Around and about

‘Woodlands Farm' serves as a fantastic base to explore the best that West Yorkshire, and the nearby Peak District Natonal Park has to offer.

If you are a stranger to the area, the Kirklees area is most well known for being the backdrop for ITV's 'Where the heart is', and nearby Holmfirth for the iconic series 'Last of the summer wine'.

Whether you are into lazy walks around the Blackmoorfoot Reservoir, or more energetic hikes around the local hills and fells.......this place has it all.

Into cycling? Why not try to emulate Bradley Wiggins or Chris Froome, and take on a stage of the infamous leg of the Tour De France or the Tour of Yorkshire.

After all of that you may fancy a pint (or two), and the area won't disappoint with an array of quintessential country pubs. Enjoy a meal out at the highly recommended ‘Bulls Head’ or ‘Wills O Nats’ complete with it’s own beer garden.........perfect for any sunny day. The nearby village of Meltham offers fine dining by way of the Quirky Corner restaurant, and Holmfirth the perfect location for a cosmopolitan night out.

Staying in for the night and there are local Chinese takeaways that deliver, or acclaimed Indian takeaways nearby. Locally sourced meat and produce can be found in Meltham if you want to take the opportunity to show off your culinary skills in front of your guests.

Fancy taking in some Premier League football, Huddersfield is a short hop away from the nearby Marsden train station. Alternatively regular rail services allow you to take in the best that Manchester and Leeds have to offer.

Come and visit us, and be sure of a 'great big' Yorkshire welcome.
