About Faye Ackroyd

I live in England with my Husband, 2 children and my 2 dogs Rolo & Diesel, adorable King Charles Spaniels. I work from home which involves running the holiday home business,. We are both from the heart of Yorkshire so we are familiar with what the county has to offer in terms of hospitality and beautiful countryside.

Faye Ackroyd purchased this house in 2009

Why Faye Ackroyd chose Holmfirth

Holmfirth is a beautiful part of Yorkshire, a hidden gem, the area boasts some of the most lovely scenery in the country and the walks and cycle paths are perfect for our family to get out and about with our 2 dogs.

My husband is also a keen runner so he is blessed with some of the most challenging off road paths and tracks to run along. We came here to bring our family up in what is an idyllic area for children to live in, we bought Oaklands in 2000 and lived in it happily for over 10 years and then had Stonewell House built in the garden of Oaklands, which we now also rent out as a holiday let.

Holmfirth is very rural but also is a very vibrant, bustling market town also where you can get everything you need without having to go to a big city.

What makes this house unique

Stonewell is on the cusp of Holmfirth so it has the best of both worlds, close to the town centre ( 10 min walk) and also in a very private and quiet area with fantastic views of the Holme Valley.

It also has loads of communal space, ideal for parties and celebrations, or if families are staying with children, they can be entertained and play in there own areas leaving the adults to relax and enjoy a bit of well earned peace and quiet!

Guestbook comments from the owner

3 stories of heaven , it's everything it says . Just came back from 3 night stay with friends to celebrate my 50th birthday. It was stunning, the bedrooms were beautiful land great for large parties, to be honest we only spent a short time in the lounge as most of our time was spent in the kitchen/ dining room as it led out to the patio,garden and the fab hot tub. This downstairs area is set up well for groups to eat chat and use the hot tub.

We spent most of our weekend in either pjs or costumes. It was a really warm comfortable house and there was nothing missing we had 2 friends who worked in catering they thought that everything you needed was in the well equipped kitchen. The bathroom top floor was too die for

Luxury Hen Party House & Family Retreat Sleeps 20 with Hot Tub
average rating of 4.6875 based on 18 reviews

Amazing house! Perfect for our hen weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 20 celebrating a hen party. Every single person in our group loved the house. And I mean LOVED IT!!!!!!! It is very clean and has loads of space. The views from the top floor, looking out into the valley, are top notch and the top floor bathroom will blow your mind! Faye and Andrew (owners) were easy to communicate with.

There was plenty of space to store everything even with that many of us. The kitchen-dining area is fantastic and that's where we spent most of our time. There is a huge dining room table that made it easy to cater for everyone. The kitchen is incredibly well stocked.

The surrounding area is lovely. We went into Holmfirth for a pub lunch (10 min walk) and then went for a local 4 mile walk (instructions in the welcome book).

I would recommend this house for groups / families.

Just returned from a weekend stay here with a group of friends celebrating my 40th. We had an amazing time, the house is simply stunning in every way, beautifully decorated and furnished, spotlessly clean throughout and everything was just perfect.

The photographs dont really do this house justice as it is a lot bigger and spacious than i thought it would be. All of the rooms are huge and have a lovely open plan feel to it including the very big kitchen/ diner which has a large modern dining table that easily seated all 18 of us!

The ambient lighting everywhere gives it a lovely homely touch on an evening both inside and outside of the property.

The views looking over the hills and valleys are also fabulous and it was a real treat to wake up every morning and taking in these wonderful views there.

The hot tub was very popular as it is quite big and we managed to get 12 of us in there!

It is also worth mentioning that the quaint town of Holmfirth is only a 10 min walk away which is well worth a visit as there are lots of pretty shops and restaurants as well as bars and bistros there, we ate at a lovely Italian called Piccolinos which was great.

The owners were fabulous with us from start to finish and were always on hand before we arrived to answer our questions and i cant thank Celebration Cottages enough for all their help with my booking for what will be a lovely memory for myself and my friends forever more

Thank you both Andrew and Faye

I hope to return in the future to Stonewell House & Holmfirth

Fantastic House & Location

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful property Stonewell House is, everything about this house is quality throughout.

we were a group of ladies all celebrating my daughters hen party and we could not have picked a nicer place as a venue for this. We used Celebration Cottages who i believe own the property to organise everything for us - like the chefs 3 course meal which was to die for and the cocktail class which again was absolutely brilliant, everything was very easy to book and the owners were simply fantastic, bending over backwards to help us make the weekend flawless for my daughters special weekend

we all loved the large bedrooms and open plan kitchen diner where 18 of us could easily all eat together and spend time chilling out and dancing!

the hot tub was amazing too we managed to squeeze 12 of us in there!

The property was also spotlessly clean and i could tell that the owners are very proud of this property and rightly so.

i would definitely recommend Stonewell House and Celebration Cottages to anyone wanting to book a large property for a special celebration event like this

thank you for everything you did Faye & Andrew

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best places we have ever stayed in, an absolute treat for our 2 families and grandchildren. The location is also fabulous with views over the hills and surrounding countryside.

We enjoyed the house so much we didn't really want to venture out anywhere

the owners made it very easy to book with them and were very friendly and on hand for any help or advice we needed during out stay

We would love to return again for another family occasion in the future like this one

Unproffesional last minute cancellation.

  • 1 of 5


I am absolutely appalled with the way Andrew handled our booking. After booking the house months in advance to celebrate a hen do, we were contacted by Andrew 3 days before the event, cancelling our booking and leaving us without a venue.

We were told the booking had been cancelled as we are a mixed group, and because there were males in attendance, this wasn’t a “hen do”

I feel that we were discriminated against due to the sexual orientation of the males in our group, which wasn’t disclosed when booking the house, as in 2016 we did not think this would happen!

We were told our hen party wasn’t in fact, a hen party, and the whole situation was dealt with rudely and abruptly by Andrew.

He told us he would refund our money, however didn’t do that until the next day. As you can imagine it was extremely difficult finding an alternative house for Easter weekend and incredibly last minute, and so to not transfer our money immediately upon cancellation simply made our situation even worse.

We were most upset to be left without a house 3 days before our party, and to be told our booking was cancelled over email we found most distressing and unprofessional.

Would not recommend!

Owner's Response: We are always sorry when we have to cancel a booking, but it must made clear that the party leader who booked this property did not disclose the fact that it was to be a mixed young group when she booked with us. She opted to keep this from us until the very last minute when we quizzed her as to why she hadn't filled in the details on the booking form asking for ages and how many males and females were to be in attendance. As it turned out once we pressed her for this information it was to be a very young mixed group of boys and girls which we simply do not allow owing to issues we have had previously- yet she said at the time of booking that it was to be a hen party which wasn't the case at all so i am afraid this person only has herself to blame for not being totally upfront with us at the time of booking. We have had many parties where mature ladies and men are in attendance and we never would restrict this kind of booking regardless of sexuality. This person was refunded immediately we informed her that the booking couldn't proceed -within a few minutes in fact by bank transfer and left our bank account straightaway
