  • "Great house for big group with en-suites being a big bonus."

    Loved the hot tub and all the outdoor seating. Loads of glasses and crockery which were needed for a big group. Having 2 dishwashers was perfect! The walking guides were really useful and the property management team were very helpful and responsive to any questions asked. The trip was just the best!

  • "Lovely clean property with good facilities."

    Having two dishwashers was excellent. We enjoyed our week. Comfortable beds, some of the en-suites were a bit tight for room. Dining room was great for family meals.

  • "These are comments made by various members of our party: Lovely house, lovely location."

    Back door lock could do with fixing, struggled to lock back door. Well equipped, clean, comfy beds, lovely soft towels. Nice touch and thoughtful welcome gift with birthday card and goodies. Lovely spacious house, comfy bed, everything we needed. Brilliant house for a family get together. Loved the hot tub. Struggled with 1 radiator in bedroom. Best nights sleep, where are the mattresses from? Want one. Perfect house and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

  • "We had a very enjoyable stay at The Old Post Office over New Year."

    The en-suite bathrooms were great (even if some are rather small!). We loved the dining room, with plenty of space for everyone, and the living room was cozy and comfortable. The kitchen had all we needed, including a great range cooker. It's an easy walk into Holmfirth and we enjoyed exploring the local area. We definitely recommend this house for groups wanting a comfortable stay in a great location

    We found it very clean and well equipped. The bed's were extremely comfortable, mattress, duvet and pillows and we slept well. I took pictures of the labels so I can purchase the same back home! The host Andrea met us at the property and showed us around and was very helpful. Definitely recommend this property.

  • "The house was comfortable and well equipped, with plenty of room for our party of twelve."

    The hot tub was serviced every day and a blocked drain was fixed the same day. Due to problems with one of the boilers, there was no running hot water on the upper floor, which caused some problems, although all the showers were working OK. We were told about the lack of hot water on the day before we arrived, but there was no offer of any refund for this inconvenience throughout our stay.

    Hi Graham, thank you for your feedback. On the point about the hot water, that boiler only serviced the upstairs basin and bath, with the downstairs basin working as usual, so we believe the inconvenience was negligible. Hope to see you again Property Owner

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 Batty’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.
