Potter's Wheel, located in the small hamlet of Water Yeat, is enviably positioned just seconds from the quiet South Western shores of Coniston Water. This quintessential home away from home is the epitome of a traditional Lakeland cottage and the out-pouring of love from the property owners doesn’t go unnoticed, making this the perfect base to explore some of The Lake District’s unspoilt gems.

The period lead windows, rock faced lounge and original beamed ceilings are paired with modern day amenities and tasteful accessories, striking the perfect balance between the old and the new.

An up-to-the-minute dining kitchen, two comfortable bedrooms and one family house bathroom make up the basis of this ‘olde worlde’ cottage, while the undeniably unique lounge sits at the front of the house. With its feature log burning stove, original spiral staircase and comfortable seating for the whole family, this is without a doubt the beating heart of this charming home.

Not forgetting the reason everyone falls in love with this cottage: the lake access! Step out from the front door and within seconds you’ll have journeyed through the private woodland and be embracing the purity of Lakeland waters. Be it open water swimming, paddleboarding, canoeing – or even a spot of fishing from the private beach area – this is an adventurer’s playground. And dare we say it, possibly even a 'honeymooners haven'…

Guest Reviews


Potter’s Wheel is conveniently located in the small hamlet of Water Yeat, just 5 miles south of Coniston -a popular Lakeland village with a welcoming community of locals. With a buzzing village feel, Coniston offers tourists an array of cafés, twee shops and lively pubs, while also being well located for exploring some of the Lake District’s best known Wainwright fells including Coniston Old Man, Dow Crag and Wetherlam.
