    I stayed there on my own as a convenient base in Keswick for a trail running holiday. The Old Hayloft is perfect and fantastically well presented. Spotlessly clean and tidy. Well stocked and comfortable, plus a lovely hot shower and super warm bathroom. I would highly recommend this place. Seriously brilliant view from the front door of Skiddaw and a lovely cafe 30 seconds from the front door, chippy the same and you could go to the pub in your slippers!!! The only drawback is on Fridays and Saturdays the pub next door plays loud live music until midnight. However a decent pair of earplugs remedies that perfectly, and the music isn’t too bad!! I wasn’t too bothered. I had one hiccup in the flat and it was sorted the next day promptly with minimum inconvenience, so very good customer service. If I have one minor issue it was the water tank, it makes a bit of a noise around 1:30am and woke me a few times, but it really was a minor issue, depends how lightly you sleep. All in all I had a lovely, comfortable holiday with easy, friendly, prompt customer service. Will definitely be back with my partner next time. Thanks for a fun week.
