A PUB on the border with Saddleworth is being transformed into a ‘party house’, complete with indoor football pitch.
The Carriage House, which lies on the A62 just over the top of the hills in Marsden, West Yorkshire, has been bought by Holmfirth-based Celebration Cottages.
Re-named Horizon House, it will be a party venue for hen and stag dos as well as families.
Renovation work which will be complete in April will include the creation of a mini indoor five-a-side football pitch, a disco room and bar, a karaoke stage and a ‘huge swim spa’ which will be outdoors.
The indoor pitch is described as an AstroTurf area, ‘perfect for fun activities such as Zorb football, yoga classes and bootcamp, all of which can be arranged as part of your stay.’
In all, there will be eight bedrooms which can accommodate up to 30 people.
On the Celebration Cottages Facebook page, the venue is marketed as a ‘hen and stag party house’ and on the webpage the venue is billed as a ‘luxury hen party setting for large groups’.
Packages start at £185 per person for a two-night stay.
The Carriage House has been empty since owners Bev and Simon Fallone retired after running it for 16 years, putting it on the market with an asking price of £749,950.
Faye Ackroyd, managing director of Celebration Cottages, said: “It’s going to be a big holiday let with a mini indoor sports field – great for large family bookings in summer.
“Kids will love it.”
