No smoking.\n\n Water Yeat is a peaceful hamlet at the southern tip of Coniston Water. Jackson’s Barn was converted from a barn at Water Yeat Farm which is believed to date back to the 17th century and still retains its large characterful barn doors. It was a mixed working farm and the Jacksons who ran it also took in paying guests. The Lake District National Park attracted more tourists after the railways were developed and there was a station at Coniston. Holidaymakers then travelled by horse and cart or by boat south to the nearby Lake Bank Jetty. Guests have been welcomed at the farm for more than one hundred years. During World War II the Jacksons cared for two young evacuees from London who were very happy here and only left when the war ended. They returned many times and have written interesting short accounts of their years at the farm and installed a stone memorial to the Jacksons at Water Yeat.\nThe landscape 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 wild garlic and away from the noise of traffic the wildlife and birdsong can be appreciated. Black Herdwick lambs and sheep 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 though nearby Nibthwaite can boast the only swill maker in England. Swills are beautiful handmade baskets for both display and practical use and they make a rare and special souvenir from this part of the Lake District.\nThe area is associated with a number of famous people and the Ruskin Museum in Coniston village is an interesting place which features information about Donald Campbell who lost his life on Coniston Water in the 1960s attempting the world water speed record as well as Arthur Ransome who wrote the ’Swallows and Amazons’ books and John Ruskin. Ruskin’s house Brantwood is situated on the north east side of Coniston Water and is open to the public. The view from Brantwood over Coniston Water is spectacular. Beach 10 miles. Shop 5½ miles pub and restaurant 2 miles.\nJackson’s Barn can be booked together with Swingletree Cottage UK1258 to accommodate up to 8 guests.

    Jackson's Barn was the ideal stay for us! Very close to Coniston Lake where we kayaked and swam. There were good walks close by. The barn itself was lovely, and very clean. Only scored low on local amenities as there isn't much close by but this wasn't a problem for us as we'd bought everything ahead and anything we forgot we bought when we were out for the day. We would love to stay again and would consider a bigger group and renting the cottage next door too.

    Recently refurbished cottage, very comfortable and cosy. Fantastic views over the valley, the fields and the countryside. Modern cuisine, well-equipped. Very quiet, at the heart of the Lake District.



    out of 10

    overall the cottage is very nice but cleanliness & shortage of pans, potato masher, fire glove & the fan extractor flap outside makes enough noise to wake you up at night. cleanliness wise the double bed we slept in was disgraceful pillows had no protectors on them and the pillows were very stained as was the mattress protector if we had noticed this at the beginning of the week we would have asked for new or gone home, the quality of these were such that they could be renewed every couple of weeks without major cost.

    Fabulous barn conversion, very warm and comfortable to come back to after cold November hikes and bike rides.



    out of 10

    Great property in a good location. A tad too hot and confusing heating controls and not very clean



    out of 10

    We had a few issues with the cottage to which we have discussed with cottages.com



    out of 10

    Had a number of issues with cottage which we raised with owner and cottage company. Not sure their response was entirely satisfactory. Certainly did not feel the cost for the week was fair and in our opinion was not worth it. Will not be returning.
