Comfortable, double bedroom with private bathroom. A delicious continental breakfast is included. The house is conveniently situated less than a mile from J23 of the M62, allowing access to the joys of beautiful Yorkshire and beyond. Quiet location with parking. An art-full house and a warm welcome.

This is a beautiful house (she declares, shamelessly) built in the 1860s, when the village of Longwood grew up. It is constructed of faced stone and has a Grade II listing. The house is set back from the road (Longwood Gate) and elevated, so that from the upstairs rooms there is a good view across the valley to the village of Golcar and beyond to the Pennine hills.

Access at the front of the house is up two sets of stone steps and a small incline. There is a hand rail alongside the steps but no rail support going up the incline, which is a distance of about 20 feet. Access at the back of the house is down two sets of stone steps and along a passageway. PLEASE NOTE: Any prospective guest(s) finding steps or a short climb difficult to manage, may prefer to find a less elevated location!

The building was probably originally built as one residence, consistent with the fact that there were stables at the back (now converted), on the sett, cobbled road known as Cow Gate. On the census, however, it has always been recorded as two residences. At some point, in the first half of the 20th century, the property was divided into three and in 2001 refigured into two dwellings

The guest room is modest in size but comfortable and the large, south facing window and high ceiling create a lightness and airiness, together with a pleasing sense of proportion. The house has always had positive vibrations. Those who stay comment on the relaxing atmosphere and how easy it is to have a good night's sleep! The house is full of artwork that hopefully guests will enjoy - or at least find diverting!

Longwood is a small village but has a developed sense of community. The name derives from Old English, "Lang wudu", meaning "The Long Wood". The village has been built along the side of a hill. Behind the house, at the hill summit, is Nab Tower, built in 1861 by unemployed woollen mill workers. It was restored by Kirklees MBC in 2008 and it's possible to make the short climb to the top for a panoramic view. Longwood was built up around the woollen industry and its mills, most of which have now been demolished or converted into apartments.

PLEASE NOTE that Longwood has no restaurants. There are two good pubs but neither, at the time of writing, provides food. There is an Italian takeaway, Luigi's, within a short walking distance of the house (at 227 Longwood Gate) which is open every evening, from 4pm until late. It is possible to order food from there by phone and have it delivered. There is also a newsagent and small convenience store, a 5 minute walk in the other direction.

There is a recommended restaurant, Parky's Bistro and several takeaways in Milnsbridge, which is approximately 15 minutes away on foot. Takeaway menus are in the drawer in the guest room.

Guests can enjoy a quiet, 'country' walk by exiting the house on Cow Gate and walking up to Bull Green Road and beyond that to open common land (known as 'the tops') and farmland divided by stone walls and tracks.

As previously stated, the village has two welcoming pubs, The Slip Inn and the Dusty Miller, both only a short walk away. The Mechanics Institute, further along Longwood Gate, was constructed in 1858 and recently refurbished.

There is also a walk through the village and up to the reservoirs (Longwood has three) to woodland and across the Longwood Golf Course.

I am an early retired lawyer who worked in the public sector. Although I would describe myself as "a little shy" (well, isn't everyone?) I love having guests and meeting new people. I like to talk and discover things. I've always been a treasure hunter, which explains some of the art in the house. Of course, every picture tells a story but I'll try not to burden you with every, single one! I like writing - poetry mostly - and reading. I enjoy mounting prints and other artwork using found, vintage frames. I love films (there are quite a few of my favourites, on lobby cards, hanging in the hallway but you'll have to visit to find out what they are). I love music - Joni Mitchell being my all time favourite. I am too a dedicated follower of coffee - oh yes - and cake. I'll take as my quote, Rilke, which was itself quoted in the movie 'Kissing Jessica Stein': "Only someone who is ready for everything, who excludes nothing, not even the most enigmatical, will live the relation to another as something alive."

По време на престоя ви

I will be around three weekdays out of five until late afternoon. I will be working on the computer, or framing. I am happy to interact as much or as little as a guest wants and needs. Guests will have a key and alarm fob so they can come and go as they wish. I want guests to properly feel at home. I will always be happy to advise or help in any way I can. I have put together a short list of places to eat, in and around Huddersfield, a copy of which will be in the guest room.
