Property Details

The Space
The Hayloft has a homely and welcoming feel throughout. A great place to enjoy some well-earned rest, you won’t tire of the beautiful countryside surroundings.

Spacious in layout, the open plan kitchen, dining, and living space is perfect for two guests. In the winter months, you can fire up the log burner and turn on the Alexa enabled flat screen TV for a cosy night in.

The modern kitchen is well equipped for self-catering stays so you’ll have everything you could need to prepare meals easily. The dining area, to the left of the kitchen, includes a dining table and two chairs.

Retreat to the bedroom and you’ll see the double bed which has premium bedding and linens so you can have a blissful night's sleep.

Head to the bathroom and you’ll find a traditional space. Unwind in the bathtub or start your day with a refreshing shower. The room is complete with a basin and WC. Please note that the shower is in the form of an overhead shower.

Excellent stay! Lovely place !






A cosy retreat, warm, clean and well cared for.<br/>Super location. Thanks!






Lovely place, cosy, warm, great location. Very clean and lovely hosts.



Lovely apartment, friendly and helpful host, everything we wanted and needed.






The place is difficult to get to, but it was warm and comfortable.<br/>I would never recommend anyone using Host and Stay. They were not well informed on the property or its location and the amount of email communication was not helpful.



Clean, quiet, comfortable. Great location for Otley, Ilkley, Skipton and just 5 metres from Burley Moor!



Quick response with hosts, very friendly. <br/>Lovely stay, clean and such a beautiful location. <br/>Ideal for a weekend getaway. <br/>Had an amazing stay here.



Stunning location on the moor. Well appointment with all you need for a short stay. Very friendly helpful hosts.<br/>Having to duck heads in the bedroom but we were prepared for that from the listing.



spotless and perfect for a few days peace and quiet<br/>nothing0



A wonderful little place, all the way up a long farm track and nestled into the moor.<br/>Friendly hosts. Very clean. Would recommend.



I loved the location of the property very peaceful and beautiful views of the Yorkshire Dales. A lovely relaxing place to unwind. It is a good location to explore neighbouring beautiful villages and plenty of nice pubs and restaurants.<br/>I think if the property had its own outdoor space that would be nice as to maybe BBQ or just sit and look out at the wonderful views.



It would have been great if we could have dried our towels on a warm towel rail. But a small detail!



we loved everything about it.owners were brilliant.very tidy and comfortable .stunning views.would definitely go back again<br/>there was nothing to dislike tbh



Stayed here to get ready for my wedding. Hosts were super friendly and welcoming, space was perfect for a quiet evening and then beautiful views when people arrived to get ready. So happy with our stay, thank you so much!



Beautiful location. Tastefully converted barn. Fully equipped<br/>Pot holed access road



Beautiful location, with wonderful views.<br/>Clean and comfortable. It was a lovely place to visit for a break.



This property was in a beautiful position litruly on top of lLkley Moor, views from outside fantastic. Property very clean and we'll presented but not very big, but definitely cosy.<br/>Very narrow track/road up to property and didn't like the fact that the hot water and heating are controlled from owners accommodation downstairs.



Beautiful, clean apartment, with everything that we needed, with the bonus of being able to walk out of your door and straight onto the beautiful moorland. The wood burner was a lovely addition too. The only downside was the slightly deceptive £25 additional accidental damage waiver fee, which I think should have been made clearer from the start, or just factored into the original cost to avoid confusion. Otherwise, an excellent little place to stay.



Location and real fire.<br/>Road up to it!



The bed was very comfortable. It was clean with lovely views. The information link sent to me with places nearby was very helpful.<br/>It was icy so we couldn't take the car up the hill and had to walk most of the way. Could use little sachets of sauce packets and hot chocolate as you Don't wanna buy a big one for a short stay. Other than that it was overall good and we enjoyed it ??



Very good






The Hayloft was delightful and the owners helpful and friendly.<br/>The home was well appointed and scrupulously clean. Salt and pepper would be a good addition to the cupboard, it's not something you think to bring!<br/>The only downside was the endless repetitive long emails from Host and Stay that didn't even send the correct links!






Excellent remote location with splendid views. Great area for walking - the footpath onto the moor is right outside the front door. Cottage itself is very warm and well kitted out and the hosts are very friendly (The Hayloft is self contained but they live in the main part of the house downstairs). Considering the remote location, the wifi is very good. Good pubs in the area - The Hermit Inn is walking distance and highly recommended, also the Flying Duck in Ilkley which has its own microbrewery on site.<br/>Just one very minor thing - the bedroom has a vaulted ceiling so need to stoop when walking around.



clean and comfortable<br/>access road was a bit tricky, dogs were barking a bit






Cozy and nice cottage type flat. peaceful surrendering. kitchen is fully equipped. bed was super comfortable. Had a serene two weeks in Yhe Hayloft.<br/>my hosts ( owners) were kind and very tentative about making sure I am comfortable. <br/>thank you Sally & Chris and Host& Stay team.






Fabulous apartment- well appointed and really comfortable stay. Location is quiet and has opportunity for lovely walks and lots of great places to visit close by. Definitely recommend.
