The Hayloft is 1200m above sea level, south-facing and stands in about two acres of its own meadowland. The property is bordered by a trout stream and is very quiet; it has its own private access track and there is NO passing traffic. We have a superb outdoor hot tub for you to use. The house boasts stunning mountain views (over 3,600m) in every direction, clear views of glaciers and a magnificent waterfall. The Hayloft is about 1 mile from the centre of the village of Kandersteg in the Bernese Oberland. Kandersteg is a rural working village but has a parallel tourist-based economy. The village has all the expected range of facilities without losing its unique Swiss atmosphere.

The highlight of our trip to Kandersteg was Kerry and Peter. Followed by there amazing bed and breakfast. Our room was just filled with loving details. (Lampe out of a cow bell) I never experienced such a heartwarming hospitality in a bed and breakfast. I really felt like we

Without a doubt the best place we stayed on our trip. Our family of four stayed with Peter and Kerry for two nights and wish we would have stayed longer. We stayed in the Hayloft (family style room) and it worked great for a family. We chose to do the family style meal only one

Well, where do I start. This is a real gem of a place. A perfect location with incredible views. Amazing host(s), we only met Peter as his wife was away. He was full of great stories and a hive of information on things to do and places to go. Breakfast was a real treat with

I'm not sure where to start I have too many good things to say about this place. We arrived by car (on the train, which was fantastic but that's another review) and it was very easy to find with our sat nav. Equally it would have been an easy walk from the train station. We

I agree with Jackie about the distance to the Oeschinensee gondola. If you want to up into the mountains for hiking there is a cable car about two minutes from the Hayloft. If you have a vehicle there is also a car train through the mountain to Loetschental. That is a small valley with old villages that are worth seeing. It is a beautiful valley and the hosts at the Hayloft can tell you all about it.
