Stunning Surroundings

A cloud inversion in the valley  - hanging over Coniston Water
The Lake District peninsula which encompasses the Furness area of South Lakeland is very sheltered from Easterly and Northerly weather patterns. Here at these luxury Lakeland cottages we have been experiencing some wonderful clouds and skies.

As Coal Yeat farm house is situated on the 500ft contour, with fantastic view especially to the north, we are not overlooked by anything. No trees, no mountains just the ever changing sky with its varying array of differing cloud formations. These last few months with a predominantly North Easterly air flow, the clouds have been very high, white and fluffy carrying no rain. This is because we are sheltered from the North and East by the Central Lake District mountains and to the East by the Pennine Hills.

At night there are so many stars to gaze at in the Coal Yeat sky because we are well away from major light polluters such as cities and large towns the stars twinkle brightly from Coal Yeat holiday cottages.
How often do we ignore the beauty of the ever changing sky?

At Coal Yeat holiday cottages it is impossible as everywhere you look the sky is in front of you, embracing you.

But please don't blame me if on your arrival at Coal Yeat Holiday Cottages you are engulfed in the Lakeland 'mizzle' and cannot see a thing (mizzle being a local term for very wet fine rain accompanied by misty low clouds). If that's the case you can always cuddle up in the cosy warm luxury of these Lakeland holiday cottages.
