    Mrs Jeffs, Shifnal, August 2015

    • “We have a dog and it was great being accessible to dry underfoot dog walks. Anything we needed was within walking distance, including food shopping. The cottage was warm and inviting from the time we arrived to the time we left. The bed was comfortable and all linen was provided. Will be booking again.”

    Miss Summerfield, Dorchester, April 2015

    • “The standard of both the cottage and location were outstanding. We feel that we have barely 'scratched the surface' in a week, and hope to return in the future. Everything that you could possibly wish for was provided in the cottage. It was cosy, well appointed and spotlessly clean.”

    Mr Griffiths, Lincoln, April 2015

    • “The cottage had everything that we needed. The weather was freezing but the cottage was very warm & cosy. We would highly recommend.”

    Mrs Sanders, Chelmsford, December 2014

    • “Leapings Cottage is fantastically appointed with quality. Very clean and an overall homely feeling. Felt very at home. Great location, great walks and good for parking several cars.”

    Mr Cooper, Wakefield, November 2014

    • “The cottage was spacious & very clean and the beds were incredibly comfortable. The location was good as we had our pet dog with us so could join the Pennine trail immediately behind the cottage without having to get in the car. We enjoyed our weekend break at Leapings Cottage and would definitely return.”

    Mrs Cooper, Salisbury, November 2014

    • “Fantastic cottage, with everything needed for a comfortable and happy family holiday. All the little details made it perfect.”

    Mrs Arnold, Manningtree, October 2014

    • “The cottage was beautiful and perfectly clean when we arrived. We were pleasantly surprised since the pictures on the web site do not give over such a nice cottage. The surrounding areas and villages are really quiet and offer a relaxing holiday.”

    Mrs Perelman, London, August 2014

About the location


Penistone 1 mile; Holmfirth 8 miles.

Thurlstone is a lovely little rural village on the banks of the River Don, with stone-built cottages, dis-used mills and a scattering of small shops and pubs. Thurlstone is located close to the north-eastern edge of the beautiful Peak District National Park, providing easy access to the moorland, and there are many cycle paths, bridleways and footpaths to explore. Within easy reach from Thurlstone are Cawthorn Park, Langsett, Broomhead, Derwent Reservoir (of Dambusters fame) and Moorhall Dams, which are all worth a day of exploration. In addition, the Trans-Pennine Trail passes through the village. The wonderful village of Holmfirth, made famous by ‘Last of the Summer Wine’, is close by and the Peak District National Park offers walks, mountain biking, market towns and pretty villages. This area provides excellent opportunities for golfing, clay pigeon shooting, horse trekking and visits to the coal mine museum and various stately homes, such as Cannon Hall, Wentworth Castle and Chatsworth. Thurlstone also offers easy access to Sheffield (Meadowhall Shopping Centre is 20 minutes' away), Leeds, York, Manchester, Huddersfield and even the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
