“Immaculate cottage with everything you would need in perfect location for all ages”
Reviewed 16 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We stayed with our family including grandsons of 7 and 4.
Great having a garden to play and sit.
Beautifully decorated and furnished with huge beds and adult-sized bunk beds. Well equipped with lots of extras.
Play area 2 minutes down lane (next to school).
Made great use of buses - 77, 77A, X5 come through the village. Get a timetable from Keswick Tourist information.
Lots of walks from the door.
If wet - Kong Centre in Keswick (soft/hard play area, cave and climbing walls - take torch) and Keswick pool (get timetable).
We'd stay at Haystacks again.

“Wonderful cottage, great location!”
Reviewed 1 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Haystacks is now part of our handful of amazing cottages to stay in the lakes! Such a fantastic place to stay with beautiful decor, all the amenities you need and more, along with a lovely garden area to relax. The friendly owner is at hand if needed and the little touches like wine, biscuits, milk etc on arrival was a great touch!

Such a relaxing stay and I would highly recommend it to others.

“Beautiful cottage”
Reviewed 15 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Gorgeous cottage, immaculate inside, has all you could need (including washing machine, dishwasher etc) lovely log burner, super-comfortable beds, handy location for Keswick and the mountains, lovely local shop and handy pub (50 yards or so away). Helpful owner- couldn't fault it. We'll be back.

“Amazing Haystacks ”
Reviewed 4 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We stayed over the New Year break with six adults slightly worried with how cosy the cottage would be however perfect size it is the most homely felt cottage we have stayed in, dinning area slightly tight but very manageable. The location was perfect, you are literally on the doorstop to two friendly village pubs with fab pub food. The fireworks on New Year's Eve were amazing some of the best we have seen. Lots of walks around the area with no need to even get in the car. Local village shop brill a tad expensive but what you would expect. Christmas decorations and games a lovely touch, couldn't resist a game of family monopoly. Very well kitted out. Will definitely recommend and stay again. Thanks again,

“STACKS OF CHARM”
Reviewed 12 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Our delightfully cosy stay in Haystacks was simply perfect. The cottage looked brand new and there were many tasteful decorations, a lovely Christmas tree and a beautiful silver/grey theme inside. We made good use of the log burner and had an excellent nights' sleep.
We've been to the North Lakes on several occasions and this was such a peaceful stay.
Until next time...
