About the property

This two-storey under-dwelling is part of a traditional weaver's cottage set in a scenic, elevated location near the village of Golcar in West Yorkshire.

Use Bobbin Cottage as your homely base for exploring this wonderful area of Yorkshire.

Be welcomed into the property by its enticing living room, boasting a charming gas fire in its stunning stone fireplace, along with its TV and breakfast table, where everybody can enjoy their meals together with the exposed wooden beams creating a charming ambience.

The kitchen is amply equipped with stylish wooden furnishings and a lovely breakfast table to enjoy your morning coffee at.

Also on the ground floor lies a sumptuous half-tiled bathroom, showcasing a Jacuzzi bath and a double walk-in shower to make the most of.

The lovely open tread staircase takes you up to the first floor; here you will find the two delightfully decorated bedrooms which complete the interior of the property.

Make sure you spend some time on your wonderful south-facing seating area; here you can admire the stunning views across the Colne Valley and the village of Golcar in the distance whilst enjoying a refreshing drink.

Golcar provides a small range of amenities as well as the Colne Valley Museum which is certainly worth a look.

From here you can visit wonderful places such as the charming village of Slaithwaite and the market town of Huddersfield with its large number of shops, restaurants and bars to enjoy.

For a dose of the outdoors, head to the Peak District National Park just a short drive away.

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.
