“Fab, home from home. Dog owners also will love”
Reviewed 15 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Arrived with two dogs. Brilliant secure garden. Amazing house all comforts you could think of We even cooked a full turkey roast dinner. Every room was comfy enjoyed the bath as don't have one at home. also had the advantage of the second bathroom. Great for separate families with the bedroom and bathroom downstairs. Loved the garden brilliant sun trap. Even got a tan The games room is great you can hear the kids as its right next to house. Sorry to the neighbours for all the excitement. Would I go again. Definitely. Thanks to the owner for the lovely emails xx

Were glad to hear that you enjoyed The Hayloft. The space is great for dog and there are many lovely walks in the area. Were currently doing more herbaceous planting and now have a running Wall Fountain for a tranquil atmosphere that can be enjoyed from the Conservatory.. Everyone loves the Games Room! We would love to welcome you back anytime!

“Family weekend away”
Reviewed 14 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Absolutely fabulous does not do this barn conversion justice. The Hayloft was the perfect place for our (now to be annual!) family weekend away. Warm, well appointed kitchen and dining area, super bath and shower rooms and 4 really comfy beds. Cannot speak highly enough and hope to return... if Carrie will have us?

“Comfortable and clean”
Reviewed 2 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The cottage is warm and well equipped. The conservatory was particularly useful downstairs. However I felt the outside photos and cottage description were slightly misleading. The cottage is semi-detached and closely surrounded on two sides by other properties, some of which can see right into the upstairs bedroom windows. The garden is little more than a patch of grass outside the conservatory, which may be alright for a dog, but is not enough for children. The drive is accessed through two other properties, and access is rather narrow for a family sized car. Backing out on to the access road is tricky in the dark. Finally, Allithwaite is rather a dismal village in which to base a holiday, with one bare shelved Post Office/shop. The Pheasant is a nice pub but that is about it. The lack of pavements make it an unpleasant walk to the playground or to Cartmel.

I work very hard to ensure that The Hayloft maintains its Four Star Gold Award VisitEngland rating and it has just received it for 2016. The Hayloft offers value unavailable in the central Lakes and is located in a normal hillside village with an excellent pub and valuable PO/shop, but is different from its famous and expensive neighbour. Like everywhere your holiday experience will be enhanced by the weather and that is one thing we cannot control here in Cumbria. I will continue to make the best of my holiday cottage and continue to welcome back numerous repeat visitors.

“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 12 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Enjoyed a great winter break here. Plenty of space for the family in a well equipped and comfortable cottage. Great location for access to the southern Lakes and coastal area.

“Relaxing stay in a dog friendly cottage.”
Reviewed 24 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Have just spent four days at "The Hayloft". On arrival a welcome tray of tea,coffee,sugar pint of milk and biscuits was waiting in a very clean spacious dog friendly cottage. It was a very relaxing place to stay in a convenient position for visiting the Lakes, especially close to Grange and Cartmel. Very well equipped kitchen, easy to prepare a meal.
As dogs are not allowed upstairs and the lounge is upstairs we stayed downstairs and sat in the conservatory but this was very pleasant overlooking the garden, take a torch with you if you will be taking your dog as the garden is very dark in the evenings.

“Lovely cottage and dog friendly too”
Reviewed 23 October 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We have stayed in this cottage in June 2013 (as a family with dog), June/July 2014 (as a couple with dog) and we are booked for June/July 2015 (as a couple with dog).

We can't fault the cottage. The cottage is dog friendly and has an enclosed garden, perfect for dogs or children. There is also a games room - perfect for kids, or for something to do in the evening/bad weather).

The pub is a 1minute walk away (also dog friendly) - the Pheasant Inn, is the "hub of the village" the food is delicious and the staff friendly and accommodating.

The Cottage, is located about 5mins drive away from Grange Over Sands; which has a few little shops to wonder around in, or for grocery shopping.

This year (2014) we stayed for two weeks and having a proper freezer was ideal, it meant that we didn't have to go shopping regularly. The cottage also has a washing machine (ideal for those who are outdoorsy type or have kids).
