  • "Lovely little cottage."

    The access to the cottage is along a lane that the neterance to is right on the corner of the street and is a tight turn into the laneso can be a bit daunting. There is nowhere to put clothes so living out the suitcase but that's OK. The only downside is the shower is tiny and difficult to get into if you are a bit large.

  • "The button box was very comfortable and had everything we needed except for a mirror which was awkward cos u could not check yourself before going out."

    The owners left us everything we needed to start us off milk,bread,butter,jam,tea,coffee and sugar which I thought was very thoughtfull,we enjoyed our week and the only reason we would not return was the area was too hilly for me as i am partially disabled.the ramp up to the property was very useful.

The property

The Button Box has been splendidly converted from the owner's garage and is set in the suburban village of Golcar, near Huddersfield.

With a refreshing and uplifting interior, it serves as an ideal location for your romantic getaway for two.

Step towards this welcoming apartment and be greeted by its well-presented and homely open-plan living room, enhanced by stunning exposed beams and graced with a snug two-seater sofa so you can curl up with your loved one and watch a favourite film at the end of the day.

To the other side of the room lies a charming dining table and a conveniently compact kitchen.

Just off of the living area is the delightful double bedroom benefiting from quirky hanging fixtures for your clothes and a modern en-suite bathroom which can be accessed from both rooms.

Make the most of the south-facing garden here at The Button Box, comprising of a lawn and a patio area, it is a real sun trap in the summer.

A short walk takes you into the centre of Golcar offering friendly pubs, all serving a range of food.

A leisurely stroll along the canal to the west will take you to the delightful village of Slaithwaite, full of artisan and locally sourced food, independent shops and an award winning homemade bakery with cafe.

Slightly further is the well-stocked market town of Huddersfield which offers itself as an ideal base for your break, proudly boasting some fine architecture, amenities and attractions to keep you occupied.

There is something to cater for every taste nearby; from the awe-inspiring Peak District National Park to the shopping haven of Manchester.

An inviting, tasteful apartment with fantastic access to the region's true gems.

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.
