Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Esperance, Australia2 contributions
My husband and I stayed in Bramble Cottage from 22nd December 2023 till 19th January 2024. We were visiting our family in the UK from Western Australia and wanted a home from home experience with our own front door. The owners, Mary and Jim, were very communicative from the beginning and answered all our queries promptly via email. Bramble Cottage was so welcoming and homely and there was even a beautiful Christmas tree in the cottage, and a thoughtful welcome pack which was much appreciated. There was everything we needed in there and it was a pleasure to go back to in the evening as it was so cosy and warm with the underfloor heating. The bed was so comfortable. The pulley for drying clothes was very handy too! The scenery around Smallshaw Cottages is absolutely gorgeous, surrounded by moorland and farms. If you need to get away and have peace and quiet then this is the place for you. We didn’t have a spa experience as it’s not our ‘thing’, but there were plenty of other guests enjoying the hot tub, spas etc. We really enjoyed our time at Smallshaw. Thankyou Mary, Jim and your wonderful staff for our memorable stay.

Much needed pre-Christmas time out. 3 hour thermal experience, sheer bliss. Lovely range of saunas, steam rooms etc. My favourite though is sitting outdoors in the hot tub with the rain pelting down and the wild winds blowing feeling that you are million miles away from the commercial nonsense of this festive time…heaven.

Wonderful stay. Stunning location, superb accomodation was gorgeous and fully equipped with everything we could need for a weekend away. The relaxing massage and visit to the spa was 100% worth the extra money too. Will definitely visit again!

As always, the facial was a far more luxurious treatment than expected. Applied with beautiful hand strokes and gorgeous products. Always a joy to visit this lovely place with it's friendly, expert staff. I'll be back!

We have stayed in both Bramble cottage and The Farmhouse. Both are beautifully decorated with fully equipped kitchens. The beds are comfy and the quilt’s luxurious. Lovely grounds with places to chill out. Spa is looking its age. Plenty to do in the surrounding areas. We enjoyed The National Mining museum and Cannon Hall. Penistone has a lovely viaduct and a variety of shops. Mary and Jim very welcoming.

A lovely enjoyable time as usual. The treatment was super - a full body scrub - and then the use of the steam rooms, tropical shower, hot tub and loungers with a glass of Prosecco. What a great way to spend a morning with my family!

We had an incredible stay this past weekend which had been very delayed by covid. It was for my sister in laws hen do with 11 of her friends and family. Mary and Jim have responded to any query I’ve had and dealt with emails swiftly and without complaint. We were concerned the weather may detail things at one point as we had the heaviest snow fall we’d seen in some time but this only serves to compliment the picturesque landscape and views even more after we got there safely. We did have a hiccup with our Asda delivery man not being able to get up to the accommodation due to the weather but this couldn’t be helped . The only teeny complaint is the dvd player in the farmhouse didn’t work so we had to cast our phones for a movie morning but they was no bother. The space was beyond ample meaning we could celebrate as a collective and also spread out when we wanted some time out . The facilities , spa and grounds were all beyond expectation and the bride to be was blown away with how grand the site was. This is the first place in a long time I can guarantee I’ll revisit with my own family next time so they can enjoy what Smallshaw has to offer . I only wish I could have stayed longer . The bbq pit is quite literally like Hagrid’s Hut and perfectly served us for a bbq party on the sat eve and with the snow outing outside made the atmosphere magical . Do not hesitate to book this place , you won’t regret it !!

Thank you so much for leaving a review of your weekend. It was such a pleasure to welcome you all here and we are so glad the snow only served to be picturesque and didn't spoil any plans for the weekend. Thank you for pointing out the DVD player, we would have loved to have resolved this for you at the time had we known, but we have since fixed it so thank you for making us aware of it. We hope to welcome you here again soon whether it be with family or friends, hopefully with not so much of the white stuff next time. With our best wishes, Mary and Jim

This was our third visit (would have been fourth but covid cancelled our plans). We love it so much it has become an annual tradition for my friends and I. Birch cottage is perfect, comfortable and clean. Beautiful quiet surroundings. The spa is really lovely, I had a massage this time around which was amazing. Can’t wait to visit again next year :)
