About This Listing
5 star reviews and the only Airbnb house near Leeds with a private (not shared) indoor pool and jacuzzi.
We had 16 bookings in 2014. In 2015, we're currently at 25 with much of Spring and Summer gone.
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.
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!
Our experience was absolutely brilliant. We could not have wished for more from the house or the hosts!
I had been searching for ages for the perfect place to stay for my friends hen do, so I was relieved when I came across Phil and Cath's and it was available :-)
From the moment we arrived Cath and Phil made us feel very welcome and excited to be there, with a big reveal of the pool and Jacuzzi on the tour around the house, which the hen had no idea about.
We used the house as a base for the weekend and went out in Leeds on the Saturday night which was only 15/20mins away in the taxi and then spent the Sunday enjoying the pool and jacuzzi which we all loved!
The couple went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time, even putting away the home shop we arranged to arrive just before we got there. All these things really helped make it weekend none of us will forget!
Thanks both x
Thanks Nicola. We're so glad that you, your fellow hens, and of course the Bride-to-be, "Princess" Fiona had such a great time. Mixing a Leeds night out and a chilled 2nd day was a fab idea. From what we saw, you needed the 2nd day to get over the night out ;-) helped of course by the gorgeous Graham from @henpartymodel :-)
Hope to see some or all of you again. Tell all your friends about us and don't forget to tweet some photos on @henpartyhouse
I am so pleased to be able to leave a 10 out of 10 for Phil and Cath. Not only did they make every inch of our weekend easy, but with their helpfulness they also made it fabulous. I had so many annoying questions about location, food shop delivery, speakers systems and where was good for a party near by. They were always so helpful and made me feel like a guest even before I had arrived.
The house is amazing. Being a big group of girls we loved the pool, massive kitchen where we could all play games and eat together. It was perfect for a big group of mates getting together. Near by there are some pubs-we had a great night out.
Gotta say a huge thanks to Cath for having a good giggle with us when we first arrived, she made us feel relaxed and welcomed. Many thanks guys! X
Wow Bessie! Thank you for saying such nice things. We really do try so hard to help in whatever way we can so you can enjoy your weekend. It was a pleasure having you as guests. Really glad you enjoyed your night out in Brighouse. Certainly not as big as Leeds, but much closer and some great pubs and live music. Hopefully we will see you again for maybe another of your friends hen party in future!
We had a great hen weekend at Phil and Cath's house. The communication up to the stay was fantastic and Phil and Cath are great hosts. Would recommend a visit to this lovely house :)
Phil and Cath were wonderful hosts: before we arrived they were very helpful with transport advice and ideas for local walks/restaurants and during our stay they were very attentive to our needs and were always on hand if we needed any help. The house was great, ideally suited to our needs, fantastic place to party and close to Leeds for all the entertainment the city has to offer. Can't recommend this place or the hosts highly enough, thank you Phil and Cath!
Recently stayed at Phil and Cath's beautiful home. What can I say other than a 5 star experience! Indoor pool, jacuzzi and room enough for 12 lads on a stag do. A really great experience. What's even better is that you're only 25mins out from Leeds, so you can easily indulge in the city's night life. And of course not forgetting our wonderful hosts who were a phone call away for any queries or issues we might have had. All in all, a great experience. Thanks so much for hosting us Phil and Cath!

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.
