Set in rolling countryside on the edge of the owners' working farm, this beautiful cottage provides the ideal base for families and couples to explore this historic part of West Yorkshire
Explore your Yorkshire surroundings or simply sit back and relax when you escape to this beautiful stone cottage at Lightcliffe, just 3 miles from Halifax. The backdrop to the TV series Gentleman Jack, this scenic area offers myriad footpaths and trails to follow by bicycle or on foot. Set on the owners’ farm, the pretty, two-bedroom property sleeps four guests and is approximately 12 miles from the edge of the Peak District National Park.
Plan day trips down to this magnificent area, where you will find many more places to hike and cycle. Visit Folly Dolly Falls, a magical, hidden waterfall near Meltham, 12 miles away, on the fringes of the national park. Also take time out to explore Holmfirth, 13 miles from the cottage, and the site of many scenes from TV comedy Last of the Summer Wine.
Stroll into the bright and beautifully decorated Yorkshire cottage, which still presents hints of its past in its gorgeous beams. Find yourselves in an open-plan kitchen/diner, with generous space for preparing delicious, holiday feasts. Pause at the table in here with a cup of tea and a slice of Yorkshire parkin while supper sizzles in the oven. Lay the table and call your friends and family to join you as soon as your meal is ready. You have a handy washing machine and tumble dryer for muddy clothes after your exhilarating walks and there is also a downstairs WC.
Head through to the lounge after dinner to unwind in comfort. Sink into the soft sofas with your holiday novel for a while; find something to watch on the Smart TV/DVD, which comes with a basic Sky TV package. Open the French windows onto the terrace in here on warm, sunny days.
When the exertions of your day finally catch up with you, climb the stairs to the first floor of the cottage. Settle for the night in either the king-size bedroom, with its vaulted ceiling, or the bunk bedroom. Find the family bathroom here too. Make the most of your private, enclosed courtyard garden as often as possible, and cook supper out on the BBQ on warm evenings. You’ll find parking for up to two cars at the cottage.
