At the front of the house, there is off-street parking for 2-3 cars on a gravel drive and deep flower beds to frame your views out over rolling hills of green grazing land. at the back of the house there is a small lawn and graveled courtyard with garden furniture for dining al fresco. There is also a hose for cleaning down bikes and hiking gear.

Other features

The renovation of the house has been undertaken whilst being mindful of the environmental impact, both in terms of climate change and using a design that is in-keeping with the rest of the village.

Many of the building materials have been salvaged and recycled from other outbuildings that were taken down as part of the renovation or from the farm next door. The heating and hot water system is powered by a woodchip biomass boiler, boosted by solar power.

Surroundings

Situated close to the major routes between Sheffield, Manchester and Leeds, all three cities and surrounds are easily accessible by car. Local towns of Holmfirth and Penistone offer plenty of places to shop, eat and drink

National Route 68 of the National Cycle Network is known as the Pennine Cycleway, West Yorkshire Cycle Route, Route 627 starts in Kirkburton and takes Shepley and Millhouse Green before connecting to the Trans Pennine Trail. There is also access to the Trans-Pennine Trail within 1 km of the Cottage which provides a safe environment for learner cyclists of all ages to practice their skills.
