Surrounding scenery

General

  • Luxurious yurts in the Lake District, 20 minutes' drive from Keswick
  • Peaceful field on the edge of a farm 10 mins' drive from Cockermouth
  • Bedding, woodburner and fully-equipped kitchen in each yurt

Lakes Yurts does exactly what it says on the tin, getting you out on a jolly spent in Central Asian-style accommodation in the Lake District National Park. This site’s set on a working family farm with a friendly atmosphere just outside the village of Brandlingill, in a peaceful setting with scenic views over Lorton's valley and fells.

So what exactly are the yurts like at this fab park? All measure 16ft and have coloured covers, cotton linings, a double sofa bed, two single sofa beds and bedding included. Each has a small woodburning stove (with a basket of logs and sticks provided to keep you toasty), a fully-equipped kitchen with a gas camping stove to get you prepping meals with ease, and a solar-powered lamp and fairy lights to illuminate evenings spent with the box of board games.

Guests are given written info on the local area too, so they can go off on jaunts – including to lovely Lake District market towns like Cockermouth (under 10 minutes’ drive away) and Keswick (20) with their art museums, historic houses and ancient castles. For drives deep in the countryside, the lush Vale of Lorton and its Buttermere, Crummock Water and Loweswater lakes are 15 minutes away.

Back at the site, amenities are in the same field as the yurts and those not keen on sharing will be pleased to know each one has its own private picnic table, shower and toilet.

Please note

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

    The area was perfect for exploring the Lake District, The beds were super comfy and warm. The fire in the yurt kept everything inside nice and cosy in the evenings, and the fire pit outside the yurt was perfect for extending your night with the kids toasting marshmallows. We all just loved the different way of camping in this wonderful part of the country.

    Gorgeous central location for exploring the lake district. Really peaceful and tucked away. The yurt was lovely and equipped with everything. The beds were comfy and with the fire going and fairy lights on was so cosy and magical.
    The facilities (compost toilet & shower) were really clean. Each yurt has there own facilities so we felt totally safe and looked after given the current Covid situation.
    The owners have really thought about everything and we would definitely stay again. My children accidentally burnt a tea towel and the owners were so lovely and accommodating.
    I really recommend this lovely little gem and will be coming back again in the future.

Local attractions

As Lake District aficionados know full well, this area’s prime for puttering about on two feet or two wheels. Whinlatter Forest Park, England’s only mountain forest, is a top-notch pick for cycle rides on the longest purpose-built bike trails in the Lake District, 10 minutes’ drive away; keep eyes peeled for the creatures that scamper around the area: red and roe deer, Herdwick sheep and shrews can all be spotted hereabouts.

If you’ve not spotted any critters, drop by the Lake District Wildlife Park (15 minutes' drive) to see over 100 species, or view the animals underwater at the Lake District Coast Aquarium in Maryport (20 minutes) – a grand way to spend time if rainclouds are gathering.

Still pouring? Dive below ground for tours at Honister Slate Mine (35 minutes), where visitors traverse the terrain on vertical climbs, rope-bridge walkways and steel ladders while learning about the 450-million-year-old volcanic slate.

Back in the open air, the Laal Ratty (Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway, 45 minutes away from the site) will have you chugging along a vintage steam train from the coastal village of Ravenglass to 210ft above sea level at Dalegarth.

Must see

  • Whinlatter Forest & Visitor Centre (6.5 miles)
  • Mirehouse Historic House and Gardens (6.7 miles)
  • Cars of the Stars Motor Museum (9.1 miles)

National Trust
