  • "The accommodation wasn’t clean on arrival, the kitchen worktops were extremely dirty and we had to deep clean it before unpacking our belongings."

    The house itself was full of cobwebs and dust and is in need of a good deep clean. Such a shame as the property is beautiful. The rubbish bins were overflowing from the previous guests, and excess bin bags were stacking near the children’s playground. We were contacted by the owner and Sykes early in our stay as the key provided to us unlocked an annex with an extra bedroom, utility room and games room, which we began using. We were asked to vacate the annex by the owner and Sykes, who had apparently tried and been unable to contact me on my telephone no. (Which was correct on my account details), Sykes advised this was due to maintenance and the owner advised that the annex was rented out on a different rental contract. Immediately this raised concerns as the annex shared the same key as the cottage and was not secure or private. I responded to the owner to highlight my concerns about security, the cleanliness, and the issues around waste disposal and he failed to address or take action on the issues, Sykes disappointingly failed to respond. I would hope that Sykes will contact me to address this matter following my feedback.

  • "We had a great family holiday at the house."

    It is well located to visit York, Leeds and Sheffield. The cinema room and pool table were a great bonus. Everyone commented on how comfortable were the beds. I would recommend this house.

  • "The house is absolutely beautiful and in a lovely setting."

    Lots of space for the adults and children and a great layout. Everything that we needed was in the house and the owners responded to queries really quickly. Plenty to do in the area if you are happy to drive. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend.

  • "When we arrived the hot tub was very dirty."

    The water was green and there was dirt around the sides. We contacted the caretaker and he came straight away and cleaned it and refilled it. However, this meant that we could not use it on the first night. There were other issues of cleanliness inside the house also. There was a bar of soap left in a shower, the sinks in the kitchen were dirty, the fridge was dirty and more. When I cleaned the sink I actually cut my finger on a piece of glass which was left in the sink. There was no QR code to scan for NHS COVID track and trace. Despite this, we had a lovely time in the house, once the cleaning issues were sorted.

  • "Very lovely cottage met our expectations, very big kids loved it."

    Having a BBQ and jacuzzi was a bonus to our stay. but there was to much cobwebs especially around where the plates were hold I think the cottage needs a deep clean but overall I would differently recommend it. the owners were great and very helpful. thank you Steph.

  • "Wonderful property, spacious and plenty of room for kids to roam both inside and out in a self contained, gated space."

    Huge garden, awesome hot tub, bbq, and bright, spacious modern property. We used this property as a base to travel to various activities in the area. It served us well for this as we have small children and anticpated driving everywhere but maybe isnt as good for families who want to be based in the middle of a village close to a pub, or whatever, as it is situated about a mile away from the nearest amenities. Property managers here were helpful and happy to resolve any issues. Great cottage.

The property

Hooton Pagnell 1.2 miles.

Hidden away in the rural location of Moorhouse Lane near to the historical village of Hooton Pagnell is this characterful and charming dwelling, Common End Farmhouse.

This spacious holiday accommodation is ideal for hosting group celebrations or bringing loved ones together to explore this wonderful area known as ‘God’s Country’, with the city of Leeds, the glorious views in North Yorkshire, Peak District National Park and the beautiful coastline including Whitby and Scarborough situated a scenic journey away.

Open up the electric gates and enter onto the driveway to be presented with a charming farmhouse with stunning gardens and features to delight groups of all ages and tastes.

Enter the farmhouse and be welcomed into the agrarian-style kitchen, where a traditional AGA takes centre stage before all of the other quality appliances required to rustle up delicious home-cooked meals and the sleek breakfast bar makes a great social space for enjoying a glass of wine as dinner simmers on the hob.

Delight in your home-cooked dish within the formal dining room for some much-needed catch-up time with your loved ones, before you pop open a bottle of something to toast to a superb holiday.

Afterwards, look forward to relaxing into your evening within the sitting room, where exposed beams frame the plush seating arrangement and the Smart TV, which provides the evening’s entertainment.

The seamless blend of character and elegance is continued into the sleeping quarters of the main house, where you will find four bedrooms, comprising of a family bedroom with a double bed, a single bed and a pull-out trundle bed, a super-king-size bed and two king-size beds, served by a sleek family bathroom, with a roll-top bath.

Take time to explore the magnificent grounds of this property, complete with a large patio area with table and chairs for a spot of alfresco dining and an excellent play area for any younger guests of the group.

Be sure to savour a moment of relaxation by dipping into the bubbling hot tub one evening and gazing up at the stars before you retire to bed.

If you can tear yourself away from this outstanding holiday accommodation, venture to the nearby town of South Elmsall, where you will find local supermarkets and a train station which will take you to Leeds for cocktails or the North Yorkshire town of Skipton where you are only a short distance away from Bolton Abbey for amazing walks and a delightful cream tea.

To keep you busy whilst staying here, if you want a relaxing break from it all head to the Frickley Country Park, home to a plethora of walks upon open moorland or for a taste of history, or if you are wanting a little more than gentle exercise the Pennine Trail is only a short drive away.

Local attractions include Cusworth Hall, an 18th century Grade I listed House, with an amazing amount of history and a lovely café to sit in and admire the view, you can enjoy a guided tour of Brodsworth Hall and gardens or simply stop off in the beautiful village of Hooton Pagnell and experience a warm welcome at the local pub 1903, where you can have a delicious meal and enjoy the sunset over Emley Moor, or you could travel a little further afield to the cathedral city of Wakefield, and visit the cathedral itself or take a walk along the canal, or for a more adventurous day out, there is a larger selection of amenities and the Peak District National Park which is great for cycling and hiking.

Common End Farmhouse makes a wonderful getaway for an adventure with the whole family.
