The cottage

Tyas Cottage is located in an idyllic, historic, rural setting next to the millpond of the first water-powered mill in the Colne Valley.

Merrydale stream, with its ancient bridge and waterfal,l forms part of the boundary to the shared garden, as does the pack-horse route between Halifax and Manchester; this rough path with its massive stones leads up a steep hill through hanging woodland to the Rose and Crown Pub; Not only does our pub serve splended local artisan beers and excellent food, but it also accepts dogs. In addition to the award winning shared garden, the free-to-roam surrounding woodland and Merrydale Clough, guests have their own private terrace.

Furnished mainly with antiques and original oil paintings, Tyas Cottage is both stylish and very typical of Yorkshire; although it is a barn-cottage conversion it is light, airy, spacious and is Grade 2 listed.

This is a particularly eco-friendly cottage as it has an electric car charging point, solar and PV panels, under-floor heating on the ground floor and massive insulation. Tyas Cottage is ideal for bird watchers, nature lovers, gardening enthusiasts and hikers; in addition to several wonderful local walks, it is ideally located for walking the Pennine Way, or for the less ambitious walkers, Simon Armitage's Stanza Stones Walk; well away from roads, Tyas Cottage is a safe environment for your pets. With its excellent road and rail links, it is also within easy reach of a wide range of attractions; cities within an hour's travel include Leeds, Bradford, Manchester, Sheffield, and Halifax (perhaps slightly over an hour are Harrogate and York); if pampering is on the agenda and you can tear yourselves away from the garden with its swing, sculptural pods and vessels, Titanic Spa is very nearby.
