  • "We had a wonderful stay in this delightful cottage in February."

    It was warm and cosy throughout, and we were made to feel very welcome from the outset with a lovely array of treats, such as a vase of flowers and biscuits, and also some thoughtful essentials, such as bread, milk and tea/coffee. The cottage was easy to find, with plenty of on-street parking just outside. This felt comfortable like being 'at home' rather than staying in someone else's holiday let; really lovely! Thank you for our stay.

  • "Just to say Oakleys is a fabulous cottage."

    Spotlessly clean and really cosy. The photos really don’t do it justice. The kitchen is super equipped with everything you’d need. We had a lovely very appreciated welcome basket packed full of goodies on our arrival. The cottage was lovely and warm when we walked in. The attention to detail throughout the cottage is superb. 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.

    Thank you so much for the lovely review. Really pleased you enjoyed the cottage and the area. We love it too. Property Owner

  • "This cottage was the perfect place to see in the New Year !"

    It is spotlessly clean, comfortable and very cosy. The owner's attention to detail is second to none , the fixtures and fittings are of a very high standard and the hamper was a lovely welcoming touch. The owner had left decorations and fairy lights which made the place feel extra special. The bedrooms and bathroom are beautifully decorated and have a cosy , hunting lodge feel about them. Holmfirth is very close - a ten minute walk and there is lots to do in the local area. A fabulous place to stay - highly recommended!

  • "The Cottage was absolutely delightful, tastefully fitted with everything you needed and far exceeded our expectations."

    It was beautifully decorated for Christmas which made it even more special, we loved our stay here. The bed in the back room was one of the most comfortable I slept on, which for me was the biggest bonus. Cathy the owner was extremely warm and helpful and responded immediately to any questions or requests we had. The location has lots of nice restaurants to visit and is situated right in the heart of beautiful countryside.

  • "We had a very good week at the property, which was cosy, comfortable and had everything needed for a worry free stay."

    The added touch of a welcome hamper and guides to the local area were much appreciated and enjoyed! The house is perfect for up to 4 adults or a small family, but as a romantic retreat for a couple it is ideal.

  • "Our stay last week was fabulous due to the excellently furnished and presented cottage."

    It was all super and just like the photos. The garden view was wonderful for coffee in the morning. The welcome pack was excellent with the essentials. Very clean too. 20 mins walk into Holmfirth with a wonderful selection of restaurants and cafés. We would stay again.

  • "Fabulous cottage with everything we needed and lots more."

    Superb welcome pack on arrival and everything spotless and welcoming. Great Wifi and a Smart TV to catch up with programmes on the evening. Easy to park across the road and a 1,200 metres downhill walk to the Town Centre, unfortunately our local pub just 200 metres away was closed for refurb. We highly recommend the Elephant and Castle just over the bridge in town, lovely meals and great to sit outside in the sunshine:-) Lots of side roads to explore for those who don't mind the hills, we had lots of walks from base to surrounding villages and actually walked over 60 miles in our time there.Luckily we had a mini heat wave and had sunshine throughout.

  • "This was a beautiful holiday cottage."

    Very well equiped with everything we needed. The welcome basket was lovely. The weather was kind to us and we were able to sit outside on the patio and make the most of the wonderful views. The cottage is situated within walking distance of the charming town of Holmfirth and therefore unless we were venturing further afield we didn't need the car. If we comeback to this beautiful part of the country then 1 Oakleys will be top of our list.

    From the lovely welcome basket, the thoughtful interior design and the outdoor space which was beautiful, private, peaceful and a lovely place to have a glass of wine at the end of the day. I would very much recommend it. My husband and I enjoyed very much.

  • "No 1 Oakleys Holmfirth surpassed our expectations."

    It was a small cottage but was well appointed and well designed and fitted 4 people in comfortably. It was immaculate and a lovely welcome basket was left for us. I was originally looking for a cottage nearer to my daughter at Sheffield Uni but glad I opted for this cottage which although slightly further away than I had hoped, but worth the extra drive.

  • "Such a wonderful cottage in a fantastic location!"

    The place is stylish, cosy and also really practical - there is everything you need here, along with welcome finishing touches to make it feel like a home. We are both avid cyclists, and the place is really well set up for that - perfect location for some great rides, and secure bike storage. The garden area is also south facing, so perfect to sit in the sun with a coffee looking onto the hills. We’ll certainly be returning as soon as we can!

    Lovely quality furnishings and immaculately clean. Perfectly located on the edge of Holmfirth, with many lovely walks from the doorstep and easy access to the moors for walking / biking - and the town for provisions. Plus a wonderful welcome pack.

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.

At the top of the road you can find both a welcoming pub and two fish restaurants, perfectly placed for after a day of adventure.

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.
