  • "Olive Tree Cottage is a perfect base to explore this part of Yorkshire."

    Great communication from Lynda. Off road parking is a bonus, and key collection very easy. The cottage size is very deceptive from the outside. It’s like a tardis once you get inside. Warm and cozy. Bring some logs to set a real fire in the wood burner. A garden too which will be lovely on warmer days. A wonderful shop with a deli just around the corner so no need really, to bring any food or drink with you. Be confident with your booking for Olive Tree Cottage. You won’t be disappointed.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Olive Tree Cottage."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and equipped with everything you would need. The private parking was a great bonus on the small lane that the cottage is located on, a location which meant almost total silence at night despite being close to the centre of town. The host provided all the info we needed for the cottage as well as some local recommendations which were appreciated. Honley itself is a fantastic base to explore the surrounding area, whether on foot or via the impressive bus and train links. We brought our two whippets with us and the town is very dog friendly. All in all, couldn’t recommend Olive Tree Cottage highly enough and we would have no hesitation in staying again.

  • "This property offers everything you would require as a 'home from home'."

    The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could need however, there are also multiple choices of local venues for food (indian, pub classics, chinese, fish and chips....). A local shop (less than 5 minutes walk) stocks a range of essentials and has a deli/fresh stock.The decor is lovely and the property was spotless. Comfortable beds throughout and an added bonus of a large garden to relax in (weather permitting) The location is perfect for visiting a number of attractions- there is also a good bus service and a train station in the village if required. Great local walks allowing for early morning adventures with our dog. Would recommend this property.

    Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback, we are thrilled to hear you had a wonderful stay. As you mention, we do have a array of great restaurants close by and Taylors, the local shop is fabulous for all the essentials and more. I'm pleased to hear your dog enjoyed the exploring too, there are plenty of woods and fields with stunning views that can take you miles if you are up for a hike :-) Thank you again for booking Olive Tree Cottage, we hope we can welcome you again in the future.

    Spotlessly clean and quality from top to bottom - from great mattresses to bed linen and towels. We also loved the gorgeous artworks. We’ve stayed in a few cottages in the area over the years visiting family and this is by far the best. We will definitely use Olive Cottage again and would highly recommend.

You can walk up castle hill from the cottage which is a lovely walk for those hikers with pub stops along the way! Would definitely recommend to anyone!

    Tucked away, this hidden gem is home from home, well equipped and maintained to a good standard. We were welcomed with complimentary teas/coffees and biscuits, which was a nice touch. It was a good base for us, to be able to see family not far away, as well as visiting local attractions and great walks on the doorstep. A clean and tidy house with a kitchen courtyard and 2 lawned gardens, perfect for everyone.

  • "The cottage looks small from the outside but when you get in, it's a real gem."

    It was very clean, comfortable and cosy. All you need is there. Top marks to Linda & Jason. The bedrooms were all excellent - if I was going to be picky, the only thing was the front smallest bedroom didn't have a reading light. We found the cottage very difficult to find though. For future reference, once you get to the excellent Taylors Food shop, with the shop on your left hand side, the cottage is about 50 yards further on, down the lane marked "Private Road". I would highly recommend a Sunday lunch at the excellent Jacob's Well pub. A real traditional nosh up.

    Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback, it means a lot to us and we are thrilled you loved the cottage. Following your feedback we are pleased to say, we have added a reading light to the smaller front bedroom :-) Both Jason and I try to always be available for our guests especially on check in day in case there are any questions or directions needed. The Jacob's Well is certainly one of our favourites too for food, especially Sunday lunch :-) We hope to welcome you again in the future. Property Owner

  • "We could not fault our stay at Olive Tree Cottage."

    The location was ideal - a short walk from Honley and within easy reach by train or bus to Holmfirth. If visiting the Peak District, this would be the perfect base. The beds were extremely comfy and the cottage was very warm and cosy. The welcome pack of biscuits and tea, as well as the generous log burner starter kit, was the cherry on top. We would definitely recommend a stay at Linda's cottage!
