An artist's bedroom in our 1872 house in Dewsbury, complete with paintings and clutter! It has a memory foam mattress on the bed and fast WI-FI throughout. Our house has easy access to motorways & is on a direct train line from Manchester Airport, and to Leeds and York. There is usually space to park inside our garden too. but you can also use public transport to get to the Yorkshire Moors, Huddersfield, Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield & Osset etc.

The space
You are all welcome of course, not just arty people! Your double bed has a dual control electric blanket and a memory foam mattress, though your large bedroom does contain my things too, so is not a Premier Inn! Our peaceful but lived-in house is set in a private crescent, so away from traffic. Jorge is a cameraman and editor, as well as our technology Mr. Fixit! I (Elaine) am the artist and wedding photographer. Between us we speak several European languages: Greek, Spanish, German, French & Italian.

Dewsbury is near several major towns (Leeds, Huddersfield, Bradford, Wakefield, under 10 miles apart) and has easy access to both M1 and M62 so you can explore from our home as a base. We have super fast WI-FI, and in house techie (Jorge). The internet password is in our house manual which Airbnb send you once you have confirmed your booking.

If you like walking there are several lovely walks and woods nearby too, I am veggie but my husband is a carnivore so if you would like to share a meal with us, just let us know. We often travel with our wedding photography and video work - to all sorts of places abroad, so understand how important it is to feel at home when away from home...much more fun than a hotel!

See our guidebook for bus and train station locations: London (189 miles), Leeds (10 miles), Bradford (10 miles), Huddersfield (10 miles), Wakefield (6 miles), Sheffield (30 miles), Manchester (40 miles). Happy to meet you from the train and to either walk up with you to show you the footpath, or to pick you up by car if we are around at the time you arrive. Message me if you'd like help checking best public transport routes, as happy to look them up for you.

If you fancy a bike ride to get around the various Greenways, and Canal tow-paths in the area, you can borrow one of our mountain bikes if you like too. You will still need to go up at least one steep hill to get back to us though! The shower is over a bath so its not ideal if you struggle with your mobility.

Hope to welcome you to our home soon! xx Elaine & Jorge

Where you’ll be

West Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom

We love the peace and quiet, set among old Victorian houses and easy access to main motorways East-West (M62) and North South (M1), large towns nearby for interesting experiences and night life, and quick access to open countryside and Yorkshire Moors.
Dewsbury itself is an old town, with buildings in the centre mainly from the same era as our house. Market days are Wednesdays and Saturdays, where you will see a variety of stalls selling clothes, food, and electrical goods. Apart from several large supermarkets, the town centre is mainly pound shops and charity shops so for serious shoppers Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield or Huddersfield are more likely to be of interest.
Crow Nest Park is an easy walk away - about 10 minutes - if you have time for a quick walk.

I am a happy wedding photographer - international and multicultural (Reel Life Photos) , who travels all over the world capturing images that show the whole day, as it unfolds. This also means I have to spend many hours on my computer, so its good to unwind with our lovely Airbnb guests from time to time. Jorge, my husband, is a filmmaker, so also spends many hours editing, but he too enjoys a good conversation.
We have a map on the wall of our Airbnb room , covered in stars to show where all our guests have come from, over the past 9 years (since July 2010!)
I am also an artist, hence the house full of oil paintings!
Look forward to meeting you some day! xx Elaine and Jorge

During your stay

We interact as little or as much as our guests need. We find most couples prefer to be left to their own devices, but if they need any help , of course we are more than happy to do what we can. We are often downstairs in our respective offices/ workspaces, or out photographing or videoing weddings, so have more flexible working hours than most people. There is usually one of us around at least though, so we do socialise with our guests if time and situations feel right.
