'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??

The Space

Perfectly placed for the 2014 Yorkshire Grand Depart stages of the Tour de France!!

Please make an enquiry if you are interested in full weeks over the Summer or Christmas so we can discuss special rates.

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.

With four large bedrooms and a large family bathroom, plus a huge master suite with its own bathroom and dressing room, this is the ideal location for a family holiday. There is also a shower room and toilet downstairs plus a shower and toilet in the pool area/ Indeed, 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. The TV room has a sofabed so can double as a bedroom should extra accommodation be required. Fully equipped with all you need to cook... or just relax and order your dinner from many of the fine local restaurants who deliver to the door of this upmarket suburban address with shops just a few minutes walk 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 2 hrs by regular high speed train from London or Edinburgh. Our house is a 5 minute taxi ride from Brighouse railway station which is on direct lines to and from London, York and Manchester (including a direct train to Manchester International Airport).

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.

  • Phil and Cath's place is wonderful. I hired it for two nights for a hen weekend (12 ladies in total) and it exceeded all my expectations.
    Phil is a great guy to deal with, extremely personable, friendly and helpful right from the start. He went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable throughout our stay. He even picked up and dropped some of us off at the station for which we were very grateful for.

    The house is really lovely with plenty of space and everything you could ever need.
    Of course we spent loads of time in the pool and jacuzzi. The 'disco shower' (as we named it) in the bathroom adjacent to the master bedroom was also a firm favourite!

    The bride to be has expressed it was the best weekend of her life and I’ve no doubt the house played a big part in her experience.

    The rest of the hens all want to join me in saying thanks to Phil and his family for being so hospitable to us- we really had a great time and it made the hen party a very special experience.

  • An absolutely lovely house, impossible to fault.

    We rented the house for a weekend with friends for a birthday celebration and made great use of the pool and Jacuzzi, and had a BBQ in the nice outdoor area – which is a bit of a sun trap for most of the day! The house itself is a great size, with a large kitchen and nice lounge for relaxing in. The bedrooms are a nice mix of doubles and twins.

    Phil and Cath showed us around the house in detail and ensured we had everything we needed before they left, and were happy to drop back in when we had a question.

    Liversidge is a nice area, and a trip in to Leeds was only a short cab journey for food and bars. Would happily use again if the opportunity arose, and will definitely recommend to friends.

  • Large, luxuriously appointed house.
    Great pool & hot tub area opening out onto the terrace with bbq and patio heaters.
    A lot of little extras around: iPod docks, apple TV, big American style fridge freezer, two dishwashers...
    Very friendly hosts; talked us through everything, understanding of our needs as a stag party etc.
    30 mins & £20 taxi ride from Leeds train station if you want to go out in town.

  • I booked Phil and Cath's place for my sister's hen weekend for 13 ladies! The house was just perfect - loads of room for us all, kitchen was fantastic - we hung out in there a lot and cooked all our meals, lovely cosy living room with fire and the swimming pool and jacuzzi were amazing! Was pleasantly surprised at how big the pool was and the jacuzzi was total bliss and very easy to work! Everything was spotlessly clean and Phil and Cath really went the extra mile - providing us with local taxi no., creme eggs on our pillows for Easter, taking delivery of our TESCO shop! We were so impressed with the house that we ended up cancelling our planned night out in Leeds and staying in and making the most of the house!! Would definitely come back again in the future!

  • Cath and Phil's is a modern, comfortable and a private property; I would definitely recommend it to anyone seeking genuine value for money for a luxury property.

    We had 9 people in total for the weekend, but the house could easily accommodate 12/13 comfortably.

    Cath and Phil were fantastic hosts, booking with them was easy, clearly communicated and swift. In person they gave us all a warm welcome, showed us how to use the all important Jacuzzi and multiple lighting systems! Additionally, I do have to give a special shout out to them for fully answering all of my questions in advance.

  • Myself and 11 other students stayed in Phil and Cath's lovely house for one night while we were competing at a competition in Castleford. Phil and Cath gave us a lovely welcome and tour around their house making us all feel comfortable and they were really helpful. We all loved the pool and jacuzzi, this allowed us to have a fun and relaxing night. We would all highly recommend this house to others.
    Thanks again

  • 12 of us went to stay at Phil's beautiful house and it could not of been more perfect. The kitchen is perfect for entertaining and the pool was even better than we thought with it's sound system and jacuzzi! Plenty if cosy sitting rooms for everyone to have a good old gossip! Bedrooms all very comfy... Phil and his wife were perfect hosts, extremely helpful and went above and beyond when one of our cars got a flat tyre! Would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxed get away!

Hi Phil and Cath here. We are a hard working couple with a wonderful 16 year old son who is just doing his GCSEs this spring. I'm currently studying an MBA full-time at Bradford University School of Management, and Catherine is a logistics administrator for Hoyer in Huddersfield. We love our holidays, especially our trips to the US. We have been to the East Coast 3 times and Florida twice and in 2012 we visited the West Coast using AirBNB for accommodation in LA and San Francisco, plus staying with friends in Idaho and Seattle. We also love to travel with our work and have enjoyed business trips all around the world. Cath was a nanny for a Yale professor quite a few years ago. 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 have family locally who we stay with when our house is being used which means we are on-hand to offer any assistance or queries.
