Local Attractions

Local attractions

Marsh Royd Barn is ideally situated to many of the main natural scenic attractions, powerful and sweeping landscapes and renowned towns and villages of West Yorkshire filled with music, arts and crafts, independent shops, local produce and markets, and numerous exciting events.

With its swathes of green farmlands scattered with sheep and dry stone walls that line the landscape for miles and miles, impressive mills, canals and weavers cottages in the nearby surrounding areas, Huddersfield’s rich heritage includes the textile industry, award-winning Victorian architecture and remnants of the Iron Age, as well as Roman and Saxon settlements at Castle Hill.

For visitors to the area, you can enjoy many short and accessible trips from our central location – rambling in the wild open moors of Marsden Moor Estate, trailing in the nearby Peak District National Park, cycling along the Huddersfield Broad and Narrow Canals stretching into the Colne Valley and through the longest tunnel in England, walking around the picturesque cobbled alleys of popular Holmfirth in the land of ‘The Last of the Summer Wine’ – so much to enjoy.

All year round there is something to delight in and explore – from crisp winter days, big blue summer skies, yellow patches of rapeseed fields in spring, annual events such as the well-known Festival of Light, Jazz and Folk Festivals, to name a few – we have highlighted just a brief overview selection of these wonderful destinations in the area and there are so many more hidden gems to discover.
