    We really enjoyed our stay at the Hayloft, and the only negatives we could really point to are that, firstly, the cottage is not ideal for dogs. With nearby sheep and the owners dog often outside, taking our dogs for a toilet break was difficult. We had to put them on a lead and take them round the back to the small fenced off garden area. It wasn't clear from the description that we would need to do this, and in fact it was pictured to appear as though a door would open from the cottage into the garden area. Unfortunately this wasn't the case. The thing that probably took away from our stay the most though was the temperature. It was absolutely freezing no matter the time of the day, and unless you had every radiator and electric heater blasting constantly, you could not maintain a nice temperature. Immersion heater, even if left on for an hour or more, only provides about 5 minutes of hot water for a shower at most. Those points aside, the Hayloft really is a lovely, quaint place to stay. The area and the views from our front windows were stunning and the owners very hospitable. The kitchen was very well equipped and it was very thoughtful of the owners to have left a bottle of wine for us upon arrival. All in all, we would probably stay here again, but without the dogs, and certainly during the summer!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We appreciate your comments on your enjoyable stay at the lovely and quaint Hayloft, its stunning surroundings and our hospitality - reflected in the visitor’s book by most of our guests and their dogs. We’re really sorry you felt your dogs had a rough deal. Although we do not insist on leads and trust owners to have both proper control of their dogs around the property and minimise toilet breaks in the garden areas, the Agency’s booking conditions do state … “you must keep dogs on a lead within the boundaries of a property (including the garden)”. With sheep in all the fields and hills around us, we support the advice from the Lake District National Park and the police that “unless you can rely on your dog’s obedience, it’s probably best to keep it on a lead. It is an offence to allow a dog to worry livestock and it could be shot by the farmer”. The property is also advertised as being on a farm with pet sheep. Not being on a ’mains’ water supply and the minor irritation of low water pressure from our private supply into the hot water tank, is outlined in the cottage information folder, it would explain on this occasion your experience of the hot water running out temporarily after a long shower. Also in the folder, guests are encouraged to be in charge of their own electricity use so the means are there for guests to stay warm and comfortable as they see fit.

    WE enjoyed our holiday in this lovely spot. Owners were friendly and helpful. Cottage was basic as expected from the details we read. Probably could do with upgrading a bit now.
