WELCOME TO THE HAY LOFT

SLEEPS 2 (plus sofabed)

THE LOFT

Overlooking the beautiful Victorian Stable Courtyard, we have created three comfortable loft apartments, each sleeping 2 people and with the flexibility of being able to stay for single nights and with the choice of three different room sizes. All have Super King double beds (or Twins if wanted) along with en-suites, and kitchen facilities hidden in beautiful cabinets, along with full access to the Gardens during your time here.

BED AND BATHROOM

The Hay Loft is largest of our three lofts at about 50 square metres, with a gorgeous super-King sized bed (which can be split into two singles) and a luxurious bathroom with both a bath and a walk-in shower. The room is large with a vaulted ceiling and featuring the original truss beams.

SITTING AREA AND KITCHENETTE

The Sitting area has a comfortable sofabed - suitable for a teenager or a couple of smaller children - a table and chairs as well as a compact Kitchen Cupboard with mini-fridge, hob and microwave. There is a Freeview TV with DVD player (and DVDs), free unlimited WiFi and a Bose Bluetooth speaker.

what else?

The Hay Loft has a shared sitting out area and full access to Easton Walled Gardens. All of our Lofts are dog-friendly. Due to the listed status of The Hay Loft, access is via stone steps only.

An oasis of calm

You can wander out from the Lofts into the surrounding rediscovered gardens of the former Easton Hall, and enjoy nearly 12 acres of beautiful grounds, with seasonal highlights from snowdrops to sweet peas, and from tulips and daffodils to roses and meadows.

You can also take advantage of the Gardens’ shop and tea room, or go a bit further afield to buy local provisions from Berry’s Farm Shop to eat at home, or visit the Estate’s Pub, The Cholmeley Arms, with its home cooked food, roaring fires and beer on tap.

You could also hire the Meadow Retreat in the Gardens for a day during your stay. A real slice of heaven set in these beautiful gardens, The Meadow Retreat is a luxury cedar cabin - a 'beach hut' in the Gardens - where you can enjoy some peace and tranquility while you read a good book and sample the cream teas and lunches at the tea shop. Whatever the occasion, for unrivalled rest and relaxation, spend the day at The Meadow Retreat with access to the beautiful surroundings of Easton Walled Gardens at your fingertips. It does need to be pre-booked, so it's worth talking to us about it when you book your stay with us.

We also run regular courses at Easton Walled Gardens, from Willow Weaving to Chocolate Making, which are perfect things to do while staying at the Lodge. See the Workshop Page on our main website for more details.

From January 2019, we can offer guests on-site beauty treatments in the new salon in the Stableyard at Easton. Sarah of the Revive Holistic and Beauty Salon will be offering a wide range of treatments to include Facials, Hot Stone and Deep Tissue Massage, Reflexology and Waxing etc. Sarah has over 20 years’ experience, which she will use to design bespoke treatments for you. Click here for more details.

Breakfast is available at the pub on the Estate, the independently managed Cholmeley Arms in Burton-le-Coggles, a short drive away. These breakfasts are legendary and are well worth the trip. Pre-booking is essential, though, and it is best if guests book direct.
