We travelled to the Yorkshire Dales for Christmas and decided to extend our stay. So was looking for a last minute rental - we came across Hayloft cottage - what a jewel. Just 4 miles from the well serviced town Kirkby Stephen (fab butchers, bakers, chemist, co-op), Hayloft cottage was a wonderful find. Exceptionally clean, well equipped kitchen, good bathroom facilities with a great shower, a good size living area, great bedroom (we had 2 6ft wide beds made up - but the room will accommodate multiple configurations) and a warm and cozy home. The owners Diane and Michael are wonderful hosts - friendly, informative and nothing too much trouble. The views from the upstairs living area are fabulous and the cottage is in a great location for walks with (or without!) dogs. I cannot praise this home enough - great location for Lake District and the Penine Way area and the Yorkshire Dales. We had a fabulous new year stay and hope to return in the not too distant future.
