“Very high spec cottage in a lovely location”
Reviewed August 5, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This cottage was a great find. It looked lovely from the pictures but they didn't do it justice. Everything about the cottage was of a high specification and there were lots of lovely touches that enhanced our stay. The bathroom was fantastic and the dressing gowns were much appreciated when braving the cold evening air on the way to the hot tub. This was just fabulous and very welcome after a long day on the hills. The sound system and 3D tv were great as the weather is notoriously unpredictable in this area!!
The cottage is situated down a 2 mile narrow drive - great to run or cycle along. Just be warned though, don't expect a phone or internet signal at all. This certainly didn't bother us but might be a concern for some.
Torver itself is very quiet but we could certainly recommend the local pub - where we ate twice. The food and the service at Wilson's was of a high standard too and we didn't feel the need to try anywhere else. Coniston has lots of tea shops where you can use the WIFI if you are desperate and the walk along the lake front from Torver to Coniston is very scenic and not overcrowded like many parts of the 'lakes' in the summer.
All in all this was a wonderful cottage and I would hope that we will return in the future as we still have many Wainwright's Peaks to conquer!

“Wow wow wow”

My husband and I travelled to the Lake District for the very first time in June and after a long journey we were delighted when we arrived at this lovely cottage..Having been renovated only 2 years ago everything was in pristine condition with quality furnishings it was a wow when walking through the door. We loved the location quite remote but only 2 miles down a single track to the small village of Torver there is nothing much in Torver apart from 2 pubs and a small deli, further down the road is Coniston with the lake where you can take a boat trip around the lake. Torver itself is quite central with Ambleside, Grasmere, Windermere etc not a long drive away.

The cottage itself is set among acres of fell land and you have sheep as your neighbours. It's nice to walk around but keep dogs on a lead as we nearly lost ours as he went off to chase the sheep. There is no need to take cleaning stuff as it was all provided as well as dressing gowns and a hairdryer all stuff that I had taken. The hot tub at the cottage was a real bonus and lovely for a soak in the evening after a long day walking. There is also a whirlpool bath and a rainfall shower. There is no phone signal or wifi but even though I like to be connected it wasn't a huge problem phone signals were poor all over the lakes on O2 to be honest.

We loved the lakes and already booked for next year in the same area but a bigger cottage as we are going with family next year.

“5 Star Accommodation”
Reviewed April 18, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

person found this review helpful

My husband and I stayed at Yew Tree cottage for 7 days commencing 27 March to celebrate my early retirement. What a fantastic cottage. Attention to detail is "first class" and the photographs do not emphasise how large the cottage is. The location is perfect, nice and quiet with terrific views over the countryside. It was lambing season and each morning it was lovely to see sheep with newly born babies in nearby fields. The furnishings are superb and very comfortable. Extras like the 3D TV and spa bath were very much appreciated, as was the lovely, relaxing hot tub. I thoroughly recommend this accommodation.

“Fantastic weekend luxury getaway”
Reviewed January 27, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Myself and my partner have just spent 3 nights here to celebrate his 30th birthday and I honestly wish we could have stayed longer. The cottage location is fantastic. Out of the way enough to feel secluded and cosy but not too far from the village of Coniston if supplies are needed.
The cottage itself was so luxurious and beautifully furnished. I particularly loved the log fire, , four poster bed and fantastic enquire bathroom with whirlpool bath.

We had a wonderful stay and feel totally refreshed. I will definitely be booking again and this time for a longer stay!

Fantastic. Spent a fortnight wrapped in luxury on our honeymoon. Cottage is lovely and the hot tub is fab.
A secluded retreat amongst the hills but close enough to civilisation if needed. No wifi or mobile reception at the cottage which was a plus as hubby is self employed and gets so many calls day and night - at bottom of 2 mile lane reception is good.though to make calls out if needed. Large fridge freezer so take groceries in with you if you plan to self cater. We managed to fill the freezer with everything we took and munched our way through it only had to buy bread and milk locally. Supermarkets are scarce so be sure to buy before getting to the area. We didn't want to leave the cottage. A lovely retreat for twwo.

“Fantastic high quality cottage in great surroundings”

I chose this cottage because we wanted peace and quiet - and that is what we got ! What we weren't prepared for was the quality and space in what seemed on booking to be a small venue. With high ceilings and great choice in decor, the place was a real pleasure to stay in and we didn't want to leave. Great for couples ! We took our dog and went on loads of walks and spent a lot of time chilling in the hot tub ;) ... So good for the soul. I have recommended this place to many of my friends. Thanks !
