Beautiful Upper Level Barn Conversion, Stunning Woodland Views - pet friendly



Updated: 22-Nov-2016
Barn in Thurstonland, Nr. Holmfirth, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, England - Peaceful Rural Location, Walking Distance To 4 Lovely Villages, 5 Min Drive To Holmfirth

The Barn at Clough Wood sits across the yard from the owners grade II listed farmhouse, with beautiful tree top views over the woodland to the surrounding countryside. A very peaceful & private property with log burning stove, solid oak floors & luxurious bathroom. The property has been designed to ensure guests complete privacy & seclusion with uninterrupted countryside views, no traffic noise and plenty of outside space to explore. The barn has been newly fitted out with great attention to detail, including deep pocket sprung mattresses, Egyptian cotton bed linen and a beautifully appointed kitchen & bathroom.


We are very per friendly at The Barn and will accept 2 dogs no problem. If you'd like to book with more dogs just get in touch as we don't have a fixed upper limit but the number would need to be ok'd before booking.

We ask that dogs are kept off the furniture and if they are allowed into the bedrooms that they don't sleep in / on the beds. The std charge is £10 per dog.

Simply superb!

  • 5 of 5

I treat my partner to a week away for his birthday each year and this stay exceeded all our previous holiday experiences. Beautiful barn conversion. Stylish. Everything you require is there for a great weeks stay. Gorgeous bed and bed linen. Plenty fluffy towels. Bathroom brilliant - bath and shower. Rebecca and Max made us feel really welcome and helpful when required. Otherwise, they left us to it and still had a cheery word or two when they saw us. We had lots of lovely walks from the house and round some of the nearby resevoirs with Stan and Molly, who settled in well and made themselves at home! Have enjoyed my purchase of gorgeous toiletries available too! Thanks. John and Vanessa.

The property was fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant stay. The hosts were great and helpful but not intrusive (just as you would want when seeking a quiet escape away from the busy world!). The property itself was also brilliant. The design was great as was the decor, appliances (comprehensively equipped kitchen), bedrooms and overall finish of everything. I would definitely stay again and would definitely recommend this property to others.

A lovely homely cottage clean and well presented

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is simply gorgeous and very secluded. We had a lovely few days stay and it really felt like a home from home. It is great to find somewhere like this that allows you to take a dog.

The cottage has its own lovely private garden to sit out in even with a little covered part incase of rain .

I shall very much recommend this to family and friends

  • Notes on accommodation: Whilst fitting out the barn we have tried very hard to make it the sort of place that we would like to stay in. We have included things which are important to us - like lovely sheets and towels and a stylish kitchen and bathroom (and no country cottage chinz!). However, as we will be neighbours, should you think of anything that you need you can just ask and we will do our best to sort it out for you. Having said that, we want our guests to feel the benefit of the the privacy & seclusion of Clough Wood, so we would absolutely leave you to our own devices, unless you need our help. Outside: Private woodland garden at the rear of the barn. Outside seating and BBQ. Guests are free to explore the 9 acres of woodland and stream. We also have 3 fields, which have a footpath running through them, up towards Thurstonland Village. Utility Room: A washing machine, pot sink and creel for drying clothes are all located in the underneath of the barn. Space available in chest freezer if required. Microwave, baby cups, high chair available if needed. Please ask when booking. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Egyptian cotton bedlinen and fluffy white towels are provided. Cleaning & fresh sheets & towels available if stay is more than one week. Other: Entrance lobby with antique bureau and comfy armchair. Row of hooks and plenty of space for wellies and walking boots.
