The property

This beautiful detached stone barn conversion, dating back to 1817 is situated on a non-working farm, in the small village of Holmbridge, near Holmfirth.

Boasting superb views of the Holme Valley, this wonderful building has been lovingly converted to offer contemporary accommodation.

Step in through the stable door to find the open plan living area, which is flooded with natural light from the full height windows that look out across the valley.

The wooden floors and bare brick combined with retro furniture could lead you to believe the previous occupier was rather more bohemian than bovine.

The theme continues through to the spacious and well-lit double bedroom and then into the luxury en-suite shower room with its large shower cubicle and modern stone tiles.

In the summer you can sit in the sun and look to the hills, or on colder nights stretch out on the designer sofa in front of the flickering gas stove.

Aside from a cobbled courtyard and small patio, guests have access to the open countryside to the rear with lots of paths and walking routes up into the imposing countryside and moorland.

There are pubs, restaurants and shops very close by, and there’s even a micro-brewery and a vineyard within walking distance.

This superb cottage is an excellent base for a couple on a romantic getaway, those on a cycling tour, music lovers, foodies and walkers.

About the location

HOLMBRIDGE

Holmfirth 1.5 miles, Huddersfield 8 miles.

The small village of Holmbridge is situated just 1.5 miles from the traditional Pennine market town of Holmfirth, within the beautiful Holme Valley. The village has two pubs, a cricket club, a convenience store, a church and its own vineyard which offers tours, tasting and great food. In 2014 the Tour de France passed through the village and the challenging climb of Holme Moss is nearby. Close by, the town of Holmfirth has old stone cottages, winding streets, parks, shops, bars, restaurants and the infamous music venue, The Picturedrome. The Holme Valley hosts a number of festivals throughout the year including the now famous Festival of Folk (May), The Arts Festival (June) Food and Drink festival (September) and a great Music Festival (October). These main festivals run alongside and with other smaller festivals and weekends, such as the Film Festival, The Macmillan Art Exhibition, the Christmas markets, The Scarecrow Festival and, of course, the big cycle race ‘Le Tour De Yorkshire’, this is a wonderfully cultural place to visit. The town was made famous as the setting for the long-running comedy series Last of the Summer Wine. The nearby Colne Valley is home to fictional Skelthwaite from the Where the Heart Is series and, within reach, is the wonderful Peak District National Park – the setting for many picturesque and breathtaking scenic views. The town of Huddersfield and the bright lights of Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield are all within a short drive, making this an ideal base for exploring this exciting and exquisite area of Yorkshire.
