A beautiful cottage ideally placed. Incredibly well equipped and modernised with great taste. A real ” home from home” experience.
We have had a wonderful time staying in your lovely cottage. We found everything we needed which enhanced our stay. The bed was comfortable and the shower was a pleasure to use.
We had a great stay in your cottage whilst visiting family in Halifax. A perfect getaway.
Had a lovely “holiday” in the cottage whilst some major work was taking place on our house. Found some new walks and a new pub.
Just perfect. Once I walked through the front door, I was totally at home.
Thank you for an amazing stay. Jane has been so efficient, welcoming and helpful that we cannot wait to come back. Dyer’s Cottage is beautiful.
Dyer’s Cottage is exquisite.
When I walked into your cottage the first thing I said was “I’m home” and that is exactly what it has been for me. My safe place to rest after a long day of travel and exploring, my quiet place to read, journal and pray.
A wonderful, luxurious property in an historic part of Halifax. The property has undergone a miracle transformation.

It was a great privilage to enjoy the view from bed, which I loved, and all the amenities of this beautiful cottage. Thank You. JO USA May 2019
It sits below Wainhouse Tower which means you will never be lost trying to find one’s way home. Cozy and private, the dark stone exterior opens into a modern and well lit interior. The main bed is a dream machine, big and inviting, warm and delightful. BL USA May 2019
What a lovely, well equipped cottage. Loved it. PT UK June 2019
It is as good as it looks! The location has a feeling of a village in the countryside although it is just a few minutes away from the city centre. Great vacation! MA Greece July 2019

Our short stay at Dyer’s Cottage has been very comfortable and cosy. The family history is fascinating- what would they think of their house now we wonder? It was a real joy to see all the bluebells out in the garden and to sit outside with our coffees. Our thanks to Jane and her team.
