About the property

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.

Our second visit just as good as our first.....

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to the Barn in Thurstonland and nothing has changed in 3 years....! It has been maintained beautifully and looks just as good as it did 3 years' ago. Very tasteful decor - chic but understated..., high quality bed linens, throws and rugs. Rebecca and Max the lovely owners are just as helpful. The location is very rural but you are within walking distance (just about - maybe not if you have a toddler....) to 4 great pubs - all with different characteristics. Gorgeous views from the sitting room window. We are a family of 4 with a dog - it's very cosy but there is enough room for us all to relax, potter and play. It totally suited our purposes for visiting family in Huddersfield during our winter half term break. We are looking forward to spending a week in the summer at Rebecca & Max's new holiday let - Butts Farm just down the road - which we got a sneak preview of when we were there - it looks fabulous!!

Fabulous haven in the country!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Barn for 3 nights, two adults and two young children. We have nothing but positives for this rental. WOW! The apartment was beautifully appointed, very modern, spotlessly clean, and perfect for a family of four. We had everything we needed for self-catering once we visited a local grocery store. Rebecca was a fabulous hostess and helped at all points in the rental process and during our stay. We were there in the cool, dark, short days of November - - I can imagine this property being even better to visit in the summer, when you could appreciate the outdoors more, go for walks in the vicinity, etc. So we will need to come back! Don't hesitate to rent this property if you are in the area, are in need of a bit more space, and seek tranquility and peacefulness. The views were just beautiful. One note, the Barn is pretty remote and down a dirt path, and finding it in the dark can be a bit challenging without a good navigation system -- so do your research first on how to locate it -- once we were acquainted with the area in the light, however, finding it was much easier.

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.

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.
