Description

With stunning views over Urswick Tarn, this ‘upside-down’ barn conversion has beams and character features throughout, and is the ideal holiday destination. Whether it is peace and quiet you seek, or getting out and about in the Lakes, The Hayloft is the ideal springboard to the South Lakes Peninsula. The Hayloft is attached to the old Reading Room, which was formed soon after World War 1 as part of a network of meeting places by the charitable church (C. of E.) society, known as ‘Toc H’. This society had its origins in WW1 Belgium when a padre set up a place of refuge he named Talbot House (morse code name read as Toc H) behind the front line to give some respite to the battle weary troops.This idea took hold back in ’blighty’and spread across the country after the war, where it evolved through the decades and still survives to this day.
The Hayloft has been converted to a very good specification, making it a comfortable and enjoyable stay. There are many cycle routes and walks in the area, or if it is good food and drink you seek, then you have two pubs within 200 yards in either direction of The Hayloft. Fishing can also be enjoyed on Urswick Tarn at £10 per day. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 350 yards.

About the local area

Offering stunning views of the South Lakeland District fells and countryside, Cartmel is easily accessible, with its winding streets, pretty cottages, whitewashed houses and medieval buildings leading to the village square. The village offers visitors many modern surprises in the form of fine quality attractions, shops, and eateries.

Around the village square you will discover a delightful assortment of genuine 16th - 18th century buildings providing, as they have for centuries, friendly inns, well stocked shops and private dwellings. It is also home to Britain's smallest National Hunt racecourse and the National Trust attraction of Cartmel Priory Gatehouse, a historically important building situated in the heart of the village.

Occupying one of the most attractive spots in the area, Grange-over-Sands looks out across the expansive sands of Morecambe Bay, a rich feeding ground for many species of birds that take advantage of the great climate in the area. It is easily accessible from the Lake District (Lake Windermere is only seven miles away) and towns such as Kendal are also just a short drive from here.

There is much to do and see on the Peninsular from golf , horse riding and fishing to hot air ballooning and parachuting! There also a good number of great walks, plus many places of historical interest.
