5 star graded by VisitBritain, Tyas cottage comfortably accommodates 6 people in 3 double bedrooms. We're located within a small hamlet on the site of the first water-powered mill in the Colne Valley (17th century), 7 miles from Huddersfield & 10 from Halifax, West Yorkshire. Our little valley, Merrydale, is designated as a Site of Scientific Interest, because of its flora and fauna. The cottage is furnished mainly with antiques and has its own stone paved secluded terrace as well as a large shared garden that was featured in the magazine "25 Beautiful Gardens". This contains a mill-pond and is bounded by a river and large waterfall. To enquire, please call 07909 682119 or the number below.
Tyas Cottage, within the sheltered, wooded valley, Merrydale, is at the end of a secluded cobbled, cul-de-sac. This was an ancient, pack-horse route. Being adjacent to 'free to roam' woodlands makes it a magical place for children and the gardens include a hazel tunnel and and a swing (next to the waterfall). The nearby canal and Standedge Tunnel have been recently restored, and Tyas Cottage is within walking distance of the Pennine Way and Marsden, home of the Riverhead Brewery. Please visit our website for a virtual tour, location plan and plenty of photos. It is an unusually energy efficient cottage (in addition to its insulated ground floors, triple insulated walls, under-floor heating and double glazing throughout, energy for its hybrid heating system is provide by the following: a wood burning stove, a multi-fuel cooker and boiler, a solar thermal array and an air-source heat pump). Our recently installed a water-driven turbine, although operational, awaits completion of the electrical elements of the system (due for completion by the end of 2009).
The holiday cottage is fully equipped, and has 3 bedrooms (2 ensuite), as well as a spacious living room, hall, and kitchen area, terrace and balcony. Please refer to our website for a detailed layout and comprehensive information about the accommodation - and lots of photos.
