About Cruck Cottage

Cruck Cottage is a charming 17th century cottage on Ashes Farm near Castle Hill, Almondbury.  The cottage is surrounded by fields and enjoys magnificent views of the Huddersfield area and tributary valleys.  Period features include a stunning cruck frame and rafters dating from the 17th century.  A former outbuilding on a dairy farm, Cruck Cottage today is the perfect blend of traditional style and modern comforts.  The property sleeps four guests and is comfortably furnished with beamed ceilings and a well equipped kitchen catering for all your self-catering needs.

Surrounded by beautiful countryside, Cruck Cottage is ideally situated for exploring the area.  A network of footpaths from the garden gate will take you in 10 minutes to the Iron Age site on the summit of Castle Hill to enjoy wonderful views across Huddersfield and the tributary valleys, or on easy rambles through woods and fields or longer hikes over the Pennine moors.
