Cumbria Tourism's 2015 Self-Catering Holiday of The Year Winner and 2015 Sustainable Tourism Finalist

The Hyning Estate provides luxurious, high quality, ‘Green’, self catering accommodation on the edge of The Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks minutes from the M6 and National Rail.

Stunningly beautiful and renovated to the highest standards, The Hyning Estate offers seven self catering cottages. All are beautifully appointed and sympathetic to their 17th century origins. Retained beams, sandstone quoins, limestone floors, roof top patios, 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 Estate is triple glazed with ground source heat pumps and solar panels providing hot water and underfloor heating backed by Heat Recovery (MVHR) systems. Electricity is supplied from Hydro, Windpower, Biomass and Photovoltaic sources and we have an IEC62196 (Type 2) Mode 3 Electric Vehicle Charging Point.

Flexible accommodation

Two pairs of cottages can be linked together, so whether you require a quiet secluded hideaway for a short break, something larger for the family holiday, or a venue for a get together then we can help. We are fully licensed and can arrange catering for a celebration or event (please agree when booking).

The Carriage House is ideal for those caring for someone with low mobility and The Old Forge is also at ground level.

Location and setting

Easy to get to and close to the area’s main tourist attractions yet away from the Lakeland traffic hotspots, the Estate is accessed from a long private driveway which opens up to reveal extensive grounds with mature planting surrounded by farm and parkland in a beautiful and very peaceful setting.

You can download local walks from our website (GPX routes for OS Maps on your mobile or handheld GPS), we have a comprehensive library of books and guides and we will do all we can to help you make the most of this spectacular and unique location whatever your ages or interests.
The owners, Jan and Richard live on the Estate and welcome you to their ‘Grand Design’.

Our Post Code is not unique and GPS’s can’t always tell the difference between a road & a bridleway so we recommend that you do the following in order to get here with the minimum of excitement:

1. Use the coordinates of our driveway as your destination and not our Post Code:

54°22’12.3″N 2°38’00.4″W or 54.370083, -2.633436 (Decimal)

Alternatively enter “Grayrigg” into your GPS as your destination and when you get there follow the instructions from Grayrigg (at the foot of this page).

2. If travelling from the South or East and you want to avoid (potentially icy) single-track roads then add an intermediate “Waypoint” (or travel “via”) “Station Road, Kendal”

FROM THE NORTH WITHOUT A GPS (the preferred route):

Leave the M6 Motorway at Junction 38 (Tebay) and take the A685 South towards Kendal. The road crosses the M6 then climbs gradually above, and parallel to, the M6 with the Howgill Fells to your left. After about 6 miles (from Tebay), just before you get to Grayrigg, take the left hand turn signed “Lambrigg 1 mile” (there is no prior warning of this turn so it’s very easy to miss but it is just after a sign warning of bends). Then, almost immediately take the first right hand turn into the drive, a private road with black railings. The gate posts are lit up at night and there is large slate sign in the bank on the left.


Leave the M6 Motorway at Junction 36 and follow the signs to Kendal. Don’t take the first turn to Kendal – wait until you get to the roundabout then stay on the main road down into Kendal and straight on towards the station at both sets of traffic lights. When you get to the Peugeot Garage / Kendal Railway Station follow the road left at the mini-roundabout signed “Sedbergh avoiding low bridge” and then pass under the railway bridge and quickly turn right with the Porche Garage to your left (signposted Tebay, Appleby, Brough A685). Follow the A685 (passing Morrisons to your left) on to Grayrigg (about 4 Miles from Morrisons). Do not take the road signed “Lambrigg 2 miles” just before reaching Grayrigg.

FROM GRAYRIGG (Don’t use a GPS):

If arriving from Kendal continue through the village on the main road, the A685. If arriving from anywhere else then please ensure you leave the village on the main road with the church on your left. As you leave the village the road climbs and you’ll pass a sign for “Sunny Bank Farm” on your right. Take the first right turn after this signed “Lambrigg 1 mile” and then, almost immediately take the first right hand turn into the drive, a private road with black railings. The gate posts are lit up at night and there is large slate sign in the bank on the left.
