The Hayloft description

Holiday home
The Hayloft is a welcoming, terraced barn conversion set on the same site as the owner's home and Bed and Breakfast in Alston, Cumbria. With two ground floor bedrooms and a bathroom, the property can sleep up to four people. There's also an open plan living area on the first floor, with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with open fire. Outside, there is a patio with furniture enjoying charming countryside views, along with off road parking for two cars. The Hayloft is a comfortable and welcoming holiday home in a great location for discovering Cumbria.

Alston is set in the North Pennines in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by a unique landscape of moorland, hills, rivers and waterfalls, and is England's highest market town. With the drive along the A686 recognised by the AA as one of the world's best drives, and northern Cumbria, County Durham and Northumberland, all within easy reach, this makes a superb base.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

The hayloft was warm and comfortable and the owners were very welcoming.. We had lovely scenery but sadly due to the weather we couldn't go very far which was disappointing as my partner and myself had planned to take our dog on plenty of long walks. The hot tub was amazing and we will defintely be going back next year. Highly recommended

We had a great time at The Hayloft, from start to finish it was just perfect with an added bonus of the hot tub! Near to local shops/pubs/restaurants and lots of walking can be done also! We managed to have a lovely relaxed week away which has done us the world of good! The owners of the cottages are lovely and made sure we had everything we needed which was a lovely touch!

Very helpful owner, has the balance just right, they were there if we needed anything (more black bin liners, local information etc) but otherwise it was like being in our own place.. Stunning views, and really comfortable.

Great place to stay and handy for travel to surrounding points of interest.. As a biker, the location is ideal with fantastic roads and scenery. The cottage had everything we needed and although not luxurious, it represented great value for money and was also spotlessly clean. Mr. Younger was very welcoming and informative. Recommended.

Overall everything was fine and the hot tub a huge bonus , the only thing I could say to improve things is to have at least one mirror near a electric socket for hair drying ..

The cottage and hot tub was lovely, in a beautiful setting in Alston, Cumbria.. I think your website should let people know it is in the middle of nowhere with very little to do unless you travel 30+ miles. Other than that it is great if you want peace and quiet, great for walkers but not with 2 bored children after the novelty of the hot tub wore off!

What can I say about The Hayloft? ?? Absolutely brilliant!! The hospitality of the owners was 1st class. The cottage was always warm, very clean, Spacious & comfortable with utilities so u need for nothing The hot tub was fantastic until u get out then it's a quick run back to our home away from home ( well we would go in in February lol) Our boxer Georgie loved it here & settled into his new surroundings immediately ( normally he doesn't eat for a day on other holidays) & his new love now is a open fire! All this is surrounded by beautiful countryside & short drive to Penrith, Carlise, Keswick & Hexham of the places we visited We will definitely be booking again

The property was fine, but the shower did not work, you were either frozen or boiled.. I feel the resident owners were neglectful in this matter as the problem was highlighted to them by previous guests in their visitor book. We are familiar with this particular shower at home, so feel their excuses of water pressure and "no one else has complained" we're a bit lame. For the weekly fee paid, I would have liked more respect as a paying guest. The owners were both very nice and pleasant, but complacent in providing this basic facility.
