The Yan is launching a new lakeland cottage for two
The Yan in the Lake District is launching The Smithy – an idyllic lakeland cottage for two that’s perfect for a minimoon or a pre-wedding getaway. This detached lakeland stone cottage on The Yan’s beautiful former 17th century farm site at the foot of the fells, is just outside the picture-perfect Grasmere village. A peaceful retreat for two, it can be fully serviced with breakfasts and dinners from The Yan, either in the chic bistro or delivered via ‘room service’ to the cottage door.
The Smithy has been lovingly converted and offers high ceilings, an open-plan living, kitchen and dining space with a wood-burning stove, a bedroom with a king-sized bed and a contemporary bathroom furnished with local goodies. The former blacksmith’s residence is all on one level, with stunning views towards Helm Crag and Steel Fell on one side, plus French doors which open out onto a private seating area overlooking Grasmere Village, Loughrigg and Silver Howe. It has its own enclosed south-facing garden too, complete with a barbeque.
The Yan opened in July 2019 and has fast gained a reputation as one of the best places to eat in the Lakes, with everything pickled, preserved, smoked, cooked and baked in-house by executive chef Will Manley and his team. Named after the word for ‘one’ in Cumbrian dialect, The Yan has a rustic bistro, seven en suite bedrooms, four Lakeland cottages and two glamping pods, providing guests with a wholesome welcome, hearty food and stylish interiors, all at the foot of the fells.
