Tyas Cottage, Merrydale, Slaithwaite, West Yorkshire (Sleeps 1-6)

Tyas Cottage in Merrydale, offers spectacular self-catering accommodation in a combined cottage and barn. The 17th Century building, on the site of the Colne Valleys historic first water-powered mill, adjoins an ancient pack-horse route, river, waterfall and millpond and is surrounded by woodlands and fields. Not only is it a truly idyllic and secluded holiday destination, but it is also "green". ie carbon neutral. Underfloor heated by wood pellets, it is massively insulated, has spring water, solar panels and an electric vehicle charging point.

The property sleeps up to 6 people in 2 twin rooms and a double room with an antique carved mahogany four-poster bed. As the spacious farmhouse kitchen is often used as a second living room and one of the bedrooms and a shower room are downstairs, the cottage is often used for family get-togethers where grandparents have limited mobility.

The spiral staircase, which can be made safe for young children, leads to an elegant, beamed sitting room with a wood burner. The two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms are also upstairs and the balcony above the private stone-paved barbecue area can be accessed from the upstairs living room

In addition to its private patio, there is a large shared, award-winning garden that includes the millpond, stream and waterfall.

Despite its secluded setting, Tyas Cottage is close to numerous attractions as well as the moors and Pennine Way. It is a great spot for bird watching and there are many local walks, both on open moors or in sheltered valleys. When the weather is fine, guests often so enjoy walking through the woods to the Rose and Crown or sitting in the sculptural garden swings that they stay put for much of their visits. Shibden Hall, is nearby and has recently become hugely popular because of the "Gentleman Jack" TV series in which it is filmed.
