    Local pub couldn’t have been nicer and the cottage itself was great. Could do with a little more in terms of kitchen equipment, but otherwise very nice, clean and comfortable

Situated in the heart of the rural village of Hepworth, amongst the rolling greenery of West Yorkshire, rests this delightful two-bedroom holiday home, School Cottage.

Dating back to the 18th century, School Cottage has been wonderfully renovated to a high-standard, brimming with quality fixtures and furnishings whilst maintaining the property's original character.

Stepping inside your new home-from-home, be charmed by the remarkable interior, thoughtfully-laid out with herringbone oak flooring, exposed wooden beams and elegant yet homely furnishings, effortlessly blending contemporary and traditional.

A set of stairs lead you to two bedrooms positioned on the first floor, consisting of a king-size and a twin, each boasting oak storage units to unpack your belongings and make yourself at home.

Completing the property is a stylish shower room along with a handy cloakroom.

Take advantage of your central location in Hepworth and take the short walk to the local gastropub, The Butchers Arms, and tuck-in to a spot of pub fare gathered around the open fire, or soak in the sunshine with a crisp pint of ale in the beer garden at the end of an action-packed day.

For a wider variety of choice, head to the nearby town of Holmfirth where you'll find a wealth of eateries to suit all tastes and budgets, along with a handful of shops to stock-up on essentials.

Nearby Meltham is home to an excellent 18-hole golf course, perfect for those looking for a peaceful afternoon retreat, whilst the bustling town of Huddersfield offers an exciting change of pace.

Immerse yourself in the great outdoors with a visit to the Peak District National Park where there is a plethora of scenic walking, cycling and hiking trails worth exploring, as well as the rural towns of Matlock and Bakewell.

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.
