The Hayloft Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Originally built as a hayloft, this property has been lovingly and sympathetically converted to offer accommodation for up to three people. Exposed beams retain some of the cottage's original character and the living accommodation has been arranged in an open-plan style to create a spacious and bright feel. Visitors have shared use of the owner's garden, which offers ample opportunity for a spot of al fresco dining. The cottage also makes a perfect base in the winter months, being heated by oil central heating and an atmospheric wood-burning stove in the sitting room.

Newton is an unspoilt village on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park with its own, centuries-old duck pond and village green. Situated on a limestone plateau close to the stunning valley of Newton Dale near Pickering, it is very close to local attractions such as the unique and mysterious earthworks of Cawthorn Roman Camps and the Roman road, ‘Wade's Causeway'. Newton itself is a pretty cluster of stone farms and cottages round the village green and duck pond. There is superb walking to be found here, as well as riding and cycling. The famous steam railway runs close by in Newtondale. Castles, abbeys, stately homes, market towns and picturesque fishing villages are within easy reach. York is 30 miles away, coastal cliffs and sandy beaches about 20 miles. The village is high on the North York Moors in the National Park, renowned for its spectacular sweeps of heather moorland, abundant wildlife and for its homely stone-and-pantiled farms and cottages.

The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.

Oil central heating with woodburner in sitting area. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, TV with Freeview, DVD, radio, WiFi. Fuel, power and starter pack of fuel for woodburner inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Off road parking for 2 cars. Shared use of large garden with private patio area, garden furniture and BBQ. Up to two well-behaved dogs welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Shop 4 miles, pub 2 mins walk.

Lovely accommodation in a great location. Lots of walks directly from the Hayloft.
Mrs Parris-Long
June 2016
The Hayloft was home from home, really comfortable and had everything we needed. The location was great, quiet village but near enough to get to lots of places we wanted to visit.
Mr Gower
July 2016
This was our second visit to The Hayloft, there was a massive new bathroom suite and lights over the kitchen units. A wonderful view down into Pickering and beyond.
Mrs Questier
June 2016
The Hayloft was even better than we expected from looking at pictures before going. We think it was the best accommodation we have had on any of our UK holidays. It was spacious, light and had lovely views. It was everything we could want was in the property.
Miss Charman
August 2015
It was our 2nd time at The Hayloft. It was bright, clean, comfortable, in a great setting and with friendly welcoming hosts. We love the peaceful area and it's a brilliant base for a holiday in Yorkshire.
Mr Glazik
February 2015
Our second visit to this particular property and, as the first time, very impressed with all that it offers. The owners were very welcoming and the location of the property lends itself to varying days out, be they coastal or inland. Add to this the outstanding beauty of the moors and countryside together with the numerous walks on offer with our Italian Spinone and it all adds up to a relaxing break. We will be back to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this small village location.
Mrs Davison
March 2015
Already knew the area fairly well, although not this particular village which was beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. Having stayed in lots of self catering accommodation over the years, it has to be said that this one has surpassed the lot! Top marks to the owners for the standards overall - this hayloft conversion ticks every box for a thoroughly enjoyable holiday in gorgeous surroundings. Have already booked a return visit!
Ms Grant

This is very comfortable cottage, with friendly and helpful owners in a nice village. The area is terrific and having such a pleasant cottage was a major step towards an excellent holiday. After a busy and tiring day on the moors, the railway or the coast returning journey to the cottage was a nice way to end the day.
Mr Mould
November 2014
The location of the cottage is set in a quiet little village, Newton Upon Rawcliffe, away from any noise. The village pub is situated directly across the road from the cottage which serves food of generous portions good quality for a fair price. The cottage was well presented clean tidy with everything we could need, a home from home. Due to the direct links to areas of interest and local amenities we have both had a relaxing holiday, thank you to the owners and Sykes Cottages.

Mrs Hunt
July 2012
We were at The Hayloft last year too, and enjoyed the comfort and peace of the typical English village. The very good and reasonable food to be had at the White Swan, the only pub, meant not using the cooker very often. The owners of The Hayloft are delightful, very helpful, but not intrusive. We hope to visit again before too long.

They also brought us some fresh cakes, which was a lovely gesture. The property was well-equipped and there was a lot of information about what to do locally. Thank you.
Mrs Hunt
July 2011
The Hayloft was a beautifully converted barn and the owners were charming people. It was in a lovely quiet little village with a duck pond on the village green, and a very pleasant pub with good but inexpensive meals. We were very lucky with the weather, there are lots of places we hadn't time to see and would certainly like to stay there again.
Mrs Harding
July 2011
Beautiful location. Well equipped, charming accommodation and friendly helpful owners. Will certainly return and recommend to others. Welcome gift was a particularly nice gesture.
Mrs Whitehead

We thought the cottage was really homely, clean and fully catered for all our needs. The area was an excellent location and near to the places we wanted to visit. We went on lots of great walks and found the local pub friendly and appreciated the home cooked food. Love to go back in the near future. Many Thanks Donna Dareen

As we both work, it was nice to get away just to chill out. Everything about The Hayloft was perfect, it's light and airy and welcoming. We would certainly recommend to friends and family.

