Yattus is perfectly situated to enjoy all the delights the Lake District has to offer and is within easy reach of fells, lakes and coast.  
Many spectacular walks can be completed from the door - Wastwater is a fairly easy hike over Irton Pike, Blea Tarn and Burnmoor Tarn are accessible from the house or explore the secret valley of Miterdale to name but a few. 

The 'La'al Ratty' narrow-gauge steam railway runs nearby and is a great way to get about in the valley.  Hop on at 'The Green' (5 minute walk)to Beckfoot and then ascend on foot to Burnmoor Tarn or the spectacular waterfall of Stanley Ghyll.  
Take a ride down the valley to Ravenglass, an ancient Roman sea port, to explore the ancient Bath House and stroll along the sea front

There are many Roman ruins further up the valley at Hardknott Fort.
From there it is possible to carry on over Hardknott Pass and Wrynose Pass before dropping into the Langdales and Ambleside (a drive definitely not for the faint-hearted but a drive never to be forgotten)

Eskdale is perfectly placed to explore the wonderful sights of Ennerdale Water, Wasdale and Wastwater (England's deepest lake) and Scafell Pike (England's highest mountain).  There are also many great day trips out from Yattus  such as Muncaster Castle, the South Lakes Safari Park, Furness Abbey and Holker Hall.

A. Wainwright described Eskdale as "...a perfect arcadia in the hills...the finest of all valleys for those whose special joy is to travel on foot...the jewel in the Lake District crown"
