About The Hayloft at Flamborough Rigg

The Hayloft at Flamborough Rigg offers a luxury 5-Star Gold standard of accommodation in the North York Moors National Park. With views of nearby Cropton Forest, there is room for four guests to stay in two bedrooms making it perfect for couples and families who want somewhere to stay which is extremely comfortable but also has character. The charming cottage is in the peaceful hamlet of Stape, at the end of a quiet road with no passing traffic.

Pickering is around eight miles south of The Hayloft, or an easy 15-minute drive. The market town is an excellent place to stock up on provisions, especially if you go on Monday market day and there are several popular pubs and cafes happy to serve you if you don't feel like cooking yourself. Pickering Castle, the Beck Isle Museum and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway are other fantastic attractions in Pickering.

Cropton and Dalby Forests are wonderful places to walk, bird watch and ride a bike. Parts of Dalby were used as the setting for the Forbidden Forest in the Harry Potter films, and you can feel the magic as you walk past towering trunks and through quiet glades. You'll also find a Go Ape adventure and a useful visitor centre where friendly staff will do their best to help you get the most fun from your time in the area.

Spend a day or two exploring the magnificent stretch of coast that is part of the National Park. Sandsend is particularly lovely, with its dog friendly beach but you may also want to visit the famous seaside resort town of Whitby, working off a seafood lunch by climbing the 199 steps to the impressive cliff top ruins of Whitby Abbey.

Thousands of years of human habitation has created the landscape of the North York Moors, filling you with a sense that although you are just visiting, you are still leaving your own indelible mark behind. There are 842 Scheduled Monuments and over 3,000 listed buildings within the borders of the National Park. If that is not enough, then you can happily spend a day or two exploring the ancient City of York with its magnificent Minster, Viking Centre, National Railway Museum, fantastic shops, cafes and restaurants.

Other attractions within easy reach of The Hayloft include Castle Howard, the market town of Helmsley, the Walled Gardens at Scampston and the pretty little villages of Hutton-le-Hole and Thornton le Dale.

The owners of The Hayloft have taken immense care to ensure their guests have a comfortable stay, which is one reason they get so many repeat bookings. Whether you are a couple having a romantic holiday in Yorkshire, a family, or friends, you can be confident of a warm Yorkshire welcome.

Accommodation Comprises:

Visit England has recognised the high standard of accommodation at The Hayloft with a 5-Star Gold Award. You can be assured the owners take great care to ensure their guests are happy, incorporating touches like a generous welcome hamper and a lot of local information to help you enjoy every minute of your stay. The "upside down" layout makes the most of the light and lovely garden views.

Ground Floor:

  • Master double bedroom which is spacious and benefits from natural light and lovely views thanks to double French doors that open into the garden. Sanded oak floorboards tone with the light oak bed, and there is good storage including bedside tables and reading lights. The bedroom has an en suite with shower, WC, hand basin and under floor heating.

First Floor:

  • Living area with a log burner, plush couches, a television with DVD player, and magazines and books for guests to enjoy during their stay.
  • Open plan kitchen/diner packed with country charm, with its sanded oak floors and wooden countertops, and white fitted cabinets that amplify the natural light and make it a very pleasant space in which to cook and eat. It is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave and washing machine, as well as a DAB radio with docking for iPhone so you can listen to music while you cook and eat, making it a social rather than a utilitarian space.
  • Twin bedroom with two full-sized single beds, a dressing table and chair. A large window overlooks the garden. The fresh country decor makes the room appropriate for either children or adults, adding to The Hayloft's appeal.
  • Family bathroom with a shower over the double-ended bath, hand basin and under floor heating.

Outside: The Hayloft at Flamborough Rigg has a private fully enclosed garden that is mainly lawn edged with mature trees and shrubs. A sunny paved area with garden furniture and a pergola is a lovely spot to enjoy a barbecue or a quiet drink. There is private off-street parking.
