‘So glad we have returned here to this special place. Thank you we have all loved it.’ (Tim and Gill, London, January 2017)
‘Elmet Farmhouse has the most perfect location with every amenity you could wish for. Comfort, style, presentation and cleanliness is second to none. You have provided the perfect Yorkshire experience for my Canadian family and allowed me to relive my youth! I’m sat here writing in your visitors’ book looking out of the historic windows at the most amazing view of my childhood stomping ground. Congratulations for providing such a high standard and thanks for a great Christmas!’ (Chris, London, December 2016)
A few recent rave reviews for Elmet
on December 20, 2016
"Simply a stunning, beautiful, immaculately presented property with a most accommodating and thoughtful host - we traveled through Europe for 5 weeks and Elmet was easily and comprehensively the best place we stayed. The home has charm and character in spades but is also equipped to a very high standard with everything thought of and more - we could have stayed much, much longer and never been bored. Our family of 5 had more than enough room and 6 would fit just as easily - the property is easy to access from Hebden Bridge and has wonderful views. Highly recommended!"

"Total pleasure to stay here; such attention to detail that we were warm, intrigued, equipped, comfortable and well-informed about things to do. We arrived to a tray of scones and locally-made jam and Lesley popped round to make sure we were happy. It's not often you stay in a house whose design has been curated by an expert in the field of mid 20th-century decor, and it really showed. She is also aware of what is important to people staying away from home, and provided accordingly. Our children absolutely loved the bagatelle! Wet and windy adventures outside, lovely and cosy inside. Bravo!"
Bruno - Oxford, NOVEMBER 2016
"The setting and views are exceptional but Lesley's attention to detail is what really makes this place stand out. Lesley has been meticulous in designing a cosy abode, but is also meticulous in ensuring every whim is catered for and every need met. A warm welcome with scones and homemade jam was delightful, as well as the thoughtfulness to leave out the relevant books and guides pertaining to our particular interests. Always on hand to help, but never intrusive. Would highly recommend. "
Sophie - London, AUGUST 2016
"A wonderful place to stay. The views are magnificent, so much so that I found myself simply staring across the valley to Stoodley Pike and Heptonstall church on numerous occasions. The cottage is fantastically well equipped, kitchen wise and the interior decoration and furnishing is a joy. Lesley lives next door, is not intrusive but couldn't be more welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed walking, the numerous paths around Hardcastle Crags are worthy of mention. I'd recommend wholeheartedly."
Alastair, Buckinghamshire, JULY 2016
"What a lovely cottage: spacious, beautifully furnished, comfortable beds, gorgeous views and great hiking trails all around. Lesley even welcomed us with delicious homemade scones! I would definitely return to Elmet Farmhouse."
Kasia - London, MAY 2016
"Elmet Farmhouse is exceptional. I felt privileged to bask in the immaculate comfort and cosy, mid-century chic of this beautifully restored, appointed and designed farmhouse. Lesley was warmly welcoming and helpful, pointing us toward walks in the stunning surrounding countryside and patiently answering all our questions. Keen readers will appreciate the literary connections of the area (including the farmhouse drive -- be sure to ask) and the farmhouse's small, well-chosen collection of relevant books, printed and 'spoken'. All that, and freshly baked scones and homemade jams, too. Grateful."
Sheila - London, MAY 2016
"A beautiful farmhouse, beautifully restored, extremely comfortable & with fantastic views. Lesley couldn't be more helpful, giving lifts, advising on walks, and what a fantastic collection of local information. And her home made scones are to die for! Much more to explore in this wonderful area, and it's a great house to come back to after a day's walking. "

How wonderful to arrive at Elmet Farmhouse after a scenic drive the moors and step into warmth, welcome and a visual feast in this beautiful house. A perfect location for a December break.
