The Property

An outstanding first floor barn conversion, situated on a working farm in the Newlands Valley, five miles from Keswick. The Hayloft is one of our premier Keswick cottages and is situated in some of the finest countryside in the whole of Lakeland; from its position on the fell it commands the most awe-inspiring views of the valley and the surrounding fells, making it an ideal base for couples looking to enjoy this beautiful area. This quality Lakeland cottage has been fully renovated to provide first class, contemporary holiday accommodation with much character and style, still retaining many of the barn's original features such as old beams and the original window reveals. This Lake District cottage boasts a beautiful open plan living area with a warm and cosy woodburning stove, a modern well-equipped kitchen and lovely feature windows to take advantage of the spectacular views of the fells. The bedrooms in this Lake District cottage are located at either end of the living area and contain splendid super king-size, zip and link beds, along with superb en-suite facilities. Outside, a lovely Lakeland cottage garden adds the final piece to this delightful Lake District cottage. With great walks from the doorstep, including the Newlands Horseshoe, a five-hour walk with breathtaking views of Skiddaw and Blencathra, this is a perfect destination for those who love the great outdoors. Just a couple of miles from your Lake District cottage the village of Braithwaite offers traditional old pubs and well-stocked village shops and the lovely old Lakeland town of Keswick, with its many attractions, is just a short drive away.

About the location

NEWLANDS

Keswick 5 miles.

Newlands is a classic unspoilt hamlet in the farming Newlands Valley, and an historic route over the pass (hause) into Buttermere. Farms are scattered throughout the valley with Stair and Little Town being the main settlements. The Newlands Valley is an excellent base for a walking holiday, with a huge variety of walking routes, including low level valley walks, ridge walks and fell walks. The area is also well known for its links with Beatrix Potter; “The Tale of Mrs Tiggywinkle'' uses the Newlands Valley as its backdrop and Catbells, Skelgill and Little Town can all be recognised from her sketches. Nearby, the small village of Braithwaite retains much of its traditional appeal, with the Coledale Beck running through the village with its whitewashed cottages, two shops and two real ale inns. Nearby, Bassenthwaite Lake is one of the most picturesque places in England. Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the lake with an open-air theatre is well worth a visit, along with Trotters Farm and Dodd Wood. Derwentwater, and Keswick with its wide range of attractions, are also within easy reach.
