This was our third visit to Cuckstool Cottage. Without doubt it is one of the most welcoming holiday rentals we have enjoyed across much of Europe. Philippa and Alan are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble to ensure a very relaxing stay from the moment of booking through to the completion of your stay. It is a real home from home for us and our dogs and in a perfect location to visit this area and for us, our friends and family. The only danger for us is that by giving such a glowing recommendation, it will become so popular that we struggle to get a booking in subsequent future years! We fully intend a return same time next year.
This is a lovely place to stay. It is in a great location close to local amenities. There is a lovely pub up the road called The White Hart where you find a friendly atmosphere and nice food. There are some nice shops in the village. You are also close to some nice attractions and not far from Barnsley, Wakefield and Huddersfield. Looking forward to staying again next year.
Just returned from our 10 night stay at this lovely cottage in Denby Dale. The cottage is fully equipped with anything you might need. It's situated in a great location overlooking the cricket field and just minutes away from a walk in the woods.
Excellent for a family of five like ours. We will surely return to it.
Had a great few days staying at the cottage there is every thing you need and more really comfy beds nice and clean the location is brilliant would go back again some time would have liked to have stayed longer really enjoyed our stay
We wanted a nice, quiet home for a week for my wife, son, friend, dog and myself. So the size of the cottage was great. It was very clean, uncluttered and welcoming.
The location was perfect for us too as we wanted to visit a lot of the nearby nature reserves and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
Withers Wood nature reserve was just up the road and was loved for the morning dog walk. The lad loved the Kirklees Light Railway and the swimming pool at Scissett.
My son has special educational needs so it was very reassuring to have locks on all the windows and a couple on the door. We did have to move some of the ornaments just to be on the safe side though! The kitchen was well equipped and a good size for us as was the living room, which has plenty of space.
The garden is very small, but to be honest, why would you want to spend time in a garden when there are such great open spaces to explore?
In fact there are so many places still to visit we are currently booking another week at the cottage for next year's summer holiday.
Stayed here for a 3 night break and it is a gem of a village with pubs,butchers,wine merchants,shops and more , great walks out of the front door with lots to do within 30/45 mins drive . Cottage is very well laid out with good space for a family of 5 . Only one observation being could do with another easy chair in the lounge as had to squeeze on to 2 sofas ,however we will definitely return .
The cottage is warm and welcoming and just as described. The kitchen was great with lots of space and everything you could need. Beds are really comfy which isn't always the case in holiday cottages. We found the area around very interesting and Denby Dale has lots of shops and places to eat. We found a really good deli in the village. If you have time visit Holmfirth which is very close.
