A special hideaway in the Yorkshire Dales
About Fiona Hoole
Our family have lived in this house since 1886. It has seen many changes over the years and since 2014 guests have been able to enjoy The Hayloft - a private guest annex at the end of our Dales farmhouse.
Fiona Hoole purchased this House in 1886
What makes this House unique
We want Hayloft to be the perfect retreat and that's why we provide the convenience of a continental breakfast with all the privacy of your own home away from home. I'm going to let our guests do the talking here: "The Hayloft instantly welcomed us and we felt at home since we arrived... brownies, wine and wood stove helped too! Stargazing, walking and relaxing by the fire... what a restorative and rejuvenating time we've had!" If this sounds like your idea of a perfect weekend then I think you will love our little bolthole too.

Hayloft is a beautiful cottage in an excellent location. If you are looking for somewhere which is comfortable, quiet, furnished to a very high standard and spotlessly clean, then this is perfect. The little touches such as supplies of toilet rolls, washing up liquid, bubble bath etc were very welcome as they are so often missing in holiday cottages. Fiona had also provided bread, milk, butter, cheese, jam etc. for our arrival. We loved everything about the place and the location was ideal for walks straight from the front door into the countryside. Lots to do in the area, we would have liked a second week. Highly recommended 😀�
Superb cottage in an excellent location. Very quiet and peaceful. Cottage facilities were spot-on! Beautiful villages all around and plenty of picturesque walks. Would definitely recommend. If we revisited the Dales, this cottage would be top of our list for accommodation.
Perfect little home away from home with lots of luxury touches!
My husband and I visited for a weekend and we absolutely loved the place. We felt welcome from the moment we booked, communication with Fiona was really easy and on arrival it really felt like everything was just ready and waiting for us.
We loved all of the little extra touches like heated flooring in the kitchen, cake, tea and a bottle of wine waiting for us, breakfast ready for the first morning, the fire already prepared in the stove and even bubble bath ready in the bathroom!
The cottage is beautiful, cosy and comfortable and even though the photos on here look great, it was even nicer in real life. We managed to get out and do some walking in the snow with the help of the guides and maps in the cottage which were really useful. The scenery is beautiful and paths run literally right from the doorstep. It was heavenly to return to somewhere warm and cosy and light the fire.
We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend. We hope to visit again soon!
Thank you Fiona!
Absolutely beautiful. The cottage was more than equipped; and with the most attention to detail than any other cottage I have stayed at. Apparently it rained all weekend.....we didn't notice it!
Hayloft is our little retreat from the world - so glad you enjoyed your weekend here - and could admire the glorious Yorkshire weather from beside the wood burner! Many thanks, Fiona
Lovely place for two in the Dales!
Beautifully equipped converted "barn" (there is nothing barn-like about it). Great living space, huge bedroom and a very smart kitchen. Very quiet, decent walking from the door, and local eating options if you feel the need to go out out to eat.
Cosy, luxurious and peaceful
Booked this for a birthday weekend away and was much bigger than it looks on the pics. Delighted with the cottage and attention to detail made it feel like a home from home. We were rained off any serious walks but was perfect for grassington so turned it into a food themed break instead. Recommend supplies from kheelam farm shop in skipton on the way, great butcher and great deli in Grassington.
A car is recommended but we can pick guests up from the bus in Hebden or Grassington. Nearest train station is Skipton.
It's a 10 minute walk to our nearest village of Hebden with The Clarendon Pub and Old School House cafe. It's 5 minutes in the car to large village of Grassington. Skipton is 25 minutes away by car and Harrogate 35 minutes away.
The Hayloft is tucked away in the quiet hamlet of Hole Bottom. It is perfect for walkers and has a footpath outside the garden gate. It's a 10 minute walk down to Hebden (pub and cafe) and a beautiful 35 minute walk over the tops to Grassington - our largest local village with wide range of shops, pubs, cafes and National Park centre.
