighting the log fire though.
Great kitchen/diner and bathroom (liked the underfloor heating).
The living room was cozy and had plenty of room.
The bedrooms could be a bit small if you are used to big bedrooms at home. But they were perfectly sized for us. Room for double beds and all our clothes (although there isn't space in one of the rooms to get in both sides of the bed).
It is a 16th century cottage so you have to expect that and make allowances for it.

In terms of what was supplied in the cottage, there was no soap for the kitchen or bathroom and not enough toilet roll for the week. So bring your own or buy when there.
The batteries had run out in the supplied torch with no spares in the draw, but we brought our own anyway so didn't bother buying. Be prepared just in case.
Everything else you could possibly need was supplied.

The garden was really nice. Although the weather wasn't ideal for taking lots of advantage of it, I spent an hour every morning enjoying the peace. I disturbed 1 or 2 rabbits most mornings eating the fruit that had fallen from the trees.

The location is fantastic. Not far from Ambleside and Winderemere but far enough to not fell like it was too touristy.
2 pubs are in walking distance. The Mortal Man (5 min walk) and The Queens Head (10 minutes further on)
Both serve great food and ales.
Atelier in Ambleside was a great restaurant we tried.

To sum up, I would definitely recommend staying here for the cottage and the location.

Disappointing

  • 2 of 5
The cottage was disappointing, so we (from the Netherlands, regular Lake District visitors) diecided to leave on Sunday already.
Firstly the cottage was not well cleaned, especially some of the kitchen equipment (eg the cooker hood) was very greasy and sticky). Secondly, some of the equipment did not function properly: The cooker hood made a lot of (rattling) noise, but that was the only thing it did, The dishwasher did not dry properly, the washing machine dryer got very hot, but did not dry, the CD player did not open and there was no wifi available (which is promised on the website). Finally the cottage felt a bit cramped (but we were more or less aware of that when we booked it).

Owner's Response: this client sent me a text after they had left the cottage, i then personally checked the cottage for cleaning and found it to be very clean, my cleaner has been with me for 3 years now and had no complaints. the equipment was working it just needed the client to read the instructions, instead of trying to guess. the cottage dates back to 1609, and is located in a conservation area which is why it is so quaint and lovely, so to expect a large spacious cottage is wishful thinking, and to be honest many cottages that are 2 bed in south lakes are generally smaller in size. I have stated on all my advertising and included in the guestbook that i appreciate clients letting me know if they are not happy so i can do my best to sort out whatever the problem may be, after they have left is not very helpful!

Great little cottage

  • 4 of 5
Just returned from a fab little stay at Yanway Cottage. The cottage is lovely, decor is very tasteful and it's in a stunning location. The cottage had everything we needed and the added extra of a full sky tv package! The parking is a little restrictive but it is manageable, we have a large car and after a few try's were able to get in and out fine. The garden area opposite the cottage is a great sunny spot, unfortunately we didn't have great weather so couldn't make the most of this but would be great for al fresco dining in the summer. The cottage was clean, warm and cosy with very comfortable beds and great views. We ate at both the Mortal Man and the Queens Head, both nice pubs, good food and easily walkable from the cottage. Would have liked to have stayed longer.

A long weekend not long enough

  • 5 of 5
This is wonderful cottage, thoughtfully and beautifully decorated, also well equipped. Really cosy and a great place to spend time. Also in a great location - we came to mountain bike and there are several epic/classic Lakes routes that you can ride from the door; great bonus. We aim to be back!
