We travelled over from York on the way back down South for a couple of nights with our 2 year old. Lovely views, everything we needed, completely as sold. Enjoyed a walk to standedge and Marsden but spend the rest of the time in the cottage, watched a couple of films and playing games. Kitchen completely stocked, beds comfy and place clean and well maintained. Even greeted by a packet of biscuits and milk :-) would definately recommend and return should we return to the area. Only opportunities were place was slightly chilly at times and we struggled with the heating and shower not as powerful as I like, but certainly nothing major to note. Happy visitors.

“Highly recommended beautiful, cosy and homely little cottage in idyllic location!”

A lot of thought and imagination has obviously gone into making Sparth cottage such a comfortable and welcoming place to stay. Judging by the reviews left in the guest book at the cottage, previous visitors feel the same way.

The cottage itself is very nicely furnished and decorated with attractive pictures and wall hangings. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed for making something as simple as a packed lunch or three course meal given the inclination to do that!

The main bedroom has a very comfortable double bed with memory foam mattress, and the second bedroom with bunk beds is just gorgeous! The owners of the cottage obviously have experience of children and the things that inspire and ignite their imaginations.

Outside the cottage is surrounded by beautiful hills and moorland higher up. It is very close to a small reservoir, to the canal and a river; all of which make the area very lush and green. Although I expect the moorland higher up is much drier.

There are many lovely walks in the area. During my week's stay I walked twice along the canal to Slaithwaite (pronounced Slough-it locally) where there are some lovely places for coffee and/or lunch etc. Try the Vanilla Bean, Ashbys or the Little Bridge cafe bar which has a beautiful verandah seating area overlooking the river.

The little town of Marsden is very pretty but also fascinating with its lovely stone buildings and the old Mill buildings which add great character to the place.
The Riversmeet pub is an idyllic spot for drinks and food right by the river at the bottom of Peel Street.

The cafe at Standedge visitor centre also does excellent coffee and fruit scones!

The cottage is an ideal Base for day trips further afield. I did not have a car but there is a very good rail network with connections far and wide from Huddersfield (6-7 miles) and Manchester Victoria stations.

All in all I had a wonderful weekend, and was quite sorry to have to leave and return home to Somerset. I would definitely love to stay again.

Highly recommended!

“A great cottage holiday”
Reviewed 12 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We had a lovely stay for 3 nights at Sparth Cottage. It was clean, tidy, with a good selection of books, maps and DVDs relating to the area. It's so quiet you'd think you were in the middle of nowhere, but in reality you've got everything on the doorstep. We'll definitely be back.

“Brilliant cottage in quiet location”
Reviewed 19 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Sparth cottage is beautifully situated next to the Sparth reservoir and the canal, and beyond the distant views of the moors will make you want to head for the hills. There are wonderful walks from the cottage, so no need to drive out somewhere. Marsden is very much a walkers are welcome kind of place. The cottage is warm, cosy and very comfortable and great to relax in after a day out. It is very quiet and we still have much more to explore so we'll be back. We loved it!
