Staying at The Peat Loft, Ponden Hall
The Peat Loft is a self-contained annex at the west end of Ponden Hall, offering all the amenities of a luxurious holiday cottage. Windows on the kitchen side of this 17th-century, converted peat store overlook Ponden Reservoir, while the west end and entrance overlook the Pennine Way, on which Ponden Hall is situated.
Upstairs is a beautiful and spacious open-plan living/kitchen area with underfloor heating throughout, beneath gorgeous undulating pippy oak flooring. Comfortable sofas give access to a high-definition 37-inch TV with full Sky package, and there is free wifi throughout the building.
Walls are beautiful exposed Yorkshire stone, with a high ceiling and oak beams – and watch out for the seven hidden faces of little figures moulded into the stonework.
A dining table with seating for four leads on to the kitchen area, with washer/dryer, electric oven with induction hobs, dishwasher and fridge/freezer – and in the understairs cupboard you’ll find an iron and ironing board. A full range of dining cutlery and crockery, glassware, cloths, pans and utensils is tucked away in the kitchen cupboards.
Downstairs, accessed via the feature ash staircase, are two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The larger of the two bedrooms has a double bed, built-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom with bath. The second bedroom has twin single beds, wardrobe and en suite with shower. All downstairs rooms also have underfloor heating. All bedding and towels are, of course, provided.
The Peat Loft has its own entrance and parking, games, local books on walking and Yorkshire – and we like to welcome visitors with a basic grocery package, including a bottle of wine and, of course, a box of Yorkshire Tea teabags.