Plenty of space for just a 1 bed cottage. Excellent for a peaceful break and plenty of walking from the village.
Mrs Hicks
August 2007
Beautiful setting and garden. Very helpful owners. Lots to do in the area.
August 2016
We stayed here for a weeks holiday in August. The Hayloft is tucked away behind other buildings but easy to find. The property itself is very spacious and well appointed. The bed was very comfortable as was the three piece suite. The views at the back are lovely, we had a couple of glorious sunsets to enjoy. This is not for anyone with mobility problems as access is up an outside staircase, the stairs are uneven but this adds to its charm. The Hayloft is about 4 to 5 miles outside Pickering, so very near the North York Moors. All in all a very peaceful, enjoyable break.
January 2014
I'll start with the positives then move on to the areas that, for us, let the property down but we think could very easily be rectified. The Hayloft is very spacious, clean, prettily furnished, and reasonably well equipped. The owners are friendly and were extremely quick and gracious in sorting a couple of items in the cottage. We appreciated the Prosecco left for us to see in the New Year and the generous starter pack of logs and kindling. The negatives were the small double bed, only 4 foot, which had not been explained in the cottage rental details. We were forever waking ourselves up because we were on the point of falling out of bed (and we're both slim!) A poor night's sleep was compounded by noisy central heating pipes that regularly knocked, tapped and creaked. Ironically the Hayloft's charming bedroom is large enough easily to accommodate a 6 foot bed, which surely would be a fabulous selling point for any property? The nice soft bath towels were also minimalist, the ends only just met when I wrapped myself in it and the essentials were just about covered! The sofa desperately needs to be resprung or reupholstered, it looked inviting but unfortunately was uncomfortable. I found the pillows to be hard but my husband was OK with them, and the owner swiftly found me a softer one (thank you Ian). The kitchen area would benefit from lighting, it is very dim and difficult to work in. Although there is room for one, there is no washing machine - the cottage info states that the nearest launderette is in Scarborough - which we felt was an oversight in a spot that is typically going to be booked by walkers, cyclists and dog owners. No clothes airer either, so we had to drape wet gear round the bathroom as best we could. The bathroom was massive and crying out for a beautiful walk-in shower instead of the rather underpowered electric shower over the corner bath. The bathroom suite was probably installed in the early 1980s, judging by the style and colour. My respectful suggestion would be that the owners (indeed any owners of a holiday cottage) live, sleep and cook in their cottage for a couple of days to understand better the positives and negatives.
April 2014
far better than the pictures show it is extremely spacious. it is very clean and comes with everything you would need for a great break.

