Situated on the edge of the quiet village of Newholm and only 2 miles from Whitby and a mile from the beach at Sandsend, The Hayloft is a romantic holiday hideaway just for two.

A truly special holiday home

Part of a Grade II listed Georgian farmhouse (now a family residence occupied by The Hayloft's owners, Robin and Caroline), the cottage is located in open countryside on land that was historically a dairy farm.

As its name suggests, The Hayloft was in bygone times used as the farm's hay store. It has subsequently been lovingly converted and furnished to a high standard to become a truly special holiday home.

The cottage offers comfortable accommodation over two floors.

Downstairs, you will discover an open plan lounge, well-equipped kitchen and dedicated dining area.

Upstairs, you will find a double bedroom with uninterrupted views over farmland and complete with drawers, hanging space and an en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower.

Outside, there is a private and secluded seating area where you can sit and enjoy the tranquility of The Hayloft's peaceful rural location. It's the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine whilst watching the numerous birds, rabbits and hares who also call this beautiful part of North Yorkshire 'home'.

A delightful, well equipped cottage. Ideal location for coastal and inland walks.
