    “The Hayloft was an ideal location for us to meet other family members who were nearby.”

    The only real disappointment was the hard beds and pillows, particularly the kingsize and double beds. I would have expected additional pillows to be available as all our family prefer to have 2 pillows each. However, we did request a pillow and the owner gave us one immediately (pity we had to ask). The facilities generally were good, although a dishwasher would have been nice, as they have been available in other Sykes Cottages we have stayed at. Parking was also a little difficult as next door had 2 cars on the driveway, there needs to be a clearly defined parking area for residents of the Hayloft. We were fortunate with the weather, but had there been heavy rain it would have been difficult to dry clothes as the tumble drier was "out of order". The issues mentioned did not stop us from having a really splendid 4 day holiday.

About the location


Bassenthwaite Lake 7 miles; Keswick 13 miles.

The small country market town of Cockermouth is situated in the quiet north-western part of the Lake District, a largely undiscovered and unspoilt area, yet only 13 miles from Keswick. The town is famous as the birthplace of both William Wordsworth and Fletcher Christian (of Mutiny on the Bounty fame) and Wordsworth’s Georgian family home, on the main street, is now a popular visitor attraction, owned by the National Trust. Cockermouth offers a good variety of shops, pubs and places to eat, but (of course) the main attraction of the area is the beautiful scenery and excellent walking in the northern lakes – Bassenthwaite Lake, Ennerdale Water and Derwent Water.
