Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cottage in Holmfirth - Brook Hill Cottage

Beautiful, Bright, Rural Cottage - 4 Bed, 2 Bath on north edge of Peak District

Brook Hill Cottage is nestled in the hamlet of Carlecotes, at the northern edge of the Peak District, where the counties of West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire and Derbyshire meet. The cottage is a perfect base for exploring the Peak District National Park and Yorkshire surroundings and has been furnished and equipped to make you feel at home from the moment you walk through the door. This 4 bedroom, semi-detached house is available all year around for self-catering holiday lets.

The house was completely renovated in 2013 and now offers bright, modern accommodation, whilst remaining sympathetic with the local architecture. Heating and hot water are provided by biomass boiler which is also supplemented with by solar heated water. In addition, there is a log burning stove in the living room to ensure the cosiest of evenings. All utilities, fuel for the boiler and linen are included in the price of your stay (a spare set of linen is provided and there is a washing machine, tumble drier, ironing board and iron with washing powder provided, should you wish to change sheets and towels during your stay). We will also provide 2 baskets of logs for the burner and information as to where you can buy wood more locally, if needed.

Downstairs the layout is bright and open plan, with natural light flooding in from French windows and skylights. Glass sliding doors allow the living room to be separated off if required, without blocking out any light. The kitchen is fitted with the usual all mod cons, including dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave, double oven and induction hob. It is also very well equipped with pots, pans, utensils, plastic storage boxes etc and a supply of cleaning products and dishwasher tablets. The dining area provides plenty of space for 8 people to sit down for a meal.

There are 4 bedrooms at Brook Hill Cottage sleeping 4-8 people (+ one baby). The master bedroom has a king-size double bed, en suite shower-room and ample space for a travel cot if required. 2 further double bedrooms and one twin room share use of a family bathroom with shower over a bath. Both bathrooms have under-floor heating and heated towel rails.

A utility room leading off the dining area provides additional fridge and freezer space, washing machine, tumble drier, ironing board, iron, clothes airer and plenty of space for drying or storing walking and/or sports kit. There is also a downstairs loo and a secure garage with flat access through to the back garden, big enough for a car and several bikes or other sports equipment. 2 to 3 cars can be parked on the gravel drive at the front. The back garden has a small area of lawn and a gravelled area with outdoor table and chairs, BBQ and space for petanque.

Pets - we welcome well-behaved pets but ask, for the comfort of future guests, that these are please kept on the ground floor, off the furniture and not left in the house by themselves.

The renovation of the house has been undertaken whilst being mindful of the environmental impact, both in terms of climate change and using a design that is in-keeping with the rest of the village. Many of the building materials have been salvaged and recycled from other outbuildings that were taken down as part of the renovation or from the farm next door.

Situated close to the major routes between Sheffield, Manchester and Leeds, all three cities and surrounds are easily accessible by car. Local towns of Holmfirth and Penistone offer plenty of places to shop, eat and drink.

National Route 68 of the National Cycle Network is known as the Pennine Cycleway, West Yorkshire Cycle Route, Route 627 starts in Kirkburton and takes Shepley and Millhouse Green before connecting to the Trans Pennine Trail. There is also access to the Trans-Pennine Trail within 1 km of the Cottage which provides a safe environment for learner cyclists of all ages to practice their skills. There is also access to the Pennine Way at Torside reservoir, about 15km away. We have plentiful maps and local guidebooks which are available for guests to use.

Brook Hill Cottage is owned and managed by the Bailey family. Malcolm and Angela, both retired teachers, live in the village and can help with any queries you have during your stay. Their children, Sarah and Matthew, live in London and help with management of the cottage and bookings.

About Sarah Bailey

Brook Hill Cottage is true, family business. My parents, brother and I clubbed together to buy the property in 2011 when the previous owner moved away to be closer to his family.

My parents, both retired teachers, live in the hamlet and manage the property on a day-to-day basis.

My brother and I look after the marketing, finances and booking. We both live and work in London, but love our trips back up north to enjoy the fresh air, spectacular views and great local food and days out.

Sarah Bailey purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Sarah Bailey chose Holmfirth

My Mum grew up in the area and we have a close affiliations with the village, having spent our holidays and weekends away there for as long as I can remember. Brook Hill Cottage came up for sale a few years ago, after the then owner, who had been in the house since 1954, sadly lost his wife and decided to move closer to his son.

