About Fiona Byrd

We moved from London to Yorkshire in 2006 and bought the property in 2008. It ticked all the boxes: accessibility, space and peaceful surroundings and is the perfect antidote to our busy working lives. We live in the adjacent Dower House with our labrador.

Jonny and Fiona.

Why Fiona Byrd chose Dewsbury

The property has all the benefits of being in a rural and peaceful location, and yet is easily accessible via excellent transport links (car, rail and air).

What makes this cottage unique

The property is particularly well situated to visit the new Hepworth Wakefield museum opened in 2011 to much critical acclaim, as well as the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. It is an excellent base from which there are lots of walks and cycle routes nearby, as well as places of interest/ activities to enjoy locally and further afield.

What a lovely cottage we thought it a lovely place to use as a base

  • 5 of 5

Really good property, very well equipped and cosy, with plenty of space to not be on top of each other. We used it as a base to meet up with family in both Yorkshire and Lancashire and would do so again. The kitchen was well equipped and enabled us to entertain family as well.

Wonderful cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a beautiful cottage and made our trip to England perfect. Fiona is so great and easy to work with. My only regret is that we were so busy visiting people/sights that we didn't spend more time in the cottage. It had everything we needed for a terrific vacation. Thank you Fiona! I really want to return someday.

Gorgeous cottage

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. The cottage had everything we needed (apart from a bread knife) and lots of lovely touches to make you welcome. The only downside for us is that there is nowhere private to let the dogs out for a comfort break, so you always have to take them out on lead. This isn't ideal first thing in the morning/last thing at night when all the garden areas are shared so you have to risk being seen in your pyjamas/wellies. Only downside to a gorgeous location with lots of lovely walks from the door and within a short drive too.

A splendid stay in a perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at the cottage and we enjoyed it even more this time! With just the two of us and one doggy, it is ideal and suits our purposes perfectly. It's well equipped, comfortable and very cosy and Johnny and Fiona (and mum) are excellent hosts supplying extra bits and pieces we asked for.

We'd love to stay again next November but booking is not operational yet. Thanks for a wonderful stay. Fiona I'd be grateful if you'd contact me re one or two things. I no longer have an email address or phone number for you

a beautiful fully equipped hideaway

  • 5 of 5

A stunning hide away from all the hustle and bustle but within 10 minutes of civilisation.

we had no problem finding it ,just be wary its down a rather narrow track at the end of a road,ok in summer but could be a little tricky in winter if youre not in a 4x4.

plenty of walks to try immediatley from your front door.

A fantastic fully equipped annex with stunning views and everything you could want .

luxurious comfort in easy reach of Wakefield ,Barnsley ,Sheffield and Leeds , 1 minutes drive from the motorway junction.

What you have to realise is living quarters are at ground level and bedrooms and bathrooms are below via a rather steep staircase, so if you have pets or children you have to take this into consideration.We had to move a toybox to create a barrier prevent the rather old german shepherd trying to join us down stairs .( pets arent allowed downstairs).

Fiona was brilliant , excellent communication and information inside,and even whem the dog scratched the inside of the room door door in a panic when we went out it wasnt a problem.( if there are any incidents theres ionformation how to deal with it without it spoiling your holiday)

I would fully recomend the place for a relaxing stay.
