RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS
The location of the Hayloft is very special, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and we were able to completely relax, not having mobile phone reception was a real bonus, we intend to return there.
Excellent Secluded Holiday Cottage
Just returned from a fabulous week with friends. Excellent accommodation, ideally situated for walking, cycling, or just relaxing. Spacious Sitting Room, well fitted kitchen, two double bedrooms with en-suites. Oh, and a very handy store room where you can put your bikes etc.
John & Fiona live in the working farm next door and they are very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Some people might regard the location as a bit remote but if you look at the map before you book you should know what to expect i.e. it's quiet and secluded with picturesque, easy walks to Littletown tea room or Swinside pub. We parked our cars by the cottage when we arrived and didn't move them until we left a week later. Walk to Hawes End and catch the bus to Buttermere etc or the launch on Derent Water to Keswick or elsewhere on the lake. Plenty of nearby Wainwright hills for more serious walkers.
We'll be back.
Thanks again Fiona & John
PS - hope you enjoyed the party on Friday night.... Ruth, Dave, Linda & John
Superb Holiday Cottage
To Fiona and John apologies for this belated review of the Hayloft in Braithwaite from John, Celia and family who visited in early November last year. The Hayloft is a tremendous holiday cottage displaying all the attributes any guest could possibly wish for. From the welcome on day one to the time of our departure our seven day stay was a wonderful experience.
Fiona and John were perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Together with our black labrador pup Cole we all loved the isolation of the location and our many local walks (even in the rain) were thoroughly enjoyed. It is a perfect venue to use as a base to tour the Northern Lakes and nearby Keswick is an excellent lakeland town.
The week we visited the weather was extremely wet and it was not too long after we left the serious flooding in the area started to occur. This meant we did spend more time in the cottage than we had planned but because the cottage is so lovely and cosy this extra time spent indoors was not the slightest problem. The two bedrooms with their own en suites with the living area in between is quite near to perfection. My wife totally loved the layout and would have been happy to have stayed longer. Would we recommend the Hayloft to a friend - Yes we most certainly would.
The property was very remote which suited us as we could walk from the cottage. The Hayloft is set amongst beautiful countryside. Owners live on site and are very friendly and helpful.
The Hayloft was very comfortable, clean, and well presented. The location was perfect for us, in a valley very close to Cat Bells, amazing walks and climbs from the door. The owners were friendly and helpful, but not at all intrusive. We enjoyed staying on their working farm. The beds were very comfy, bathrooms excellent, and it was a real bonus having the wood burner so we felt cosy on the occasional rainy day. We would definitely recommend this accommodation and intend to return.
