Yan, Tan & Tethera

Known individually as Yan, Tan and Tethera (named after the traditional way of counting sheep), the 3 self-contained holiday cottages were converted from a traditional Lakeland bank barn, with great attention paid to detail, comfort and facilities. Each cottage sleeps up to 4 people in 2 separate bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms. The terraced garden has sitting out areas to enjoy the superb mountain views and wide variety of birds that visit our birdfeeders. Enclosed off road parking is available and WiFi. Sorry but we do not allow pets.
