|Why would you need to go anywhere else when this is the view from the window?|
Most of our guest tend to use the guide books and follow the well-known paths like Catbells. Which, an hour's drive, is a brilliant little hill and well worth its money but of course it is very popular.
You really don’t have to go far from Coal Yeat to find somewhere nice and quiet to sit in the sun and watch the world go by. Even in the busiest times of the year, it is still easy to find some places in the Lake District to be alone and to find peace and quiet. We are at the quiet, undiscovered edge of the Southern Lakes and have some fantastic hidden gems, like the Duddon Valley, only a short drive. Take a look at http://www.western-lakedistrict.co.uk/blog for some tips for the stunningly secluded western lakes.
We still have some availability in May and June, but July and August are almost full. We have some great offers on remaining dates including 10% off the remaining August week 10-17 if you mention this blog!
My favourite two places within everyone's reach and only 15mins from Coal Yeat are:
An easy walk but with stunning views looking down over Coniston Water
The east side of Consiton
Just beyond Nibthwaite is a perfect bay for paddling, swimming and BBQ
