This Grade II listed restored barn enjoys an elevated position with stunning views within a peaceful and picturesque valley.

Appleshine Cottage is a Grade II listed barn, dating back to the 17th-Century, which has been lovingly restored into a characterful holiday home and has retained many of its original features including exposed stone walls and original beams. Located in the small Yorkshire village of Almondbury, Appleshine Cottage enjoys an elevated position within a peaceful and picturesque valley and has stunning 360-degree countryside views. The property looks out towards Castle Hill and The Victoria Tower, a folly which was built to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. On the edge of the Peak District and close to the North Yorkshire Moors, this is a great base for those who love the outdoors with many walks from the doorstep, from a gentle stroll to more challenging treks and trails. Other leisure activities available locally include cycling, golf, horse riding and clay pigeon shooting. Almondbury is on the edge of the ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ country just 4 miles from the popular town of Holmfirth which has a wide variety of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. There is also a good selection of pubs within a 15 minute walk, some of which offer food. A wider range of facilities can be found in Huddersfield which again is approximately 4 miles. The area is rich in culture with notable theatres in Bradford (the Alhambra) and Leeds (The Grand). The region also plays host to a number of music festivals throughout the year, including Marsden’s jazz festival and Huddersfield’s contemporary music festival. Families will particularly enjoy the Eureka! Science museum at Halifax, 11 miles, Bradford’s National Media Museum, 16 miles, and the Royal Armouries at Leeds, 22 miles. Other places of interest, within easy driving distance, include Bretton Sculpture Park, 9 miles, Haworth and Bronte Country, 22 miles, Manchester, 32 miles and Harrogate 36 miles. The historic city of York can also be reached by car in just over an hour. National Trust properties within easy reach include Nostell Priory and Parkland, Hardcastle Crags, both 15 miles, East Riddlesden Hall, 18 miles and Lyme Park, 23 miles. Shop 1 mile, pub 1½ miles and restaurant 1 mile.

    Great cottage, nice friendly owners. Beautiful views from cottage & so peaceful. The cottage is a bit in the middle of nowhere , so you are about 30 minutes drive to any town, there are some really nice villages nearby though. This cottage would be ideal for a romantic break where you weren't travelling about too much. Overall a great cottage, very clean and comfortable. Watch your head on the wooden beams upstairs !

    The cottage is in an excellent tucked-away location. It was easy to find though thanks to the directions provided. The owner was pleasant and helpful to deal with. The cottage itself was attractive and had everything needed although it would be very cramped for 4 adults. It was OK if snug for two of us. There is quite a lot of ornaments etc decorating the cottage, minimalists may be tempted to remove some of it! Parking is spacious and safe. The wifi worked well. There is no dishwasher however there is convenient access to washer / dryer /freezer in an area shared with the owner. The garden and patio area was comfortable and great in the sunshine. There is an excellent view of the distant hill with a stone tower at the top.

    Appleshine cottage has fabulous views and beautiful walks from the door. The cottage has a lovely private outside seating area. We did not need to use the car all week which made it a very relaxing holiday.

    In a beautiful and peaceful location with great open views across the valley. We had a very comfortable week here on family business but would definitely return for a holiday. Probably the upstairs bedroom and bathroom is more suited to children due to the limited headroom but it is a stunning room with original beams and great views. The cottage is full of character and has a wonderful outside sitting area. Great bed and shower. We were made very welcome by the owner.
