About Uppergate Farm’s Child-friendly Cottages

A stunning setting, friendly owners, fabulous pool, animals to visit and truly child friendly cottages - you need to book quickly!

A child friendly farm with gorgeous views across the hills and valleys of Yorkshire. Uppergate offers six glorious secluded cottages just a short drive from the lovely village of Hepworth and a few more to the bustling town of Holmfirth. You can look forward to a really decadent escape with gorgeous cottages, play areas, farm animals to visit and feed and a glorious heated indoor pool for your daily hire!

Uppergate Farm comprises four 4 star cottages, a stunning 5 star Gold Award barn conversion and a glorious traditional farmhouse. Set at the top of a hill in the busy village of Hepworth the farm is quiet and relaxed with stunning views around. Steven and Alison really have gone out of their way to make sure you enjoy a decadently relaxed family holiday with thoughtfully presented cottages, your very own private pool session in the fantastic indoor swimming pool, a hot tub should you rent either The Mistal or Barn and lots of space to wander and walk from your door-step. Then there are the kids' fun bits - visits and feeds for the pigs and calves and hens, egg hunting and grading, a spacious play area near to the animals and a games room for the older ones, ideal should the weather close in - the kids are guaranteed a fabulous time, ergo you!


The four immaculately clean cottages are all graded a minimum of 4 stars with comfy sofas, TV and DVDs, cosy beds and family bathrooms. Kitchens are fully equipped, some with dishwashers, dependent on space! Three sleep six, plus cot and one sleeps 4, plus cot. All are quirky with beams and features and all offer everything you might need for a relaxed break. All have their own private gardens and there is ample parking space. Gas, electricity, bed linen and towels are included in the price, as is a starter basket of logs for fires.

Uppergate Farmhouse

Uppergate Farmhouse is a lovely grand, yet friendly house that may either be rented as a self-catering unit with one, two or three bedrooms or else may be rented as a B & B with all rooms en-suite. All rooms have their own TV and tea and coffee making facilities for early risers. The lovely, cosy lounge with squishy sofas, a fire and books, maps and board games to keep you occupied or distracted is the perfect space to end a busy sight-seeing day! It could be a really good option for grandparents who'd like their own space to join you on holiday who may join you after their very civilised award-winning ‘best breakfast in Britain'! Perhaps swap for at least one night.

Uppergate Barn - 5 Star rating

Uppergate Barn is simply stunning. The description "a 350 year old barn conversion" doesn't do it justice but it's what it is, although to such a high standard that it has been awarded 5 stars and a Gold Award by the English Tourism Board - not an easy achievement! It's gloriously spacious, luxuriously furnished, has huge bathrooms and a superb landing, as well as a sun room, a huge lounge with glorious windows to enjoy the views and a kitchen big enough to live in. It has four bedrooms with a capacity to sleep up to 10 using a couple of additional single beds. There's also a hot tub out on your patio to sip the fizz and celebrate finding such a gem.

To Do

Lots. On site the daily animal feeding ritual and help with egg-grading, play area and a pool session booked for your own private use with use of a sauna and steam room too - vouchers are available should you wish to use either or both regularly. The farm has cows, sheep, pigs, horses and ponies for the kids to visit dependent on the time of year - Steve explained they have approx 200 - 300 hundred free roaming hens so egg-gathering will be a joy!

The 12.5 m pool is glorious. With a fab spacious changing area and huge shower they'll be no rushing to get the kids warm whilst balancing on one foot trying not to drop your clothes in a puddle! You will all have a whale of a time splashing about with it all to your-self. There are easy steps in and a constant depth of 1m - communal times are available too. The sauna and steam room is available should one of you get chance to sneak off and have quiet time.

Out & About

There are walks from the farm including The Kirklees Way which travels along the river valley or through Morton Woods where the kids can navigate streams and footbridges - a do-able family walk, go trekking in the hills, visit the local Hepworth park, hire cycles, go horse-riding or visit the local pub - so local it's just along your lane - it's also award-winning, sells excellent food and welcomes families - worth at least one night off cooking duty!

Personally I'd highly recommend Yorkshire's fantastic Sculpture Park in Wakefield. On a dry day you cannot beat the ‘outdoor gallery', rolling fields offering tons of space where you will happen on stunning sculptures seemingly randomly left there - my girls love it. The Kirklees Light Railway is fab for Thomas fans and enthusiasts of steam engines generally.

Please note that smoking is not permitted anywhere on the farm and pets are not allowed.
