The Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 out of 5
The Hayloft is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. The rural setting is great and is peaceful too. York, for the Railway Museum, shops and other attractions, is not far away. The market town of Pocklington is close by and a lovely place to visit.

Jan and Adrian have thought of everything and are great hosts. Will certainly recommend the Hayloft to friends and family and hope to make a return visit ourselves soon.

Perfect holiday cottage

  • 5 out of 5
Just spent a fantastic week in the beautiful Hayloft. This stunning cottage was absolutely perfect for us, a real home from home with everything that we needed and with lots to do in the surrounding areas to keep our little girl (aged 7) well entertained. Hope to visit again soon.

A perfect holiday cottage!

  • 5 out of 5
Everything was absolutely perfect at the Hayloft- it's a recent barn conversion, and no expense has been spared; everything's been finished immaculately and luxuriously. The lounge has a large television, surround sound and blu-ray player, and a great selection of films for rainy days and evenings! The wood-burner in the lounge area was a lovely treat, and was perfect for the November week we stayed there. Every convenience is provided; plenty of crockery and cookware of all kinds, an easy-to-use kitchen, comfy beds, and the optional home-cooked meal that awaited us on our evening arrival (we opted for the lasagne) was delicious. Our young daughter also enjoyed feeding the chickens our toast scraps every morning. Despite the fact that we were only a short drive from the Park and Ride to go into York City Centre (and a short hop across the moors to beautiful Whitby) the Hayloft felt like a real rural retreat, and a welcome break from our busy lives- it also feels very private, despite being part of the farmhouse buildings. We intend returning again soon, and would heartily recommend it to couples and families with young children (no stairs to worry about!).

The Hayloft was the best self-catering accomodation that we have ever stayed in. The cottage was immaculate and the interior really well designed and decorated. It was perfect for the four of us and provided a great base for our week's holiday in York. The weather was not the best so we were unable to make the most of the garden but we did still feed the chickens every day. The owners were available if we had needed them but as everything was perfect we had no need to trouble them. We have recommended the cottage to all of our friends and family.

Hayloft

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second visit to the Hayloft in Thornton. It is perfectly situated to visit York and other attractions. We particularly liked Pocklington. A lovely market town with an excellent independent coffee shop selling delicious food. All of the local pubs are very welcoming and we enjoyed every meal. The property is of the highest standard of presentation. Beautifully furnished and decorated, clean and extremely comfortable. The chickens outside are a delight and love feeding on scraps of bread.

The Hayloft

  • 5 out of 5
The description and photos of the Hayloft are a small indicator of the quality of this barn rental. The attention to detail is second to none and the quality of both fixture and fittings made this a very comfortable stay. Janet and Adrian are the perfect hosts. Many attractions nearby, York, NYMR, Flamborough and Castle Howard to mention just a few. I would certainly recommend this accompdation to friends who are looking for a peaceful break.
