  • "What a beautiful cottage!"

    ! It was immaculately clean, had all the "mod cons" and some stunning views. The kitchen has been well thought out with everything you could possibly wish for. Bedrooms were very comfortable and very clean. The "Snug" was a dream, a lovely place to read a book or just chill with a book and admire the wonderful view. I would not hesitate to book this cottage again in the future. Thank you to Andrew & Linda for such a wonderful stay.

  • "We could not fault this property."

    It has everything that is needed for a very comfortable stay for two couples. The property was very clean and inviting with everything that you could possibly need for a holiday home. We found the welcome pack very useful, as we were ready for a cuppa when we arrived. As stated it is a 15 minute walk into the centre of Holmfirth where you will find plenty of lovely restaurants .We especially loved Harvey's. We also enjoyed the Last of the Summer Wine bus tour and found this excellent value for money.

  • "We found Rivendell a 'home from home', with a large fitted kitchen including fridge, freezer, dish washer, coffee maker etc."

    and a cosy sitting room with television, gas 'log' fire and easy chairs - even a 'snug' for those who prefer to curl up with a book! Two double bedrooms, one with an en-suite and a bathroom with both bath and shower. The 'welcome pack' was very generously filled, and there were coffee and hot chocolate capsules for the coffee maker, fresh milk and tea available. The cottage is situated on a hillside with a wonderful view of the Holme Valley, and just 15 minutes walk to Holmfirth centre (alternatively, a bus-stop is nearby). A garden area and large parking space are on the other side of the road (adjacent to no.32). There are plenty of places to eat out in Holmfirth, and the White Horse at nearby Jackson Bridge serves wholesome meals from 4 o'clock, or from midday on Fridays and the weekend (it's closed on Mondays). All in all, Rivendell offers an ideal base to return to each day after exploring this fascinating and beautiful part of Yorkshire and we would thoroughly recommend it. James, Rose and Thomas

    We are glad you enjoyed your stay James and we look forward to seeing you back soon 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.
