About the property

"Home from home" accommodation, everything a couple needs for a relaxing stay.

Please check our website :

Coachman’s loft is a delightfully spacious first floor conversion of a stone barn dating back over 250 years, situated off the main street in the heart of West Witton in the lee of Penhill. It is a Visit England Four Star Property which comprises a double bedroom with a king size bed, a living area including a kitchen and dining area, and a shower room. Parking is on the adjacent quiet road off the main street.

The Barn is located within the owners’ property which is entered from the well-kept cottage style garden and patio area. There is also space for a summer evening barbeque. Tastefully renovated and recently decorated throughout for the 2016 season the barn conversion offers outstanding accommodation with high quality furnishings and “home from home” facilities. The property is heated throughout by thermostatically controlled electric storage heaters.

The entrance door leads to a hall/lobby area for coats and muddy boots and the accommodation is accessed by wooden and stone stairs. The cosy open plan living area features a sitting area, dining area, a breakfast bar and a well equipped kitchen. Across the landing past the shower room and toilet is the large double bedroom.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick note to say thank you for all you done during our stay. The storage of the bikes was really great!

We found the loft to be clean and well appointed and the tea and cake on arrival was a real treat.

With the location of the loft within West Witton we had no trouble in eating and drinking out! Also we found the location in the dales, ideal for exploring!

We hope to make a return visit for a little longer next time!

Comfortable accommodation awaits

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at the barn conversion of Steve and Carol. The place is spacious, comfortable, tastefuuly fitted out and a real home away from home. It is in a great location, close to all amenities, tourist spots and offers a location for fabulous walks. Steve and Carol are thoughtful hosts who care about providing the best for their guests. We highly recommend this place and would happily return.

Very comfortable accommodation finished to a high standard

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the New Year. It is a lovely property and is actually bigger than the pictures suggest. Very clean, comfortable and well equipped. Carol and Steve gave us a friendly welcome and made the place festive for our stay. It is ideally situated, just off the main road through West Witton, so only a short distance to the Fox and Hounds, which is a great, cosy, traditional pub. The Wensleydale Heifer is just a little further along the main road, which lived up to its reputation for good food. We would highly recommend this property.

lovely accomodation very clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Carol and Steve are very nice hosts, Carols sponge and scones were very well received and enjoyed.

We were shown round rhe loft on arrival and shown the workings of appliances. the information pack was there if needed, puzzles, games, books and information leaflets were all on site.

The local pubs in the village both served food, one even served real ale from a local brewer. All together wonderful.

A wonderful break in the delightful Yorkshire Dales

  • 5 of 5

What a pleasure to find such comfortable accommodation. The barn is cosy, warm and tastefully furnished and the bed was more comfy than ours at home! Everything you could need is provided, all in all it's a home from home. Carol and Steve made us so welcome and we were really appreciative of the bowl of fruit, the pot of tea and delicious cake on our arrival and the surprise treat of warm scones and jam one afternoon. We would certainly recommend Coachman's Loft and thank Carol and Steve for such an enjoyable stay.

Lovely home for our week's holiday

Property is spacious, light and airy, well furnished and equipped. Welcoming, friendly owners while not intruding on our privacy. Thankfully no requests to fill in a visitors book! Beautiful area to explore on foot or with wheels.

West Witton boasts a village shop which is well stocked and has fresh bread, cakes and pastries most days, the Fox and Hounds pub serving real ale and good food and the Wensleydale Heifer an award winning restaurant renowned for its food and hospitality.

There are many walks available directly from the Loft with the popular climb up Penhill, the magnificent Aysgarth Falls or across the River Ure to Castle Bolton and Redmire. Wensleydale is wonderful but a little further afield is Wharfedale and Swaledale should you wish to explore two other magnificent dales. Visit the world renowned Wensleydale Creamery producing "Wallace and Gromit Cheese", Castle Bolton, the town of Richmond, Ripon Cathedral which offer a variety of experiences. The Dales provides a brilliant cycling environment for all capabilities and the owner will store bikes safely and securely for those who wish to re-enact the Grand Depart of the Tour de France 2014.