Just returned after a 4 night stay in the Hayloft in Newton upon Rawcliffe North Yorkshire. The accommodation has open plan living room and kitchen which is spacious and airy. Very well furnished in terms of kitchen appliances, glasses, and crockery etc. The room is heated through radiators and in addition there is a large wood burner which ensures even the coldest weather is kept at bay. Very nice touch from the owners to provide a starter kit for the fire and a box of chocolates to enjoy curled up in front of it. The bedroom is adequately furnished and the bed is comfortable. A second lcd tv is available and extra bedding is too if required. The en suite bathroom is well equipped and also has an electric shower over the bath. The area is set in the National Park and walks with breathtaking views are available from the doorstep. There is a local pub too just across the road from the property. No shop so 4 mile drive into Pickering for groceries and logs. I would recommend the hayloft and will consider returning for a week next year!
June 2013
The Hayloft exceeded our expectations, the owners were very friendly and approachable should there be any need. The Hayloft was very well equipped with everything that the visitor should need. We went earlier in the year when it was a bit cooler, it was lovely to return to a warm and welcoming cottage after exploring the area, the road going out of the village takes you across the moors and is a lovely drive. and should you need to feel more cosier on your return the log fire is an absolute must we loved it. The pub across the road is very welcoming and serves great home cooked meals. The Hayloft is a great retreat with lots of scenic walks.
September 2011
A beautifully converted haybarn with a lovely view of the Howardian hills in North Yorkshire,where you will find Castle Howard. There are so many other lovely places to visit we were spoilt for choice,and certainly want to return.
September 2011
Lovely, well equipped accommodation in a beautiful location, owners charming & helpful, we would thoroughly recommend this cottage
September 2013
We stayed here with our 5-month old son, and had a lovely 10 days. The accommodation comprised one bedroom, an en-suite bathroom and a lounge/kitchen/diner. The bedroom was comfortably large enough for both of us and a travel cot, and the lounge was very spacious indeed. The kitchen was well-equipped and with all mod cons, and the bathroom did the job (though the shower could perhaps do with an upgrade). Overall, it was very comfortable - not 100% modern in certain respects, but by no means dated or worn. The owners were lovely, and really helpful. The place itself had a very welcoming feel to it, not least because of the delicious cakes left for us on the first day! The village itself is really picturesque, and it is close to the busier but still pretty Pickering, and the glorious walking country of the North Yorks Moors. We were very lucky with the weather, so managed to get to the seaside a couple of times, and also fit in a few walks. We felt thoroughly relaxed and recharged at the end of our stay, and hopefully we will be back sometime.
December 2011
Everything was perfect, the setting, the owners and the Hayloft itself, didn't want to leave, plenty of space, a large lounge, diner and kitchen lovely bedroom en suite with corner bath, all very warm, didn't need the open fire. We will definitely return one day.Close to lots of interesting places, Goathland, (heartbeat) Whitby & Scarborough, not to mention lots of castles, abbey's & of coarse the moors.
September 2012
The hayloft was well equipped and comfortable.It is situated in a little village and a couple of miles away from the nearest town, Pickering.There are fantastic views from the hayloft of the surrounding countryside.It is a good base to explore the Yorkshire moors from and the coastline around Whitby.I would recommend a stay here if you want a peaceful stay in the country.The hayloft is clean and ideal for a couple. There is a sofa bed in the living area but there is only one bathroom(with toilet) accessible through the only bedroom.There are steep stone steps up to the hayloft so it would be unsuitable for people who can not do stairs.
August 2011
We had a fantastic week at the hay loft. It just felt right as soon as we drove in. We were not dissapointed. The owners were really friendly. Such a bonus to find this gem, and being able to take our two retrievers. The pub was very good just over road. But make sure you are hungry when you go as the portions are big. Such a pretty, tranquil, friendly little village. The hay loft was the perfect retreat. We have already recommended it to several friends.
July 2010
This property is very good. I and my wife are satisfied with conditions that were provided. The only regret is: if there could access to internet would be much better.
January 2011
excellent area, wonderful accomodation extremely helpful owners.
February 2011
We spoke to the Owners a few days prior to travelling and was given excellent directions to the property. On arriving we found a warm, cosy Hayloft awaiting us. The property is excellently furnished, with a very comfortable bed. (An experience I have rarely found when on holiday.) The Kitchen has been equipped to such a high standard, it was like being in my own kitchen. (Very important when cooking Christmas dinner away from home!) Newton upon Rawcliffe is a extremely pretty village, with some beautiful walks. This was enhanced further by the fact it was covered in deep snow. There was a problem with the central heating on our last day. The Owner was very apologetic, was doing his utmost to get it sorted out and provided us with extra logs for the woodburner. We found the Owner both friendly (even helping to push our car out of the snow one morning!) and unintrusive. I would most definitely recommend this property to other people.
December 2009
We were warmly welcomed and found the accomodation cosy and with the option of the log fire extremely welcoming when coming back from being out on the moors for the day. We have two dogs that accompany us on all holidays and they were welcomed and we had plenty of space for them. Our grandson loved the ducks on the village green and we were able to do the lovely circular walk around the village, with amazing views. We also went for moonlight walks listening to the owls. The village is very close to Pickering, which has everything you would need and it is also a perfect base for exploring North Yorkshire from Moors to Coast
December 2009
The accommodation was first class. It was clean, tidy and had a real homely feel to it. The owners live in an adjoining property but whilst friendly and helpful never interfered. Most importantly the property is dog friendly. The village itself although small has some wonderfull walks with some fantastic views and a dog friendly pub that serves good homemade food. The nearest shopping town is Pickering about six miles away. Pickering is the terminus for the North York Moors Steam Railway which crosses the moors to Whitby stopping at numerous fantastic locations on the way. You are free to get on and off as you like. If you want to spend a holiday walking or just exploring the moors then this property is an ideal base. No rush, no hurry, no worry just good old fashioned Yorkshire hospitality. Once you have been I bet you will want to go back.
May 2010
Met by owner and given a very comprehensive tour of accommodation. Lovely welcome pack of Yorkshire Curd tart and chocolates - Yum Yum! The Hayloft was everything we could have wished for and more - clean, bright and very well equipped. The village was everything an English village should be and the meals and welcome at the pub were excellent. The area was great for walking which was the purpose of our holiday. We enjoyed mostly good weather but it was great to return to the cosy and warm Hayloft.The two dogs were made very welcome and they loved it.
