Description: The Award Winning Hyning Estate provides luxurious, high quality, ‘Green’, self catering accommodation on the edge of The Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks just minutes from the M6 and from Oxenholme Railway Station with direct links to Euston and Edinburgh. The Awards so far include Visit England 5 Star, Visit England Gold, Green Tourism Gold and Cumbria Tourism 2015 Winner, but this unique development has also won the hearts of everyone who has stayed in any of these sumptuous cottages and apartments.
Peacefully located away from the crowds and yet offering superb access to both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales National Parks, The Hyning Estate welcomes holiday guests returning year after year to enjoy not only the exceptional quality of these immaculate homes, but also the panoramic views over rolling fields to the Coniston Mountain range, parts of The Kentmere Horseshoe and Whinfell Beacon.
Set in around 2.5 acres of beautiful grounds, each of these eight unique and individually designed stone built properties has been finished and equipped to exacting standards with care and imagination, not to mention an impressive attention to detail. Local craftsmen, carpenters and blacksmiths have been employed to create more than a touch of 21st century luxury within what is believed to be, in part at least, a 360 year old property. The 17th Century farmhouse, replete with exposed beams and plenty of authentic charm, was extended in the 18th century, and again in Victorian times, and with the adjoining barns now stylishly converted, The Hyning truly is something special.
With beautiful oak kitchens with granite worktops, quality appliances and stylish bathrooms, each property offers its own individually welcoming feel, enhanced throughout by real wood burning stoves. A seamless blend of traditional quality combines with high specification modern day luxuries and comforts such as polished limestone floors, underfloor heating and triple glazed doors and windows. The Hyning Estate is reassuringly as future proofed as it can be – with superb "green" sustainability to almost "passive house" standards, employing high levels of thermal insulation, mechanical ventilation and heat recovery (MVHR), ground source heat pumps, solar thermal panels and electric car charging points – a magnificent example of what can be created with the future of the planet (not to mention fuel bills) in mind.
From a practical point of view, the accommodation is superbly adaptable. Interconnecting doors discretely link Hall Beck Cottage with The Old Farmhouse, and The Old Forge with The Granary, making them ideal for those seeking space for extended family gatherings or party celebrations and some even have the benefit of additional hand-crafted fold down beds in the living rooms should there be any need to accommodate any over-spill. Indeed, the entire development may be considered an ideal wedding, party or conference/team-building venue for example, for those who may wish to consider options away from straight forward holiday letting.
The Hyning Estate offers the perfect location for a lifestyle change with the option of residing in any one of these beautiful homes whilst running the business in a "hands on" manner, or even letting on assured shorthold tenancies to satisfy the ever increasing demand in this unique location. The detached office and laundry provides the ideal work base on site, and may even offer further development opportunities (subject to consent being obtained) if desired. The estate also provides a simply wonderful investment portfolio opportunity with plenty of options to further develop the business going forward. The current owners do not allow pets, for example, and always currently leave one vacant day between lets and amending these policies could further enhance the return significantly should you so wish, whilst some may even consider adding further attractions, such as introducing hot tubs or even providing catering for guests as The Byre includes a commercial style kitchen which at one time was considered as a bar/restaurant/function area. There is even the option to sub-divide the development (subject to consent being obtained) should you so wish, as each individual unit is delightfully appealing in its own right.
