Welcome to The Cottage, The Cross, Silkstone, South Yorkshire, a stone built, detached self-catering cottage nestled within the Pennines and only a short distance from the Waggon Way, Husker pit, Pot House Hamlet, and the beautiful Trans Pennine Trail.

This historic Old Tommy Shop, now known as The Cottage, has a story with roots in South Yorkshire’s mining heritage. It was the place where wages were paid to miners and workmen. The men were then expected to lay out a part of their money for the good of the shop. Tommy means bread or a penny roll, or the food taken by a workman in his handkerchief; it also means goods in lieu of money.

The Cottage has previously been used as a family home and a doctor’s surgery but has now been lovingly refurbished by its local owner into a cosy, eclectic holiday cottage for families, friends, walkers, dog walkers, and cyclists. And people who are looking to explore and enjoy a Yorkshire leisure break with local food and beer, in the surroundings of a picturesque countryside village.

This was a new location for me for a short break and really opened my eyes to this area of Yorkshire.

The cottage is ideally situated for accessing a wide variety of places. We enjoyed retail therapy at Meadowhall, local walks around Silkstone and a day out in the Peak District after a short drive around the outskirts of Sheffield.

The cottage was comfortable and had everything you could want or need and was quiet and cosy.

Will be booking again to explore further.

Silkstone is a wonderful place to stay and it quite beautiful, there is a thriving village mentality with a fantastic range of amenities such as The Bells restaurant, the Red Lion Pub, Pot House Hamlet with its range of retail and food outlets such as Riley’s coffee shop and bistro.  Body Revive is another outlet for all your spa treatment needs.  The Cottage and Silkstone village is a place for you to relax, enjoy the outdoors and then eat and drink scrumptious food in the cottage or out .

The gate at the front of the cottage leads you into the enclosed patio, where you will hear the sound of the stream running past the front window.  Open the front door into the tiled hall way, which leads you down 2 steps into the sitting room with a wood burner and exposed beams, separate dining and utility room plus a fitted country kitchen, which looks out onto the Silkstone woods.

The stone staircase leads you up to the first floor where you will find 3 bedrooms and a luxurious shower room.  Outside, is an enclosed tiled patio with outdoor furniture, fire pit and the sounds of the flowing stream and woodland birds and animals. Plus, the occasional shout of “ We won” from the cricket and football pitches.  “ This is village life at its  best “
