  1. Fantastic location, superb accommodation and absolutely everything we needed for an extended weekend break. The cottage is ideally suited for walking, we did the Denby Dale circular route (you can walk this from the cottage) visiting many of the local attractions. We had a family gathering at Elsecar Heritage Centre which is well worth a visit (free entry). On top of all this is the icing on the cake – all the provisions that Catherine so thoughtfully provided, truly amazing. We hope to return in the future and will definitely be recommending to our friends.

  2. Could not have asked for better accommodation!!! What an excellent little find! Such a beautifully laid out cottage, so cosy and spacious with everything you could ever want or need. Such wonderful home from home. We felt very welcomed by both Catherine and Charles and was in shock with the welcome hamper, such a delightful touch. The Yummy Yorkshire ice-cream parlour was fantastic, as was The George pub with tasty pies and pizzas. Our girls really appreciated all the indoor, outdoor and bath toys. We got lucky with all the weather and had a lovely walk doing the Denby and Cumberworth circular. The only downside was that we only stayed two nights when we all wanted longer. Thank you so much excellent value for money. Can’t wait to come back.
