Marsden, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, England
Sparth Cottage is an attractive barn conversion, situated in a quiet, picturesque setting near a canal and wooded lake in the Pennine Colne Valley, just outside the Peak District National Park.

The pretty village of Marsden is only 5 minutes walk down the towpath, with many attractions and events nearby.

Through the front door you enter the beamed living room, with wooden flooring and rugs. There's a cosy sitting area to one side (with TV/DVD and woodburner), and to the other side a fold-out dining table and chairs. The sideboard contains a multitude of games for all ages, and the bookcase has a wide selection of books and DVDs.

*** New for 2017: The cottage now has wireless broadband ***

The kitchen has a slate floor, and is fully equipped with washer/dryer, fridge/freezer, cooker and microwave. There is also an espresso maker,...

Had a lovely few days here. The cottage is cosy and warm with everything you could possibly need. Fabulous location with some lovely walks,perfect for the dog. Marsden was a short walk along the canal with some nice pubs and shops, as was the station. Hopefully return, a great place to stay when visiting the area.

We travelled over from York on the way back down South for a couple of nights with our 2 year old. Lovely views, everything we needed, completely as sold. Enjoyed a walk to standedge and Marsden but spend the rest of the time in the cottage, watched a couple of films and playing games. Kitchen completely stocked, beds comfy and...

A lot of thought and imagination has obviously gone into making Sparth cottage such a comfortable and welcoming place to stay. Judging by the reviews left in the guest book at the cottage, previous visitors feel the same way. The cottage itself is very nicely furnished and decorated with attractive pictures and wall hangings. The kitchen is fully equipped with...
