Britains's Finest Luxury Self Catering

About Tyas Cottage, luxury self catering for 6 near Huddersfield, Yorkshire

Tyas Cottage, a combined cottage and barn, is one of 3 properties within a secluded hamlet in Merrydale, near Slaithwaite and Marsden. It is less than 10km from Huddersfield and 14km from Halifax.

The other two houses in Merrydale are in permanent occupation. It was here, in the early sixteen hundreds, that the first water powered mill in the Colne Valley was built.

As you can see on the aerial photograph, the hamlet is surrounded by "free-to-roam" woodland and fields. Deer live in the woods, and are occasionally seen in the early mornings. Our nearest village, Slaithwaite, is about a twenty minutes walk away.

Secluded, within Merrydale, a sheltered valley, Tyas Cottage is adjacent to an ancient, cobbled pack horse road. The abundant natural birdlife of this local beauty spot includes kingfishers, herons and sparrow hawks.

In addition to the private patio there is a large shared, award winning garden that includes a mill pond, stream and waterfall.

The quality of the furnishings, mainly antiques, can be appreciated from the photos, but special mention must be made of the Georgian mahogany 4 poster bed with its wooden carved ceiling. Our heron The heron is a regular visitor.

Sour dough gift

As an enthusiastic bread maker, it would be a great pleasure to give interested guests some of my sourdough starter (given to me by our local Handmade Bakery - it comes from Finland and has been kept going since 1970!).
