Welcome

The Hayloft offers extremely spacious, luxurious accommodation with an en suite double bedroom on the ground floor, a twin bedroom, family bathroom, dining kitchen and large lounge on the first floor. It has again been awarded 5 stars with a Gold Award by Visit England for 2017. It is across the courtyard from Flamborough Rigg Cottage, which dates back to the early 1800’s. Situated on the edge of Cropton Forest within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, it offers comfort, every possible facility and wonderful views over the forest and towards Newtondale. 

We have tried to anticipate all of your needs; a local food hamper, a well equipped kitchen, 2 bedrooms with very comfortable beds, a large lounge with Smart TV, a log burner and of course free Wi-Fi. There is also a long list of recommended pubs and restaurants for when you don’t want to cook. The Hayloft is ideally placed for walking dogs (who are most welcome) or mountain biking through the forest, exploring the moors or strolling along the beach on Britain’s most beautiful coastline. 


The Hayloft is a perfect base for families to explore all that North Yorkshire has to offer. We are always here to welcome our guests and then you will only see us if we can give any practical help or provide any local knowledge. We won't intrude!

Finding Us

On arrival in Pickering follow the A170 to the traffic lights and follow the signs to the Steam Railway, Newton upon Rawcliffe and Stape.  After 4 miles or so you will arrive in Newton upon Rawcliffe.


Follow the road through Newton, past the White Swan pub and through Stape which is about a mile and a half further on. Turn left into Middle Head Road which is approximately 500 yards past the red telephone box. 


A few hundred yards along Middle Head Road the road forks where you should keep left. Flamborough Rigg Cottage and The Hayloft is the last property on the left roughly ½ mile down the road and is clearly signed.
