Located in the sleepy Cumbrian village of Hayton, this gorgeous home would suit families or friends looking to spend quality time together or celebrate a special occasion. Immerse yourselves in the rural tranquillity and soak up the natural beauty with long country walks from your doorstep. Situated between the Lake District National Park to the south-east and the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the west and north-west, you’ll have the best of coast and country to explore. At the end of a busy day, return home for a home-cooked feast before taking a dip in the hot tub under the starry sky.

Sympathetically restored, timeless décor reflects the property’s heritage, while bright pops of colour and clean lines add contemporary touches throughout. On entering, discard coats and shoes in the hall before heading into the charming lounge, complete with wood burner for those chilly evenings. Across the hall, you’ll find the bright, airy and spacious kitchen/diner, which affords beautiful views through the French doors. Upstairs, there are four beautiful bedrooms all with their own character, and two bathrooms. There is a choice of outdoor spaces to enjoy, including the patio for al fresco dining, the lawns for playing and the hot tub for relaxing.

Despite its quiet location, you’re only 3 miles from Allonby with its long, sandy beach and small range of eateries. Heading 2.5 miles in the opposite direction brings you to the market town of Aspatria. The Georgian town of Cockermouth is 9 miles south. Historic Maryport (6.5 miles) also offers a lovely day out, with its museums, aquarium, lighthouse and range of shops and eateries. Venturing into the Lakes, you can enjoy Bassenthwaite Lake (within 15 miles), which offers stunning views, a wetland nature reserve and its own nesting ospreys.

Me and my family loved it. The house is stunning, very clean, very equipped with everything you need for cooking and cleaning. The garden is beautiful and much bigger than first expected. The hot tub was great, climbing frame and swings for the kids, loads of toys and books to keep the kids occupied.

Beautiful house, very comfortable beds. Clean. Lots of storage areas - the separate utility room was great! Kitchen was well equipped. Hot tub was amazing and we used it everyday.

Fantastic space to let you heat up and wind down with the different places to visit around the area. Also serves as a brilliant place to be if just wanting a quiet down, giving a great variation of spaces to relax between the lounge, comfortable rooms, the garden or hot tub!

Really nice cottage with great facilities. Only issue to be aware of is location. You definitely need a car as there is no pub or restaurant in the village. But overall well worth a stay. The beech (1 miles away) is beautiful

We stayed for a long weekend and had a fabulous time, despite very wet Lakeland weather! Castlegate House is a beautiful property and was spotlessly clean. We had plenty space for 4 adults and 3 children and the garden was fantastic.

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
