The Old School House, Carlecotes, Penistone, South Yorkshire, Peak District National Park

The Old School House is in a beautiful part of South Yorkshire in the pretty hamlet of Carlecotes. For those who want a relaxing break away, we are truly the ideal location. We are a comfortable and relaxing retreat on the northern edge of the Peak District National Park and just a short drive from Penistone & Sheffield. 

A cosy holiday home for a couple or small family. It has been thoughtfully appointed to ensure it includes everything you need for an enjoyable break away.

On your arrival, you will find free-range eggs from next door, local farm milk, and tea and coffee. Once you’ve been given the cottage keys space is yours – we may not meet again until you leave, but we will always be available if you need suggestions for places to visit or to eat out during your stay.

Carlecotes is a peaceful hamlet to the north of the Park District National Park and this remote cottage enjoys an elevated position (at 1150′) with ever-changing open moorland views. On many days you can watch the weather as it approaches: drifting clouds and mists, starry nights. We are superbly located with easy access to the Trans Pennine Trail for walking and cycling. The nearest towns are Holmfirth and Penistone, a 10 minute drive away – the latter is also on the Trans Pennine Trail. 

We’re ideally situated for those who want to enjoy the Pennine and Peak District countryside, yet close enough to major cities and towns to use as a base if you would like to explore the wider region. Barnsley, Stocksbridge, Huddersfield, Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield and York are all easily reached by car.
