Insider tips....

Now that the lighter evenings are here, it is much easier to get out in the evening and with my husband off for the two weeks, we were finally able to get out.  With the lovely, albeit cold, dry conditions it was perfect for walking the fells.  Now is the ideal time to hit the Lakes and avoiding the crowds.
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 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!
I am frequently asked, “What’s your favourite place?” although tempting to answer, “You have to go and find your own.”, I do always share!!
My favourite two places within everyone's reach and only 15mins from Coal Yeat are:
Beacon Tarn
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
