The Hayloft - Cumrew House, Cumrew, Brampton, Cumbria

Nestled within the picturesque Eden Valley, The Hayloft stands as a hidden gem in the Lake District. This splendid abode is part of the grounds of a Grade II listed Georgian Manor House, welcoming visitors with open arms to a world of tranquillity and comfort.

As you cross the threshold of The Hayloft, a bright terracotta-tiled entrance hall greets you through double glass doors. This warm reception boasts an array of brass pegs for hanging your coats and a slatted bench for the convenience of donning or removing your hiking boots after an adventurous day. An adjoining utility room comes replete with a toilet, washing machine, and tumble dryer, ensuring practicality and ease. For those inclined towards a game of tennis, rackets and tennis balls are discreetly stowed away in a cupboard beneath the stairs.

Ascending the stairs, you'll encounter a spacious, beautifully beamed living area. The well-appointed kitchen features a dishwasher, fridge, microwave, cooker, and an assortment of utensils for your stay, even including a cake tin for the aspiring bakers. A pair of bar stools at the dining side of the work unit encourage communal cooking and a shared culinary experience. The centrepiece of this open-plan room is a large extendable dining table, surrounded by comfortable dining chairs. At the far end of this welcoming space, a pre-lit woodburner takes centre stage, enveloped by plush sofas and a low coffee table. Modern amenities are at your fingertips, including a flat screen TV with a DVD player and an iPod dock with a CD player. Super-fast fibre broadband Wi-Fi extends throughout The Hayloft for seamless connectivity.

Continuing through a snug area and down a beamed corridor, you'll find two double bedrooms. Both rooms feature super-king beds that can be easily converted into twins, ensuring a restful night's sleep. The bathrooms adjoining these bedrooms are adorned with chequer-floored elegance and stocked with fresh white towels, with one offering a shower and the other a bath for your bathing preferences.

For leisure, a fully refurbished tennis court awaits your enjoyment, promising hours of active recreation. The walled garden, with its vibrant charm, provides a peaceful haven for savouring a glass of wine. Listen to the soothing hum of bees, now in their second year of honey production at Cumrew House. In this garden, four raised beds flourish with a variety of vegetables, and a help-yourself policy allows you to enjoy the season's bountiful fruits and vegetables.

When it's time for provisions, Brampton, just 6 miles away, offers a range of shopping opportunities, including excellent local butchers and a well-stocked Co-op.
