Nestled in the hamlet of Carlecotes, Brook Hill Cottage is your home from home and a perfect base for exploring the Peak District National Park and Yorkshire surroundings. This 4 bedroom semi-detached house is available all year around for self-catering holiday lets.

The house was extended and superbly 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 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 more locally, if needed.

The cottage sleeps 4-8 people. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Pets - we welcome well-behaved pets (over 1 year old) 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. Please make sure your animals have been inoculated and have been treated for fleas etc.

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.

We are glad you enjoyed your new year's stay with us, and thank you for the constructive comments about the few pans that were not compatible with the induction hob. We have checked them all now, and are investing a few more items as you suggested, so there are no more issues with the hob turning itself off. Please do think of us is you are staying in the area again.
