    Thoughtful touches make a difference ie boxes of tissues, fairy liquid,soap and body lotion provided as well as a welcome box of local goodies. Cottage was immaculate with good quality furnishings. Stayed in many holiday lets over the years and this one was one of the best.

    The extras, they provided were so welcome. (A hamper full of goodies) flowers to welcome us. From Hayloft there are plenty of places to visit in wonderful countryside.

  • "We had a lovely stay at the Hayloft and were made very welcome by the owners."

    The welcome basket was a real treat! The place itself was beautifully kitted out, had everything you could need for a comfortable stay and was absolutely spotless. Location wise, couldn't fault it...within easy reach of some superb places to visit. Locally, the Plum and Partridge was a nice bar/restaurant, but our personal favourite was the Fauconberg Arms in the next village along. All in all, we had a wonderful time. Thanks!

    Very well equipped - every imaginable kitchen appliance, torches in every room, good solid furniture. Plenty of toiletries, and a box of basic food (bread, milk, tea, coffee, cake). Even a couple of bottles of local cider (pity were are teetotal).

    Really clean, well kept and comfortable. Kitchen fully stocked with all the essentials. Welcome basket with tea, coffee, sugar, bread and local cider. Was given a loyalty card for discounts at the local pub. Really couldn't fault it in a single way. Morning strokes with the fluffy farm cat was a welcomed perk.

  • "Quiet location to relax after a day in the stunning countryside or visiting the quaint villages of the area."

    The cottage was well appointed and had everything we wanted. Our only criticism was not enough clothes drawers or any wardrobe in the bedroom areas for a full weeks stay. We managed ok but with a bit of thought about this there is space to provide these extras. Without these we would still be happy to return as it was ideally placed for our stay. The village has no pub and 1 restaurant. We aren't that bothered but if you want a pub you can go to without having to drive this may not suit you.

    It was absolutely pristine. Lovely little welcome pack - loaf of bread/cake and milk. We went armed with cafetière/dishwasher tablets/dishcloths/kitchen towel etc ...too numerous to mention but none of these were required. Sue & Rob the owners greeted us on arrival ... we bumped into them a couple of times and they were about if you needed them - needless to say we didn’t! The location is great too...easy to get to Harrogate/York & Whitby Would most definitely recommend and hope to return some time. 10/10 from us!

    The facilities, furnishings, decoration and cleanliness are top quality. Beautiful bedding, plenty of bath towels, quality toiletries, plenty of tea towels, washing up liquid and cleaning cloths, dishwasher tablets, fresh milk, fresh bread, delicious cake and fresh flowers. The kitchen is incredibly well equipped and spotlessly clean, sitting area lovely and cosy with TV, radio, board games, dvd's, books and maps of the area. Having been out all day exploring the area and visiting family in Sunderland it was such a pleasure to return to The Hayloft at the end of a busy day with all our needs catered for. There is literally nothing that is not provided. Sue and Rob made us feel so welcome, we didn't need any assistance from them but they made it perfectly clear that should we need anything just to ask. We loved our stay at this cottage and didn't want to leave, in fact we would happily move in permanently ! Thank you Sue and Rob for providing such a fabulous cottage, enabling us to thoroughly enjoy our stay, we cannot wait to return.

About the location


Easingwold 3 miles; Thirsk 6 miles; York 17 miles.

The small historic village of Husthwaite lies on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, overlooking the Vale of York. Picturesque and peaceful, the village is a perfect introduction to "Herriot Country", a beautiful old Norman church, many fine old houses and an active village hall hosting many events throughout the year. The nearby White Horse of Kilburn, cut out of the hillside in 1857, is a prominent local landmark. The lovely market town of Easingwold is nearby, boasting a pretty market square and a good selection of pubs and cafes, whilst York with its famous Minster, medieval walls and Jorvik Viking Centre, is a short drive away. The Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors and Coast are also within easy touring distance and are rich in stately homes and National Trust attractions - Harewood House and Castle Howard are just two of several within an hour's drive.
