  • "Lovely cottage on the edge of the Peak District."

    The house was comfortable with considered facilities. Met our needs for a short break away from it all. The property owner was incredibly helpful and a great host, leaving milk and tea/coffee and biscuits for us on arrival. Good information on local area and recommendations. Feedback would be upgrade of pillows and a mirror in the spare room and perhaps a few coat hangers. Otherwise everything was perfect.

    Hi Dana, so pleased you and your sister enjoyed your stay and found everything to your liking. Thank you so much for constructive and positive feedback. Pillows, mirror and hangers are on the shopping list. Property Owner

  • "We have been staying at Bowshaw while having work done on our home."

    Bowshaw is a lovely, peaceful, comfortable cottage in a beautiful area with some wonderful local walks and near to the small town of Holmfirth. The cottage has had everything we needed and the owner has been very helpful. Highly recommended

  • "What an absolute gem!"

    We stayed for a couple of days in total comfort. The cottage is wonderfully quiet, clean, airy and light with lovely views over the local area and is really thoughtfully and well equipped. The owner also left it well stocked with essentials for our stay. It even comes with a superb pub just a short walk away. What’s not to like? Definitely recommended and would happily book again

    Thank you for your feedback. Really happy you enjoyed your stay in the Holme Valley. Property Owner

  • "Very nice. Just outside Holmfirth but within easy reach- a couple of miles maybe - and only a few minutes walk from the pub."

    All the facilities in good condition. Parking is right outside for anyone driving a rationally-propotioned vehicle. No regrets about choosing to stay here.

The property

Located on the outskirts of Hade Edge in West Yorkshire is Bowshaw, a well-presented, two-bedroom home.

Enjoying views over Boshaw Whams Reservoir and the rolling hills of the Peak District National Park, Bowshaw offers a contemporary base for a couple or a family of three, looking to explore the delights of the region.

Be welcomed by an off-road parking space, before travelling through the enclosed garden, up the external steps and into the entrance porch.

Step into the stylish, open-plan living space, where you can unwind with the Smart TV for entertainment, rustle up delicious meals in the well-equipped kitchen, and dine around the handy breakfast bar.

If the weather allows, spend some time outside in the enclosed garden, where you can bask in the sunshine and toast to your break, before sloping off to sleep in one of two bedrooms on offer; select between a double and a single, both serviced by a sleek bathroom.

Enjoy either a bath or a refreshing shower before kickstarting your itinerary, finding all the essentials in Hade Edge.

Traverse through the national park, reaching the pretty landscape of Winscar Reservoir, climb up to Holme Moss Summit, or follow the hiking trail of Black Hill, before planning your route north towards Folly Dolly Falls, enveloped by woodland walks.

The small hamlet of Holmfirth made famous by the hit TV series 'Last of the Summer Wine,' and the northern outskirts of the Peak District are nearby, making it an interesting destination for a relaxing walking break.

Holmfirth is home to restaurants, shops, and the Last of the Summer Wine Exhibition.

The Picturedome attracts many famous musicians and hosts live music events all year, and the environment surrounding this place is truly spectacular.

Explore the reservoirs and stroll the circular routes available at the Peak District National Park, as well as cycling and other outdoor sports.

Travel into Huddersfield for further attractions, where you can practise your swing at Longley Park Golf Club or ascend to Castle Hill for views across the region, whilst the Manor Heath Jungle Experience and the Cannon Hall Museum, Park and Gardens, are further popular attractions to take advantage of in the area.

Experience all of this, and more, at Bowshaw.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
