  • "The cottage was really charming with lots of lovely features."

    Really well- equipped kitchen. Amazing scenery and walks from the doorstep. Great pub a short walk away. Even better if... there were a couple of deckchairs to sit out on the decking.

  • "The cottage was just lovely."

    It was warm, with a high standard of cleaning and well furnished. We had a slight problem with the heating which Kyra (house keeper) sorted very quickly and efficiently. The situation of the cottage was perfect for amenities, walks and shops. I would absolutely book this cottage again.

  • "The property is in need of a deep clean, given the check out and check in times there is sufficient time to clean."

    We ended up doing some cleaning on arrival. Black mould in the shower, no excuse this isn’t acceptable. Parking is on a busy main road and there is no back garden, we found the photo of the garden to be misleading. We liked the house being split over 3 floors and getting to use an Aga was an experience. We wouldn’t stay in this property again.

  • "What a fab property and area."

    This is the first time we have visited this part of Yorkshire and were not disappointed the area and views were amazing and it was easy to get to Leeds or Manchester from the property. The property was just what we needed quite, clean, homely and with everything we needed. It was great to use the Aga and at night to sit around the log fire and during the day looking at the countryside and surrounding area. We enjoyed the area so much we will be back later 2020 with a view to move to the area.

  • "Be careful because The cottage is number 236 but the directions say that the cottage is number 208 Also the cottage is listed as per friendly But dogs are supposed to sleep in the kitchen which is on the ground floor."

    Our dog will not sleep on his own so to save a couple of nights of wining, barking And possible damage to the door from him trying to get up stairs I ended up stopping in the kitchen with him which is far from ideal. I feel this should be put inThe listing to avoid this happening to any one else. Apart from that the cottage is loved in a Great location

Internally, the property has been renovated into a modern holiday home, whilst still retaining its wonderful period features with the exposed beams, hardwood flooring and original stone walls.

Entering the property, you will be greeted to an open-plan kitchen/diner, which has been fitted to a high-standard and houses a range of contemporary appliances so you can easily rustle up a delicious home-cooked meal for the whole family!

There is a spacious dining table to enjoy your meals over a well-deserved glass of wine, whilst the breakfast bar is the perfect spot for a hearty breakfast whilst planning the day's events.

Follow the steps up to the first-floor sitting room, where you can look forward to relaxing and unwinding on the provided sofas, with the lovely woodburning stove to keep you warm during those chillier winter months.

The second-floor provides two bedrooms, consisting of a double and twin setup, with a range of furniture to store your personal items.

There is a family bathroom which boasts a walk-in shower, giving an excellent opportunity for a warm and relaxing soak at the end of a tiring day.

About the location


Holmfirth 1 mile, 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.
