Yattus is sure to appeal to the more discerning client.

About the local area

The Western Lake District is an area of great diversity and contrasts, with famous lakes, awesome mountains and dramatic coastline. Home to Britain’s deepest lake, Wast Water (86m metres deep) and England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike (977 metres high).

Much of Western Lake District lies within the Lake District National Park and includes many National Nature Reserves, where, at some, guided walks are available.

Each valley has its own special characteristics, from the austerity of Wasdale to the lush green of Eskdale and the peace of Buttermere Valley. Then of course there is the beautiful Crummock Water and Loweswater.

At the coast visitors will find busy harbours, award-winning beaches and dramatic cliffs. Situated on the shores of the Solway Firth is Silloth with wide uncrowded beaches and views across the water to the Scottish hills (Due to tides not suitable for swimming). This coastal area has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Down the coast is Maryport, with its Lake District Coast Aquarium and Maritime Museum. A short distance inland is the old market town of Cockermouth, where a market has been held here since 1221 and also famous as the birth place of William and Dorothy Wordsworth.

What our customers say about Yattus

S Lambert -

Lived up to expectations. Our second visit to Yattus - good location.

J Wilcox -

Well located with Wasdale also easily accessible. Local pubs have good food and a fine selection of real ales.

Dc Simpson -

I chose Yattus primarily because of its location on the western edge of the Lake District. The house was great. It was better than I expected from the pictures and the description.

C Dunne -

Excellent property which we would happily visit again.

V Hodgkinson -

Fabulous cottage, lots of history, great location.

E Roberts -

The photos dont do it justice, there are many more rooms than are shown, when booking was concerned the bedrooms might have been a bit dodgy as there weren't any photos, they were however decorated to a better standard then the rooms shown, the garden is superb the kids shed/ den isn't highlighted and is good for the right age, all in all it seems to undersell itself

S Bernard -

The property was perfectly clean and was extremely well equipped even the den in the garden was full of toys to entertain the little ones. It was very warm and the linen provided was of great quality. In all a very lovely property.
