Gorgeous, fresh cottage which is so thoughtfully designed and decorated in a great location with inspiring snowy views closeby.
We explored the Keswick Christmas Market and serene Derwentwater, went for long walks in the crisp air then used the cottage's cosy wood burner.
Haystacks: next to the pub, next to serious coffee and cake... next to heaven!
A beautifully kept cottage. Same treats as available in Swinside Farm House Bed and Breakfast. Jo as always helpful and welcoming. We are in process of planning our next stay
We have had a wonderful week at Haystacks although the weather was rainy it was so lovely to come back home to this cosy, lovely house, the location was great for walks from the door and there was a choice of local pubs we preferred the Coledale Inn. We will hopefully go back soon.
Haystacks was a perfect base for our family for the two weeks we spent there in July 2017. The cottage was lovely, very comfortable and extremely well located: the fells, pubs, and facilities of Keswick were on our doorstep. Jo was always very friendly and glad to help or give useful info when we spoke to her on the phone, and when we met her at the pub (the Swinside Inn) on our way back from Catbells! Staying at Haystacks also gave us 10% off pub meals, which enabled us to enjoy the Royal Oak, the Coledale Inn, and the Swinside Inn. All in all, a perfect base to explore the north-western lakes.
A fantastic long weekend at Haystacks. We tend to stay further South when visiting the Lakes but have been totally won over. The cottage is conveniently located near to the A66 with easy access to Keswick, as well as being not far from popular areas to the South. My husband is a keen mountain biker and had some excellent routes on the doorstep to keep him happy.
The cottage itself is excellently equipped - the kitchen in particular had everything you could need. The bedrooms and bathroom were lovely, modern and comfortable. Definitely top of our list for our next return trip, hopefully soon!
