Luxury, renovated farm with spacious and classy accommodation for families and friends

It's amazing what's hidden in the deep folds of the rolling South Yorkshire countryside, just a short distance – but a world away – from Barnsley and Sheffield. Like Mathers Farm, for example, which takes the phrase 'holiday cottage' and runs rings around it. It's an entire, renovated farmhouse, set amid tree-shrouded lawns, with space for twelve people in six beautiful en-suite bedrooms. Outside, it's dark Pennine stone; inside, decor is crisp and contemporary, with individually styled, colour-coordinated rooms, some of which sit under exposed beams. The beds are all king-sized, there's plenty of storage space, and the en-suites are crisply furnished with decent-sized walk-in showers.

If the guest rooms are cosy and harmonious, the public areas are stunning, especially the truly vast kitchen-dining room which can seat twenty with ease – and you'll need the space if you book Mathers Farm together with the similarly styled Rope Makers Cottage next door. Meals with large families and groups of friends will be no problem whatsoever, as there's been no skimping on facilities – three ovens, two hobs and a massive American-style fridge-freezer are the highlights, and there are no fewer than eight TVs in the house, with a music system in the kitchen and underfloor heating throughout. Upstairs, another big stone-walled and beamed lounge swallows up guests for drinks, games and movie nights.

There's the same emphasis outside on entertaining, with a long patio and barbecue area that will seat everyone, as well as a large hot tub. Kids can play safely in the garden, but to be honest, the whole area is fantastic for family days' out, walks and adventures. The northern part of the Peak District is only a short drive away; head south for a city day out in Sheffield with its excellent museums and restaurants; or twenty minutes' northwest to Holmfirth and 'Last of the Summer Wine' country. The local pub in the village of Thurlstone is within walking distance, or head the couple of miles to Penistone, the nearest market town, one of those quirky Yorkshire destinations with an arty reputation. The local train from here takes you through gorgeous countryside for moorland walks or even shopping at Meadowhall – like we said, it's amazing what's hidden in this stunning part of Yorkshire.
