Converted Hayloft cottage in Harrogate, Yorkshire, England - This Lovely Property With An Exposed Beamed Bedroom Oozes Charm And Character

This lovely property is quietly situated on the owners Georgian farmhouse. It boasts a lovely beamed bedroom and cosy living area with kitchen. It is set in 15 acres of rolling pastures and guests can enjoy the hens,ducks ,ponies and pet donkey in the paddock. Nearby is the village of Littlethorpe with lovely walks along the restored canal. The farm is next to a designated Bike route - so bring your bikes. The pretty village of Bishop Monkton is close with a pub serving good food and beer. The village has a babbling brook running through it and the antics of the wild ducks can be enjoyed. It is an easy 15-20 minutes to the wonderful spa town of Harrogate with fabulous shops and the famous Betty's tea rooms as well as the International conference centre and Yorkshire show ground. York is an easy day trip to vist the historic sights and Fountains Abbey is very close( world Heritage site).An excellent base to tour the delights of Yorkshire.

The Hayloft, is on our Georgian farmstead, and has its own private entrance.The Hayloft overlooks the large pond and paddocks, so that our own animals , hens, ducks , sheep and donkeys can be seen as well as the wildlife that regular visits and included herons, canada geese,hedgehogs,owls and once a year some young roe deer in search of food.The hayloft provides a peaceful retreat, all year round.Step into the sitting room and you will be surrounded by atmosphere and comfort.During the day the sun streams through the double doors. Upstairs is the lovely oak beamed double bedroom, and shower room leading off from the bedroom. In the summer, the gardens can be enjoyed,and in the winter snuggle up around the cosy fire. The hayloft has been completely refurbished in November 2017, with new kitchen and shower room, cotton sheets and duvets,fluffy towels and , when possible, a welcome pack of our home laid eggs, milk and flowers on your arrival. The hayloft is well equipped for eating in and you will find it a joy to prepare meals and to dine at the pine table with views over the pond and paddocks. Or you can dine out at one of the many cosy local village pubs ; visit the elegant spa town of Harrogate; see the historic city of York;enjoy a day at Fountains Abbey and deer park. We are at the gateway to the Yorkshire dales and great walking can be done either from the farm or a short car trip.Our visitors book has lots of ideas for days out.

Guest access

The Hayloft has its own entrance and is separate from the main farm house. We plan to create a private south facing garden in the early Spring of 2018 overlooking the paddocks and pond, for guest to sit out and enjoy the late afternoon and evening sun.

Had a lovely, relaxing, uninterrupted stay. Exactly what we were looking for after a couple of busy weeks organising our wedding. Would consider visiting again for our anniversary. Thanks Angela.

Perfect Holiday Cottage, Perfect Location & Lovely Owners

  • 5 of 5

Angela's holiday cottage is perfect in every way! The Hayloft is cute and cosy and the setting is beautifully picturesque. We had everything we could possibly need for our 1 week stay in Ripon! We also had the added bonus of drawing up our Wills onsite with Angela, which we had already planned to do during our trip and would have meant several trips to Leeds. Angela saved us a huge amount of time, which meant we had more free time for visiting our family and friends and exploring the local area. We would definitely recommend The Hayloft and we'll certainly be back soon. Thank you.
