Nestled amidst the beautiful Central Fells and a short stroll from the idyllic village of Grasmere is The Yan™ at Broadrayne, our labour of love. We're a bistro with beds on a picture-perfect 17th-century converted sheep farm with glorious views across the Lake District National Park.

Whether you’re on the quest for excitement, relaxation or celebration, our award-winning collection of accommodation, as well as our rustic British bistro, will be here to greet you. With many of the best walking and cycling routes in the Lake District right on our doorstep, The Yan™ is a place we have fallen in love with. We think you will too.

Alongside a bucket-load of family-style hospitality and our come in your muddy boots attitude, we're known as one of the best places to eat in the Lake District.

"The Yan in Grasmere is a beautiful farm in the middle of nowhere: it’s not fancy but it’s hearty..." Grace Dent 2022.

So if its indulgence, adventure and rest you are after, then you have come to the right place and we can't wait to welcome you.

The Yan Bistro Grasmere


Join us at The Yan™ Bistro for seasonal menus inspired by our farm history - rustic Cumbrian classics, nostalgic British favourites and exciting modern dishes - all made from the outstanding local ingredients with which Cumbria is blessed.

 Open for breakfast and dinner, we’ve redefined casual dining. We serve truly delicious food within a wholesome atmosphere, where everyone (no need to be a resident) from walkers fresh off the fells to families dining for an occasion are welcome.



Our collection of boutique hotel-style accommodation here at The Yan™ at Broadrayne offers a luxurious place to take off your walking boots, chill out and rest your head, before another day of adventuring in The Lakes.

From contemporary ensuite bistro bedrooms with skylight views, to heritage self-catering cottages nestled around a picturesque farmyard, to glamping pods filled to the brim with mod cons, we’ve got the perfect place to act as your Lake District home away from home.

A stone’s throw from the bustling village of Grasmere, The Yan™ at Broadrayne, is the perfect base to explore the Lake District. We’ve got a whole host of fells that can be walked from our doorstep as well as lakes, tarns and rivers ready for you to dive, swim and paddleboard on to your heart's content. Our location truly is stunning.



We know that dogs love the Lake District as much as their humans, if not more! So why let them miss out on your Cumbrian getaway? We have some bistro bedrooms and a few of our self-catering cottages where waggy tails, wet noses and weary paws are most welcome.
