Local Amienties: We are situated on the southern fringe of the Lake District National Park in pure isolation betwixt the festival town of Ulverston and the village of Lowick within the Crake valley. Less than three miles in one direction finds all the amenities of the popular market town of Ulverston with its wide choice of eclectic shops, inns and restaurants, a championship golf course, sports centre with swimming pool and gym. Two miles the other finds the Crake Valley winding from the foot of Coniston Water through Lowick with it‘s 14th century coaching inn, old Lakeland working bobbin villages, fertile fields and woodland until it reaches the shores of Morecambe bay.
Ideal for walkers, bikers and escapees this is rural Cumbria at it’s peak. Coniston Water 4 miles and Lake Windermere 6 miles are close enough for a quick dip (we’ll let you into the locals secrets and you’ll discover secret swimming coves in true Swallows and Amazon’s style), Grizedale Forest Enterprise Centre, 6miles offers unique off road trials for bikers and walkers through wood and stone sculptures scattered amongst the trees.
We are ideally located close enough to the national park to enjoy its unparalled beauty and character but also within the Furness Peninsula which offers subtle diversions from the associated bustle of the more frequented Lakes hot spots.

Our second visit - a very special place with a very special welcome. a pleasure to stay here and our dog loves it - a very good standard of cleanliness and excellent customer service. Accurate description - we love tyan as we have a lovely view also and balcony at home and this feels like a home from home.
Great base for walks and go for a drive and explore the surrounding area. We like the shops in Ulverston, the lovely drive to Coniston, Cartmel and Holker Hall to name a few places we have been. There are so many other places we have not visited - we will have to return!!!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay but am reluctant to give glowing review in case everyone else books my new best holiday cottage! Seriously - we will be back as we had a fantastic time. Emma is the perfect host providing a great welcome pack, useful local information, a well equipped cottage and the space and peace to enjoy it! Our dog had the best ever time running up and down the fields and rolling down the hills like a mad cheese!
We arrived at Coal Yeat having driven way off the main roads and were greeted by host/owner Emma with a warm welcome plus eggs from the hens, homemade cakes and a bottle of vino :-)
The property we stayed in was called Yan and slept 6 of us comfortably. It is beautifully decorated, clean and very well stocked with Denby crockery, store cuboard goods, and we even got to test the BBQ in the glorious sunshine over the weekend break.
Emma helped us with info for day trips inc boat timetables, routes to restaurants and places to park - really practical local advice that made our outings a doddle!
In summary, we can't wait to return with or without kids and definitely with our bikes and walking boots.
Gorgeous cottage. We all had a fab time. The cottage & the surrounding area is so relaxing with fantastic views. Emma & her family made us feel so welcome. The lovely welcome pack was a nice gesture. Would highly recommend staying in this delightful cottage. Hope to return very soon.
Already before our stay, Emma was wonderful in answering questions and providing information. We were very excited to stay at Tyan and were not disappointed at all. We found the place very easily due to the clear instructions. We were being welcomed by the guinea fowls (we instantly loved those). Then up in Tyan we found lovely treats (even a home baked cake!). The house itself is truly luxurious. One of those places you just drop your bag and start your vacation. Everything is literally there. The place is very light and the view is magnificent! We chose Lake District for the walks and Coal Yeat is a great place for that. We enjoyed the walks at Grizedale most, mainly because we could let the dogs walk free. Do ask Emma about her favorite walks, that is how we got to Beacon Tarn, a hidden lake and so very beautiful. So we did walks during the day, then dinners at 'home' in the evening. For us this was perfect and we can highly recommend Coal Yeat and Tyan. But also for those wanting to visit the many villages, do lake cruises, relax, visit historic sites etc etc. Coal Yeat is the perfect stay for all of those purposes. And as for the weather... People asked us why we would choose to go to Lake District for our vacation. Well, even with cloudy weather, the sun still shines at Tyan! We had a fantastic time, thank you Emma and family!
What a delightful property and gorgeous landscape for our first visit to the Lake District. We had a wonderful time exploring the area - it's such an ideal location to to tour from.
The cottage has everything you could need and is very clean and modern with so many thoughtful touches - the welcome gifts were perfect and the cottage couldn't be better.
We are already enthusiastically recommending this place to all our friends back home.
Coal Yeat Cottages are so captivating, so unique you won’t want to venture too far! The 'Cumbrian Way' passes within metres of the door and unlimited local walks are available direct from Coal Yeat. You need not leave the estate to witness 360 degree views spanning out over Ulverston and Morecambe Bay (you can see Blackpool Tower on a good day), round over Gawthwaite Common (bikers dream), towards the Western Lakes and back to the familiar yet always stunning Coniston Fells. Alternatively simply explore the 1200 acres of Lowick Common with its hidden tarns, abundant wildlife and panoramic views from the top of the Beacon.
