The Hay Loft description

This small, picturesque Dales village is situated just two miles from Masham in the midst of some of Yorkshire's most beautiful scenery. It comprises a scattering of dwellings and farmsteads, set round a spacious village green, offering an excellent local pub serving fine ales and excellent cuisine. A wonderful base for exploring North Yorkshire, all year round.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

Nothing was too much trouble for the owners who live next door. The Hay Loft is a lovely cottage with every feature that you could wish for. We will come back!

Had a wonderful stay this weekend at The Hay Loft! It was cosy, warm and welcoming, and a joy to come back to after days in the Dales. A really well equipped cottage which exceeded our expectations. It was really well located for a stay in the Dales, and loved the view over the village from the bedroom and the fabulous deep bath! We will definitely return and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you!

Absolutely beautiful property. The cottage was the perfect retreat from busy life and provided us with everything and more than we actually needed. It really was incredible. We have to come back soon. The property was very clean, and well stocked and furnished to a high standard. The owners were very accommodating and helpful.

Fantastic location and base for exploring the Dales and we were particularly impressed with the hospitality of the owners, who couldn't have made us feel any more welcome. We would definitely come again and would not hesitate to recommend the cottage to our friends. Hugely enjoyable short break.

Wonderful stay this weekend at the Hayloft! Cosy, warm and welcoming and a joy to come back to after days in the Dales during Storm Desmond! Really well equipped cottage and would echo other reviews to say it surpassed our expectations. Really well located for a stay in the Dales. Loved the view over the village from the bedroom and the fabulous deep bath! Friendly hosts made booking simple and it was delightful to receive homemade bread and jam on arrival. We will definitely return and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you!

The very friendly and helpful owners contributed to what was a delightful holiday. Our choice proved to be ideal for exploring both the Yorkshire Dales and Moors.

This is a lovely little rental property for two people. It has been excellently renovated by the owners. The lounge is cosy with both heating and an electric fire. As the weather was not brilliant we spent some time in the apartment and would a more comfortable sofa and chair would have been appreciated. The bedroom was lovely with a great view over the village green. I enjoyed the large bath and shower in the bathroom. A shelf in the bathroom would be useful for toiletries. The home made bread and jam on arrival were appreciated.

My partner booked this for my 50th Birthday and it was fab! The owners were very friendly and we arrived to freshly baked bread and home made jam. The kitchen is well equipped, the bedroom has a fab view over the village green, the bathroom has a lovely deep bath and massive shower cubicle. It really was a very relaxing break in very comfortable homely accommodation.

Agree with other reviewer that this accommodation exceeded all standards of any other cottage we have ever stayed in. It overlooks the village green which gives it a calm and serene atmosphere. It is beautifully decorated, equipped and exceptionally clean. The owners were lovely, friendly and helpful. We also received a warm welcome with home made bread and jam. Can't speak highly enough and it puts other cottages in the shadows.

This perfectly renovated hayloft overlooking the village green is the ideal accommodation for couples. Looking tiny from the outside, the inside is roomy, and most thoughtfully and loveingly decorated and equipped. There's plenty of heating, including a cosy fire, and a basket of fluffy blankets for cold spells., and wonderful views over the village green, especially from the huge fanlight window above the "barn doors" - exactly at bed level so you wake in the morning to a glorious view. When we arrived, there was freshly baked bread, butter and jam awaiting us, and fresh milk in the fridge, as well as fresh coffee for the perculator. The cupboards revealed the best selection of condiments ever. No leftovers from previous tenants here, but fresh bottles of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, teas of every kind, and instant coffee. The bathroom was also equipped with a selection of toiletries, and big white dressing gowns. The nearest village, Masham, can be reached on foot in half an hour, and the village pub is only a five minutes' walk. walk.

Wonderful self catering apartment in a lovely village setting. Very comfortable accommodations with lots of thoughtful extras e.g. fresh coffee for the morning along with freshly made bread, jam and local butter. Other great touches such as a bathroom cabinet with items you may have forgotten. Also the place is incredibly clean. A great stay in a really thoughtfully presented property

We just have returned from our holiday summer week at The Hay Loft in Fearby, and we are delighted and happy with our experience there. The place is comfortable, clean, and the owners make you feel welcome and you feel like you are at home. Peaceful, with gorgeous surroundings and a nice pub nearby. You has also beautiful towns close by like Mashan and Ripon. Will recommend to friends or family and if I go back to North Yorkshire Dales again without a doubt I will book again my holidays at The Hay Loft. Also good WiFi access.
