About Mr A Harrison

Gillian and I converted Midhope Lodge ourselves from farm buildings. It took us 7 years working full time and without any help other than a plasterer. Because we worked on the barn ourselves we had time to get to know the buildings and change our plans as we went along making this a fabulous building and grounds. Midhope Lodge is split into 2, we live in one half and the other half, which is totally separate, is rented out for holiday accommodation.

Text 07585 509302 or email Midhope-lodge@ for prices/ availability.

Why Mr A Harrison chose South Yorkshire

Midhopestones is a small village on the edge of the Peak Park with the river Porter running through. During the summer there is well dressing at the village well. Our only pub is call "ye Olde Mustard Pot" and has a restaurant.

The village is almost surrounded by moors and reservoirs with marked paths and trails for walking and cycling. It's just a short drive to Sheffield centre and other nearby places to visit including National mining museum (take a trip underground - free), Holmfirth (famous for the TV Series "Last of the Summer Wine"), Ladybower and Derwent Dams (WW2 Dambusters), Magna (Huge Steel works museum), Kelham Island Musem just to mention a few.

What makes this barn unique

Midhope Lodge is within a small holding often with a few sheep, pigs and Chickens wandering freely. Eggs Available most times. We have a secluded sun deck with 3 sun beds and NEW THIS YEAR WE HAVE A WOOD FIRED PIZZA OVEN.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great place, friendly host, really easy to get to, close to both civilasation and the hills. an ideal starting point for many a country walk and comfortable enough to just sit and while awy the hours should you want to. Spotlessly clean and beautifully presented. can't recoomend enough to people. Already told all my friends!

I was welcomed by the friendly owners upon arrival and they were very amenable as it was my husbands surprise 40th birthday weekend. We were welcomed with a bottle of bubbly and cakes which was lovely. The cottage was of an excellent high standard and everything worked fully and a lot of items were provided such as hand soap, cleaner, logs, towels, bedding etc which was great. Nearby was a reservoir with a great walk around it. It was tipping down with rain but we had a great time and then came back to a log fire which was very cosy. There was plenty of parking which was good as we had a few friends and family coming and going over the weekend. The sheep was great

Well equipped house on the edge of the Peaks

  • 4 of 5

Lovely bedrooms and living areas and even managed to sit out on the deck. The pizza oven outside, very kindly lit by Mr Harrison, was great fun! There was certainly plenty of room for 6 of us.

The local pub, 5 minutes walk away, is supposed to be excellent but it was closed due to an electrical fault!

Beautiful house in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

An amazing house in a great location with beautiful scenery. We had a lovely time and Andrew was very accommodating. The only thing which could have made it better would be having the kitchen and bathroom stocked with some basics like oil, sugar, salt, pepper, hand wash etc. We will definitely consider staying here again!

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfectly fine. No complaints and had a most enjoyable weekend. Didn't need to go and get anything, apart from food and drink, as everything was in the barn. Lovely decking outside and lovely view.

our stay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, lots of space and beautifully done out. Everything we required and super friendly owners. We were able to stay the days we needed and weren't forced into the usual Saturday to Saturday routine. Will definitely be going back next year.
