  • "Very good location in centre of town, modern and very clean."

    The car parking was also a good asset, the only negative point was the out side space. We did not want to sit outside on the landing too other properties.

  • "We had a very happy two weeks in the old hayloft which we return to year after year."

  • "Sadly the detail in access and in facilities was lacking."

    Welcome email had contradictory times. Told by agents that bollards were automated but fob was required but not were to find it. In the key press with the key. Route to parking was not up to date Rubbish disposal information was hidden in the cupboard and in the information book by other sheets.

  • "An excellent property."

    I stayed there on my own as a convenient base in Keswick for a trail running holiday. The Old Hayloft is perfect and fantastically well presented. Spotlessly clean and tidy. Well stocked and comfortable, plus a lovely hot shower and super warm bathroom. I would highly recommend this place. Seriously brilliant view from the front door of Skiddaw and a lovely cafe 30 seconds from the front door, chippy the same and you could go to the pub in your slippers!!! The only drawback is on Fridays and Saturdays the pub next door plays loud live music until midnight. However a decent pair of earplugs remedies that perfectly, and the music isn’t too bad!! I wasn’t too bothered. I had one hiccup in the flat and it was sorted the next day promptly with minimum inconvenience, so very good customer service. If I have one minor issue it was the water tank, it makes a bit of a noise around 1:30am and woke me a few times, but it really was a minor issue, depends how lightly you sleep. All in all I had a lovely, comfortable holiday with easy, friendly, prompt customer service. Will definitely be back with my partner next time. Thanks for a fun week.

    It’s a lovely little place in a great location meaning we had the perfect stay. Will definitely be booking here again!

  • "The Old Hayloft is the perfect little bolthole for week in the lakes."

    Really cosy, with everything you need. Even a great selection of games for when the weather is horrendous (like it was much of the time for us!). Living kitchen space is great and really well appointed. We definitely made the most of the coffee machine and frother for 'fancy coffee'! Perhaps the most immaculate holiday cottage I've ever been in, top marks to cleaner. We parked up a bit away and trailed our luggage in torrential rain. A note in the arrival instructions to say there is a fob to lower the barriers so you can unload in the courtyard would be the only tiny change. We made use of this packing up. A tiny thing in an otherwise perfect stay! Will definitely recommend to friends.

  • "The property is in an ideal location, lovely and modern with everything well stocked in the kitchen etc."

    . Warm and comfy just what you need after a long day's walking (often in the rain). Would definitely recommend this property and definitely looking to rebook in 2022. Thank you.

  • "We were very impressed with the refurbishment of the accommodation with the new kitchen units and carpets."

    The key safe at the door was a very good addition to the property which allowed us to leave on our final day early in the morning. This meant we didn't have to wait for the office to open and return the key and car parking voucher. We have stayed at The Old Hayloft many times and will continue to do so.

  • "We felt it was a little smaller than we expected, but was very well equipped with everything we needed to self cater and plenty of storage."

    The apartment was spotless when we arrived and we felt covid safe from the moment we entered. We found the directions to get to the apartment a little confusing as on our instructions there was no information as to where to park to unload the car. Once in the apartment this was clearly explained alongside the parking permit.

  • "This is our seventh year of returning to the old hayloft and were delighted with the new colour scheme and the new bedroom furniture the new bed was particularly comfortable."

    The cleaner needs to be congratulated on the pristine condition of the apartment. The only concern we had was the difficulty in opening the front door this is due to it rubbing on the door chill. It would benefit from a few shavings off the leading edge of the bottom of the door. We will be back next year.

  • "We had a great holiday despite the weather."

    The location is great in the middle of Keswick town centre. There was a bit of noise from people outside the pub opposite, but not enough to annoy. The lack of a car parking adjacent to the property was a slight problem, but the allocated parking a few hundred yards away wasn't too bad. Access for loading and unloading was fine. All together a lovely holiday flat.

  • "This is our fourth year of returning to the old hayloft we enjoy coming as it suits our needs."

    Staff in the office helpful the car parking at the Methodist church is very good. The mattress is extremely hard and could do with a thicker topper than the one provided. There was a dripping tap in the kitchen sink.The live music from the pack horse pub on Fridays and Saturdays disturbs sleep until one a.m. in the morning.

  • "Excellent location and value for money."

    The only downside to this holiday home was the fact that the pub across the courtyard has live entertainment three nights a week. This can go on until well after midnight. When people left by the exit where the singer was playing it was so loud that it felt they were in the same room.
