Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
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 stays and 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 a state of the art 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, and a plentiful supply of fire wood are included in the price of your stay.
The cottage sleeps 4-8 people. The master bedroom has a king-size double bed, en suite bathroom and ample space for a travel cot if required. 2 further double bedrooms and one twin room (which can be arranged as a double if required) share use of a family bathroom with shower over a bath. Both bathrooms have under-floor heating.
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 well equipped with all mod cons, including dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave, double oven and induction hob. 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 an additional toilet, washer/ drier and plenty of space for drying or storing walking and/or sports kit. There is also a secure garage with flat access through to the back garden, big enough for a car and several bikes or other sports equipment. 2 to3 cars can be parked on the gravel drive at the front.
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.
