More about The Hayloft

This fabulous, romantic hideaway for 2 really is a truly special holiday home and is the perfect base for exploring Whitby and the North York Moors, with its pretty moorland villages and historic coastal villages.

Situated on the edge of the picturesque village of Newholm, The Hayloft offers breath-taking countryside views all around and is only 2 miles (5 minutes’ drive) from the historic seaside town of Whitby and just one mile from the delightful and pretty coastal village of Sandsend – both renowned for having outstanding ‘blue flag’ status beaches.

This charming cottage (given its name) has been converted from the former working dairy farm’s hay store and is adjoined to the Grade II Listed Georgian farmhouse. The Hayloft has recently been lovingly restored, retaining many of its original features and character. The cottage is furnished throughout to a very high standard, with Laura Ashley products, and lots of lovely touches.

Cosy, comfortable accommodation is offered over two floors. The first floor has a beamed double bedroom with a picture window revealing unspoilt views over open farmland, and an en suite bathroom which has a walk-in shower. The ground floor offers a relaxing, open plan layout. From the lounge the sash window fully frames the beautiful countryside views which often includes an abundance of wildlife. Hares, pheasants, barn owls and of course many birds are amongst the regular visitors. The modern fitted kitchen and dining area is very well equipped, having all the necessities and comforts of a home-from-home.

The cottage is entered from a courtyard offering plenty of parking space. To the front of the cottage there's a small seating area from which you can enjoy the views. Sit back and relax with a cuppa or a glass of wine or beer and simply enjoy the surroundings of this peaceful retreat.

Well behaved dogs are most welcome to stay too, but the owners respectfully ask visitors to restrict their dogs to the ground floor only (not permitted upstairs nor on the furniture).
