  • "Fantastic compact cottage."

    Very clean. Everything we needed was there, including a welcome basket full of goodies. I have allergies to cleaning products and the owner was very considerate to help me have a lovely stay. The location is excellent, very close to the town centre and lots of things to see. We would highly recommend this cottage.

  • "Despite miserable rainy weather we had the best time at 1 Oakleys in Holmfirth."

    The cottage was a real home from home, beautifully decorated with a cosy living room and super comfy bedrooms. Cathy, the owner, left us a lovely welcome pack with everything we might need, from milk and bread to wine, treats and a magazine. We had logs for the fire, toiletries in the bathroom, and there were lovely autumn pumpkins, table decorations and garlands dotted around which all added to the welcoming homely feel. We didn’t get to use the garden, but I bet it’s a great place to sit in the summer with a glass of wine. There are lots of lovely shops, cafes and bars in the village itself, and Cathy left a handy book with some great suggestions of places to visit. I will definitely be recommending the cottage - and our wonderful host - to all of my friends.

    It was ideal in terms of travelling to the venues but also so that we can spend time in Holmfirth during afternoon and evening. The cottage itself was perfect, immaculately presented with all amenities provided for in the most efficient manner. It has a beautiful garden from where we enjoyed lovely views across the valley. We would recommend it unreservedly and hope to be able to visit again.

    The garden is lovely though the weather meant we didn't sit out much! We lit the log burner a couple of times and it was lovely and warm. We loved the Farmers Arms and Compos, both close by. Lovely cafes and restaurants in town. The Last Of The Summer bus tour is very good. A great base for exploring the local area with walks from the door and further afield. Thanks for the lovely welcome hamper Cathy!

    Great location, beautiful views from the bedroom window, so cosy and spotlessly clean. Lovely little welcome pack was left by the host on arrival, beautiful garden and outside space. Just a 15mins walk into Holmfirth village centre. We visited Harvey's Restaurant which has the best cocktails and wonderful food. Would also recommend Lou&Joe's burger place.

We can highly recommend staying here you won’t be disappointed.The walks from the doorstep are stunning. We never took the car out once just walked from the cottage. Holmfirth town a nice 15 -20 minute walk. It’s worth a visit to the Fleece at Holm and the Huntsman Inn for great food. Again the hideout in Holmfirth is well worth a visit and of course Compos fish and chips is only a 5 minutes walk from the cottage. All in all we had a great time.

The property

A beautiful end-terrace cottage resting within the traditional Pennine town of Holmfirth in the Holme Valley, 1 Oakleys makes an astounding holiday base for couples or groups of four seeking a rural escape to West Yorkshire.

Boasting an eclectic mix of traditional character and contemporary charm, this modest yet magnificent holiday cottage is a true delight you'll be sure to want to return to.

Park up at the roadside before taking the nine steps down to be greeted by the stylish kitchen/diner; take a seat at the impressive oak top breakfast bar and toast to a terrific holiday, before preparing a snack with the good host of appliances and utensils at hand; you'll even find the microwave built into the wall, giving the property that extra special charismatic touch.

Move through to the sitting room and light up the woodburning stove in the winter months for the ultimate relaxing experience, as you tune into Netflix on the Smart TV for a film night.

Follow the staircase up to the first floor where you will find two equally enchanting double bedrooms, both boasting a contemporary interior and served by the sparkling shower room, they both offer the perfect spots to rest ahead of your next day's adventure.

Spend your mornings out in your own enclosed patio garden, with far-reaching views over the beautiful Yorkshire countryside, here you can enjoy a rejuvenating coffee amongst stunning scenery, or even dine alfresco with the assistance of the barbecue.

Take your bike out from the shed and head out to explore the wonders of the surrounding area; with the Pennine Way just two miles away, the cottage is perfectly situated for walkers and cyclists alike.

The renowned Compo's fish and chip restaurant is just a two minute walk away.

At the centre of Holmfirth you can find a wider selection of shops and eateries to choose from.

Spend an entertaining evening at the Picturedrome, the North of England’s finest live music venue where you can watch a variety of acts perform, with a public swimming pool and fitness centre being here too!

Be sure to check out the spots of the town made famous by The Last of The Summer Wine TV series, before following the routes of the Tour de France 2014 and the Tour de Yorkshire for the ultimate cycling experience.

Venture into the Peak District National Park to be met by even more walking and cycling opportunities, with moors, forests, lakes and more to explore, while the Upper Derwent Valley, home to the spectacular Ladybower and Derwent reservoirs offer the perfect romantic picnic spot.

Visit the world-famous Blue John Cavern in nearby villiage of Castleton and enjoy a traditional pudding in the market town of Bakewell, or travel further afield to discover the glory of Manchester, Sheffield and Huddersfield.

About the location


Peak District National Park 3 miles; Meltham 4 miles

The old traditional Pennine town of Holmfirth is situated in the heart of the beautiful Holme Valley, on the edge of the West Yorkshire Pennines. Made famous by The Last of The Summer Wine TV series, there is more to Holmfirth than Compo and Nora Battye’s stockings! The ‘Picturedrome’, the North of England’s finest live music venue attracts many famous bands and is located right in the centre of the town. The pelotons from the Tour de France 2014 and the Tour de Yorkshire have both been through this quaint Holme Valley town en route to the iconic 524 metre Holme Moss climb two miles away. It is in these hills where cycling’s triple Olympic Medalist Ed Clancy grew up. Holmfirth also has a good public swimming pool and fitness centre, parks and some super shops and restaurants. The people here are friendly, the streets are quaint and the scenery is breathtaking. The Peak District National Park with its moors, dales, forests, lakes and reservoirs is also easily accessible. The Upper Derwent Valley, home to the spectacular Ladybower and Derwent reservoirs, and where the famous 617 ‘Dambusters’ Squadron practiced the audacious bombing raid on the Ruhr valley in 1943, is only a short scenic drive away. Slightly further is Chatsworth, the stately home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, and situated close to the market town of Bakewell, the home of Bakewell Puddings. The Yorkshire Sculpture Park, The National Coal Mining Museum, Wentworth Castle, and the Hepworth Gallery are also within short drives away and well worth a visit. For a spot of culture, Holmfirth has annual festivals with many more attractions that bring visitors back for more; such as the Folk, Arts, and Food & Drink Festivals. Also not to be missed, is Holmfirth Vineyard and Restaurant, where you can book wine tasting tours and enjoy a lovely meal in the restaurant.