At that time, house needed complete modernisation. We thought that, if we bought it, we could make sure that this was done in a way that way in-keeping with the character of the village. For the time being, we have decided to run it as a holiday let, so other people come and enjoy this wonderful part of the world that we all love.

Mum and Dad have now retired to the village and have overseen the complete modernisation and renovation of the house. They look after the property a day-to-day basis and are responsible for the warm welcome you will receive when you arrive.

What makes this cottage unique

The universal appeal of our cottage is its quiet location in a rural hamlet, with great views over green fields and plentiful farm and wildlife. We have had rabbits and hares in the garden, owls in the woods, a flock a sparrows that visit the bird feeders throughout the day, and regular spottings of lapwings, curlews, kestrels and twite. There are also some very fluffy chickens that occasionally pop over the wall from the house down the road for a peck around the garden.

As a family of keen cyclists and hikers, our initial intention was to create a holiday let that had great facilities for outdoor activities (laundry, drying area, hose down area and secure storage in the garage), but would offer a high quality, comfortable, real home from home in which you could get cosy and warm at the end of a day outside. But even if you are not into your sports, there is plenty to recommend Brook Hill Cottage for your stay, with original stone work walls, wood burner, comfy sofas, beds and bedding, underfloor heating in the bathrooms and dining area, views out over the fields and eco-heating system based on a biomass boiler and boosted by solar panels.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the perfect cottage for a relaxing weekend away. Generously kitted out with everything you could possibly need and beautifully refurbished, it's very homely with a great sized kitchen/dining area, lounge with log fire and very comfortable bedrooms. It didn't feel too big for just the two of us but would also be perfect for a bigger group, we could definitely imagine going again with a group of friends. The cottage is situated on a quiet road amongst fields and lovely scenery. We walked around Langsett Reservoir (the perfect walk for non-hikers like us!) but there's all kinds of more serious walking or biking you could do in the nearby area. Holmfirth is nearby for shops, cafés, restaurants etc if you want them, it's certainly worth a wander round. All in all, we highly recommend it, and will be going back ourselves one way another!

GREAT SEPTEMBER BREAK

  • 5 out of 5
The cottage was great, spacious, super clean and everything worked well - including super comfy beds, good plumbing (not always easy to find) and Sarah even arrange beautiful sunny days for us the entire visit. Cottage easily fit one night with 7 guests and no one felt cramped. Kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed communal meals at the wooden table. House had lots of local maps and info so we hade everything we needed for a great visit. Easy access to lots of walking and sightseeing - the Yorkshire Sculpture park was a terrific surprise and not to be missed.

Truly Awesome Place To Stay

  • 5 out of 5
We were very fortunate to be able to secure Brook Hill Cottage for our Kiwi group of 4 couples the week which overlapped when the Tour De France was literally on our Carlecotes doorstep. We found this property meet all our needs and some, exceeding all expectations. The website depicts brilliantly all that is on offer and we would have no hesitation in recommending this place of stay to others. This cottage offered everything and lacked for nothing; it had all the home comforts, was clean, spacious and was a true breath of fresh air from the outside to in. The owners of this property went the extra mile to accommodate our group and we very much appreciated all that they did for us. Thanks once again and to others who are fortunate enough to be able to stay here, you will enjoy all that this region and cottage offers.

Great accommodation, great location

  • 5 out of 5
We just spent the last 3 weeks in this fabulous cottage...we were really sad to leave..it was like a 2nd home, complete with all the amenities you need and the comforts of home. The views from the front and back of the house were lovely. It was great location being on the edge of the Pennines and conveniently midway between Huddersfield and Sheffield. Overall we had a splendid family holiday and would highly recommend the cottage to anyone wishing to stay in this area.

Great Cottage/Great place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
I have nothing but great things to say about our stay at Brookhill Cottage. My husband and I were travelling with our three girls from the USA to visit family in the Huddersfield area. The cottage was plenty big enough for us to sleep, relax and the girls to have their own space. We were greeted upon arrival, given a walk through of the property, there was a great manual in the kitchen that just about answered all of our questions about the property. We arrived in the late evening, we didn't have to worry about finding someplace to buy groceries for the morning as the kitchen was stocked with the basics. The pictures posted on the site were great and accurate but when we arrived the cottage was so much more!! The area around the cottage is beautiful and it was very easy to find our way around to family or site seeing. This property was very clean, I have already recommended it to our family in England and our family in the states, we plan on making future trips and I will definitely be looking to book Brookhill Cottage again.
