Here you can take a stroll to High Dam or Lake Windermere straight from the cottage door, and come back to relax by a log fire or sit and sun your self in the courtyard garden.  Tanyard Cottage is ideal for either families or couples.  The cottage sleeps 2-4 and is available for weekly lets, weekends and midweek breaks.  Please note  – the cottage has just had a major refurbishment downstairs and now has a slate floor with underfloor heating and a new kitchen – we will update the website photos as soon as technically possible.
