    “Peace and Birdsong”

    We booked this first floor apartment a while ago and had not expected that I would be on crutches due to an ankle injury. However the stairs were not too many or too steep although some may find the cobbles a little tricky. We did have an initial problem with the hot water but helpful staff explained how to get the system working and things went well.

    We booked this first floor apartment a while ago and had not expected that I would be on crutches due to an ankle injury. However the stairs were not too many or too steep although some may find the cobbles a little tricky. We did have an initial problem with the hot water but helpful staff explained how to get the system working and things went well. This property suits those of us who like things quiet and gentle, the garden leads down to the lake and birdsong stats the day and ends the evening: owls, cuckoo and woodpecker. The hotel bar means everyone can have an evening drink and the Kings Head is just down the drive and serves good food. The property is well situated for exploring the Lake District without the crowds

The property

The Hayloft one-bedroom first-floor apartment is part of Dale Head Hall, a converted Victorian coach house in the Lake District, situated beside Lake Thirlmere and a brief 5-minute drive from Keswick village.

Surrounded by expansive garden grounds, and the stunning Lake Thirlmere, this converted Victorian Coach House retains many of its original features, such as open wood beams, exposed brickwork, and round windows, giving it a genuine sense of cottage character and charm.

The Hayloft is an ideal holiday home for couples seeking a cosy and romantic escape at any time of year.

The Hayloft is comprised of a softly lit, open plan lounge/diner featuring open wood beams and high ceilings, where guests can enjoy intimate meals, sitting next to a large round window with exposed brickwork, looking out onto a cobbled and flowered courtyard.

Guests can also cosy up in front of the TV to watch a movie, or relax listening to some music using the provided CD player.

There is a fully equipped kitchen, with everything needed for self-catering and modern living.

One double bedroom presented with warm and inviting decor offers couples a comfortable space to retire and rest. The Hayloft opens out onto a cobbled and flowered yard, which is surrounded by impeccably maintained gardens adorned by lush foliage and offering outdoor seating with parasols.

These shared gardens lead down to Lake Thirlmere which provides a dramatic and stunning backdrop of natural beauty. Local amenities are close by with a wide selection of shops, restaurants, cafes, and pubs to be found in the village of Keswick which is just a short five-minute drive away. Dale Head Hall is a great base from which guests can explore and experience the world-renowned sites of natural beauty to be found in the Lake District National Park.

The shores of Lake Thirlmere are just yards away, and the dramatic Helvellyn is within walking distance.
