  • “Just had the most amazing week at the Hayloft.”

    The scenery was stunning and the cottage was so beautiful. Just outside the front door was a lovely garden area with a picnic table, the perfect place for breakfast. The cottage itself was gorgeous. On the outside a lovely old building with all the original charm, that fits perfectly in the farm valley setting, on the inside completely modern and comfortable, with features I wish I had in my own home!

    The scenery was stunning and the cottage was so beautiful. Just outside the front door was a lovely garden area with a picnic table, the perfect place for breakfast. The cottage itself was gorgeous. On the outside a lovely old building with all the original charm, that fits perfectly in the farm valley setting, on the inside completely modern and comfortable, with features I wish I had in my own home! Lovely decor as well, and spotlessly clean throughout. The owner Fiona was so kind and helpful and gave great advice on local hiking places. It really is a hiking mecca and I loved being able to go on so many excellent hikes straight from the front door without having to drive anywhere. I did also drive around to see the sights of the Lake District, a gorgeous area, but found nothing half so beautiful as the Hayloft site itself and the surrounding hills. Really liked that each bedroom had its own private bath with shower and that the kitchen was so well supplied, with the nicest little built-in fridge and even a dishwasher. I even found olive oil in the cabinet, a real treat since I had forgotten to buy any for cooking. And so nice to have laundry facilities, the washer and dryer were modern and easy to figure out how to use. The place is very secluded and private yet is actually quite close to Keswick, where I went for grocery shopping and for a bus tour. I also really enjoyed that the Hayloft is on a working farm, so fun to see lambs and calves out the window in the morning, and to see the dogs at work.

The property

A cosy first floor barn conversion, situated on a thriving farm in the Newlands Valley, five miles from the hamlet of Keswick.

Commanding stunning vistas across the valley, this premier cottage benefits from being situated in an awe-inspiring location with lots of surrounding fells, making it a superb base for ramblers or those simply wanting a taste of this beautiful area.

As soon as you enter this Lakeland cottage you will notice the high quality renovations, packed with character and style while still retaining many of the barns traditional features through the original window reveals and old beams.

The snug sitting room area welcomes your return after a tiring day of exploring, complete with an alluring woodburner and set of leather sofas.

The contemporary kitchen is fitted with integrated appliances and feature windows, offering you a well-equipped setup that benefits from stunning fell views.

The two bedrooms in the Hayloft are positioned at either end of the open plan living area and both contain super king-size beds with en-suite facilities, enhancing the quality of your stay.

Stepping out of the cottage you are faced with Lake District at your doorstep, offering miles of unspoilt countryside that can even be explored alongside your dog!

The village of Braithwaite can be reached in a short 2 mile journey, by car or foot - if you’re feeling adventurous - and offers traditional old pubs and village shops for everyday essentials.

Further afield rests the unspoilt hamlet of Keswick with its attractions such as Pencil Museum and its connections with Beatrix Potter.

Book this serene hideaway for your next escape to the Lake District.

About the location

NEWLANDS

Keswick 5 miles.

Newlands is a classic unspoilt hamlet in the farming Newlands Valley, and an historic route over the pass (hause) into Buttermere. Farms are scattered throughout the valley with Stair and Little Town being the main settlements. The Newlands Valley is an excellent base for a walking holiday, with a huge variety of walking routes, including low level valley walks, ridge walks and fell walks. The area is also well known for its links with Beatrix Potter; “The Tale of Mrs Tiggywinkle'' uses the Newlands Valley as its backdrop and Catbells, Skelgill and Little Town can all be recognised from her sketches. Nearby, the small village of Braithwaite retains much of its traditional appeal, with the Coledale Beck running through the village with its whitewashed cottages, two shops and two real ale inns. Nearby, Bassenthwaite Lake is one of the most picturesque places in England. Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the lake with an open-air theatre is well worth a visit, along with Trotters Farm and Dodd Wood. Derwentwater, and Keswick with its wide range of attractions, are also within easy reach.
