About Malcolm & Angela Bailey
Brook Hill Cottage is true, family business. We clubbed together with our now grown up children to buy the property in 2011 when the previous owner moved away to be closer to his family. We are both retired teachers and live in the hamlet, managing the property and bookings on a day-to-day basis. Our children, Sarah and Matthew, look after the marketing and finances. They both live and work in London, but love trips back up north to enjoy the fresh air, spectacular views and great local food and days out.
Why Malcolm & Angela Bailey chose Barnsley District
Angela grew up in the area and we have a close affiliations with the village, having spent our holidays and weekends away there since we were married. Brook Hill Cottage came up for sale a few years ago, after the then owner, who had been in the house since 1954, sadly lost his wife and decided to move closer to his son. At that time, house needed complete modernisation. We thought that, if we bought it, we could make sure that this was done in a way that way in-keeping with the character of the village. For the time being, we have decided to run it as a holiday let, so other people come and enjoy this wonderful part of the world that we all love. We have now retired to the village and have overseen the renovation of the house. We look after the property a day-to-day basis and will always try to provide you with a warm welcome and tour of the house when you arrive.
What makes this Cottage unique
The universal appeal of our cottage is its quiet location in a rural hamlet, with great views over green fields and plentiful farm and wildlife. We have had rabbits and hares in the garden, owls in the woods, a flock a sparrows that visit the bird feeders throughout the day, and regular spottings of lapwings, curlews, kestrels and twite. There are also some very fluffy chickens that occasionally pop over the wall from the house down the road for a peck around the garden. As a family of keen cyclists and hikers, our initial intention was to create a holiday let that had great facilities for outdoor activities (laundry, drying area, hose down area and secure storage in the garage), but would offer a high quality, comfortable, real home from home in which you could get cosy and warm at the end of a day outside. But even if you are not into your sports, there is plenty to recommend Brook Hill Cottage for your stay, with original stone work walls, wood burner, comfy sofas, beds and bedding, underfloor heating in the bathrooms and dining area, views out over the fields.
