    “The owner Paul exceeded expectations.”


    1. He really was easily contactable, and responsive. 2. The oven broke, and he replaced it - on New Year's Eve! 3. He also freed up the kitchen venetian blinds which a previous occupant had jammed up. As with many holiday cottages, the kitchen equipment was just enough, but with a few annoying omissions. I put this down to Sykes' recommended inventory of required items being limited to absolute essentials. I would have appreciated the following: potato peeling knife (it's no fun peeling potatoes with a normal paring knife when your fingers are a bit arthritic - however this is unlikely to be an issue that a younger person would even be aware of); also, a few extra Pyrex items for safe microwaving; and I brought 2 DVDs but there was no player. Otherwise the key equipment was of a very high standard e.g. CH boiler and hob were very modern. TV and wi-fi reception was above average for holiday accommodation (although admittedly my bench mark is Cornwall). I find this more helpful than the usual tick box response. It is mainly intended to assist the owner, so only publish the scores. Overall, we were very comfortable in Butts Cottage. Michael Hoole

About the location


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.
