The Hayloft is a perfect hub for family gatherings or a beautiful romantic retreat! It has several VisitEngland Gold Awards for outstanding quality and cleanliness to add to its 4-Star rating, and sleeps 6 plus 1 in a sofa bed. On arrival, it feels like you are walking into a home-from-home, which is kept in fantastic condition! The Hayloft is a limestone threshing barn, lovingly converted by the Owner after being owned by generations of her family, and retains many features including oak beams, stonework and owl holes. It has luxury soft furnishings, quality appliances, endless facilities and exudes peace and tranquility. On entering, the stunning Cumbrian green slate floor leads past the handcrafted, oak staircase to a central farmhouse kitchen with oak dining table, chairs, and a rocking chair. The open kitchen is a 'cooks kitchen', with black granite worktops, an induction hob, fan oven, integrated fridge and Bosch dishwasher. A fully-heated, slate roofed oak Conservatory is attached, with Laura Ashley and John Lewis sofas, TV, bookcase and views over the garden towards Humphrey Head Nature Reserve in Morecambe Bay. On the ground-floor, there is a lovely antique Victorian double bed and power shower room. The oak and iron staircase, made in the village, leads to a galleried lounge with window seats to take in views of Morecambe Bay. There is a stone-built fireplace with gas fire, SMART TV and DVD and two high-quality sofas (one is a sofa bed) and lots of lovely decorative furnishings. Leading off is a cosy twin bedroom and a further double - all beds are high quality and have Egyptian Cotton bed linen - and there is endless hot water for the corner bath in the family bathroom and heated towel rails with fluffy towels. The Hayloft welcomes 2 pets, and the garden is fully enclosed. It features lawn, borders, a pergola and wall fountain and a trough in the Laundry Room is ideal for paw washing after walks from the door. There is a washing machine and tumble drier too. The Games Room has table-tennis, football table and darts, a drinks fridge and freezer, and is very popular with all the family. The cottage is warm, cosy and very clean, and on arrival, it is like walking into a home! It is ideally placed close to The Pheasant Inn with fire that accepts dogs, with walks from the door including the Cumbria Coastal Way and the promenade into Edwardian Grange-over-Sands or throughout the gorgeous, unspoilt Cartmel Peninsula. Lake Windermere is only 15 minutes away, with good roads to the heart of the Lakes. There are cafes, pubs, restaurants including 2 Michelin-starred L'enclume in Cartme (named the Best Restaurant in the UK)l, award-winning shops like Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding and Higginson Butchers and visitor attractions like Holker Hall within minutes. A holiday in The Hayloft can be what you make it...but whatever that is, you have a stunning home to return to, offering warmth, comfort and peace!More

Stayed many times at The Hayloft and find it a perfect place to stay for amenities, eating out and close to the main roads for exploring the Lakes throughout the year. Carrie is, at all times, extremely helpful and efficient.

About the neighbourhood
Within minutes you enter the Lake District National Park and Lake Windermere. Good roads lead within 20-30 minutes to varied cultural and shopping opportunities in Kendal, Ulverston and Barrow-in-Furness or take the train around Cumbria. Forget the car and discover the unspoilt beauty of the Cartmel Peninsula, following one of many walks passing the door. The Pheasant Inn is reached within a minute, plus the Cumbria Coastal Way to Grange-over-Sands and its Ornamental Gardens, tea-rooms and shops. Picturesque Cartmel with its Priory, racecourse and Sticky Toffee Pudding Shop is within 5 mins as is lovely Holker Hall.
Getting around
There is a train station at Kents Bank within a mile, a taxi service within the village or others nearby, hourly buses to Kendal and Ulverston but car offers you the best and flexible alternative. There is plenty of storage if you have bikes!
