About Fiona Byrd

We moved from London to Yorkshire in 2006 and bought the property in 2008. It ticked all the boxes: accessibility, space and peaceful surroundings and is the perfect antidote to our busy working lives. We live in the adjacent Dower House with our two labradors. Jonny and Fiona.

Why Fiona Byrd chose Dewsbury

The property has all the benefits of being in a rural and peaceful location, and yet is easily accessible via excellent transport links (car, rail and air).

What makes this Cottage unique

The property is particularly well situated to visit the new Hepworth Wakefield museum which recently opened in 2011 to much critical acclaim, as well as the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. It is an excellent base from which there are lots of walks and cycle routes nearby, as well as places of interest/ activities to enjoy locally and further afield.

                                                    A splendid stay in a perfect cottage

                                                    Phil E.

                                                    This is the second time we have stayed at the cottage and we enjoyed it even more this time! With just the two of us and one doggy, it is ideal and suits our purposes perfectly. It's well equipped, comfortable and very cosy and Johnny and Fiona (and mum) are excellent hosts supplying extra bits and pieces we asked for.

                                                    We'd love to stay again next November but booking is not operational yet. Thanks for a wonderful stay. Fiona I'd be grateful if you'd contact me re one or two things. I no longer have an email address or phone number for you

                                                    Phil Ellis

                                                    a beautiful fully equipped hideaway

                                                    richard holcombe h.weston super mare UK

                                                    A stunning hide away from all the hustle and bustle but within 10 minutes of civilisation.

                                                    we had no problem finding it ,just be wary its down a rather narrow track at the end of a road,ok in summer but could be a little tricky in winter if youre not in a 4x4.

                                                    plenty of walks to try immediatley from your front door.

                                                    A fantastic fully equipped annex with stunning views and everything you could want .

                                                    luxurious comfort in easy reach of Wakefield ,Barnsley ,Sheffield and Leeds , 1 minutes drive from the motorway junction.

                                                    What you have to realise is living quarters are at ground level and bedrooms and bathrooms are below via a rather steep staircase, so if you have pets or children you have to take this into consideration.We had to move a toybox to create a barrier prevent the rather old german shepherd trying to join us down stairs .( pets arent allowed downstairs).

                                                    Fiona was brilliant , excellent communication and information inside,and even whem the dog scratched the inside of the room door door in a panic when we went out it wasnt a problem.( if there are any incidents theres ionformation how to deal with it without it spoiling your holiday)

                                                    I would fully recomend the place for a relaxing stay.

                                                    Beautiful cottage, superb views..well equipped and homely.

                                                    Brian B.

                                                    Our fifth visit to this beautiful cottage. Comfortable, roomy and so well equipped. Wonderful views from lounge and kitchen diner. The owners are so welcoming and helpful.delightful gardens to sit in...even have a BBQ.

                                                    Would recommend 100% and hope to return on November.

                                                    Lovely peaceful location

                                                    Kathryn S.

                                                    This was our second stay at the cottage and we had a nice relaxing stay here. The cottage is wonderful and has everything you could need and the location is quiet and peaceful with nice walks in the surrounding area. I'm sure we will be back again next year!

                                                    A cut above


                                                    We (family of 4 plus 2 dogs) had the fortune to stay at this cottage for 9 weeks whilst we waited for a house sale to complete.

                                                    Incredible cottage, wonderful owners and a fantastic rural location. This cottage is not your typical holiday cottage, it is a real home superbly fitted out with exquisite decor. The quality of the towels, bedding, and adds on such as toiletries and welcome pack was fantastic. Super garden and grounds - great for the dogs with some great circular walks.

                                                    Whilst we are local and did not use the cottage for a holiday, I would recommend it to anyone who wants to visit the area - a fantastic base, peace and quiet with close proximity to village and main towns.

                                                    You will not be disappointed if you book a break at GrangeMoor cottage.

                                                    Lovely cottage retreat


                                                    Me and a friend satyed here as a base for exploring Yorkshire for a couple of days. We chose the cottage because of how close it is to the Sculpture Park (we had to be there at 5:30am one morning to watch the sunrise!).

                                                    We spent 3 nights here and found the cottage to be exceptional; very well fitted with modern applianes, all looked new, with a relaxing living room with wood burning stove, and a beautiful view over fields, horses and forest. The owner was very accomodating and easy to get in contact with - we couldn't have asked for a more comfortable and ideal place to stay!

                                                    Some people might find this cottage to be a little "out of the way", but this that is what we wanted!
