    Isolated, no wifi and no TV. Just beautiful surroundings, luxurious interior and an outdoor hot tub. What more could anyone want? There is everything you will need in the kitchen, including things like a garlic press, icecube tray, collinder and cafetiere so no need to take anything with you - we took loads of stuff and didn't use anything. Bits like washing up liquid, tinfoil, tea towels are also there as well as torches. Tea, instant coffee, fresh fruit, a pint of milk, a loaf of fresh bread from Holmfirth bakery, homemade jam and some butter are also there so breakfast is sorted on your first morning. Decent toiletries in the bathroom, towels, robes, slippers and even some big woolly socks are all included. The inside is amazing. The photos don't do justice to the inside. The hot tub is great. It kept it's heat really well, even during the rain and wind (it wasn't a particularly balmy July). The locals include a lot of raucous squirrels, a cock pheasant, a few shy calves and a pig who likes nothing better than to be lulled to sleep by being scratched with a stick. The local pub is 5 minutes walk with decent beer, a good gin selection, good food and also does takeaway pizza. This was the furthest we got during our 6 day stay as the yurt was so perfect we didn't want to do anything but relax on our own.

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.
