    Butts Cottage was the perfect holiday home, a quaint 200 year old property with furnishings and bed linens of a very high quality plus a well equipped kitchen. We arrived to find a much appreciated welcome pack, which included milk, bread, butter, biscuits, a basket of fruit and a bottle of wine - all much appreciated! The garden birds and squirrels were a constant source of entertainment and we met the owner who kindly left us a good supply of peanuts etc. to keep them coming. The cottage ...
    Butts Cottage was the perfect holiday home, a quaint 200 year old property with furnishings and bed linens of a very high quality plus a well equipped kitchen. We arrived to find a much appreciated welcome pack, which included milk, bread, butter, biscuits, a basket of fruit and a bottle of wine - all much appreciated! The garden birds and squirrels were a constant source of entertainment and we met the owner who kindly left us a good supply of peanuts etc. to keep them coming. The cottage itself is in a quiet village - nice to return to after busy days out - and there's lots to see and do in the surrounding area. We especially enjoyed visits to Holmfirth (Last of the Summer Wine), the National Mine Museum near Wakefield (ideal for a rainy day) and the very quirky Oil Can Café, all highly recommended. Initially I was concerned about the staircase being a bit steep for my 89 year old mother - but there are handrails on both sides of the stairs and a hand grip at the top, which meant she managed the stairs with ease. This is a delightful property and I would highly recommend it.

About the location

FARNLEY TYAS

Holmfirth 4 miles; Huddersfield 4 miles; Haworth 20 miles; Leeds 20 miles; York 40 miles.

Farnley Tyas is a delightful, quiet West Yorkshire village set in an unspoilt and largely undiscovered corner of the rural Southern Pennines. Now gaining popularity with walkers, cyclists and horse riders, it used to be said that time stood still in Farnley where farming was and still is the predominant occupation. High on a hill, some 900 feet above sea level and having some great views, the village is surrounded by beautiful rolling wooded countryside with many old footpaths and quiet lanes to explore among the belts of ancient woodland. The majority of the village is designated as a conservation area with a number of listed buildings. The surrounding countryside to the north and west is designated as 'An Area of High Landscape Value'. Nearby is the local landmark Castle Hill, with its hill top location and panoramic views a visit is recommended. On top are the remains of an iron age fort, the fortification banks and ditches are easily recognisable. The present 'castle' is the Victoria Tower built in 1899 to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria. The Tower is open on summer and bank holiday weekends (check website first) when for a modest fee you can climb the stone stairs to the viewing platform, where it is said, on a clear day York Minster is visible. Last of the Summer Wine was filmed in nearby Holmfirth. There is lots to see and do here, Sid's Cafe, Nora Batty's house, Summer Wine Tours, with some supermarkets, independent shops and eateries. The Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Hepworth Gallery, Cannon Hall Country Park, The National Coal Mining Museum and Wentworth Castle are only a short drive away. Huddersfield has a multi-screen cinema, a modern theatre, an art gallery with nationally known exhibits and all the usual supermarkets and chains with good parking accessed from the ring road. All this and more, yet the major tourist attractions of York, Haworth, Leeds, Sheffield and Manchester are with easy reach.
