Lofthouse is a small village in Nidderdale in the Harrogate district of North Yorkshire, England about a mile south of Middlesmoor. It has a primary school, memorial village hall and public house, The Crown Hotel. The post office in the village closed in August 2014, and was replaced by a new post office in the cafe at nearby How Stean Gorge.The toponym is from the Old Norse lopt hús, meaning "houses with lofts".Lofthouse is the principal settlement in the civil parish of Fountains Earth. Historically Fountains Earth was a township in the ancient parish of Kirkby Malzeard in the West Riding of Yorkshire. The parish took its name from Fountains Abbey, which owned the land in the Middle Ages and established granges at Lofthouse, Bouthwaite and other places in the township. Fountains Earth became a civil parish in 1866, and in 1974 became part of the new Harrogate district in North Yorkshire. The parish now shares the Upper Nidderdale grouped parish council with the parishes of Stonebeck Down and Stonebeck Up.
