The charming village of Lastingham engenders peace and relaxation and has much to offer today’s holidaymaker. It is a place of unique beauty and historic interest, nestling among the folds of hills at the southern edge of the North York Moors. This quiet haven, with less than 100 inhabitants, has a charming olde worlde pub, The Blacksmith’s Arms, but perhaps its most famous building is the splendid and historic Crypt Church of St Mary with its wonderful ancient crypt. The surrounding area has many and varied attractions - The North York Moors Steam Railway, Hutton-le-Hole Folk Museum, Eden Camp Modern History Museum and Flamingo Land Theme Park. There’s an abundance of castles, abbeys, churches and stately homes to visit, including the magnificent Castle Howard. Last, but not least, there’s the glorious countryside - woodland and heather moorland, hills, dales and coast.

Previous visitors' comments about The Hayloft:
The decor and attention to detail in the property is very tasteful and in such a cold week the cottage was exceptionally cosy. So warm in fact that we didn't really need to use the wood burning stove.
Mr Nelson, Perth, March 2013
The chance to unwind in very well appointed accommodation, from the very warm welcome by the owners to the great atmosphere created by the locals in the pub, it was a winter
break. The star of the show was the log burning stove in the corner. Fantastic.
Mrs Taylor, Burnley, January 2013
We loved the cosy cottage, especially the wood burning fire and the location was excellent too.
Mrs Anderson, Wigan, November 2012
The Hayloft is set in a beautiful Yorkshire village with a lovely local pub and walks straight onto the Moors. It was a great break to get away and completely relax. We would highly recommend The Hayloft, it was clean, romantic and the owners were very friendly.
