Yetlands Cottage is a cottage in the delightful Cumbrian village of Renwick. The cottage adjoins the owners' house, Thackmoor Nook, but has separate access. Parking is private and a few yards from the cottage front door. Dogs are welcome. The cottage has 150 excellent Reviews on Air BNB and 42 on Trip Advisor. The cottage also has the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence. The wood burning stove is easy to work, efficient and lovely to sit in front of. The M6 is about 20 minutes away.

The space
The porch is suitable for walking/cycling gear. The living space has a wood-burning stove, sofa, armchair, dining table and chairs, TV and DVD player. The kitchen area has an oven, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, crockery, pans etc. Upstairs is the bedroom with king size bed, built in wardrobe and bathroom. In the bathroom is a shower and bath. The bedroom has plenty of space for a cot and we have a new travel cot (August 2019). Upstairs the original wood window beams can be seen. We provide enough fuel for the stove free. Pets are welome but we ask that they are not left on their own in the cottage and not allowed up on the furniture. We also ask that dogs are not allowed to foul the garden area. There is a country lane 20 yards from the cottage which many owners use for dog walking.
Guests are welcome to use the garden, garden seats and the wild flower area. There are garden seats, great for relaxing on.
In the garage we have a BBQ for guests use. This can be used in the lawn area which is accessed from your patio door. We make available fuel and lighting fuel and suggest a contribution of £3 in the honesty box.
In the adjoining barn we have a cross trainer and gym bike which guests can use. We also have a table football game!
The property is on the edge of the village and there is no through traffic passing by, making it very quiet and safe. Opposite us is a farm barn and field which has lambs in spring. Renwick is ideal for walking, cycling and relaxing. The cottage is close to the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Beauty. For both walking and cycling there is an excellent variety of routes immediately from the house such as Renwick Fell on the lower Pennines and the C2C is nearby. Sunset from Renwick Fell, looking across the Eden Valley to the Lakes is often stunning. We have 2 bikes that are available for guests at no cost. Dick and Kath, the owners, are keen on outdoor activities and can offer advice on routes. They also provide written guides for some local walks. The cottage has a customised OS map on the wall which shows the local area and centred on Renwick. We also provide an OS map of the area. We have a wide range of leaflets and books on walks and attractions in the area, including dog friendly walks, pubs and cafes.

Guest access
There is no formal check in, guests can arrive at any time after 3. The cottage has its own access. The cottage and main part of the house are connected but there is a lock on the guests' side to ensure privacy and the cottage is not overlooked. Guests have sole use of the cottage living room, bathroom and bedroom. Guests have a separate grassed area but also access to the owner's garden. We have a small wild flower area with a bench/table which is lovely for sitting on an evening. Also adjoining the cottage is the barn, which is only jused now for storage (and by the swallows in summer!)
We ask that guests leave by 10AM but if guests would like to get an extra walk in, they are welcome to then leave the car on the drive and enjoy the morning at Renwick

Other things to note
The cottage uses our Internet connection which, like most of the village, comes from a mast on the fellside. We've installed a booster and almost all of the time the WiFi in the cottage is fine but because of the location we cannot guarantee a consistent WiFi signal. If guests have any urgent need for access to the Internet you are welcome to use the signal in the main part of the house where the signal is stronger and more consistent.
Mobile phone signal is also inconsistent in the village and cottage. If guests have an urgent need for a phone, they are welcome to use the owners' landline.

Location

Renwick, England, United Kingdom

This is a quiet, relaxing location on the edge of a small rural village. There is very little through traffic in the village and the small lane next to the cottage only leads to one house further down the lane.
There are many walks in the area and before guests arrive we send a great deal of information about walks and the area. Dick and Kath are keen walkers and can also offer advice if needed on walks on the fells and on the roads, which are quiet and safe.
Kirkoswald is 4 miles away and has a village shop (which also has coffee and sandwiches), doctors surgery and 2 pubs. The Fetherson Arms in Kirkoswald in 2012 won Pub Of The Season, in 2014 won Pub Of The Year and was a finalist for the Solway CAMRA Award in 2015. The Highland Drove pub in Great Salkeld has the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence.
Kirkoswald won an award in the 2016 Britain in Bloom competition.
In another mile Lazonby has a Co-op supermarket, post office and train station. Penrith has a large range of supermarkets like Morrisons, Sainsburys and Booths if you are coming south up the M6. There is a small Co-Op supermarket at Lazonby CA10 1BG 01768898210 (5 miles away) and if you are coming into Renwick from the M6 you will almost certainly pass through Lazonby. It is open 7.30-8 each day and 9-1 Sundays. It has a full range of groceries (meat, fresh bread etc.) and a Post Office. Kirkoswald has a small village shop which is open daily and Sunday, 4 miles away.

If you get stuck, for instance for essentials like milk, knock on our door!

The village shop at Kirkoswald and the Coop at Lazonby have ATM machines.

The Church of England church in Renwick often has summer jams and marmalade with an honesty box – always scrummy!

Penrith is 20 minutes travel and has a cinema and other services expected in a large town. There is easy access to the Lake District from the cottage and Ullswater is about 30 minutes drive.

Hadrian's Wall at Birdoswald is also about 30 minutes drive. On the way is the small market town of Brampton. The present church is a splendid example of the work of the Pre-Raphaelites. This is the only church built by the architect Philip Webb and is adorned by an exquisite set of stained glass windows designed by Sir Edward Burne-Jones and manufactured by William Morris.There is lots to do in the area. The large Celtic Stone Circle of Long Meg and her Daughters is nearby. There is a working watermill at Little Salkeld about 5 miles away which has an excellent cafe and you can see the mill working. A short and easy walk takes you to Lacy's Caves, beside the Eden where in the 18th century a local landowner stored his wine - sadly now gone! This is is a lovely walk along the side of the Eden and salmon can sometimes be seen. Otters have returned. The Settle to Carlisle train line stops at Lazonby about 5 miles away and makes a great day out, going across the Ribblehead Viaduct.
Kirkoswald has a lovely church dating from the 12C.
The RSPB site at Geltsdale is 25 minutes away and has Dark Sky Discovery Site status.
Keswick has the Theatre by the Lake which has year round professional productions.
This is a quiet, relaxing location on the edge of a small rural village. There is very little through traffic in the village and the small lane next to the cottage only leads to one house further down the lane.…

I've lived in this area for 23 years. I'm retired from a career in social work but I'm involved in local history and discussion groups and the pub quiz team. I love gardening, walking, reading and the cinema.
During your stay
We live in the property next door and so most of the time are available if there's any problem, but we very much respect the privacy of guests.
