Chris and Valda were wonderful hosts, very helpful in suggesting places to visit and their recommendation for dinner was spot on.

We stayed in the en-suite room which was immaculate, with tastefully and unfussy decoration with lots of little extras, such as fresh fruit, touch lighting and crisp bedlinen.

Breakfast was a real feast, nothing was too much trouble and we would be happy to recommend The Old Coop to any of our friends who are looking for a luxury weekend away.

Room Tip: The en-suite room has lovely views from the back of the house.

We stayed at the Old Co-op when visiting Huddersfield for a local wedding. The hospitality, rooms and in particular the choice at breakfast were all first class.

The Old Co-op is centrally situated in the picturesque village of Thurstonland, nestling in the glorious Pennine Hills above the famous old town of Holmfirth. This is 'last of the summer wine' country at its most splendid. The Old Co-op has been tastefully renovated by owners Chris and Valda Dawson in the traditional style of a West Riding famhouse. The two guest rooms are beautifully appointed and enjoy opens vistas over fields and hills. Breakfast is a sumptuous affair and, whilst dinner is not generally available, agreeable Inns with decent cuisine can be found close by. The owners work very hard at making your stay in their home a pleasure.

.We travelled to Huddersfield for a wedding and stayed for two days at The Old Co-op. All I can say is "what a find” Valda and Chris were the perfect hosts. The rooms are comfortable and beautifully decorated. The attention to detail in the rooms is what really makes a difference. From Tea trays with biscuits to fruit and chocolates. Bath robes, hairdryers and toiletries all provided.
The most outstanding breakfasts with everything from fresh fruit and cereals, home made croissants and preserves to full English or smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.
We really had a lovely stay and are planning to book again soon.

I cannot recommend Chris and Valda's B&B highly enough. The place itself is stunning, set in rolling hills, with the noise of sheep baa-ing and birds chirruping to wake you in the morning. The Old Co-op is beautifully decorated, the perfect balance between modern and traditional to feel stylish and elegant.

You are offered a choice of breakfast, which is cooked freshly to order in the morning and served with lashings of lovely homemade bread, tea and coffee. Ask for the mini pancakes, they're delicious :)

Chris and Valda were extremely helpful, and even went as far as finding and booking somewhere local for us to go for a nice dinner at the weekend, and giving us a lift there so we could drink with our dinner.

In summary - excellent value for money, a delight to discover somewhere so pretty, and to feel like you are important, rather than another body through the door.

En route to the Lake District we decided to visit 'Last of Summer Wine Country' - we chose The Old Co-Op for its 5 star Silver award and this lovely B&B certainly didn't disappoint. Chris and Valda made us feel so welcome after a long journey and nothing was too much trouble - they even provided Gluten Free biscuits for me on the Tea Tray - lovely! The attention to detail was evident everywhere - luxurious bedding on a superbly comfortable bed, flat screen TV, books and magazines, fresh fruit - all beautifully clean and so pretty! The fabulous large bathroom had without doubt the best shower we've ever had anywhere - and we loved the 'mod cons' - touch sensitive lighting and dimmer switches etc. The other pretty guest room didn't have an en suite but it did have an adjacent Private Bathroom with a fabulous free standing Roll Top Bath - wonderful!
Formerly the old village Co-Operative Store - the building had been beautifully converted by Chris and Valda in a modern and contemporary style without losing the warmth and character of an old cottage - my daughter would love it - my Mum would love it and we certainly loved it. After a superb and plentiful breakfast, a friendly chat and a wander around the lovely garden we set of for the Lakes - we shall definitely be staying with Chris and Valda again and can't recommend them or their lovely B&B enough.
