Stocksbridge is a town on the north-east edge of the lovely Peak District, and offers a variety of places to eat and shop, as well as a host of footpaths and bridleways to explore. Afternoon strolls can be enjoyed beside the Langsett, Broomhead and Moorhall dams, and Holmfirth, featured in Last of the Summer Wine, is close by. The longer walks and good mountain biking of the National Park are a short drive away, and visitors may even take advantage of the proximity of the M1 to venture as far afield as Sheffield, Leeds or York.

The ultimate in "year-round" appeal, the Peak District offers countryside, picturesque villages and magnificent scenery. It touches upon six counties and encloses 555 square miles of open moorland, flowing rivers, and wooded dales.

Reviews of Underbank Hall Cottage

"I worked for British Steel down the fox valley in the 1970s so this was a bit of a nostalgia holiday. The cottage is in a lovely position with uninterrupted views overlooking the Langsett moors and Underbank reservoir . The lounge, bedroom and bathroom are all of a good size with 32" TVs in both the lounge and bedroom. The en suite bathroom has large shower cubicle plus good size bath and the water pressure is good and hot for showers and baths. Outside there is a pleasant seating area amidst a profusion of colourful plants with lovely views over the gardens and distant hills. Overall this is a we'll catered for cottage with everything a couple would need for a good holiday. The internet connection is a little hit and miss but we have yet to find a cottage in a rural area with good coverage. Terry, Meg and Willow ( the Welsh Springer). Formally of Barnsley now in retirement near Filey."

"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 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."

"We couldn't have been happier with our week at Underbank Hall Cottage. It has been finished to the highest standards and comes with everything you might need. The kitchen and bathroom are finished extremely well. The bathroom has a very deep soaker tub and a large separate shower unit with excellent water pressure. This really is a prime property and we will undoubtedly be back. "

"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."
