Located down a private farm track within the stunning Lake District National Park, The Hayloft, a lovingly constructed studio apartment is a hidden treasure, sitting in a secluded position boasting stunning views and a hot tub with privacy screening, fairy lights and a nighttime carpet of stars due to such low pollution. There is also a "Hayloft Trail" around the fields surrounding the property, ideal for dog walking or an evening amble.
Beautifully renovated, character combined with modern conveniences, the result is a heavenly spot for two.
Beautiful, traditional beams, combined with modern conveniences, the result is a very bijou spot for two. Easily accessible, romantic, the furnishings very easy on the eye, close to civilisation and yet a world away from it all.
A variety of good traditional Lakes pubs, restaurants and takeaways are within touching distance (The Hayloft has a kitchenette with kettle, microwave/oven combination, fridge and crockery). Walking from the door is a must, the Swinside Stone Circle is within walking distance, and an additional barn is available to guests to use as a drying room, or to store bicycles etc.
The Hayloft resides in the shadow of the great Black Combe which is just short of a mountain. Black Combe is the best place in the UK to see the five kingdoms, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and The Isle of Man.
Cumbrian Heavy Horses are literally just around the corner, and Murthwaite Green Trekking Centre is a five minute drive. As are the beaches at Silecroft or Haverigg and not forgetting Silecroft golf course, which is also situated next to the coast. Eskdale golf course, also quite nearby, is a private 18 hole course.
The photographs will make it easy to imagine the sublime peace and quiet, and yet it is even better in real life. Once you've explored the fells on your doorstep you may want to venture a little further afield - Coniston's Old Man or Dow Crag. Attempting Scafell Pike from the Wasdale end is truly breathtaking. Keen cyclists will likely know of Grizedale Forest and its miles of cycle paths, and there's a 'Go-Ape' there too for the thrill seekers!
Food and pub options as mentioned are not limited, there's the Punch Bowl close by, the Black Cock Inn and The Old Kings Head in Broughton, The Blacksmiths in Broughton Mills, Da Vinci (Italian) and The Clocktower in Millom - details of all these are supplied to guests within the booking information.
A car is essential to appreciate the area. The Hayloft is well placed for all the western coast has to offer, Muncaster Castle is a 20 minute drive, Whitehaven around 40 minutes. An artisan bakery, awarding winning butcher and greengrocers, outstanding cafes and more walking opportunities can all be found in Broughton, a five minute drive in the opposite direction. A foray into the Duddon Valley, several minutes drive away is highly recommended, providing a very scenic route into the Eskdale valley where you can find Lal Ratty, the miniature Ravenglass & Eskdale railway.
And if you simply continue on the road passed the accommodation, the Whicham Valley will be laid out before you. So all in all, a myriad of very tempting reasons any couple would enjoy their time in this beautiful part of the world immensely.Get the full listing »
