General Description

The Hayloft at Linbeck is a two bedroom cottage with one of the most stunning views in England.

The main living quarters (kitchen, lounge, bedroom) are situated on the first floor, accessed from steps at the rear of the property and also an internal staircase. The open-plan layout feels spacious, social and full of original character.  The facilities suit a taller person as the ceilings are vaulted, just mind the 2 beams.  There is also a longer bed to make sure that you have a restful sleep without having to cope with feet hanging out the end!

The oak and slate-furnished kitchen contains a split level electric oven, four-ring electric hob, microwave, dishwasher and a large American-style fridge-freezer. The dining table seats up to six guests. Two two-seater leather sofas provide the comfort, while a separate three-seater can be used as a sofa bed (on request), increasing the sleeping capacity to six people. The smart TV has a facility to login to your Netflix or Prime accounts. There is a separate WC, as well as an abundance of books and games.

The double bedroom on the first floor features a fabulous four-poster-bed. The bedroom has an en suite bathroom with a walk-in shower, heated towel rail, WC and washbasin. Scafell Pike can be seen from the bedroom on a clear day.

Downstairs, on the ground floor, is a second double bedroom suitable for guests with reduced mobility.  The bed in this room is a unique bespoke bed that is 7' 3" long by 5' wide to cater for the taller person.  It has been made out of wood that was grown and felled here at Linbeck.  The room also has a large smart TV, two external doors and a huge walk-in wardrobe. The en suite bathroom has a low entry shower, heated towel rail, WC and washbasin.

In terms of the cottage's suitability for people with reduced mobility, there is access to the ground floor bedroom via a flat threshold (with a small lip); the ground floor bathroom is en suite and has a low entry shower; the living area and kitchen can be accessed via an inside staircase that has a handrail. The owner has a wheelchair and a toilet raiser for loan upon request.

A washing machine and tumble dryer can be found in the stable (ground floor, outside), along with a Belfast sink, perfect for rinsing off muddy outdoor gear. Bicycles can be stored here or locked securely in the workshop.

There is space for parking up to two cars next to The Hayloft and the garden is shared with the friendly owners, who live next door.
