About Unsliven Bridge Barn

Unsliven Bridge Barn is in a gorgeous location a mile from the centre of Stocksbridge's shops and within easy reach of Ye Olde Mustard Pot and Langsett Wagon and Horses pubs. The Peak District National Park is a stone's throw away, and there are beautiful walks and bike rides from the door. The former barn has been lovingly restored and upgraded to provide a high standard of accommodation for up to seven people in three bedrooms, with beautiful views over meadows, woodland and the river. It's ideal for families and friends.

Stocksbridge is a pretty town with a welcoming community and excellent amenities that include schools, shops, pubs and restaurants, a leisure centre and a golf course. The region is renowned for its beautiful footpaths including the three-mile loop around Underbank Reservoir which starts just a few hundred yards from the barn and is mostly level. It's possible to extend that walk along the Barnsley Boundary Walk which goes to Llangsett Reservoir through woodland and moorland. The natural landscape and wealth of birds and wildlife make this a lovely experience in every season. The Trans Pennine Trail passes through Penistone, just a few miles from Unsliven Bridge, while other routes lead to places such as Whitwell Moor, Wind Hill, and past the Isle of Skye Quarry and the Tin Mill Ponds. With the Peak District National Park within walking and cycling distance, as well as local stables offering guided horse riding, it's easy for everyone to explore to their heart's content.

Penistone is a favourite place with walkers and cyclists traversing the long-distance Trans Pennine Trail. It features in the Domesday Book, so there have been people living there for at least a thousand years, although the regular market is a somewhat recent arrival, having only started in 1699! The twice-weekly market runs every Thursday and Saturday in the Oak Barn, with Thursday's market being especially good for buying fresh local meats, cheeses, fruits, vegetables, cakes - everything you will need for a delicious meal. Another place to visit is the pretty town of Holmfirth, used as a filming location for "Last of the Summer Wine". Both Penistone and Holmfirth have heritage cinemas dating from 1914 and 1913 respectively, so check out the programme of events to see what's on during your stay.

Accommodation Comprises:

The Barn is a former farm building revived and restored to provide a high standard of accommodation over two levels.


  • Open-plan living room and kitchen/diner with thick stone wall and multi-aspect windows that frame views of the woodland and river as if they were art. Hardwood floors are a stylish and practical feature that complements the oak beams, made even better with underfloor heating. The sitting area has two three-seater sofas, a big coffee table and a TV with Freeview channels.
  • Kitchen/diner where the farmhouse charm is brought up to date with high-quality modern appliances that include two integrated ovens for ease of cooking meals for hungry families. The dining table easily seats seven people so everyone can eat together. In summer, open the back door and enjoy the relaxing sound of the flowing river.


  • Stairs lead from the living room to the first floor where there are three beautifully appointed bedrooms and a bathroom.
  • Family/triple room with a kingsized bed that can be separated into two single beds, and a further single bed. There is built-in storage and an ensuite with a shower, WC and handbasin.
  • Second double room with a kingsized bed that can be separated into two single beds - please let the owner know your preferred layout when booking.
  • Third double room with a kingsized bed (or two singles), built-in storage, and a private balcony with chairs to sit and look at the trees and the river.
  • Designer bathroom with a bath, walk-in rainfall shower, heated towel rail, WC and a handbasin.

Outside: A secure garden at the rear has a patio area with seating and a barbecue. Nearby is a meadow where guests can picnic and play beside the river. There is off-street parking for several cars.

Additional Information: All utilities, bed linen and bath towels are provided. Well behaved dogs are welcome through prior arrangement. Short breaks may be possible, depending on availability. Smoking is not permitted. No hen or stag parties.
