The Yan at Broadrayne – a contemporary bistro with beds – is due is to open on Monday 1st July in the The Lake District.
A stone’s throw from the idyllic village of Grasmere, the 17th Century former farm has seven plush en-suite bedrooms, a rustic bistro and open-plan lounge area. Family-run, The Yan epitomises Cumbrian hospitality, offering guests a wholesome welcome, hearty food and stylish interiors, placing the new bistro with beds as the perfect base for those who want to explore The Lakes.
Nestled amongst the Central Fells, and named after the Cumbrian word for the number ‘one’, the centre-piece to The Yan is an open-plan bistro and lounge area. The area combines elements of old and new to create a contrasting yet welcoming environment.
Floor to ceiling windows and skylights fill the communal areas with natural light, allowing guests to look out onto the breathtaking natural landscape, while exposed steel girders and ceilings, wood clad panelling and slate features create an industrial feel.
The Yan will have a striking outdoor area which will see a three tier outdoor terrace with panoramic views of the famous Lake District fells.
Each of the seven plush ensuite bedrooms, meanwhile, have their own individual characteristics, reflecting the unique surrounding landscape and the original quirks of the historic building.
Varying in size, the en-suite bedrooms range from cosy doubles to spacious suites that sleep up to four, catering to the needs of individuals, couples and groups.
The bistro is open to both overnight guests of The Yan and the public, serving seasonal, hearty dishes inspired by the farm’s rich history. A casual yet classy eatery, the menu uses locally sourced and sustainable ingredients as the focal point, creating rustic Cumbrian classics and nostalgic British favourites.
The Yan is the latest addition to the Broadrayne Farm site, which is already home to Grasmere Glamping and Broadrayne Farm Holiday Cottages. Previously an independent hostel, the The Yan has seen an investment of over half a million pounds from David and Sally Keighley, who bought Broadrayne Farm in 2012.
