The property

A character, semi-detached cottage, located on the owner's working farm, in the village of Hepworth, 2 miles from the town of Holmfirth within the Yorkshire Dales.

This cottage has been finished to a high standard, still keeping a lot of the original features, making a wonderful holiday base for families or groups of friends.

The cottage is entered via the stable door into the well-equipped kitchen with a utility to store coats and boots, just across the corridor is the dining room and a shower room. A few steps down takes you to the large sitting room, where you will notice the beautiful character with high ceilings and exposed beams, as well as exposed stonework.

There is plenty of comfy seating in front of a welcoming woodburning stove, making a great place to relax a full day out and about exploring the beautiful area.

Just off the sitting room is a small sun room perfect for enjoying breakfast whilst taking in the scenery.

There is everything needed here for your stay, even somewhere for your four-legged friends to sleep.

Upstairs are four bedrooms, all with different sized beds, giving great flexibility.

The twin bedroom is within the eaves and would make a great place for the kids to stay.

There is also a bathroom on the first floor.

To the outside is plenty of lawned gardens to the front of the cottage; a great place for the kids to let off some steam and for the dogs to stretch their legs.

To the side is a lovely gravelled area with a hot tub; enjoy with a glass of something chilled whilst enjoying the sights and sounds of the countryside.

Watch the Indian Runner Ducks splash about in the duck pond and the chickens, sheep and lambs wandering through the ample fields that are to front of the cottage.

If you fancy collecting your own eggs for breakfast,this can be arranged directly with the owners for the price of the eggs or take the goats for a walk.

A ten minute walk takes you into the village itself with a beautiful church.

Also within walking distance are a couple of pubs.

Don't forget to pack your walking boots and bikes as there are varied and interesting walks right from the doorstep, and the beautiful surroundings ensure that you have all the makings for a relaxing, enjoyable break.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.A short distance takes you to the town of Holmfirth with its many shops, pubs and restaurants.Holmfirth is famous as the setting for the comedy series, Last of the Summer Wine.

The Peak District National Park with its moors, dales, forests, lakes and reservoirs is also easily accessible.

Whether you decide to explore the surrounding Dales or the Peak District, this is a great location to explore at any time of the year.

About the location


Holmfirth 2 miles; Glossop 16 miles.

The old traditional Pennine village of Hepworth is situated in the heart of the beautiful Holme Valley, on the edge of the West Yorkshire Pennines. Mentioned in the Doomsday Book, the village is made up of lovely old stone cottages, a beautiful church and excellent pubs, restaurants and cafes. The village has many traditions including the centuries old Hepworth Feast, which commemorates the end of the Great Plague in Hepworth and is held annually on the last Monday in June. Hepworth along with its nearby neighbour Holmfirth, will be remembered by most as being the home of Compo, Cleggy and Nora Batty, from the long running comedy series 'Last of the Summer Wine', whilst the nearby Colne Valley is home to the fictional 'Skelthwaite' from the successful TV series 'Where the Heart Is'. A lovely area steeped in history where visitors always enjoy the genuine hospitality of a thriving local community.
