  • Sleeps 8
  • Perfect for Families
Historic, light-filled, rural cottage, beautifully renovated for family and friends' holidays

If you're looking for a family and friends getaway in beautiful Yorkshire Pennine countryside, Rope Makers Cottage definitely fits the bill. It sleeps eight in four double bedrooms itself, but can also be booked with neighbouring Mathers Farm, which sleeps another twelve, so groups of up to twenty guests can be accommodated.

The handsome stone property is what they call a 'weaver's cottage' in these parts, with the distinctive rows of windows on the upper storeys designed to allow in as much light as possible so that old-time weavers could continue working until late. What that means today is four light-filled, en-suite bedrooms with plenty of space, one featuring a Juliet balcony overlooking the gardens. There's also a family bathroom. Downstairs, it's beautifully appointed too, with a fabulous, high-spec kitchen-diner and open-plan living area, as well as a separate upstairs lounge, and a games room in the converted garage. Everything sits under imposing, exposed wooden beams, so you really do feel that they've kept the best parts of the original building while making it as modern and comfortable as possible. Outside, there's a lawned garden, barbecue, patio and hot tub, while local pubs and the small village of Thurlstone are within walking distance.

For days out in the countryside, the Trans-Pennine Trail runs right past the property, a long-distance walking and cycling route that you can dip in and out of. Or the Peak District National Park is only a short drive away, for circular walks, cavern visits, riverside strolls and cycle routes along disused railways. Nearest town, two miles away, is Penistone, which has shops, pubs and restaurants, and a railway connection to Sheffield, if you fancied a day in the city.



Available all year.
