About this property

Luxurious, High Quality, 'Green' Farmhouse (Lake District & Dales National Parks)

THE OLD FARMHOUSE (3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6, dines 10)

Oozing with warmth and character you'll find this 17th Century Farmhouse listed in "An Inventory of The Historical Monuments in Westmorland".

This former 17th Century farmhouse has been tastefully renovated to provide a spacious dwelling that combines its immense historical charm with modern luxury. Restoration and renovation work was completed in March 2013 by local craftsmen who have managed to retain the building's considerable charm and character whilst incorporating the very best of 21st Century technology.

The Hyning Estate provides luxurious, high quality, 'Green', self catering accommodation on the edge of The Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks minutes from the M6 and National Rail.

Winners of Cumbria Tourism Self-Catering Holiday of the Year 2015 and Sustainable Tourism Finalists. Visit England 5 Star Gold. Green Tourism Gold.

Stunningly beautiful and renovated to the highest standards, The Hyning Estate offers seven self catering cottages. All are beautifully appointed and sympathetic to their 17th century origins. Retained beams, sandstone quoins, limestone floors, roof top patios, Juliette balconies and ironwork are skilfully combined with modern bathrooms, oak and granite kitchens, woodburning stoves and the latest high-tech appliances. Inspired design, the best local materials, reuse and sustainability all coalesce to create a truly outstanding holiday experience.

The Estate is triple glazed with ground source heat pumps and solar panels providing hot water and underfloor heating backed by Heat Recovery (MVHR) systems. Electricity is supplied from Hydro, Windpower, Biomass and Photovoltaic sources and we have an IEC62196 (Type 2) Mode 3 Electric Vehicle Charging Socket.


3 bedrooms (Double with en-suite, Twin, Oak Bunkroom).
The main bathroom has a walk-in shower whilst the en-suite has a bath.
Beautiful kitchen with granite worktops, induction hob and built in appliances including a double oven, dishwasher & washer-dryer.
Exposed beams which date from 17th Century.
Finished in Oak with Limestone flags.
Open plan lounge / dining area (with 46" LED TV, Blu-ray player and DAB media player).
Morso wood burning stove in Inglenook fireplace
Beams, nooks & crannies all blended with state-of-the-art appliances.

The Old Farmhouse can be linked via interconnecting doors with Hall Beck Cottage to create Hyning House which provides a single dwelling for the larger party / family celebration / Christmas.


Flexible accommodation

Two pairs of cottages can be linked together, so whether you require a quiet secluded hideaway for a short break, something larger for the family holiday, or a venue for a get together then we can help. We are fully licensed and can arrange catering for a celebration or event (please agree when booking).

The Carriage House is ideal for those caring for someone with low mobility and The Old Forge is also at ground level.

Location and setting

Easy to get to and close to the area’s main tourist attractions yet away from the Lakeland traffic hotspots, the Estate is accessed from a long private driveway which opens up to reveal extensive grounds with mature planting surrounded by farm and parkland in a beautiful and very peaceful setting.
You can download local walks from our website (GPX routes for OS Maps on your mobile or handheld GPS), we have a comprehensive library of books and guides and we will do all we can to help you make the most of this spectacular and unique location whatever your ages or interests.
