    “It was a lovely well appointed lodge with everything in the right place.”

    We or our offspring will use it as a base for Lakes going forward. Owners a delight and were readily available for any issues, of which there were none.

Park off-road beside the property and unpack with ease into this lovely wooden lodge, finding yourself in a tastefully furnished open-plan living space with a sitting area beside an electric fire stove, encouraging you to relax with a coffee and plan the day ahead of you. The kitchen houses a good selection of amenities, so why not cook a heart-warming meal and enjoy it wither at the dining table or outside on the decking with a view to the distant hills? Freshen up in the shower room before settling down for the night in either a well-presented double or a twin room. Crake Valley Holiday Park is a lovely location within the Lake District for exploring the local area, with many walks through the stunning scenery beginning on your doorstep.

About the location


Torver 3 miles; Coniston 6 miles; Ulverston 8 miles.

Water Yeat is a small hamlet in the Crake Valley, not far from the shores of Allan Tarn, featured in Arthur Ransome's book Swallows And Amazons as Octopus Lake, and a 10 minute walk from the shores of Coniston Water in the beautiful Lake District National Park. At the southern tip of Coniston Water, where Allan Tarn turns into the Crake River, lie the Hamlets of Water Yeat and Nibthwaite. Coniston Water, one of the most imposing and beautiful English Lakes, is situated to the west of Lake Windermere. To the northern end of the lake, the pretty village of Coniston is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the Lake District National Park and makes a superb base for touring Hawkshead, the Langdales, Ambleside and Windermere. Also in the area is Beacon Tarn, featured on Britain’s Favourite View and also reached when venturing along the Long Distance Path of Cumbria Way. Beacon Tarn is a wonderfully tranquil place and well worth a visit. Superb walking, mountain biking and climbing are available locally on Coniston Old Man, Tilberthwaite and Wetherlam, while Grizedale Forest offers lovely woodland trails. The quiet lake is ideal for dinghy sailing and canoeing, or a leisure cruise on the beautiful steam yacht 'Gondola'. Visit the Beatrix Potter Gallery at Hawkshead, Tarn Hows, one of the most visited beauty spots in the country, or Esthwaite Water, famous for its fishing.
