  • "Great house in a beautiful setting, the house is huge with a separate games ..."

    Great house in a beautiful setting, the house is huge with a separate games room, there was plenty of room for us all to have our own space, the owner was very helpful A few niggly bit though, the cooker needs replacing ( the owner did tell us it was being done this year) some of the the other appliances also need replacing, lots of the light bulbs needed replacing especially in the lounge, also the hot tub didn't seem to get past 35° which wasn't warm enough when the outside temperature was so cold, unfortunately we only used it once Saying all of that we had a lovely week

    Thanks for your feedback. yes the kitchen is being updated in April. I'll check the other issues.. Thanks again x Property Owner

  • "Had a wonderful stay the house is amazing."

    My guest loved it however due to the location it did cause some issues. The path to the house is not great if you are not a confident driver added with a cover of snow menqt some of my guest didn't arrive. We parked cars at the entrance and had to walk to the house which is a good 15 mins with no lighting at all and local taxis would not drive down meaning our planned night out couldn't happen. This didnt ruin our weekend as we loved been in the house however I can imagine would cause problems for anyone with mobility issues.

  • "We had a great family stay at Belvedere Farm, Denise was a brilliant host and nothing was too much trouble."

    We have been having large family holidays for a number of years now and the places we have stayed have varied a lot. What we particularly liked about Belvedere Farm was it was homely and comfortable without being perfect. We felt we could relax with both the children and the dogs which is not the case in some of the ‘pristine and clinical’ places we’ve stayed. Some of the appliances like the cooker and washing machine are likely to need updating at some point, but we coped and I managed a full roast dinner on the Sunday without being totally sure what temperature I had the oven set at! Thanks Denise for a great week.

  • "Great outdoor space gor kids to play and families to be together."

    The games room is also a great place for everyone to have fun but it needs a new pool table . The kitchen in the main house is tired and needs more cooking facilities. The dining room was a tight squeeze for our family of 12. The upstairs was great again for the family to sit together and have some fun and the bedrooms were nice and comfy. We had a very enjoyable long weekend making lots of lovely memories

  • "We had a wonderful 5 days at Belvedere Farm."

    It is a hidden gem, nestled in a beautiful valley, easy to get to but away from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding towns. The house is very well set up for large groups, with fabulous indoor and outdoor spaces including a bar and hot tub!! Lovely linens and towels, comfortable beds and great bathrooms with super showers. Denise (the owner) was extremely helpful, answering any of our queries quickly and encouraging us to use the facilities to the full. The house is within walking distance of Shibden Hall and Park, close to Halifax and Piece Hall, Haworth and Ogden Water. It is a fabulous place to stay!!

    Great place for large families to come together and make memories. Everyone loved the games room and improved their pool skills. The house was perfect for hide and seek (even the grandmas joined in). We will miss our woodland walks and adventures. A wonderful home, in a beautiful spot. Thank you for making us feel so welcome and making our holiday extra special.

  • "We stayed at Belvedere Farm as a party of 12 for my birthday."

    We all loved the house and there was plenty of room for us all inside and out! The hot tub was popular but the biggest hit was the games room, we named it the Open Arms Pub, as that's where we ended up every night, facilities were great, pool table, darts, games, projector that we played music videos on, fridges for drinks and toilet facilities. We had so much fun! Beautiful place to relax and lots of wildlife and walks to enjoy. Denise, the owner met us on arrival, and kept in touch throughout the week to make sure we were ok. We would definitely recommend and we will definitely return in the future.

  • "Lovely well equipped property with very helpful friendly owner."

    Some maintenance to some appliances and doors required and the kitchen and dining room were too small for 12 guests - although this is being addressed I understand. The hot tub was clean and well maintained, There is an unfenced deep drop in the garden which is dangerous for children - it would be better covered over for safety. The games room was great and the house was set in spacious and peaceful grounds. Overall, a really great holiday.

  • "Excellent spacious home."

    Wonderful owner Denise extremely helpful when hot tub required maintenance. Games room a real bonus. Kitchen and dining room on the small side for such a big property however I believe the owners are addressing this next year. Slouchy sofas ok for lounging on but not overly comfortable for sitting upright. BBQ a great asset, fabulous surroundings, wildlife and foliage great to watch. Plenty of outdoor furniture enabling Al fresco dining ( weather permitting). As it was Coronation weekend I asked permission to decorate the games room with bunting and flags which Denise was perfectly agreeable to. The peace and tranquillity was amazing. Thank you Denise for sharing your wonderful property. Suzanne and Gary.

    The house is beautiful, and every single bedroom was spacious but cosy. We all loved the walks around the house as well as the garden and hot tub. The living room with the fire was so cosy, and having a few living spaces meant we had enough room for everyone to relax in peace. I can't recommend staying here enough - we will be back to stay!

    The house is gorgeous and looks like the photos. The host was unable to meet us but arranged someone to greet us, left a little care package and text to check everything was okay throughout the stay. The facilities are great! The only tiny downside is some general wear and tear, some of the bedroom doors didn’t shut (had to be propped closed) and the gym is now a bar/ games room. (Not a downside now, just a shock as two PT’s in the family who were expecting a gym!) Overall a gorgeous place and a fantastic host/ owner. Would 100% recommend!! Already looking at booking again next year.

