Surrounded by rolling hills and the glorious unspoilt countryside of The Gilpin Valley, Low Shepherd Yeat offers these delightful refurbished properties (refs UKC2940 and LK3) on this former farm, and can be enjoyed together or individually in an idyllic setting.
Low Shepherd Yeat Farm, (ref LK3), is a superb, detached former farmhouse with a large, picture window and pretty countryside views. It has been extensively refurbished and redecorated and is perfect for families or groups of friends looking for space, comfort and well equipped accommodation to enjoy time together. The well-presented living accommodation includes a delightful dining conservatory overlooking the garden and fields beyond. The double bedrooms are comfortable and enjoy private bathroom facilities. A games room offers in house recreation for all whilst the hot tub is perfectly placed to enjoy the surrounding views.
Shepherd Yeat End Cottage, ref (UKC2940), has been refurbished with careful attention to detail in order that the charm and character of this delightful former farm cottage is evident today. The property will suit couples, smaller families and friends looking for a comfortable, well equipped cottage in picturesque surroundings. The well presented living room is enhanced by a wood burner, perfect for those cooler evenings when snuggling in front of the fire is the ideal way to end a day’s walking. French doors open onto the spacious veranda area wrapping two elevations of the cottage and allowing guests the opportunity to make the most of sunnier days. Glorious countryside views can be enjoyed from this elevated position – a delightful spot to enjoy breakfast al fresco or perhaps a chilled glass of wine at the end of the day.
Sitting in 25 acres of picturesque countryside, Low Shepherd Yeat enjoys its own stretch of the River Gilpin with a stone bridge over the river. There are beautiful walks and cycle paths literally from the door, whilst the Lake District Fells such as The Langdale Pikes and the Old Man of Coniston are a short drive. Only 4 miles from Lake Windermere and Bowness with boutiques, galleries, tea rooms, pubs, water sports and ferries to Hawkshead, Coniston and the Grizedale Forest. Cruisers at Bowness offer trips round Lake Windermere, a more leisurely way to enjoy the wonderful scenery, calling at Ambleside to the north or Lakeside to the south to visit the fascinating Aquarium of the Lakes. Historic houses with lovely grounds such as Holker Hall and Sizergh Castle are nearby; don’t miss Muncaster Castle or the South Lakes Wild Animal Park at Dalton.
Beatrix Potter, Wordsworth and other famous authors found the Lake District truly inspirational and there are many locations where their history and works are interestingly displayed. Nearby, the historic market town of Kendal has an art gallery, castle, theatre, larger shops and pretty walks along the River Kent. Whichever direction you walk or drive in this most beautiful area will bring you to breath-taking views of the lakes and mountains. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
Properties can be booked together to accommodate upto 12 guests.
