Cottage in Almondbury, Nr. Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England - An Ideal For Walking Or Touring Centre
Cruck Cottage is surrounded by beautiful countryside and is the ideal base to explore the area. A network of footpaths from the garden gate will take you in 10 minutes to the Iron Age site on the summit of Castle Hill to enjoy wonderful views across Huddersfield and the tributary valleys, or on easy rambles through woods and fields or longer hikes over the Pennine moors. The Peak District and Bronte country are both within easy driving distance, as are the excellent shopping centres of Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield for those in search of a little retail therapy. There is plenty of culture to be found in the area with local museums, a theatre, galleries of nationally known artists, and many musical events, including the 10 day Contemporary Music Festival which attracts artists from all over the world. There are craft shops and mill shops, open markets and flea markets and the largest number of Grade II listed buildings outside Bath!
