"Great place to stay in Lake District."
"Great location and the place is very clean, warm, well equipped, quiet and spacious."
Powerful shower with plenty of hot water and the log burner a real treat on cold autumnal evenings. Nice attention to detail from the owners, for example12 place settings for the crockery (all matching!) makes for a very comfortable and relaxing stay. Highly recommended and we will book again.
"Fantastic location and views, friendly host, the cottage had everything you would need and then some."
We found the king size bed rather firm and unsupportive for us and the shower very enclosed for a 6ft 2” teenager but will definitely go back. The outside space was brilliant for all the family.
"This is the third time staying at Hayloft Cottage."
The cottage was comfortable and had everything we needed. The owners are very welcoming and an added bonus was the glorious weather. We will be back.
Very well maintained and spotlessly clean. Perfect location too, as you don’t need to travel far to find places to visit in Cumbria and the Lake District. Everything was as described, so it definitely didn’t disappoint. Would recommend this cottage without hesitation.
"We had a really enjoyable stay."
There was nothing we would change. The kitchen was really well equipped so made self catering easy. The owner was lovely and it was so nice to find milk and eggs In the fridge. Hope to book again.
"What a fantastic property!"
, everything was just spot on, even down to the tea bags and milk in the fridge when we arrived. The property had everything we needed, perfectly located for us as not to far to travel to the centre of the lakes but yet quiet enough for us to relax in the quiet tranquil countryside. Thank you
"The cottage was perfect for us with young children (1 and 5)."
The house itself was very well equipped, important as we would be there a lot especially after the kids were in bed. And the garden was huge and very safe to allow the kids to run around. We were a short drive from the lakes and the seaside which made a lovely varied holiday. The house was very clean and nicely decorated. The owner Natalie was very friendly, thanks for the eggs!
"This is our second visit to this cottage and it didn't disappoint."
Well presented with lashings of hot water which was very well received after lots of long walks. The cottage is conveniently located near the Lake District National Park, so no long drives back. Thank you to the owners for the farm fresh eggs and milk.
"A wonderful holiday retreat, comfortable, clean and very well maintained, with all of the amenities that we wanted."
"Excellent beautiful cottage, which was very clean."
Well thought out, with stair gate incorporated and lots of toys to keep children entertained. Loved our stay, and would definitely recommend.
"The cottage was absolutely fabulous."
so much so we have booked to go again for Christmas. Would thoroughly recommend.
"We love this cottage."
We’ve stayed here twice and they have thought of everything which takes so much of the hassle out of going away. It’s perfect for familiesI and I wouldn’t hesitate to book again.
"The accommodation was very warm and comfortable."
We would certainly consider returning
So clean and well equipped. Great location to explore Lake District. First time booking with Sykes and well impressed.
"We had the most lovely time really welcoming."
Very good for little ones, my 2 year old loved watching the farm dogs and machinery from the window. Swings, toys and football was all ace too. Cant wait to come back again very soon.
"On arrival the house was well presented, tidy and had a cosy feel about it, the cottage is well placed with lovely views."
The family who own the cottage couldn't have been more accommodating and were friendly and chatty. Our only problem during our whole stay there was the lack of wifi (someone had switched off elsewhere) however this soon became a good thing because it meant the kids actually engaged with us :-)!! Couldn't have asked for a better location to explore the Lake District from and would definitely recommend the place to any other interested parties!

The Stackyard Holiday Cottages
Bolton Low Houses 1.4 miles. Idyllically situated between the stunning Lake District National Park and the Solway Plain, this cosy group of three holiday cottages sits on the owner's working livestock and arable farm, near the village of Bolton Low Houses and the town of Wigton. With fabulous views across the Cumbrian countryside, these superb cottages have been elegantly converted with every comfort in mind whilst retaining lots of original features – a gentle reminder of their former use as the farm stables. Each has been finished to a high standard, all with a cosy woodburning stove and welcoming accommodation to provide an excellent base for couples, families and friends. Carefully positioned in enclosed grounds, each comes with a private patio and lawned area, whilst there is also a shared outdoor play area for younger guests to enjoy, with plenty of space in which to run around. With a ready supply of seasonal, home-grown vegetables available fresh from the farm, you can enjoy a delicious meal in the comforts of your cosy cottage before taking a walk along the Little Waver river where you may be lucky to spot some local wildlife including badgers, foxes and red squirrels. The popular Lake District town of Keswick is a twenty minute drive away, making these super cottages a perfect base from which to explore the Northern Lake District with its breathtaking scenery and multitude of cycling paths and bridleways. The stunning Solway Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is just fifteen minutes' drive to the west, where guests can visit the Campfield Marsh RSPB nature reserve. There are also several golf courses to enjoy at Silloth and Keswick, whilst the beautiful border city of Carlisle is fifteen miles away and has a Roman Gallery at Tullie House Museum – perfect for a wet day. These Cumbrian cottages offer something for everyone at any time of the year.
About the location
BOLTON LOW HOUSES
Wigton 3 miles; Cockermouth 13 miles; Carlisle 14 miles; Keswick 18 miles.
Situated eight miles north of the Lake District National Park, the small northern fells village of Bolton Low Houses offers a pub serving good food. Only three miles away is the historic market town of Wigton. Lord Melvyn Bragg was a native of Wigton, and used the town (called Thurston in some of his writings) and the surrounding area as the setting for his novels, which include A Time to Dance. Close by, set just inside the National Park is the lovely village of Caldbeck, which is well worth a visit. The area has something for everyone, including the market town of Keswick, Lakes Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite, the Solway Coast, which is well-known for its golf courses and the town of Cockermouth, the birthplace of William Wordsworth, plus within driving distance is the cathedral city of Carlisle, Hadrian’s Wall and the Scottish Borders. Bolton Low Houses is an ideal base for exploring the area.
