The property

Eskadale Green 5.3 miles.

Yew Tree Cottage lies in the small village of Ravenglass, around 10 miles from England's north-west coast and within the Lake District.

Set within the Eskdale Estate and within easy reach of both the wonderful peaks in one direction, and sandy beaches on the coast in the other, this property would suit a family who want the best of both worlds.

Take a moment to appreciate this cute white cottage before heading indoors and finding the first room on your left, the sitting room, where you can light the open fire in the winter months and spend your first evening planning where you want to explore on your Lakes trip.

Wake early and tiptoe into the snug on the opposite side of the hall with a coffee and a book you can't put down for some early morning time alone, with a woodburning stove featured in this room to warm your toes.

The kitchen/diner is where you can delight in making use of the range of appliances, and with the combined space it turns what might be a cooking chore into a chance for quality time together preparing a meal.

Look out of all the windows featuring pretty views of the hills outside and the distant mountains as you pass by and move upstairs to the bedrooms.

The master bedroom containing a double bed is bright and airy, and it benefits from an en-suite shower room for your added luxury.

The other two bedrooms comprise of a twin room and a single sofa bed room, ideal for children or extra guests, allowing for various party types, served by the well-presented bathroom containing a bath with hand-held shower attachment.

Outside you can find both a lawned area and a patio with furniture, great for getting outside and making the most of any sunshine that comes your way.

Begin your exploration with a trip on the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway for a scenic ride on their historic steam train.

The Lake District can provide you with many opportunities to try activities you haven't done before, like giving canoeing or paddle-boarding a go at West Lakes Adventure where they can provide you will all the gear and kit you will need to enjoy a day of firsts!

Yew Tree Cottage is a lovely property from which you can embark on your Lakes adventure.

About the location


Coniston 10 miles.

The small village of Eskdale Green sits amongst beautiful Lakeland countryside and consists of a scattering of cottages, some farm dwellings and a number of outstanding traditional English pubs serving good food. An area relatively unknown to many Lakeland visitors, this great location boasts a skyline dominated by the towering peaks of Scafell - England's highest peak, as well as Great Gable, Hard Knott, Harter Fell and Muncaster Fell, whilst the nearby stunning valleys of Eskdale, Wasdale, Ennerdale and Dunnerdale provide breathtaking and ever-changing scenery to be enjoyed throughout the year. The valley is notable as being one of few major valleys in the Lake District not to have its own lake, although several tarns are perched above the valley sides. Local attractions include Muncaster Castle, the World Owl Centre and the Ravenglass to Eskdale miniature railway, one of the most beautiful train journeys imaginable. With both beautiful Wastwater - the deepest lake in the country and St Olaf's - the smallest church, amongst the many well known landmarks in this awe inspiring and beautiful area also within easy reach, this stunning location will have visitors returning time and time again.
