Underbank Hall Cottage

Underbank Hall Cottage is a lovingly preserved Yorkshire holiday cottage for two. Spread across two floors, this quaint rural retreat boasts a traditional country decor with modern touches. It overlooks a landscaped garden and the beautiful greenery beyond its stone walls.

Inside, the property boasts a cosy, open-plan living space, quaintly decorated with a wood burner replica fire, a modern fitted kitchen suite with electric appliances and a dining area, providing all you need in one space.

Upstairs is the grand, spacious master bedroom, with a king-sized bed, mounted wall TV, an armchair and all wooden furniture, leading into an en suite bathroom with a bath and shower.

Outside Underbank Hall Cottage lies the magic of the Peak District and Yorkshire Pennines on your doorstep. Based in Stocksbridge, you are in the ideal spot to venture into the Peak District on one of its many walking trails, from the Don Valley to the Langsett Dam. Alternatively, a northerly direction will take you into the ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ country around Holmfirth.

In a secluded rural location, it may be, but the centre of Stocksbridge is only a mile away, home to many local eateries and pubs, or you can easily make your way into the City of Sheffield, a popular Northern destination steeped in history and culture. With many parks, museums, galleries and theatres on offer, there’s plenty for two to explore in a city famed for the arts.




A week to re charge the batteries

A fantastic relaxing week spent in a lovely cottage that was well decorated and well equiped for your every day needs. On arrival we was shocked to find the cottage was next door to the main house, but this in no way took away our privacy. The owners were so helpfull with local knowledge. The area there is so unspoilt with many beautiful walks and quiant pubs.

Perfect cottage, perfect situation

owners very helpful and told me all about the history of the hall, very interesting. Cottage was very high standard and exceptionally comfortable. I've never slept in a better bed!!! Ideal for doggie people - lovely walks from doorstep and only a few mins drive to a lovely reservoir walk. Worth taking a trip to Ladybower and Castleton too. Beautful views from patio area. Although cottage is right next to hall this was not a problem at all. All windows overlook gardens and views.

Beautiful location, excellent bed!

We had a wonderful week in this amazing cottage. Since previous reviews mentioned the cottage was right next to the hall, I did not expect the location to be this perfect. We were speechless when we entered the driveway, and the interiours did NOT dissappoint us. Well equipped kitchen, indeed best bed ever, perfect shower and those views...
Highly recommended!


My ideal holiday cottage.

Perfect. A beautiful and very well appointed cottage. Underbank Hall Cottage was a the perfect base for my week long holiday. Clean, tidy, and everything I could have needed was on hand. A very welcome "welcome tray" was waiting on my arrival.

The added bonus was that I could take the dog as well. I really look forward to another stay during 2014.

Best Holiday Cottage I've Stayed At in Over 20 Years

This cottage was perfect, clean, tidy, had everything you needed, bed so comfortable and the homemade scones were to die for. Just me and the dog, a little noise from the garden (distant traffic) but once in the house so peaceful. Would recommend this cottage to all my friends and family and if I was ever in the area again would want to stay here.


Very relaxing break, well equiped cottage

The cottage was ideally placed for visiting both cities and beautiful countryside. Just a few minutes drive from civilization, but felt you were out in the country. The cottage was well equipped and we had a totally relaxing holiday.


Exceptional holiday cottage

This cottage has everything you could wish for, location, easy access, and above all extremely friendly owners, who allow you to stroll their extensive beautiful garden.Everywhere in the peak district area within range.


lovely stay

This cottage was lovely, just right for the village of Stocksbridge visiting my family in this area

Excellent holiday cottage

I have just returned from a wonderful stay at Underbank Cottage. The cottage is situated in the beautiful grounds of Underbank Hall, which features a walled garden and woodland along with beautifully tended lawns and flowerbeds. The cottage is delightfully furnished and well equipped with everything you may need during your stay. Car parking is just a few yards away. The owners had even provided scones and jam and a vase of sweet peas for our arrival. The area is lovely with lots of stunning views and lots of reservoirs and countryside nearby providing scenic walks. I absolutely loved this cottage and will definitely be returning.


