  • "We enjoyed our time at Riverview but felt for the cost of the property it would have more facilities i."

    E. some of the following: Wifi, cafetiere or teapot, bread knife, more rugs on floor, another chopping board/trevit, bigger frying pan, radio in kitchen, veg peeler. The heating worked well and the freedom to boost was appreciated and the shower worked well. Generally clean and tidy, but the planters out front looked a bit sad. View out of the back was lovely. We enjoyed the bats over the river in the evening. We were able to park out the front on the road without problems.

  • "We loved the cottage and it was ideal for our three-day stay: it was perfectly clean and well presented, really cosy, amazing views, ideally positioned (for us) between the local shop and local pub, just five minutes' walk to each of them."

    We enjoyed watching the ducks on the river, the rabbits in the field, and hearing the rooks in the rookery at the front of the house. We loved that there is a nice circular walk round the village and over to the other side of the valley via Dobb Top Road, from where we could look back at the cottage. We found everyone in the village really friendly and welcoming, providing us with interesting pieces of local information and satisfying our curiosity. It is slightly sad that there isn't a place to sit out in the sun that isn't straight onto the road, but it's not a busy road and there are plenty of nice corners in the village to sit out in too; the description of the cottage openly describes the sitting out area at the front, so this was not a disappointment - it's just a pity because otherwise the cottage would be 100% perfect rather than 99.5% perfect :) The final thing is that we would have liked a teapot and a cafetiere in the property, but those are just our thoughts and of course many people may not be bothered about those things. Overall we had an amazing stay, blessed with glorious weather, lovely walks, great meals out and cosy evenings in by the log burner, thank you for sharing a lovely cottage and a super village with us.

  • "We had a lovely time, it's a great location for walks and a nice stroll down to Holmfirth for supplies."

    It was very comfortable and had everything we needed, was lovely to have a log fire to cosy up to. Only slight downside was no internet, but our phones had great reception so not a problem once we had bought some data. Thank you for a lovely visit (i thought i had already written a review but it didnt seem to have sent! Now I can't remember what I wrote).

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback, we’re so pleased you enjoyed your stay and that the property had everything you needed. We take on board your feedback regarding internet and are in the process of having it installed. Please note that the property is not advertised as having internet available. Property Owner

  • "This cottage was perfect, spotlessly clean, very nicely furnished and well equipped."

    Wifi would have been nice but we knew this was lacking when we booked so can’t complain. The surrounding countryside is stunning- pity it rained the whole time we were there!!

  • "We’ve had a great week in Riverside Cottage."

    We knew, as described, there wouldn’t be a garden. The cottage is sufficiently equipped and clean. Lots for us and our dog to do and explore in the area, lovely “High Peaks” surroundings. We would recommend anyone to stay in this cottage, as it was exactly as advertised: a really nice place to stay.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay! Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very clean and the decor was beautiful."

    Nice location in terms of the area and local pub was excellent. Not really suitable for a dog as although advertised as a garden it was about a metre from the gate to the front door and just concrete slabs So no where for the dog to really go and cottage is on a very busy street. Couple of small things in the cottage that would improve it for example no bins upstairs, no dressing table so no where to really dry hair with a mirror etc and the downside for us other than lack of garden was the shower it wasn’t a real shower just a head attached to bath taps and there was no bath mat so was slippery. If standing using the shower head.

    Thank you for your feedback, we’re so pleased you enjoyed your stay and found the property to be clean and in a good location. We apologise if you found the garden area unsuitable for your dog; we do advertise with several pictures so customers can see the full area prior to booking. We take note of your comments regarding improvements - We have temporarily removed the bin in the bathroom as items typically dispensed in it include used tissues, dental floss and female hygiene products and we would not expect our cleaners to handle these items given the current pandemic. Pleased be assured that it will be put back in future when safe to do so. We appreciate your comments regarding a dressing table and are in full agreement - this is something we are currently looking to put in. We note your comments regarding the shower, again this is something that is shown fully and described on the property details. Your feedback is very much appreciated and thank you again for booking to stay at Riverview! Property Owner

    A holiday home was beautiful the only thing it was lacking was things in the kitchen like a proper size oven tray for cooking a greater tea coffee sugar pots just little things but other than that there was no complaints whatsoever about anything else in there

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback and we’re so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We note your comments regarding an oven tray. Please note that there is a full size oven tray inside the oven and baking paper in the draw for ease of use. Your feedback is very much appreciated and thank you again for booking to stay!

  • "We didn’t even stay after hours of trying to contact your team we ended up booking somewhere else."

    Property was clean and tidy although the complimentary milk was sour but the garden/patio area was no where near safe or suitable for a dog we have been offered no help at all.

Be welcomed into an attractive cream kitchen, hosting all of the essential appliances for a smooth-sailing self-catering holiday.

Continue through to the warm and welcoming ambiance of the homely sitting/dining room, perfect for cold winter's nights snuggled on the pretty sofa as you delight in an enthralling movie on the Smart TV and keep nice and toasty from the heat of the woodburning stove.

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.
