Region: The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers. Town: Situated on the southern edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, the small village of Lastingham has a unique and fascinating history. A monastery was founded in 654 by St Cedd and flourished until the Danes destroyed it in the 9th century. In 1078, Stephen, the Abbot of Whitby, persuaded William I to restore Lastingham. However, Stephen and his monks left abruptly to set up a new monastery in York, leaving only the crypt and the apse of the church complete. Amazingly, the crypt has survived unaltered over the centuries. Local attractions include the North Yorkshire Moors, Pickering Castle, the Wheeldale Roman Road and the Rievaulx Terrace and Temples. For lovers of the Great Outdoors, there are plenty of beautiful and scenic walks leading directly from the village.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Couples get away
We stayed here in September. What an amazing find. Cottage was lovely. Had everything we need and a bottle of wine was there on arrival, lovely touch. Lastingham is a quiet village but the setting, people and pub make it a lovely place to be. We had a great time and will definitely be back!!

Quiet week away to explore and unwind
This is a lovely peaceful and safe little hideaway with beautiful veiws and wonderfull walks nearby and on the moors which we really enjoyed, tastefully decorated very cosy and safe with off road parking, the owners are there if you need them just a knock away, the bottle off wine a lovely touch thankyou, if you are against the cruelty of down and feather bedding as I am or simply allergic then bring your own bedding ad I did, there is no phone signal whatsoever and Internet bad as well, not that we bother when on holiday but it's handy to keep in touch with family ect, a lamp would be nice in sitting area as overhead lights harsh at night, we brought the bedroom one in, would recommend this place as it's ideal for walkers and peace seekers and those in love with nature ect

Deliciously cosy
The village of Lastingham is a hidden gem in the North York Moors. A lovely quiet village with an old church 'St Mary' with the 'The Blacksmiths Arms' opposite. All thats missing is a cricket pitch and village pond! The graveyard is fascinating and it was good to see the church is being used for what it was built for - Christian worship. The fairly recently renovated 'The Hayloft' was lovely accommodation to stay in, best described as cosy. Mrs Eros and I stayed there at the start of an unseasonably cold April with biting east wind and the warm of 'The Hayloft' was a joy to retire to after a day walking on the moors. The premises are very tastefully done with a log burning stove giving off great heat. We loved the magnificent hand-crafted artwork on one of the bedroom walls. Kitchen and bathroom have all mod cons. The front door looks out on a beck (small river or burn) with a good view to the forested hillside on the south side of the village. The bottle of wine awaiting our arrival was a nice touch and greatly appreciated. Hope to return.

Good location, lovely little property
This was a very clean, well equipped property ideal for two people in an excellent location. Good pub less than five minutes walk, great walks from the front door. Owners very welcoming but unobtrusive , would be happy to return.

A cosy and quiet haven
My wife and I wanted a base from which to explore the area and this was ideal. Clean and well furnished with a well equipped kitchen for self-catering. The bed was very good and there was plenty of hot water for showers etc. There was a dedicated off street parking space protected by a gate but we were able to come and go as we pleased, including slipping out for dawn photography.

Fabulous White Xmas
We stayed at the Hayloft for a week over Xmas 2009 and had a brilliant time ! The hosts were most welcoming and extremely helpful . We had 6 inches of snow which created a Nardiaesque theme , we went Tabogganing on the nearby slopes and it was exhilarating to return to the Hayloft and stoke up the log burning fire ! We made excursions to other villages through the snow , these made for some picturesue photo opportunities which we are sure will be just as pretty at any other time of year ! The local pub is an absolute joy and must to visit providing excellent and varied fare ! In conclusion , a stay at the Hayloft is highly recommended for a total ' Chillax ' break or weekend . The highlight for us was being able to come in from the winter chill and relax infront of the log burner ! it so added to the ambience of an already fantastic getaway location !

Peaceful hideaway in a friendly village on the edge of the moors
Excellent accommodation for two in a quiet and secluded village on edge of the North York Moors. Owners live next to property and are on hand if there are any problems, although we didn't have any. We planned to self-cater but village pub was so welcoming that we ate there on several nights. Very good food and they even do a fish and chip take out! It only takes 5 minutes to walk onto the moors and we managed two circular walks without needing to use the car. However, the car was needed to explore further afield. Altogether a very relaxing and enjoyable stay.

Summer Holiday!!
We were greeted when we arrived and was shown round the cottage, we were very impressed. The cottage was very clean and well equipped, it had everything we needed in fact it was almost home from home.The cottage was in a very quiet village, the local pub was a 2min. walk. We shopped in the local town about 10 mins. drive. The walking was good but unfortunately the weather wasn't the best to do a lot of walking (not the fault of Sykes's) In all a very enjoyable Cottage & location. Would defiantly go back again.
