Had a lovely, relaxing, uninterrupted stay. Exactly what we were looking for after a couple of busy weeks organising our wedding. Would consider visiting again for our anniversary. Thanks Angela.

Perfect Holiday Cottage, Perfect Location & Lovely Owners

  • 5 of 5

Angela's holiday cottage is perfect in every way! The Hayloft is cute and cosy and the setting is beautifully picturesque. We had everything we could possibly need for our 1 week stay in Ripon! We also had the added bonus of drawing up our Wills onsite with Angela, which we had already planned to do during our trip and would have meant several trips to Leeds. Angela saved us a huge amount of time, which meant we had more free time for visiting our family and friends and exploring the local area. We would definitely recommend The Hayloft and we'll certainly be back soon. Thank you.

Better than home!

  • 5 of 5

So happy to have found Angela's homestead as an alternative to the hotel we had previously booked. Pictures and descriptions are spot on. In addition to The Hayloft, a two-bedroom unit, The Barn, adjoins, sleeping 5. We barely saw our "neighbors" during our four nights. Cooked in three of them as all necessities were provided. I envy Angela's balance of life and work at this wonderful enclave, and hope to return.

Lovely and quite location, fantastic stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed here last Tuesday to Sunday and didn't want to leave!

Fantastic location close to Ripon which has some great pubs and restaurants, not far from Harrogate and York and only a hour and half drive from the seaside town of Whitby.

It was like a home from home in Hayloft, everything we needed was there.

Will be booking again for sure :-)
