    About this property

    A barn conversion at the southern end of Coniston Water, with wonderful scenery, walking and cycling from the door. Coniston and Ulverston within easy reach.
    S94763 is a barn conversion at the former Water Yeat Farm, which is believed to date from the 17th century. The hamlet of Water Yeat is at the southern tip of Coniston Water. The landscape here has changed little over time with sheep farming on the fells and forestry still much in evidence. In springtime the woods are carpeted with fragrant bluebells and black Herdwick lambs roam free on the unfenced land. The old forestry skills of coppicing, charcoal burning, and the making of bobbins, pillboxes, hurdles and besom brooms have largely died out.
    The Lake Bank Jetty on Coniston Water is just a 10-minute stroll from the door. This is a great place for a swim or to launch a canoe, or go wind or paddle boarding. Access to the boating centre on Coniston Water is about ½ mile from Coniston village. Boats can be hired and trips on the launches or the steam yacht Gondola can be taken.
    This area is well served by good pubs, including a 14th-century inn at Lowick, which claims to be the oldest pub in the Lake District National Park. Coniston is about 5½ miles to the north and the busy little market town of Ulverston is about 9 miles to the south. Both have a good selection of shops, pubs, restaurants, places of interest and tourist information offices. The area around Water Yeat is a paradise for cyclists of all abilities, and the Blawith Loop begins just half a mile away. From Water Yeat crossing the bridge over the River Crake and on to Nibthwaite, there is easy access to the many Grizedale biking tracks which cater for a wide range of abilities. Grizedale Forest has many way-marked walks and the ‘Go Ape’ experience. A favourite short walk from the door is to Beacon Tarn. This walk can be extended to join the Cumbria Way, which begins in Ulverston and passes along the tarn’s western shoreline, continuing past the ancient farmstead of Stable Harvey and on to Torver, bypassing the Old Man of Coniston and on for about 70 miles to Carlisle. Fishing nearby. Beach 10 miles. Shop 5½ miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
