The origins of Ashes Common Farm date back to the 17th century. The cottage was formerly an outbuilding of a typical dairy farm, but has been transformed in recent years to make a very attractive, individual holiday cottage.

Cruck Cottage
The 17th Century cruck beam and roof timbers make an attractive framework for the living room of the cottage. It is well furnished with a comfortable sofa and chairs, a polished beech dining table, coffee table,colour television, and DVD/ video player. There is a gas fire in the living room in addition to the central heating.

The kitchen area has a gas cooker, microwave oven, fridge/freezer, electric coffee filter, kettle, toaster and a full range of cooking utensils. There is an automatic washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board.

There are two bedrooms: a family room with a double and a single bed, and a single room, each furnished with a wardrobe, chest of drawers, shelves, chair and bedside lights. Beds are equipped with sheets, pillows, duvets and bedspreads. The bathroom has a white suite, bath with over-bath shower, wash basin and WC and a tiled floor. There is a shaver point and constant hot water. The cottage has central heating throughout.

A network of footpaths from the garden gate will take you to the Iron Age site of Castle Hill, 10 minutes walk away, or across the valley to Farnley Tyas and one of the best pubs for lunchtime food. The area is a walker's paradise offering both easy rambles through woods and fields and also long hikes over the Pennine moors.

If you need to work then broadband internet access is available in the cottage.

There is plenty of culture to be found in the area with local museums, a theatre, galleries of nationally and internationally renowned artists and many musical events, including the 10 day Contemporary Music Festival in November.

There are television film locations to visit - Last of the Summer Wine and Where the Heart is are both filmed locally, with Emmerdale and Coronation Street further afield. There are craft shops and mill shops, open markets and flea markets and the largest number of Grade 2 listed buildings outside Bath!

And wherever you go you will be assured of a warm Yorkshire welcome.