    The terrace catches the sun on an afternoon and evening which is lovely. We loved the jacuzzi and enjoyed the walks around the property. There’s lots of room for dogs to roam and explore in a safe and secure garden which was great. The set up of the farm takes a bit of getting used to as the kitchen is on the bottom floor whereas the main living areas are upstairs but you soon get used to going up and down the stairs. The property has a games room which has a bar and pool table as well as a darts board in it. There’s a box of toys which was great for our kids too.

    The private setting, house and facilities made it the perfect place to stay for our 3 generational family holiday. The oldies were happy to stay in behind enjoying their separate on suite and bedroom warm sunroom with very comfortable sofas and a view over the pond and wildlife (including 2 deer). For the younger and more active, there are may places to walk and explore close to the house (including an old Victorian tunnel), and yet it is very close to many museums (Eureka) and parks. With a choice of 3 sitting areas and lots of TV's we could decide when to be together or apart. The games room (with underfloor heating) was a great place to have our (privately booked) Yoga lessons and for the children to play in when the weather was wet. The hot tub and trampoline were well used. The owner was extremely helpful. We are looking forward to coming back.

The property

Tucked away amongst 10 glorious acres of woodland on the outskirts of Hipperholme, West Yorkshire, rests this striking Victorian holiday home, Belvedere Farm.

Set across four levels and comfortably sleeping up to 12 guests, Belvedere Farm is the perfect base for a group of friends or family looking for a countryside retreat.

Journey through the woodland along the track road and park up at the foot of this magnificent dwelling, marvelling at the eye-catching Victorian architecture and the peaceful setting of the surrounding greenery before making your way inside to begin your staycation.

Stepping inside, discover a handy utility room alongside a shower room, where you can freshen up your wardrobe and enjoy a quick rinse following a day of adventure.

When stomachs start to rumble, make your way through to the well-equipped kitchen, where the designated chef can make use of the fantastic facilities to prepare heart-warming dishes before loading the dishwasher to keep the space neat and tidy.

Uncork a chilled bottle of wine from the cooler and gather together with your guests in the nearby dining room to indulge, backed by the sound of your favourite show playing on the Smart TV, or make mealtimes an alfresco affair with a sociable seat on the patio, backed by the peaceful scenery of the still waters of the pond.

Settle down for the evening with a sumptuous spot in front of the Smart TV in the sitting room, uniquely positioned on the first floor and thoughtfully laid out with a traditional décor of exposed wooden beams and a rustic woodburning stove.

Escape the excitement and enjoy an intimate escape in the snug, where you can delve into the pages of a captivating book at the glow of the electric fire gently warms the room.

End each day in style with an indulgent soak in the bubbling hot tub for an evening under the stars or retreat indoors to the orangery where you can finish up evening drinks whilst still enjoying the unspoilt countryside views.

When sleep calls, you're spoilt for choice between six well-presented bedrooms, the first of which is accessed via a set of stairs leading from the orangery, where you'll find a sumptuous king-size with the benefit of its own en-suite bathroom, perfect for beating the morning queues!

Two king-size rooms and a double and are all positioned on the second floor, with a further king-size and double set in an elevated position on the third floor, with the latter fit with their own Smart TV so you can catch up on your favourite show from the comfort of the covers.

Along with the ground floor shower room, servicing this fabulous property is a second-floor bathroom, fit with an elegant roll-top bath and walk-in shower, along with a third-floor shower room, giving guests the choice between a luxurious soak amongst the bubbles or a quick morning rinse.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and take a leisurely stroll through the extensive grounds that envelope your new home-from-home where you can watch the ducks as the play on the peaceful waters of the pond.

The property also has a pool table, dartboard, bar and sofas in a detached building in the grounds.

Take a break from doing the cooking and venture into the heart of Hipperholme where you'll find a fantastic selection of delicious eateries on offer, ranging from elegant restaurants, traditional pubs and convenient takeaways, promising to serve something to suit all tastes and budgets, or if you'd prefer, head to the local shop to pick-up some tasty treats to enjoy from the comfort of your holiday home.

Keep entertained with a visit to Shibden Park, where you can tour the medieval grounds of Shibden Hall, a Grade II* listed historic house, indulge in a coffee and a slice of cake with a view of the boating lake at Coffee Culture In The Park, or journey through the greenery aboard the Miniature Railway.

Be sure to pack your clubs, as the avid golfer may want to spend an afternoon at Lightcliffe Golf Club or the nearby Crow Nest Park Golf Club.

Jump in the car and visit the bustling town of Halifax, where you can treat yourself to a spot of retail therapy or a well-deserved tipple at The Piece Hall Halifax, catch a live performance at the Victoria Theatre Halifax, or keep the little ones busy with a fascinating exploration of the interactive exhibits on display at Eureka!

The National Children's Museum.

For your next group celebration in Yorkshire, be sure to choose Belvedere Farm as a base that you'll be delighted to return to.
