A BOUTIQUE hotel is launching a new idyllic Lakeland cottage for two.

The Yan is launching The Smithy, a cottage that comes complete with room service delivery of The Yan’s renowned comfort food breakfasts and dinners.

The cottage also boasts any-night arrival and only a two-night minimum stay.

The Smithy is a detached Lakeland stone cottage on The Yan’s beautiful former 17th Century farm site at the foot of the fells, just outside picture-perfect Grasmere village. The Smithy has been lovingly converted and offers high ceilings, an open-plan living, kitchen and dining space with wood-burning stove, a bedroom with king-sized bed and a contemporary bathroom furnished with local Pure Lakes 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 barbeque.

The Smithy sleeps up to two adults (plus one baby free of charge) in a double room.

A two-night stay costs from £630 on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis for two guests, or from £350 on a self-catering basis.

The cottage has free parking for one car too. A Hauck Sleep N Play Center travel cot can be provided for an additional charge of £10.
