Marsden, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, England
Sparth Cottage is an attractive barn conversion, situated in a quiet, picturesque setting near a canal and wooded lake in the Pennine Colne Valley, just outside the Peak District National Park.

The pretty village of Marsden is only 5 minutes walk down the towpath, with many attractions and events nearby.

Through the front door you enter the beamed living room, with wooden flooring and rugs. There's a cosy sitting area to one side (with TV/DVD and woodburner), and to the other side a fold-out dining table and chairs. The sideboard contains a multitude of games for all ages, and the bookcase has a wide selection of books and DVDs.

*** New for 2017: The cottage now has wireless broadband ***

The kitchen has a slate floor, and is fully equipped with washer/dryer, fridge/freezer, cooker and microwave. There is also an espresso maker,...

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.

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...

If a quiet and peaceful stone cottage in the heart of the pennine hills, nicely isolated but not too far from town appeals to you, then Sparth cottage is the ideal location. Set in a picture perfect spot overlooking canal and lake and fabulously surrounded by hills, you will only be a 10-15min walk from the lovely old town of...
