5 star reviews and the only Airbnb house near Leeds with a private indoor pool and jacuzzi.
In 2014, we took 16 bookings all year. In 2015, April & May almost fully booked and June / July now getting busy.
So don't wait - send us an enquiry today!
'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 had the best weekend staying at Phil and Caths for my partners 30th birthday. Even though there were 11 of us there was plenty of space. We were able to relax and have so much fun in a safe and comfortable environment. Thoroughly recommend!
Lovely large home which comfortably sleeps 14 people. There are lots of communal spaces, large living room, large kitchen and dining room, everything you could need. Pool is amazing, large pool with jaccuzzi, and inflatables! Music system plays in the pool area so a really fun way to spend an evening, it was the highlight of our hen do, don't book a night out just have a good playlist on your phone! Lots of parking space, and good amenities nearby. The host are very friendly and had good reccomendation for daytime pubs and bars.
Only thing I would say is be prepared the family do live here in the week, so it wasn't quite like the holiday apartments I have booked through airbnb abroad, as they waited to meet the whole group before leaving, understandably being their main property. although they are totally accommodating of you using their space completely, and all kitchen equipment and even condiments, so you can't fault it.
Thanks for a great weekend.
Thanks Chloe for such a detailed review. Sounds like you all really enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi!
We always like to meet everyone on arrival as there are a lot of things to show people about the house to make sure they get the best from their stay, which it certainly sounds like you and your fellow hens did.
Cheers, Phil and Cath
Had a wonderful time at Phil and Cath's home.
They were both extremly helpful, showing us all around the home and helping us to understand all the gadgets! Pool and the jacuzzi were a clear favourite with all.
Everybody had a brilliant evening.
The weekend in Liversedge was fabulous. Phil and Cath were helpful and very informative. They made us feel very welcome in their beautiful home. We were lucky to find such an ideal venue for our special event. The home was spacious, warm and very comfortable. We had a wonderful time. Thank you Phil and Cath
We hired Phil and Cathy's lovely home for a birthday celebration and had a fantastic time. Phil and Cathy could not have been more welcoming, even helping us set up our karaoke machine! The house was just as per our discussions with lovely bedrooms for all our guests, a great kitchen to prepare our meals and lovely living room. The pool and jacuzzi in particular were a big hit! I would definitely recommend this for groups looking for high quality accommodation for events or holidays.
Brilliant experience. Phil and Cath guided us through our first airb&b.
Good contact and very flexible with their approach to things.
I could not speak more highly of Cath and Phil and their most amazing house.
From the moment I booked they were so helpful, helping with train booking getting us a great value tickets, food delivery and taxi service which was a real support for me.
The house was stunning - so much tech and the pool was awesome. Phil was always on hand if we needed anything so we always felt in safe hands. This was my first Airbnb experience and would be very keen to do it again. Thank you Cath & Phil.
So glad you all had a great time and thank you for saying such nice things about our house. Hope you have a good journey back to London on Grand Central direct from Brighouse to Kings Cross for £30 return! Happy to help there.
All the best to Sam for the wedding in 2 weeks time.
Cath says thanks for leaving behind the business card for the full-time electrician / part-time "Naked Chef" you booked. Apparently she needs some re-wiring doing ;-)

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.
