Additional Location Information

Denby Dale is known as the 'Pie Village' The famous Denby Dale Pies are a 220 year old village tradition; usually baked to celebrate national special occasions and events. These are not your normal run-of-the-mill pies – these are monster meat, and sometimes potato, pies that have been registered in the Guinness Book of Records in past years!
(Normal size 'Denby Dale Pies' can be bought in the local shops, however)

One of the things that will strike you in Denby Dale is the amount of locally owed specialist shops. These are in abundance in the village and give it its unique character. From the old-fashioned butcher, to the independent book store, gift shops, craft store, furniture shops, shoe shop, clothes shops, there is sure to be something to please everyone. In addition there are several eateries in the village from traditional tea rooms, a very good Indian Restaurant, Thai Restaurant and traditional Pub Grub too. There's also a Pizza and Chinese Takeaway that are within walking distance. A family-friendly Italian Restaurant and a Mediterranean-style Restaurant are also within 5 minutes drive, and you simply HAVE to visit Dearne Lea Tea Rooms, for the BEST home-made ice-cream EVER!

Denby Dale has its own train station on the Penistone Line which links Sheffield to Huddersfield. The impressive viaduct cuts across the valley

This is a great location to be based in. Here's a taster of just some of the attractions close by: Cannon Hall Open Farm and Adventure Playground, The National Coal Mining Museum, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Holmfirth, heart of 'Summer Wine Country', the National Film & Photography Museum in Bradford, Elsecar Heritage Museum, Pugney's Watersports lake and miniature railway, Sandal Castle, Kirklees Light Railway, & Eureka Children's Museum & the Piece Hall in Halifax, Tolson, and Colne Valley Museums in Huddersfield

Other activities nearby include golf, watersports, tennis & swimming.

You are also in great rambling countryside, with a host of public footpaths and bridleways, through woodland and across fields. We leave lots of information in the cottage about the various footpaths in the area.

If you prefer a more lively destination, you are only 15 minutes from the towns of Huddersfield and Wakefield which have great shopping and places of local interest, and for the bigger city lights, you can head towards Leeds and Sheffield, just 30 minutes away. 50 minutes will take you to the not-to-be-missed historic city of York, or why not visit Haworth of the Bronte Sisters' fame?
