OK - so you shouldn't position in the direct sun !!
For seven days solid we have had temperatures soar into the mid twenties, dawn to dusk sunshine and not breath of wind. Our current guests never left the estate - I've dusted down the sunloungers and cleaned out the BBQ's and they are now in heaven.  As they said "why share the sun with the crowds in Coniston, when we have paradise here".  When it's like this, there is nothing more perfect than wasting time in our Lakeland holiday cottages here at Coal Yeat Farm.

I can't believe that it's only the end of March, and already I've applied the suncream and we've had our evening meal in the garden twice - beats last years record already!!

The daffodils of which there are over 50 varieties planted in front of the holiday cottages, have suddenly all bloomed at once this week - soon the vibrant yellow will be taken over by the blues.  Come mid April its bluebell time in the woods of the Furness Peninsular, and the trees slowly come into full leaf. The lakeland colours are so fresh and verdant in May and when the rhododendrons and azaleas come into full flower it's a spectacle not to miss

Our two Coal Yeat Holiday Cottages have recently welcomed some annual visitors who stay out in the paddocks well away, but in view from the self catering cottages the pedigree rare breed British Saddleback pigs. They camp out in the fields providing free range pig entertainment for all our guests.

Other annual visitors to Coal Yeat Farm include a cuckoo, swallows and martins, suckler cows with their calves and the sheep and lambs. These join the residential owls, falcons and other birds of prey and the passing buzzards which often glide past. And we must not forget the Skylarks singing a joyful welcome overhead.

All out holiday cottages are provided with a dedicated barbecue area and full barbecue facilities. The smoke from grilling saddleback sausages and burgers have certainly been hanging over these Lake District self catering cottages this weekend. Wish you were here?

We still have some availability for the early summer , please give Emma a call on 07887731553 to check availability.

After getting a wee bit lost on the fell road we made it here - and were greeted with caramel shortbread, thank you. Absolutely gorgeous cottage and surrounding countryside, we were lucky enough to have scorching weather and most of the time sunbathing and barbecuing in the wee garden. Thank you again for such beautiful and well equipped accommodation. We will recommend it x
