This is a wonderful place to stay. Perfect for families and couples looking to relax and unwind but still looking to explore the beautiful countryside right from the property.
This contemporary house is ideally located between the Peak District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks making it the perfect location for those wanting to relax and explore. Thornton is the birthplace of the Bronte family and is just a short drive from the beautiful village of Howarth with its links to all things Bronte. This is a hive for independent businesses boasting chocolate shops and eateries and is famous for little festivals such as Steampunk and the 1960s weekend. The rugged Pennine Way passes nearby as does the Sustrans National Cycle Network, both extremely popular with cyclists and walkers alike. Top Withens and the Bronte waterfalls are also close by, as it the UNESCO World Heritage site, Saltaire, perfect walking for Clayton Beck. Shibden Hall and the Duke of Wellington Regiment military museum that has provided costumes for BBC drama Gentleman Jack are only a 10 minute drive away.
The property is approached up a steep driveway to a side entrance into the boot room. On entering you’ll be amazed by the contemporary open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, perfect for socialising or just relaxing after a day of exploration, bio-folding doors opening out onto a large patio area, where you can enjoy al fresco dining and take in the views of the garden. Prepare a meal in the well-equipped kitchen with electric oven and hob, American style fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher, and enjoy your meal in the dining area with views of the Smart TV, also in the kitchen. The jukebox is a nice touch with many of pre-loaded songs so you can relax with sound of music filling the air. Chill out in the lounge after a long day of exploring with comfy seating and watch a film on the Smart TV. You will also find a second lounge area, with exposed brick work and feature cast iron stove, complete with sofa bed and Smart TV, the perfect spot for spending a little quiet time. Also on the ground floor is a further bedroom, a twin zip-and-link (which can be made up as a super-king-size on request) with TV, and a bathroom with shower over and WC. The stunning iron staircase leads up to the mezzanine style lounge area with comfy seating, large Velux windows, an ideal place to have a quiet read and relax. There is a master bedroom on the first floor, with king-size bed, TV, en-suite shower room and WC.
The outdoor area is equally as impressive as you head out of the bi-folding doors onto the patio area in the enclosed garden, also with a raised decked area, boasting a six person hot tub, perfect for relaxing after a day of exploring in this beautiful part of the world.
