On arrival at The Hayloft we were overwhelmed by the log burner, flowers and biscuits. Its the best place we have stayed in. The owners were most helpful and obliging and we will go back, if it was star rated it would be 5 star plus.

The Hayloft was really a nice cottage at a very high standard in a beautiful part of the Lakes. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and we will definitely be holidaying at The Hayloft next year. l could recommend The Hayloft to anybody.

Stunning views from the property and walks right on the doorstep!
Mrs Emma Thomas, Tunbridge Wells, Kent

This cottage is in a spectacular location with wonderful views. Being away from the nearest lakes, it is particularly peaceful, although still within each reach of popular tourist attractions. The cottage itself is superb, the layout of two en-suite bedrooms around the sitting room well thought-through, the furnishings of very high quality and the decorations charming. The terrace and garden are perfect for the occasional sunny day (!) and through the efforts of the owners the bird life is spectacular (we saw a woodpecker family: mother, father and chick, every day). The owners were very helpful.

Friendly owners, perfect location. Great being on working farm with animals. Bird feeders meant there was birdwatching from the cottage windows - and wonderful views.

This was an outstanding property in a wonderfully remote location. Stunning surroundings and view. All facilities were excellent with a good selection of guides and maps to borrow and family games available. A perfect break was had by us all. The log burner within the property had the place toasty during the cold snaps we had and there were plenty of dry hardwood logs available.
Mr Steve Webb, Hexham,
December 2014

A fantastic well equipped, spotless cottage in a great location. The wood burner in the lounge heated the place quickly and made it cosy. There were great walks from the doorstep and amazing views of Skiddaw from the kitchen window. The super king size bed was really comfy and it was only a 15 minute drive into Keswick. Overall a great spot for exploring the Northern Lakes.

The location was excellent, with lots of walking direct from cottage, the car could have a rest. Had very friendly and helpful owners. Lovely and quiet, a proper get away.
Mr John Evans, Colchester, Essex

The owners welcomed us on arrival and made sure we had information regarding the accommodation, directions to local points of interest, where to purchase food items and good food pubs. The property was exceptionally clean with all mod cons, and was situated in the most beautiful setting with amazing views from all windows. Eat in or locally, you would not be disappointed with the surroundings. The accommodation and location is perfect for dogs. It is somewhere we would recommend and where we will be returning for many years to come.
