Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Yew Bank is beautifully positioned on the banks of the River Brathay at Clappersgate and provides the unique and enviable opportunity to meander down the 38 stone steps from the garden to the water’s edge - a glorious spot to enjoy morning coffee, breakfast or even an aperitif before dinner. Enjoy a paddle, splash about with the children or head straight into the water from the house with your paddleboard or kayak. Don't forget your GoPro for some really great footage of the magical scenery.

The space
Yew Bank is a very social retreat with a flexible layout providing a relaxing vibe and plenty of space for you and your loved ones to gather and spend precious time together. The ground floor is centred around the dining kitchen, the hub of the home, a great place to enjoy preparing and eating a delicious meal together with large wood-burning stove, breakfast bar and formal dining table. To one side of the kitchen sits a modern lounge with wood burning stove and a cosy snug to the other with exposed stone walls and wonderful views of the water. There’s a handy downstairs WC off the elegant hallway with original Victorian tiles and plenty of hanging space for walking boots and jackets.

The first floor offers great views of the Lake and four good bedrooms sharing in a luxurious house bathroom with deep, free-standing bath, shower cubicle, hand basin and WC. Bedroom 1 has a kingsize sleigh bed whilst bedroom 2 has a four-poster double with en-suite shower, hand basin and WC. Bedroom 3 is a lovely bright double and you’ll find twin beds in bedroom 4.

There ample parking here at Yew Bank, and plenty of seating opportunities within the tiered gardens. Please note the 38 stone steps to the water’s edge which is also unfenced. The owner has shared access through the garden into the water.
