Upper Hagg Cottage

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Netherthong, Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, England
Upper Hagg Cottage is an amazingly unique and tasteful blend of an early 18thC. home, complete with mullioned windows, exposed original stonework, beams and a 21stC. interior, with suspended staircase and bright, modern furnishings. Pennine Yorkshire is an area of outstanding beauty, contrasting the verdant green hills & luxuriant valleys with its role as a centre of the Industrial Revolution evidenced by the former mill towns and their architecture. Local mill towns are now vibrant centres of art, entertainment and independent coffee and eating establishments.

Whilst not really suitable for children (open suspended staircase, 'industrial type' grill flooring and expanses of mirrors and glass including the dining table) it is ideal for that romantic getaway or for chilling with friends and as a base for walking, touring and...

Quirky little cottage, well equipped, great base for exploring Yorkshire with our two grandchildren. They want to return with their parents!

Thanks for your kind words Almuth. Upper Hagg cottage is an adventure in itself! A perfect base for exploration of all kinds, arts, nature, scenery and history. We'd be delighted to see the family again.

Upper Hagg cottage is delightful, cosy and very well equipped. The log burner and underfloor heating kept us warm in chilly weather! Bathrooms clean and bedroom is extremely comfortable. The cottage was ideal for an Easter break and some long walks in the countryside.

Upper Hagg Cottage is where traditional rural Yorkshire life meets the 21st century seemlessly. The cottage has all the old features, stone walls, fireplaces, beams and rafters but with the comfort and style of 21st century living. We loved our stay here. The cottage kitchen...More

So glad you enjoyed our (magnificent - even if I so say myself) early 18thC/21stC eclectic mix. You have truly been outstanding guests and we hardly knew you'd been because you left the place so clean and tidy. Thank you. Please do come again. I'm...More

About the neighbourhood
The immediate area is quite rural with fields all around the cottages that are adjacent to the farm. The town centre of Honley is just 1 mile away and Holmfirth just a little more in the opposite direction. About 400m away, between the cottage and the main Holmfirth road (leading to the now famous Tour de France cycle route up the 'Côte de Holme Moss') is the small but ancient woodland of Hagg Wood in which is a group of bronze age field cairns. The hilly terrain means that even in the centre of a local town, you are never far from lush open fields or moors. idyllic.
Getting around
The main Woodhead Rd (A6024, c. 800m from the cottage) is the route South to Holmfirth, the Derbyshire Dales and also North to Huddersfield, the Yorkshire Dales and the M62 motorway to Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Hull (City of Culture 2017). The 310 bus (every 30 minutes) stops at the bottom of Hagg Wood Rd for travel to Huddersfield or to Hepworth via Holmfirth.

Using SatNav, the postal code HD9 6NJ will take you directly to the cottage itself and not merely to the 'proximity'.

Upper Hagg Cottage is to be found up a short, unmade road off the main Upper Hagg Rd (West side), opposite a solitary stone built house named 'Hagg Leys', No.1 Upper Hagg Rd. That house name and number is easily seen from the main road.

400m up the unmade road you will see a line of cottages on the right and you may park in the parking area on the left, opposite 4 Upper Hagg Rd.
