Luxury Lake District Holiday Cottages: Interior & Exterior Layout

Our six luxury Lake District cottages are located on the southerly edge of the National Park. They are tucked away on the outskirts of Backbarrow village, just a couple of miles from Newby Bridge and a short drive to the South Lakeland towns of Ulverston, Windermere and Kendal.

Each of the cottages boasts a carefully positioned hot tub and an outdoor area with patio furniture and a barbecue. The hot tubs make the most of our stunning setting and are exclusively yours to use day and night for the duration of your stay. This luxury touch means you can soak up the breathtaking views across the Leven Estuary and relax in true Lakeland style – with a cup of tea or a glass of fizz in hand.

As with all of our cottages, Yew has some amazing window spaces – particularly the large window overlooking the courtyard and the window nook with its upholstered seat; you’re sure to sit and stay a while.
