About the property

sleeping two near Ambleside allowing pets

Beautifully placed only a mile from Hawkshead and just 3 miles from Ambleside. The Hayloft is the perfect couple retreat for you to relax, unwind and enjoy your visit to the Lake District.Many walks can begin and end from The Hayloft's doorstep and many local attractions including Wray Castle, Beatrix Potters home and Lake Windermere are all only a short drive away. The traditional Outgate Inn is a two minute walk away serving excellent food and drink all year round meaning you don't even have to cook. The Hayloft sits just back from the country road enjoying views of the fields opposite. The Hayloft has recently undergone a complete refurbishment from top to bottom and boasts solid oak flooring throughout, a small but well equipped kitchen and a new shower room just off the double bedroom. Outside to the rear of The Hayloft is a cottage style garden with patio area and outside seating.

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!

Lovely cottage and a great area!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage within a great area. The pub next door was perfect for food and drink and allows dogs in too.

Would recommend!

Perfect Lake District Walking Base

  • 4 of 5

A newly decorated compact property, spotlessly clean in an ideal location to walk from and explore the Lake District. A short walk to the lake and water taxi to Ambleside. Close to a dog friendly, walkers pub, serving good food. Off road parking.

Would benefit from improved WiFi (a booster) given the lack of network signal, just to keep in touch with family while away. Standing in the garden to connect from time to time is not the most convenient.

Would happily recommend and stay again.

Owner's Response: Good afternoon John. Thank you for your great review of you stay at The Hayloft. I'm really sorry about the internet problems it was note by myself a few weeks ago. I have actually got a engineer here today boosting the whole system across The Hayloft and Peacock Cottage. If you do decide to stay with us again the internet should be working fine. Thanks again for great review. Adam Wilkin Lakeland Retreats

Cosy cottage, beautiful scenery and walks on your doorstep

  • 5 of 5

Lovely touch to arrive to prosecco, coffee and cookies with a welcome message. Cottage was immaculately clean and facilities good, although no microwave. Agents were very responsive to us and gave good directions how to find the cottage. Cottage is small but fine for 2. Pictures don't really do it justice it's lovely. Small enclosed garden at the back which we could let our dog off while we sat and relaxed outside. It is right next door to the Outgate Inn pub where food was delicious. Beautiful walks from the doorstep of the cottage and amazing scenery. Would definitely come again! Only downside was wifi did not work at all for our stay.
