About the Owner

My name is Carrie Tomlinson. I was born in Allithwaite, and spent my early years on Yew Tree Farm, when The Hayloft was used for storing hay, straw and mangols. This 20-acre small-holding was farmed by my father and has been in my family for over 150 years! In 1999, having accepted that the barn was falling apart, my sister and I decided to convert it into cottages. As a retired Engineer, my Father became a very hands-on Project Manager, bringing in local skills when needed. When I describe that The Hayloft is a 'home from home', it is!

Coast/Beach:

Morecambe Bay can be seen from The Hayloft. It is reached within a 5-minute drive or a lovely walk from the door along the Cumbria Coastal Way. It is very close to the Humphrey Head, now a National Nature Reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest;it is only one of two sea cliffs in Cumbria, with the other at St Bees Head in the west. The beaches comprise of sand, pebbles and marsh and are great for exploring.

Travel:

Train station at Grange-over-Sands connects at Lancaster to main West Coast line or at Carnforth to go east to Leeds. Manchester airport is 1 hour 15 minutes by car although there are direct trains to and from Grange. There is a smaller station at Kents Bank. Car use is recommended but not essential as there are buses. Car Hire is located in Cartmel nearby or Kendal, Ulverston, Barrow and Lancaster (easy for train arrivals).

Distances:

The Hayloft is at the southern outer edge of Allitwaite, within a minute of The Pheasant Inn. The village has a Post Office and Shop, a great second hand shop and another pub, Jakkers. Cartmel has the famous Sticky Toffee Pudding Shop and other delicatessen shops. Grange-over-Sands has a Spar and Coop, an award-winning butcher and lots of cafes. Kendal has an Asda (within 20 mins), Lancaster a Sainsbury's and Barrow has a Tesco who all deliver plus Booths in Ulverston.

Further Details:

Holker Hall is a beautiful, historic stately home and major landowner in the Cartmel Peninsula. It has a website and events. L'Enclume is a Michelin-starred restaurant in Cartmel and attracts celebrities and gastronomes alike. Cartmel is also famous for Horse racing and its 11th Century Priory. The Lakeland Fells are seen from the village and offer many opportunities and kids will love Ducky Park Farm in the next village of Flookburgh. Swimming is available in the Grange hotels but otherwise there is everything you could need within 30 minutes in the main towns. Our website lists major local events but there is something throughout the year, and the area is very keen on promoting outdoor adventure and food!

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: The Hayloft has been awarded 4 stars by VisitEngland. It has received a Gold Award for the 6th year, and all furnishings and equipment are kept up-to-date and clean. Repeat bookings are high as visitors say that it offers luxury yet value for money, as it is on the periphery of the Lake District National Park. Yet Lake Windermere is less than 10 minutes by car! Guests say the Cartmel Peninsula is a fantastic location as it is quieter, scenically beautiful with great restaurants and shops. Look at our visitor comments on The Hayloft website. The Owner welcomes 2 pets, which are currently included in the price, and is has been commented on that you rarely see pets welcomed to such a beautiful house! Outside: The Hayloft has a good sized, fully-enclosed garden. There are lots of paved areas, which can also accommodate 2 cars. One of the paved areas has teak furniture and cushions, and two luxury padded recliners for sunny weather. There are two stone seats in the garden, one under a pergola with Wisteria and the other between borders. There is a lawn and a lion's head fountain, completely safe as the water goes into a pebble pool. The Games and Laundry Rooms are in a converted limestone stable in the garden, next to the cottage. Utility Room: The Laundry Room has a washing machine, tumble dryer and a large trough for dog and boot washing and lots of space. Next door in the Games Room there is a drinks fridge and a freezer. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Bed linen and towels are included. The cottage has received a VisitEngland 4 star grading plus a Gold Award for 2016 for high standards of accommodation facilities and presentation. Complimentary linen change for 2-week lets.
