Look at the previous reviews which sum up the place very well. If you are looking for a base for travelling to Sheffield, Manchester, Summer wine country (Holmfirth 6 miles away) then this is ideal. York is only an hour away.The scenery is breathtaking. Barnsley market is a must - so much good quality local produce there. If you like cask beer then follow the signs out of the village to Thurlstone which is on the way to Penistone and drop into the Huntsman. Sunday is roast day and they do food on certain other occasions. Not all week though as it is a "locals" pub with up to six beers on draught. Another great option is to follow the satnav to High Bradfield and the Bradfield Brewery ( satnav code is S6 6LG) to purchase stocks to take home, then on towards Loxley (1 mile up the road) to their own pub The Old Nags Head (S6 6SJ). Pie chips, mushy peas and a pint for £5.75. To be honest it was the best I have had for many years. Peter the owner will assist as much or as little as you want and he had suffered a couple of last minute hitches with heat and windows and in the extreme weather we were glad of his tips. He is on the case and these little glitches will be sorted very quickly. In no way did this detract from our stay. In all, we know the reviews before are all good and this one also confirms what previous have said. If you book you will see in the guest book at the cottage that the Bye family have been here 17 times so far. Enough said really.

“Fantastic stay, and the extra things Peter done for us made it a Birthday to remember”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We have stayed before, and really love the place, came this time for my wifes 40th, and she did not want any fuss.
However i did not want it just to be another birthday, so just a few words to Peter, and he sorted out everything, Flowers, bubbly (even returned to shop to get the right one) fruit basket.
We also had our 6 month old baby with us, and evetrything we needed was there, everytrhing was thought off.
Fantastic Penine walks and views too
We will be back, you bet we will. Thank you Peter

What a brilliant cottage, great location and well equipped. I think Peter has thought of everything including the nice touch of the free range eggs, milk and bread. If you like walking, either serious or just strolling then this is the place for you, great scenery and the nights are so quiet, good for star gazing too. Don't want to praise too much as might not find a vacancy for our next visit.

This is our 3rd time at this lovely quaint cottage. The owner always makes us feel welcome and the cottage is dog friendly. Our dog loves his walks around the countryside. There lots of great places to eat and Holmfirth is a must place to visit. We can't wait to return, which will be soon.

“recharged in South Yorkshire”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 for a stay in May 2012

My wife and I spent a wonderful week in the Old School House last summer and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We don't get out of London much and it was my wife's first time any further north than Birmingham and we both loved our week in South Yorkshire. Peter was very helpful with directions and advice on travelling up, all done via email and with the minimum of fuss. The cottage itself was immaculate and well appointment and we felt very much at home in no time at all. We spent our days exploring the surrounding area and doing day trips into the Peak District. An all round enjoyable week that recharged a couple of jaded Londoners!
