A lovely cosy little cottage in a lovely location - perfect

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hayloft, a lovely cosy little cottage in the tiny village of Outgate.

Well situated as a base for a holiday in the Lake District away from the busy towns. Situated next to a road but this wasn't too busy.

Nice walks in the surrounding countryside and to Hawkshead, the nearest town of any size with shops, chemist, pubs, cafes etc.

The nearby pub the Outgate Inn serves very good food.

The cottage was small but ideal for 2 people. Very clean and modern inside. Good large screen TV.

The only minor problem we had was with the wifi, which was intermittent at best (both our phones had trouble connecting and would be randomly disconnected) and on some days didn't work at all - I expect this was due to it being shared with the nearby cottage The Peacocks, however the signal wasn't strong or reliable enough at the Hayloft. The unreliable wifi was more of an issue than it would normally have been due to there being no mobile phone signal there either.

In spite of this we still had a fabulous time for our anniversary in a lovely little cottage in a lovely location.

Brief review of Hayloft

  • 4 of 5

Our visit to the lakes was most extensive, travelling from the south coast we tried to fit in a broad cross section of the whole area,as we may never manage to come again,hence the central location we chose.A trip on the lakes plus a couple of crossings on the windermere ferry were included in our tour!
