  • "Lovely cottage, very tastefully decorated and very good quality equipment throughout."

    Beds were all very comfortable, and though we did have a slight problem this was swiftly rectified. I would highly recommend Woodlea Cottage and would be delighted to stay there again.

  • "A lovely, comfortable property."

    We were a family group of 7 adults and had plenty of space - a large bright kitchen/dining area for eating and a cozy lounge for relaxing in the evening. Wish we could have stayed longer!

The property

Settled in a beautiful location in the hills of West Yorkshire Woodlea Cottage provides a truly serene setting for those looking for an idyllic getaway filled with exploration.

This quintessential Grade II listed cottage thoughtfully blends contemporary with character creating a dreamy home-from-home.

It lies in a fantastic location beneath Victoria Tower on Castle Hill which dates back to the Iron Age.

The historic cottage is tucked away near the village of Almonbury, which is referenced in The Doomsday Book, and is south facing, adorned with beautiful wisteria and encompassed by the picturesque countryside.

It overlooks the valley and its beautiful woods.

The cottage retains its charm and pays homage to its rich history with a wealth of original features including mullion windows, exposed beamed ceilings, woodburning stove and open fireplace yet offers contemporary conveniences.

It also benefits from a patio garden to the front and a courtyard to the rear which are both ideally placed for alfresco dining.

Find three off-road parking spaces before being welcome into the entrance hall sitting room home to two plush armchairs, a crackling woodburing stove and an extending dining table offer opportunities to savour dinner in front of the stove’s gentle warmth.

Make your way through the cottage to find the fully-equipped kitchen where you can whip up tasty meals ahead of raising a celebratory toast in the courtyard.

Later, head into the second sitting room and relax into the sumptuous sofa in front of the TV as the open fire glistens nearby; the musical among you may even want to treat your loved ones to a tune on the piano!

The ground floor is completed by a handy utility and cloakroom.

Follow the stairs up to the first floor, where you will find a beautiful bathroom and a sleek shower room, perfect for washing away the day’s adventures, along with four well-appointed bedrooms; three doubles, one with en-suite bathroom, and a twin, all of which enjoy breath-taking countryside views.

If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic setting, head out to explore the many beautiful villages in the area, namely Holmfirth, Honley, Slaithwaite, Marsden, Hebden Bridge and Haworth home of the Brontes, all of which are bursting at the seams with character and are designed to be explored.

Immerse yourself in the area’s culture and heritage at The Yorkshire Sculpture Park, The Hepworth Art Gallery and The Salt Mills which are all just a short scenic drive from Woodlea.

The cottage is a haven for keen ramblers thanks to its picturesque setting between four national parks, The Peak District, The Yorkshire Dales, The Lake District and The North York Moors which all house a plethora of walks, trails and hiking opportunities providing guests with endless opportunities for breath-taking views and picturesque panoramas.

There are also a myriad of walks and trails through the uninterrupted countryside from the cottage’s front door!

All this and more awaits at Woodlea Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.

About the location


Huddersfield 3 miles; Holmfirth 6 miles.

The traditional West Riding village of Almondbury is situated just 3 miles to the south east of Huddersfield in the south Pennines. The village is steeped in history and still retains several notable buildings including the 16th century Wormald's Hall, now the village Conservative club, and All Hallows Church; Almondbury even appeared in the Domesday Book. Nearby Holmfirth will be remembered by most as being the home of Compo, Cleggy and Nora Batty, from the long running comedy series 'Last of the Summer Wine', whilst the nearby Colne Valley is home to fictional 'Skelthwaite' from the successful TV series 'Where The Heart Is'. Within easy reach of the northern Peak District, and the southern Dales, Almondbury is well situated to offer beautiful countryside and great walking opportunities, or alternatively, an hour's drive could take you to the historic city of York, elegant Harrogate, or vibrant Leeds. This traditional village is well situated for a variety of activities, suitable for all tastes.
