COVID-19 TEMPORARY CLOSURE
Following government guidelines we hope to re-open the Hayloft on Saturday 4 July. We ask all customers with bookings up to and including 3 July to contact us to rebook their stay at a later date. At the moment our cancellation policy is in place for bookings after this date. This is under regular review depending on official advice about essential travel and social distancing.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Stay well and healthy.

We are proud to announce that Sarah has won The Telegraph's Lockdown Award for Inspiring Business Owner. In early April, Sarah came up with an idea to offer a free two-night stay to an NHS worker once the Covid-19 pandemic has ended. She launched #treatournhs on our Instagram account. The response was incredible, with hundreds of entries, but there could only be one winner, so she set about spreading the word, inviting other holiday let owners to come on board.
We now have over 1000 giveaways with bnbs, chateaus, cabins and homes offering holidays to NHS staff. As one nurse described it: "It's a light at the end of the tunnel." That number is still growing, following Sarah's appearances on Radio 5 Live and BBC News, articles in the Guardian and Hello to name but a few.
If you want to offer your holiday let or if you want to nominate an NHS worker for the chance to win a holiday go to Instagram and search #treatournhs. All the giveaways are listed there.
On our Instagram page @hayloftdevon you can see how to add your property to the list. In the stories highlights there are FAQs and details on what to do. Good luck, stay well and thanks for reading.

"What a find! I can honestly say that this is the most incredible place we have ever stayed. It's tucked away, serene, beautifully designed and everything is of the highest quality, including the welcome from lovely hosts. We didn't want to leave! Ashburton is perfectly placed to enjoy everything Devon has on offer. Thanks again to Joe and Sarah for creating such a beautiful retreat."
