Had a wonderful New Year. We will be back with our dogs. Lovely property with loads of room, very warm and cosy with fantastic views. Enjoyed The Pheasant Inn
Benson - December 2016
The Hayloft is a luxury holiday cottage in the South Lake District, converted from a centuries-old limestone barn, in the stunning Lake District Cartmel Peninsula.
It has won several Visit England Gold Awards (4 Stars) and retains many original features, high quality facilities and decoration, and is perfect for romantic breaks or family holidays. Pets are welcome. The Hayloft sleeps 6 plus a small sofa bed.
Downstairs is a well-equipped oak kitchen and open-plan dining area with large oak table, leading to a centrally-heated hardwood conservatory with sofas and TV. An oak and iron staircase leads to a galleried lounge with window seats for views towards Morecambe Bay. There are 2 sprung sofas (one is a sofa bed), a SMART TV and stone fireplace with gas fire.
There are 3 bedrooms; a downstairs bedroom with Antique Victorian double bed, a pretty upstairs double and a cosy twin bedroom. Both bathrooms have towel rails and lots of hot water; a ground-floor shower room features a wider pentangle enclosure, and the upstairs bathroom has a corner bath.
The fully enclosed garden features a lawn, pergola and wall fountain and parking for 2 cars, along with a stone stable converted into a Laundry and Games Room, equipped with table tennis, table football and darts.
In the immediate area, The Pheasant Inn has an open fire and dogs welcome and is minutes from The Hayloft, as is ‘The Cumbria Coastal Way’. This leads to nearby Humphrey Head National Nature Reserve and the rich birdlife of Morecambe Bay.
Within 2 miles is picturesque Cartmel, famous for its Priory, horse racing, Sticky Toffee Pudding and L’Enclume, the Michelin-Starred Restaurant of celebrity Chef, Simon Rogan. Also 5 minutes away is Grange-over-Sands, a famous Edwardian seaside resort with promenade, ornamental gardens, shops and cafes and also beautiful Holker Hall.
The foot of Lake Windermere and routes into the Central Lakes are within 10 minutes. There are also plenty of shopping and cultural opportunities in the nearby towns of Kendal, Ulverston and Barrow-in-Furness.
