The property

Located on the outskirts of Golcar in West Yorkshire is Boundary Cottage a delightful, two-bedroom cottage.

Enjoying a rural position, yet close enough to a range of amenities and attractions, Boundary Cottage makes the ideal base for a family break, inviting four guests looking to explore Huddersfield, the Peak District National Park, and the heart of England.

Benefit from off-road parking to the front, before making your way into the home, firstly reaching the inviting sitting room, complete with plush seating, a rustling woodburning stove, and a TV.

Continue through to the kitchen/diner, well-equipped to ease your self-catered stay, where you can prepare meals and dine, or if you'd prefer an alfresco affair, set the table, and light the barbecue upon the rear decking, with views over the local cricket pitch.

Catch some rest in one of the bedrooms with either a king-size bedroom or use of the double sofa bed , adorning exposed stone walls and ample storage, before awakening to a refreshing shower in the sleek wet room.

Box off any work in the first-floor study, before grabbing a bite to eat at The Weavers Shed, The Golcar Lily Pub and Restaurant, or the Walkers Arms, whilst the essentials can be purchased from a nearby convenience store.

Within proximity to the cottage, reach Colne Valley Museum to brush up on your local knowledge, or enjoy a stroll through Greenhead Park, whilst travelling towards Huddersfield will bring you to further attractions and amenities, including the Tolson Memorial Museum, Ravensknowle Park, and St George's Square.

Cromwell Bottom Nature Reserve is also a recommended area to visit, especially for outdoor enthusiasts, or continue towards Halifax to visit the Calderdale Industrial Museum, or Eureka!

The National Children's Museum, whilst the Yorkshire Dales National Park can be reached by car.

About the location


  • Slaithwaite 1.2 miles
  • Huddersfield 2.5 miles
  • Holmfirth 7.5 miles

Golcar (pronounced 'Goh-ker' locally) is a village nestled on a hillside crest above the Colne Valley, 2.5 miles from Huddersfield, alongside the River Colne and the Huddersfield Narrow Canal. Golcar played an important part in the Industrial Revolution as a weaving centre, and with its rich textile heritage, it now provides a delightful holiday base, made up of charming cobbled streets and local shops including an award-winning farm shop and restaurant, Golcar Brewery, a butcher, bakery, delicatessen and a range of inns and eateries. Enjoy stunning walks through dramatic moorland countryside, along river or canalside to the quaint villages of Slaithwaite and Marsden on the one side of Golcar, or right into the heart of the large market town of Huddersfield, with its excellent leisure facilities and its fine Victorian architecture, in the other direction. Spend sunny afternoons in the nearby historic villages of Slaithwaite and Marsden - with their collections of unique shops and independent pubs serving locally-sourced artisan delights. Titanic Spar is also a 10 minute walk away at the bottom of the valley, offering a range of swim, sauna and bespoke spa treatments all year round. The village of Holmfirth, made famous by BBC TV's Last Of The Summer Wine series is also well worth a visit, less than eight miles away. Just nine miles away is the popular town of Halifax and its stunning architecture where you can visit the newly renovated 'Piece Hall.' Golcar is also perfectly placed for those who are interested in art and literature; the Bronte's Haworth and Ted Hughes/ Sylvia Plath's Hebden Bridge being located just a short journey away. And if you want to brave 'red rose' territory (Lancashire) and learn about the life and work of the navvies (as features in BBC's 'Jericho, filmed just a couple of miles away) you will want to visit both the Saddleworth Moors and Britain's longest canal tunnel – 'Tunnel End Visitor Centre'; only five miles away. Situated on the edge of the Peak District National Park; offering a wealth of wonderful outdoor activities amongst stunning scenery steeped in history and with numerous local festivals (Golcar Lily Day, Marsden Jazz Festival, the Cuckoo and Moonraking Festivals), Golcar provides an excellent base for your West Yorkshire getaway.
