Joseph Sykes, one of the first ever landlords, first offered accommodation here to help refugees fleeing oppression in Russia. They were housed for the night by Joseph, who at the time could only offer clean straw in the stables.
Over 160 years after The Olive Branch's original landlord, Joseph, and we are pleased to say that we are able to offer guests slightly more luxurious accommodation than simple straw and warmth! For visitors to the area, our rooms are available seven nights a week on a bed and breakfast basis, and for those looking to dine with us we have our very popular dinner, bed and breakfast package.
Our cosy and comfortable accommodation at The Olive Branch includes three unique and spacious bedrooms. Decorated in a country-style, with your comfort as paramount, we really can offer you a home-from-home experience. In every room, you will find a King sized bed, flat screen television, power-shower and a bath. The perfect wind-down environment after a day exploring the wealth of outdoor delights Marsden has to offer, or the ideal escape from a hard days work on either side of the Pennines.
Guests are able to come and go from their rooms whenever suits, with no night time restrictions and there is always somebody on call to assist you with your every need. We are in a prime location for local events and conveniently located for the Colne Valley, Huddersfield, Oldham and Manchester.
