If you want to get away from it all then look no further than this lovely cottage in Water Yeat. The cottage is warm, cosy and full of character but most of all the peace and quite and beautiful views make for a great relaxing week. Don't let the fact that it is 5 miles from Coniston put you off there are some lovely walks from the door, Beacon Tarn to Torver being one of them and you are close to the Old Man walk, further afield you have Wast Water and Grazedale forest. Ulverston has a Booths supermarket for the essentials and that is only a 15 minute drive away.
The cottage has all you need and don't be put off too much by any comments of outdated ness as this all adds to its charm, the shower is really warm and powerfull and really wakes you up in a morning, if I had to pick at anything I would say that the bed in the front bedroom could do with a comfier mattress but that is being really picky, it didn't stop me sleeping in any way.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

very nice old cottage. loads of character - thick walls etc - probably goes back 250 years or so.
Furnishings and traditional stone floors were nice. Wood burner was OK (ish) - needs some TLC.
Bedrooms and bathrooms very nice. No noise from traffic.
Can walk from front door.
Next door cottage is being refurbished - but this will not disturb a stay here at all.
Only slight negative is - lack of decent kitchen equipment - could do with a new set of crocks and glasses (and oven door on it's last legs). I would certainly stay again
