The Hayloft's Location

The Area

The Hayloft is perfectly located in the pretty village of Allithwaite, on the stunning Cartmel Peninsula in the southern Lake District, surrounded by fascinating Morecambe Bay.

Within 5 minutes, explore picturesque Cartmel, famous for its Priory, Horse Racing, Sticky Toffee Pudding and L'Enclume, the two Michelin-starred restaurant that the 2015 Good Food Guide has named the best in the UK and is owned by Celebrity Chef, Simon Rogan. Why not also visit Edwardian Grange-over-Sands, with its Seafront Promenade, Panoramic Views and Ornamental Gardens or go west to local stately home, Holker Hall?

Or take a 10-minute drive to the foot of Lake Windermere - the gateway to the mountains and lakes of the central Lake District - and to the fast routes leading to Kendal, Ulverston and Barrow-in-Furness, offering exciting cultural and shopping opportunities.

The possibilities are endless....
