Upper House Farm


A wildly romantic and seductively chic bolthole for 2 guests (+2 by special arrangement). Self-catering luxury holiday accomodation with boutique-hotel hospitality and spectacular views. Hayloft is ideal for romantic getaways and honeymoons.

"Hayloft luxury holiday accommodation is the ideal retreat for honeymoons and romantic getaways..."

Hayloft is perched on the slopes of Black Hill and offers sublime views both day and night.  There is a deep sense of tranquillity stemming from its ancient origins.

Inside, Hayloft is welcoming, sympathetically renovated, with a blend of contemporary style and historic character.  The new spa is a fabulous modern addition, with sauna and treatments available as an optional extra. It has some of the best views you'll find from a day bed!

Originally the hay loft for the farm, the living space now houses a smart, fully equipped kitchen, with dining table, perfect for two, yet easily large enough to invite a couple of friends to dine too.  A couple of steps lead to the sitting room with large wood burning stove, a generous basket of wood, as well as Smart TV, DVD and Wi-Fi throughout.

Upstairs, a large landing area leads to a spacious bedroom with super king size bed and extraordinary views over the rolling landscape of the Welsh Marches. You just need to persuade your other half to bring you breakfast in bed! The luxury bathroom contains a bath and a shower, to soak away the tiredness after a long walk. On the airy landing you will find a day bed for lounging with a book from our small library, that can also fold out to form a double bed, in case you wish to share your stay.

You could easily spend a short break here without visiting the supermarket, stock up at the award winning village shop in Longtown, then dine at the local pub and farm restaurants throughout the weekend. We offer a high level of service, a warm and friendly welcome, and assistance and advice on where to visit if you need it.
