Thurst House Farm

Bed & Breakfast

A solid Pennine farmhouse with generous bedrooms, gracious hosts and beautiful views. Fabulous walking in the local Yorkshire countryside


2 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


This solid Pennine farmhouse, its stone mullion windows denoting 17th-century origins, is English to the core. Your warm, gracious hosts give guests a cosy and carpeted sitting room with an open fire in winter and shelves of books to browse; bedrooms are equally generous, with inviting, very comfortable brass beds, lovely antique linen and fresh flowers. The garden has masses of roses, sunny places to sit, a hammock to snooze in and beautiful views. Tuck into homemade bread, marmalade and jams at breakfast, and good traditional English dinners, too – just the thing for walkers who’ve trekked the Calderdale or the Pennine Way.

The handsome old stone, mullion-windowed building has huge kerb appeal and the interior doesn’t disappoint. The décor is deeply traditional, with family photos on the walls and window ledges, along with fresh flowers and magazines. Lovers of antiques will appreciate the tasteful furniture accumulated over a lifetime. Long views from most rooms over hill and moor promote a sense of stillness, and although the house is on a lane, it’s traffic-light. A range of therapies along with the ‘no TV’ policy and restricted broadband makes Thurst House Farm a proper retreat from modern life

What a wonderful, relaxing and comfortable stay in the holiday cottage. Having stayed in the house with a lovely B & B experience last year Judith showed us the holiday cottage and we thought we must try it out. We brought our dog which was great and all the comforts of home were provided with a lovely view of the rolling hills. Great walks right on the doorstep or with a little drive away. Also we were offered an opt in for breakfast in the house if we wanted a more comfortable stay.
