This wonderful, first floor barn conversion cottage in Fearby, near Masham, can sleep two people in one bedroom.

The Hay Loft is a delightful, single-storey barn conversion overlooking the village green in Fearby, near Masham. Set solely over the first floor, this self-catering apartment offers one double bedroom, boasting a feature window overlooking the green, and a bathroom featuring a freestanding bath. There is an open plan living area with a kitchen, a dining area boasting views across the owners’ gardens, and a cosy sitting area. Outside, there is a front enclosed patio with furniture and off road parking for two cars. The Hay Loft is the perfect base for a romantic break exploring North Yorkshire, all year round.


Very dissapointed at lack of comfortable relaxing space
We arrived at the Hay loft on 5th of November just before 3pm. We had booked for 2 nights. At first glance the property looked good. went in and initially thought it was massive but unfortunately the owner had left open the adjoining door to their own living space and when that was closed we realised the real size. The bathroom was OK the bedroom was small but the bed was also a small double. I lay on it and my feet stuck over the end. (I am six foot ! Not a great size in this day and age) The living area/kitchen was disappointing as the thought of trying to enjoy a nice meal with wine which we had brought along with us was not possible the sitting area was an old double chair (a sofa would have been better) hardly acceptable for two people. The TV was tiny and according to the note was faulty! Really!! new modern TVs are not expensive. We decided that rather than face an uncomfortable night we would travel home which took about an hour. I contacted Sykes cottages (the agent) and they offered to refund their fee of ?39 however we paid over ?200 for the 2 days rent. It certainly was not worth the money. I went back to their site and clicked on the 7th November which came up at ?39. We were considerably overcharged.

The very friendly and helpful owners contributed to what was a delightful holiday. Our choice proved to be ideal for exploring both the Yorkshire Dales and Moors.
Mr Merralls

This property is the best place we have stayed at; cosy, warm, quaint and beautifully decorated.
Mr Thompson

The owner was a wonderful host who made us feel very welcome. The accommodation was just perfect, fantastic location and the attention to detail in the property was lovely. Would definitely recommend.
Mrs Gubbins

Nothing was too much trouble for the owners who live next door. The Hay Loft is a lovely cottage with every feature that you could wish for. We will come back!
