The Experience

A stunning spot, right on the edge of the Peaks. Charming owners Jim and Mary, who live here, have done a grand job converting four cottages, including your listed milking parlour. The sitting room is flooded with light, the feel is solid and homely, sofas are of the completely squishy variety, views are glorious, and games, books and DVDs keep everyone happy. 

The kitchen is filled with all you need for a leisurely supper round the farmhouse table, or a picnic by the barbecue hut outside. A biomass boiler gives you piping hot water, powerful showers and underfloor heating. A hot tub under the stars is shared and there’s a day spa to ease your limbs.

Upstairs you’ll find woollen blankets over feather duvets, deep set windows and more green views. There are stunning walks in any direction with footpaths starting from the door and a good pub just a couple of miles away.

Accommodation

Reviews

For a slice of peace and tranquility, look no further. The self-catering cottages here are beautifully fitted out and carefully maintained, and there's a genuine thought for the environment in the biomass boiler, which allows toasty underfloor heating and a constant supply of hot water. The spa is exquisite and a real surprise addition for what is otherwise a rural farm stay. Wonderful.

Laura, Sawday's inspector

We stayed in Bramble cottage for five days. We arrived on a wet and windy Yorkshire evening and the cottage was ''a port in a storm"'. It is very warm, quiet and comfortable. The cottage is larger than it looks on the website. The kitchen is well equipped and sofa was very comfortable. Our bed, and the quality of linen/towels was excellent. We enjoyed coming back to this lovely cottage.

Location

The neighbourhood

Penistone (reputedly the highest village in England) is the nearest village for shops and restaurants and ten minutes in the car. Here you'll also find a good farmers' market on Thursdays in a beautiful cruck barn. The Windmill Coffee Shop by the wind farm serves good home-cooked food and has a nursery for plants.
