Tyas Cottage self catering accommodation for six
The cul-de-sac lane that leads to Tyas Cottage is an ancient, cobbled pack horse route and, apart from the sound of falling water, the property is quiet and rural.
Tyas Cottage is very spacious. It sleeps up to 6 people and has been recently restored. We're located in a small hamlet within an idyllic local beauty spot on the site of the first water-powered mill in the Colne Valley. The cottage is in a small hamlet within in its own little valley, Merrydale, which leads off the Colne Valley. It is roughly between Slaithwaite and Marsden and 7 miles from Huddersfield.
The holiday cottage and adjoining shared gardens are surrounded on three sides by woodland with Merrydale Clough to the east. There is a lovely walk alongside the river to Slaithwaite village.
Slaithwaite railway station is on the Newcastle to Liverpool route and the M62 is also within 5 minutes journey time. The nearby canal and Standedge Tunnel have been recently restored. There is a pub/restaurant a short (but steep and sometimes muddy) walk away. For the more serious walker, the Riverhead Brewery in Marsden is a fine reward - specially for its beer and its excellent food.
The holiday cottage is fully equipped. It has 3 bedrooms, a spacious living room, dining/hall, and kitchen area. There is a colour satellite TV as well as a smaller portable TV as well as broadband access. Its antique furniture includes a Georgian mahogany 4 poster bed with a carved ceiling, Cape Dutch furniture, a large mulberry wood table and an oak refectory table.
On the ground floor, as well as a farmhouse kitchen and hall, the cottage has a twin-bedded room, shower room/W.C. and a spiral staircase to first floor.
Relax in the lovely spacious beamed first floor sitting room with its wood-burner.
Other bedrooms are the double bedroom with a carved antique four-poster bed and en-suite bathroom/W.C and the twin-bedded room also with an en-suite bathroom/W.C.
In addition to the free-to-roam woodlands (with their waterfall & river) and a shared award winning garden, there is also a private terrace on two levels, the upper one leading off the first floor living room.
There is a children's swing next to the waterfall and sculptural seating pods overlook the mill pond (in the shared garden).
