About & Contact

Ground floor facilities with a roof-top patio

The Old Forge is built in the style of a "Bank Barn" - entered at one side from ground level but with 1st floor views on all the other sides. The accommodation is on one level and so will be particularly attractive for those who don't like stairs although it has no special mobility features and is not suitable for wheelchairs (please consider The Carriage House if you need these features).

The Old Forge is very spacious. The twin-aspect windows in the lounge face South & East and provide great views of the fells, the beck and the many fabulous sunsets. Guests often refer to it as "home from home" and it’s not hard to see why... everything is perfect & "just so". The Old Forge dines 6.

The "Signature" bathroom in The Old Forge is truly magnificent. The large walk-in shower is "to die for" and it’s complemented by the very generous bath. The bathroom's large, bright, stone coloured wall & floor tiles change to mosaics in the shower area and all coordinate with the oak & granite wash basin pedestal and the high quality chrome towel rail & bath/shower fittings.

The twin-aspect king-sized master bedroom has views over the fells and up the beck towards the entrance bridge which is flood-lit at night. Of particular note is the very private roof-top patio (including table & 2 chairs) which can be accessed from the twin bedroom... perfect for an evening meal or drink whilst watching the sun go down over the fells.

From the entrance hall there's a doorway that can be unlocked to provide access to the staircase up to the Granary when renting both properties (known jointly as Beckside Barns).

Outside there is a traditional oak & stone-tiled canopy that is tastefully illuminated by small LED spotlights from dusk until late under which there are patio tables & chairs.

Reviews for The Hyning Estate

Tripadvisor logo

Meet the owner

Jan & Richard Hinchliffe

We are a husband and wife team originally from East & West Yorkshire who previously spent 30 years in Cambridge building innovative IT solutions for the NHS. We were both in love with the Lake District before we met and then we loved bringing our children here every year. We had a plan to create something exceptional whilst doing something really worthwhile and fulfilling for ourselves, for other people and for the environment and so we sold our company and purchased Hyning in 2009. We have painstakingly redeveloped and extended the 17th Century Farmhouse and barns to create a truly unique collection of luxurious 'Green', hand crafted holiday dwellings whilst facilitating a change of lifestyle for ourselves. Since opening 'The Hyning Estate' we've made some great friends and shared some magic moments with guests. We hope that you’ll have a brilliant time here too and return again & again with friends & family. We very much look forward to meeting you, Richard & Jan.
