To give our cleaners enough time to complete the additional cleaning and sanitising that is currently needed to keep our guests safe, check-in and check-out times at the majority of our properties have been temporarily revised. The revised times for this property are reflected above.
Brackenthwaite Farm is situated in Yealand in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty located in a splendid rural location between the coastal towns of Arnside and Silverdale in the south of Cumbria. Once a working farm, these stunning character properties have been converted into some truly beautiful holiday homes providing comfort, style and real home feel in the south lakes.
An abundance of outdoor activities are available from the doorstep including cycling and walking in the nearby countryside and villages, with RSPB Leighton Moss also nearby. The nearby coastal village of Arnside is less than 10 minutes away in the car and offers a lovely coastal walking. There is also a small hill hike here on Arnside Knott which provides breathtaking views of Morecambe Bay, the Cumbrian Peninsulas and the Lake District mountains alongside some wonderful wildlife including wild flowers and rare species of Butterfly. There is also walking further afield to Warton Crag and into RSPB Leighton Moss which is home to a café ideal for taking a break and grabbing some refreshments. The wetland reserve is home to a huge variety of birds. You may also be lucky enough to see an otter, deer or water vole.
From the wonderful holiday homes themselves, you can see Farleton Knott which is the location of some of the best limestone pavements in the area. Whilst staying here at The Coach House, don't be surprised if you run into Dora Explorer, one of the resident free range hen , who might pop up onto your windowsill to say hello. Her free range eggs are also available to purchase.
Yealand, Beetham, Arnside and Silverdale all house proper country pubs where you can stop in for a bite to eat and swift drink to keep the energy levels whilst you explore this beautiful area. Don't forget Fairy Steps either, a local hike through Limestone rock. Legend has it that if you can reach the top from the bottom without touching the sides of the canyon, you will be granted a wish upon completion...there's only one way to find out.
Further afield you can stumble upon the stunning market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, a cobbled village that lies right on the border of Cumbria, Yorkshire and Lancashire. Home to a variety of excellent shopping, numerous fantastic pubs and Ruskin's View, an excellent viewpoint that overlooks the Lune Valley. More towards the Lake District, you'll discover Kendal, a large town with lots of things to do including museums, shopping, cinema, food & drink plus lots more.
Brackenthwaite farm is flanked on all sides by lush green fields and the owners have even devised a personal nature trail just for you. The local landscapes are the very definition of a country escape and each season brings a unique magic to that landscape. Whether that's enjoying an autumn stroll through the leafy woodland or a summer walk along the coast.

The double bedroom is to the front also on the first floor with views over the pretty courtyard which has stables and hanging baskets and the odd occasional free range hen. The modern bathroom is also on this floor and has a bath with shower overhead. Ideal for a good soak and relax after a day exploring the area. Directly next to the entrance of the coach house entrance is the porch area where there is a laundry room shared with the next door coach house one which has a washing machine and dryer for guest use.
On the outside of the property you can take advantage of a private seating area, ideal for enjoying the peace and quiet with the sound of bird song. There is also stables here too, meaning you can bring your horse on holiday with you.
