Due to a cancellation, New Year is now available. During the pandemic, where there is a late change to self-catering opening dates, the deadline for cancellation will be 4pm the day before arrival. Up to this point there are 2 options. The first is to refund the rent receivable as owner - note this will not include the booking fee charged by Tripadvisor - which is paid the day after your planned arrival. The second option is to postpone your arrival to a date to be agreed. This protects the 100% amount that you have paid. Minimum stay is 3 nights. Get in touch for special deals. Before guests’ arrival and after departure, there will be a short ‘pause’, to allow space between bookings. Note: steep staircase- double handrails for safety.

Before guests’ arrival and after departure, there will be a short ‘pause’, to allow space between bookings. Note: steep staircase- double handrails for safety. Situated at about 1200 feet above sea level, this cosy moorland cottage is on the northern edge of the Peak District National Park. There are distant views - great for weather watching! Drifting mists, clouds and starry nights. Visitors use words like well-equipped, peaceful, and comfortable when describing their stay. There is a log burner for those chilly autumn and winter nights, although full central heating is included in the weekly rental cost. On arrival you will find cosy towelling dressing gowns, tea, coffee, eggs and a pint of farm milk. There is overnight use of a tumble dryer (if a light shower should catch you out!). An initial supply of logs, kindling and coal for the woodburner is provided. If you wish, you can pre-order farm milk, free range eggs and locally sourced bread or rolls. The cottage has wi-fi broadband. There is off-road parking for 2 cars and secure storage for bikes/motorcycle. The Transpennine Trail runs through Dunford Bridge which is 1.5 miles away. 'Last of the Summer Wine' Holmfirth is 5 miles away. The market town of Penistone is 5 miles away with good shopping facilities.. Carlecotes is equidistant from Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield all of which can be reached by train with free parking at or near the relevant stations.More
