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 farmstead (with the main farmhouse 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. There is also a television in the bedroom.

Outside, there is a private and secluded seating area where you can sit and enjoy the tranquility of The Hayloft's beautiful 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'. If you are extra lucky you might also spot deer or the barn owls.


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