If you like beautiful countryside, walking, or snuggling up in front of a wood stove: this is the retreat for you! Comfortable & remote, with stunning views & spacious accommodation, the Hayloft is perfect for couples, families or solo adventurers.
Want a break from the neighbours? Our nearest are 2 fields away! We can leave you in peace, or help out with lifts from the train station (1 mile, Kirkby Stephen) or even cook you authentic pizza as you watch the sun set.
The Hayloft is an upside-down house, with 2 of the double bedrooms on the ground floor in order to take full advantage of the amazing views from the kitchen/sitting room. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and thoughtfully furnished. The third double bedroom is in the loft, reached by a steep staircase (like on a boat). It has a balcony overlooking the open plan sitting room. There is a large wood-burning stove, and underfloor heating throughout the property.
Serveis i zones comuns
You have your own front door, and outside space, and are welcome to make use of the picnic table, rope swings, and trampoline. You can walk in all directions from the house. Wild Boar Fell is about a mile away, a spectacular climb. There are some great pubs close by.
We grow fruit and vegetables, and you're welcome to sample these if in season. When our hens are laying, we will provide you with some delicious, yellow-yolked free range fresh eggs.

We are usually available 24 hours a day, but we'll leave you in peace unless you request otherwise!

Please don't expect high-speed broadband. We receive it by satellite, but it's not super-fast, and can be slower towards the end of the month (when our 'unlimited' package is exceeded).
The kitchen is small. There is a beautiful built-in dresser and small sink (but there is a dishwasher). If you are looking for a sleek, steamlined kitchen with state-of-the-art cooker for elaborate cuisine, I'm afraid we cannot offer that. We are limited to electricity as there is no gas!
Please follow simple instructions for recycling. (We can't process rubbish bags containing food waste because, when we put them out to be collected by the rubbish collection, animals rip the bags open.)
Depending on the time of year, we may ask you to park your car on the field. Don't worry; we won't ask you to do this if it's muddy!
We ask guests to please tidy up after themselves, leaving the hayloft as clean and tidy as they found it. Thank you!
Our place is high and remote - very beautiful: fells, stunning views, weather. We have a self-contained, spacious annex. 3 double bedrooms (1 an attic mezzanine), shower/WC/bathroom, open-plan kitchen/dining room with large wood-burning stove. You can have complete privacy, or we can help you with breakfasts, authentic home-made pizzas, lifts to & from the train station, shop-to-order before your arrival....
If you like wild countryside, walking, hunkering down - this is a good place for you. Get in touch if you've got any questions.
