'God's Own County', as we Yorkshire folk like to call it, has been named European destination 2013 at the World Travel Awards and also the third best holiday destination in the world by Lonely Planet!! So what's stopping you from coming to visit us??
We are proving really popular for hen or stag parties and you will save a fortune that you would otherwise spend on food and drink if you stayed in a hotel. Check our reviews.
This large lovely modern house with a large indoor heated swimming pool and jacuzzi offers ample parking, and is excellently positioned with York, Liverpool, Manchester, the Yorkshire Dales and the Peak District all no more than 90 minutes away using excellent road and rail links.
Upstairs we have four large bedrooms with options for twin or double beds, and a large family bathroom. We also have a huge master suite with its own bathroom and dressing room. There is also a shower room and toilet downstairs that can be used by guests sleeping in our additional 4 beds downstairs. We also have a shower and toilet in the pool area. The house is big enough for two or even three families to share.
There's a giant kitchen, a cosy TV room with a 52 inch screen with Sky and PS3, a large living room with seating for 9 and a 47 inch TV with Wii, Sky and AppleTV (updated since photos), conservatory and dining room. Our large kitchen with huge island is fully equipped with all you need to cook... or just relax and order your dinner delivered from many of the great local takeaways. We also have shops and a post office with a free ATM just a minute away.
If you want to be outside we have sofas and chairs and a large table for eating. We also have 2 state of the art patio heaters for those chilly evenings.
Yorkshire is just over 2 hrs by train from London or Edinburgh. Our house is a 5 minute taxi ride from Brighouse, 10 minutes from Dewsbury and 25 minutes from Leeds railway stations which are on direct lines to and from London, York and Manchester (including Manchester International Airport). We also have a bus stop just across the road that allows you to access all the local towns and cities.
Our home is the ideal base from which to visit the famous Roman walled city of York, full of great visitor attractions, pedestrianised shopping zones and excellent eateries. We are also less than 30 minutes drive from the home of the Brontes, Haworth. But with the pool and rural wildlife havens on the doorstep, it makes a holiday home in itself.
It is a no smoking property... but there's a fine patio and deck area for nicotine addicts, just outside the kitchen.
Entire house is yours, including private indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi.
Interaction with Guests
Of course the house is all yours for the duration of your stay, but live in a second home locally to be around to offer assistance or advice if needed.
No Smoking in the house please, outside is fine.
Please do not eat food other than in the kitchen and dining room and be very careful drinks are all put on coasters as we have a lot of wooden surfaces.
No outdoor shoes upstairs and no high heels anywhere in the the house so as not to damage the wooden floors.
As we are still regularly using the house, we do have some clothes and toiletries in the bathrooms and wardrobes/drawers. If you need us to clear more space please do let us know in advance.
Normal departure time is 11am. However, by arrangement and an additional fee we can accommodate later, mid-afternoon departures which are ideal if you want a late brunch and a swim before heading off home.
We've just returned from a fantastic stay at Phil and Cath's house this weekend. They were so helpful in planning the weekend and made sure we had everything we needed.
The house was lovely, perfect for our group of 12 and the pool and jacuzzi added the finishing touch.
Highly recommended as a base for activities around the Yorkshire and the Peaks
I booked the House for me and my 13girlies for my Hen Weekend. To say we had fun was putting it lightly we had a ball. This was mostly down to my girls spoiling me but also down to the house.
I was so impressed with the house when I arrived and so jealous I wanted it for myself.
All of us was so cosy and felt at home. The house had everything you could need and more. We were all comfy with what was on offer. We loved most of all the kitchen, garden area and mostly the pool and Jacuzzi where we spent most of our time.
Full recommend this for anyone planning a weekend away or hen party.
We had an absolutely fantastic time at the Vicarage!
The house had everything we needed and more: we were so impressed with the garden and pool area, not to mention the kitchen facilities and all the comfortable beds. This is the perfect house for having an amazing hen party – and then sleeping it off afterwards!
Cath and Phil could not have been more helpful: they have been in touch regularly from the time of booking 6 months ago right up until 10 minutes before we arrived with loads of helpful tips and local recommendations. I had never planned anything like this before and they really made the whole process much easier. No request was too big – not even catering a BBQ for 15 hungover hens! They also accommodated our last minute changes and added those extra details (plastic champagne flutes for the pool!) that really made the weekend as special as it could be.
I would recommend this house to anyone wanting a plan a fun weekend away where everything you need is all in one place and where your guests cannot fail to be impressed by their accommodation!
Thanks Cath and Phil – this house has it all.
Chloe. Thank you for such a fantastic and detailed review. We really enjoyed hosting you all and so glad you enjoyed staying @henpartyhouse. Hope to see some or all of you again in future :-)
All the best for the wedding and have a great summer!
Cheers, Phil and Cath
Phil was the best host you could hope for! Ever willing to deal with our constantly changing plans, and offered everything we needed from takeaway menus to paracetamol. House very clean, tidy and spacious. Highly recommend - you won't be disappointed.
Thank you so much to Phil and Cath for letting us hire your beautiful house. We had an amazing one night stay, and Phil and Cath made us feel so at ease from arrival to check out, which were both extremely smooth. The house is absolutely stunning, with all the facilities you could possibly want and need and all the added extras too. Everything is of the highest standard, including the owners. Phil and Cath were extremely helpful, from enquiry to booking they could not have done more for us, including giving some ideas for entertainment during our stay which definitely did not disappoint! I could not recommend this property more, for whatever the occasion you will have a wonderful stay. It made my 21st birthday something I will never forget.
Just wanted to say a big thank you. We couldn't have asked for a more welcoming host. All you advice and help was invaluable in planning our weekend away in your lovely home.
An amazing place to stay and the perfect way for us to celebrate a 30th birthday with all of our friends. Couldn't possibly find fault with the home or Phil and Cath as hosts, so accommodating and gave us brilliant recommendations for local walks and places to eat and drink. Would love to come and stay again in the future and would strongly recommend anyone considering a stay here to do so. The house really has to be seem to be believed!

About the Host, Cath And Phil
Hi Phil and Cath here.
We are a hard working couple with a wonderful 16 year old son, Emerson, who is studying IT at college. I am Marketing Director for an Internet of Things Smart Home company having just taken a career break to study an MBA and Catherine is a logistics administrator for UPS in Huddersfield.
We love our holidays, especially our trips to the US. We have been a number of times, either staying with friends in Dallas, Denver and Idaho, or of course using Airbnb. I also use Airbnb much of the time whilst travelling with work in the UK and Europe.
Our home is a great place for entertaining and relaxing with friends and family. We are regularly having people visit and stay with us and it is great that AirBNB gives others a chance to use our home to enjoy time with their family and friends too. We actually have a small 2nd home locally where we stay when our house is being used which means we are on-hand to offer any assistance or queries.
