    Location very good for our needs, No difficulty for parking space, quiet road and road users patient while dropping off persons, very good in extras,soap,towels bedding,toilet paper,a little milk,tea,coffee. The vac did not work properly, the bathroom light pull switch erratic, the oven was either high or low on setting, thermostat? Indoor doors warped a little but gave it that lived in feel.Front door sticks at the bottom, under the seat cushion bits not vacced up, missed Suggestion - Could do with another two full size dining chairs instead of the fold downs, could be put elsewhere. as four adults was difficult to sit together at the table. A sofa bed could be useful. No big deal overall as the place was otherwise a Joy to be there, in fact snowed in one day and warm enough, nice touches in decorations,information books and games,even take away places delivery info. I am pleased if you edit this to your satisfaction as if there are big issues which is not the case and easily solved We were here a week and would love to go here again.

The property

This quiet, 2-bedroom character cottage is located in the small, picturesque village of Holmbridge,1.5 miles from Holmfirth, and close to the Peak District and the Pennine Way.

The stone-built overdwelling dates from the early 1800s, and is accessed through a colourful community garden and a quaint pedestrian-only street, up a short flight of steps. Crosland Cottage sleeps 4, in a front double bedroom and a rear bedroom with bunk beds on the 1st floor.

It can be rented together with Hinchlif Cottage, which is directly below, for up to 7 people.

Guests enter through the compact, well-equipped kitchen which has a gas stove and washing machine.

The bathroom, completely remodeled in May 2018, is off the kitchen and offers a bath with a brand new shower and heated towel rails.

The sitting room is newly carpeted, and features the original cast iron Yorkshire range, now fitted with a woodburning effect gas stove, and decorated with genuine Victorian artefacts.

History is complemented by WiFi, and a flat screen TV tastefully secreted in a corner cupboard.

If you prefer board games there are plenty of those; with luck, the children may never discover the TV at all.

The dining table is beside the window which overlooks the river and the valley from 4 storeys up.

If and when the sun shines, the shared courtyard space surrounded by the small community garden is a perfect place to relax.

A public footpath begins at the end of the street, and the location is perfect for hikers and cyclists with immediate access to many local trails.

Holmbridge is well-known for its connections to the TV series Last of the Summer Wine and has a village shop and a brewpub with excellent gourmet food is within walking distance of the cottage.

Nearby Holmfirth offers a wider range of shops, pubs and restaurants and is home to the well known Palladium music venue.

About the location

HOLMBRIDGE

Holmfirth 1.5 miles, Huddersfield 8 miles.

The small village of Holmbridge is situated just 1.5 miles from the traditional Pennine market town of Holmfirth, within the beautiful Holme Valley. The village has two pubs, a cricket club, a convenience store, a church and its own vineyard which offers tours, tasting and great food. In 2014 the Tour de France passed through the village and the challenging climb of Holme Moss is nearby. Close by, the town of Holmfirth has old stone cottages, winding streets, parks, shops, bars, restaurants and the infamous music venue, The Picturedrome. The Holme Valley hosts a number of festivals throughout the year including the now famous Festival of Folk (May), The Arts Festival (June) Food and Drink festival (September) and a great Music Festival (October). These main festivals run alongside and with other smaller festivals and weekends, such as the Film Festival, The Macmillan Art Exhibition, the Christmas markets, The Scarecrow Festival and, of course, the big cycle race ‘Le Tour De Yorkshire’, this is a wonderfully cultural place to visit. The town was made famous as the setting for the long-running comedy series Last of the Summer Wine. The nearby Colne Valley is home to fictional Skelthwaite from the Where the Heart Is series and, within reach, is the wonderful Peak District National Park – the setting for many picturesque and breathtaking scenic views. The town of Huddersfield and the bright lights of Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield are all within a short drive, making this an ideal base for exploring this exciting and exquisite area of Yorkshire.