Relaxation Paradise

My girlfriend and I needed a break from the London area and so booked a week at Underbank Hall Cottage from a Friday to a Friday. We drove up on the Friday night and only arrived at about midnight to find a beautiful stone cottage wonderfully appointed. There were fresh scones with butter and home-made jam and a tea tray laid out for us. We forwent those and cracked open a bottle of wine, turned on the electric 'wood-burning' stove and allowed the peacefulness to wash over us.

The following day, after a night spent in a very comfortable bed, we got to explore the cottage. It has everything that one could want: fitted kitchen with fridge (and small freezer shelf), dishwasher, quality matching crockery, glasses and flatware, microwave, gas cooker, washer/dryer combo. All of this in a lovely downstairs room. Upstairs is a huge bedroom with armoire with real hangers and a fantastic bathroom with deep tub and a huge separate shower unit with great pressure.

We met the owner who said we were younger than most of her guests (we are mid 40s) and she invited us to wander the grounds which are manicured and beautiful. The cottage is next to the main house but you wouldn't know it and we felt completely alone and peaceful.

We really couldn't be happier with our choice.

We visited Stocksbridge once and found it a bit dismal but Penistone is about 3 miles in the other direction and is a delightful village with a lovely bistro (with great vegetarian options) and a couple of nice pubs. Ye Olde Mustard Pot is also recommended.

There was nothing not to like about this place. Very highly recommended.


2nd Visit

We stayed here a few years ago in the winter and we were very comfortable. Our second stay in spring was just as good as the first. Outside was a riot of spring colour and was beautiful, plenty of pots and troughs and borders packed with plants. The scones, jam etc was a nice touch and we enjoyed them after a long journey. Though the cottage is small it has everything you need and is a great base to stay. It has comfortable furnishings and a nice big bed and shower cubicle. We parked the car for 3 days and walked the local area as there are many nearby which we managed despite the weather. The Stockbridge walking website has lots of walks that are printable with very good directions. Our only downside this time was the the internet was very erratic and not available a lot of the time but as we were there only 3 days it was not a major problem but we did report it before we left.

Who would go to Barnsley for a holiday? With accommodation like this, anyone might. The cottage was immaculate and comfortable, and the location a hidden gem. With a little internet research you can find lots of good walking in the neighborhood, through fields and woodland to open moor. In less than an hour's drive you can be in pretty much any tourist destination in the northern end of the Peak District, from Bakewell to Edale. This means you can have a national park vacation at a fraction of the cost of renting inside the Park. The cottage was ideal for us to attend a nearby wedding and make family visits in South Yorkshire as well as providing a cozy base for a country vacation.


We particularly enjoyed the peacefulness of the location and how effective it was for creating a restful break. Attention to detail and special touches provided by the owners e.g. fresh cut flowers in vase on arrival and fresh raspberries from the garden made an impact and were highly appreciated.

Mrs Canavan

Everything! The cottage, location, amazing scenery within a few miles from the cottage. Fantastic walks, our dog loved it there!

Mrs Bassillious

The cleanliness of the cottage, location and cosiness was fantastic. The owners are friendly and welcoming and they let us use the private wood for our dogs. It was just perfect and we look forward to going again.

Ms Tomlinson

The cottage is a beautiful stone building that abuts the owners' residence. We met the owners on arrival and bumped into them a few days into our week long stay, so privacy wasn't an issue. The cottage more than met our expectations. It was very clean, well appointed and warm. Views were beautiful from all of the windows. TV and wifi reception were excellent. We were unable to enjoy the local walks due to family reasons but from what we could see they would be more than enough reason to come to Underbank. Lovely, we'll be back - from Australia!

Mr Eastop

Underbank Hall is exactly as represented. A perfectly equipped, peaceful holiday cottage that is very well maintained, clean and in a pretty garden setting. Owners might live next door but they are utterly unobtrusive. The price was very reasonable. Great for a romantic getaway with good heating, comfortable bed and furnishings.

This really is a prime property and we will undoubtedly be back.
