  • "Excellent property, very clean & comfortable."

  • "Property was stunning inside and out with private parking courtyard outside."

    Lovely touch of the owner greeting us on arrival and also the welcome pack inside too. The inside of the property was 5 Star quality throughout with everything you needed for your stay, absolutely stunning. One of the best accomodations we have stayed in so far since using Sykes now for over 10 years. The added bonus was The Fleece Inn literally just a few yards away from our driveway. Food was superb and friendly service was so welcoming. The surrounding areas had more than enough to keep us occupied for our stay and even a 10 min bus ride into Holmfirth from just outside our property too. What more could you ask for.. Would definitely return again. Thank you Catherine for making our stay so special.

    The accommodation has been renovated to a very high standard. The beams and fairy lights were very pretty. The views are beautiful and very peaceful. The owners are lovely and so helpful. We had a couple of very nice meals in the pub literally 30 seconds from the door. The village has a very friendly feel to it with lots of great walks. We would definitely stay again. Thank you

  • "The Hayloft is absolutely gorgeous!"

    Catherine greeted us late on Monday and was so lovely despite the fact we were a lot later than planned! She recommended the Yorkshire Sculpture Park to visit which was 30 minutes away. Mam Tor is 45 minutes away and was an incredible hike. Holmfirth is just 5 minutes down the road in car and is a gorgeous little village. The burgers at Lou & Joe’s are the best we’ve ever had - and my boyfriend is American! The loft is clean, tidy and the welcome basket for visitors is a lovely touch. We also had fresh milk in the fridge. There is a book on the side which has sooo much helpful info / recommendations. Everything was just like the pictures if not better. We only wish we could have stayed longer in this lovely place and experienced more of the surrounding areas. It will definitely be on our list the next time we stay here. Thank you!

  • "This was our 2nd stay at this property which is surely the best recommendation we can offer."

    Catherine is a perfect host owner. Welcoming and friendly, at hand to help but without any intrusion. The property is of a high standard with an induction hob, microwave cooker and even a small dishwasher ( which we didn't use) but no washing machine ( which we didn't need) to maximise the space in the apartment. It had everything we needed to ensure a relaxing break and am sure we will be back .....hopefully soon.

  • "We had a lovely week at The Hayloft and Catherine was a fantastic host."

    We highly recommend the place. The Fleece pub across the road had a warm and welcoming atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. The Pickled Pheasant pub although pricey has excellent food. The Catch wasn't as good at the same price. When we had walked all the reservoirs in the area we travelled further afield and did the Monsal Trail and Castleton Blue John caves (Treak Hill). The only pre-warning we'd give for The Hayloft is to park in the road opposite The Fleece pub (lots of space) if you have a low-slung car as you will get stuck like we did at the top of the drive. The accommodation is lovely but there is no oven, just a combi grill and microwave so we got caught out. The food is good though at The Fleece and their carrot cake (from The Pantry) is legendary!

  • "To look at the property it is stunning."

    What wasn’t apparent from the property description was the limitations of the kitchen. There’s no storage area in the kitchen and no oven which makes self catering difficult. There’s an excellent catering pub across the road. The owner was friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for her.

    Thank you for your feedback. On the basis of this the owners have now added a plate rack and shelves which allows for plenty of storage in the kitchen area. We advertise there is a combined convection microwave oven and an induction hob, although small this is more than sufficient for a couples retreat. Once again thank your feedback. Property Owner

  • "Highly recommended."

    Location is great, great views up towards the moors, plenty of walks straight out of the door, or just a short drive away. Very close to Holmfirth and the shops there, and just across the road from a very nice pub with great sandwich shop attached. Very recently done with a modern, but cosy style, and spotlessly clean. Everything high-end, but not over the top. Kitchen space is small, not for cooking gourmet meals of your own, but perfect for making light meals and sandwiches, and plenty of places to get food nearby. Owners right next door and very friendly and helpful, and nice off-street parking. Also has a very sweet dog and very friendly sheep.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this high grade barn conversion."

    It is spacious and warm with very comfortable top quality furniture and fittings, and excellent wifi provision. The hosts, Catherine and Sam, are just across the drive and made sure we had everything we needed. The generous welcome pack of Yorkshire fare and fresh flowers was a wonderful greeting. The location is ideal for long or short walks from the doorstep, either up to the ridge to find the Pennine Way or through woodland and farm tracks around the many reservoirs, plus there is a regular bus to bring you back up the hill from Holmfirth. It is also easy to drive to and explore further afield, such as Ladybower reservoir and Stanage Edge. The pub over the road was open for outside service (April 2021! Covid lockdown slowly relaxing!) wrapped up warm we enjoyed two tasty meals there. Other meals were prepared in the Hayloft, the induction hob was great and the microwave good for reheating meals I had prepared at home, but I struggled a bit using the microwave/grill to cook a meal that recommended oven cooking! Despite being just off the main road and opposite a pub the thick barn walls and double glazed windows meant we heard nothing when inside the Hayloft, it was easy to relax on the leather sofa and gaze at the stunning moorland views. We had a very relaxing visit and would highly recommend a stay at the Hayloft. Just two cautions... If you are tall, over 6ft, you may find a couple of the beams a bit low, but they have been threaded with fairy lights to remind you! Also, beware of the threshold to the drive it has a small hump, our low, long wheel base estate car, grounded the first time we drove in, amusing the pub visitors!
