Able to sleep four people across two bedrooms, this pretty Staintondale cottage is a wonderful place for a family vacation.

Well placed in the heart of the North York Moors, the property has been restored, decorated and furnished to a high standard throughout. With cosy, comfortable accommodation for up to four people, the property also boasts an electric wood-burning effect stove and exposed beams. With so much to do in the surrounding area, this cottage makes a great place for a family vacation, whether you plan on holidaying in summer or... winter.

Town: Located on the North Yorkshire Moors and only half a mile from the coast is the pretty village of Staintondale. Set midway between the fishing town of Whitby - with its famous Abbey - and the spa town of Scarborough - with its theatres and promenade entertainment - this peaceful little village offers the best of both worlds. With the Staintondale Shire Horse Farm just a short drive away, there is a wide range of things to do in the area. There is also a network of footpaths and bridleways that run through the village, leading into the glorious countryside beyond. This really is a wonderful location with plenty to see for the whole family.

The cottage was warm, clean and welcoming. Everything you would need was supplied in the kitchen. Real Christmas tree was a lovely touch to our New Year break. Owners and their lovely dog were very friendly. Great location for many walks but remember essentials as no local shops. We travelled in to Whitby to Sainsburys to stock up for our stay. Would stay again

The owners of the cottages lived right opposite so if you needed anything they were available. Our 2 small dogs loved the cottage and enclosed garden. The cottage was immaculate.

Just had a lovely 3 days at this cottage. it was spotlessly clean and had a lovely new feeling. The bathroom and kitchen were sparkling and well fitted out - we couldn't ask for more in terms of amenities either. It has everything you need and is very pet friendly. Definitely 4 star at least. The locals were very welcoming and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our visits to the local pubs and walks around the area. For exploring the North Yorkshire Moors this was a perfect location to stay. Would definitely go back.

The Hayloft is a lovely cottage with excellent standards of decor and facilities. The interior mixes clean and modern with a traditional building fantastically. Location is very well placed for Whitby and Scarborough, with local beaches even closer. The owners were friendly and welcoming, and the farm dog even more so! The booking process through Sykes Cottages was easy and friendly, and the documentation, directions, etc all very good.
Enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage

The owners have done an excellent job in converting this former hayloft into a very comfortable and well equipeed holiday cottage. The ground floor is open plan with a spacious kitchen area and a sitting and dining area. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. Outside the back door there is an enclosed patio/garden with picnic bench.
The owners and their dog are ver friendly and helpful. They only live just across the courtyard so are easy to contact if any problems.
The cottage is great for dog owners as they allow up to two dogs to stay and reading through the guest book this was very much appreciated. Their is a lot of useful information in the cottage for dog owners as well.
It is very well situated, close to the coast and a short drive to Scarborough and Whitby.
Would certainly recommend this cottage and would like to come back here.

We have three dogs ao are always looking for cottages where we can take the dogs. The cottage was very clean and had a secure rear garden where we could let the dogs out. It was ideally situated for local walks or getting out to see the eastern part of the North York Moors. We will definately be going back again
Our stay at Hayloft cottage was very relaxing
Left on 09/15/2010 for a stay in July 2010 | David Nelson
Our stay at Hayloft cottage was excellent. The cottage itself was picture postcard perfect and it's location was idyllic with fantastic views down the yorkshire coast to the sea. With a young family we were able to safely take long walks down the country roads as there was little if any traffic for most of the time. It served us as a great base to visit all the beautiful fishing villages dotted along the coast as well as the larger towns of Whitby and Scarborough. The kids loved the holiday and our youngest fell in love with the owners pet dog, who is quite possibely the most patient and gentle dog I have ever come in contact with. All in all a fantastic place to stay.
