  • About the property

    Set on the edge of the Peak District and nestled amongst the owners’ working farm, Bilberry Bank Cottage is a delightful home from home offering a high degree of privacy and tranquillity. Original features and charming interiors have been thoughtfully combined with luxurious and modern amenities to create a warm and inviting space to unwind. Should you wish to venture beyond your cottage, explore the nearby adventure trail on foot or two wheels, head to the small market town of Holmfirth or discover all that wider Yorkshire has to offer.

  • The space

    The cottage begins with a handy porch with enough storage for shoes and coats. After a day of exploring, slip off your wellie boots and head to the cosy living room which is brimming with character and sets the tone for what the rest of the cottage has in store. Exposed wooden beams and unique antiques provide the finishing touches, whilst three comfortable sofas and a Smart TV, make for the perfect place to socialise and relax beside the toasty log-burning stove.

    The country-style kitchen is a particularly sociable space with its open-plan layout and eight-seater dining table. You will have access to an Aga from the beginning of October to the end of April depending on the weather, an electric oven, a dishwasher, an American-style fridge/freezer, a kettle and a microwave, so you can truly self-cater with ease throughout your stay. There is also a small TV and a radio to use at your own leisure.

    The conservatory offers an additional living space where you can nestle into the inviting sofas to read, play a board game or gather around the additional eight-seater dining table for a bite to eat. When the day draws to a close, make use of the spotting scopes for some late-night stargazing in this idyllic and tranquil location.

    The ground floor also features a well-equipped utility room which comprises a washing machine, a tumble dryer and an additional fridge/freezer, plus a separate WC with a shower.

    Venture upstairs where you will find four stunning bedrooms, each with breathtaking views of the countryside and sumptuously soft furnishings. There is a king-sized bedroom with a four-poster bed and an en-suite shower room, a super-king size bed with a zip and link to form two singles and an en-suite shower room. Finally, the double bedroom and the adult-sized bunk bedroom both share the family bathroom with a double-ended bath and a mixer shower tap.

    The outside space is what can only be described as the jewel in the crown of this property. You will have access to an all-weather dining dome with an eight-seater rattan table with a Lazy Susan and wine cooler. An undercover hot tub with an inviting sofa and panoramic countryside views. Additionally, there is a stunning lawned garden, ample seating, a fire pit and a BBQ.
