The Hyning Estate comprises 7 self catering cottages some of which can be linked together - ideal for a peaceful break, something larger for the family holiday, or a venue for a get together. The Carriage House is ideal for those travelling with someone who has low mobility and The Old Forge is also all at ground level. Retained beams, sandstone quoins, limestone floors, 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 Hyning Estate provides unserviced self-catering accommodation. We do not provide any Care Services or baby-sitting and cannot guarantee that there is always someone on site so young children, the elderly and those requiring more specialist care should be accompanied at all times by someone able to care for them (or who can be their eyes or ears if required). Very often a mixed group will rent multiple cottages for an event or special occasion. The design of The Carriage House is more suitable for those with mobility issues and The Old Forge is also at ground level (but with no special features).
Details regarding access from the car parking to the main entrance are provided for The Carriage House. Other properties are not really suitable for wheelchair users and none of the others (with the exception of The Old Forge) have downstairs toilet facilities. Parking for at least one car is provided close to each cottage. There is Blue Badge Parking adjacent The Carriage House. There is an overflow / visitor’s car park.The driveways are laid in Asphalt and are in good order. Car parking areas are gravelled but firm. There is a paved area (with a slight incline) between the Blue Badge parking and The Carriage House which is very close.
The Tack Barn, The Bake House, The Old Forge and The Granary are part of a former “Bank Barn” and are accessed from a level area at the top of the bank whereas The Carriage House, and The Old Farmhouse / Hall Beck Cottage are accessed from a level area at the bottom of the bank and the driveway rises steeply between levels.
The car parking areas and driveway are lit in the evenings and a motion detector will turn the lights back on after they’ve gone out at midnight.
The driveway is kept gritted in icy conditions and we have a snow blower just in case we receive a major snow fall (which is very unlikely and we’ve only used it once). In icy or snowy conditions the owners will be very much in evidence and guests are asked not to take risks by venturing out without taking the appropriate precautions. We will provide help & assistance but cannot take responsibility for any accidents.
Path to main entrance
Someone will be on hand to help with luggage during published arrival and departure times.
