  • "Superb cottage full of character and period features."

    Situated in old centre of Holmfirth with elevated views across the valley. Immaculately clean and well equipped.

  • "12 Rattle Row is the perfect cottage for one person or a couple wanting to stay in the centre of a small town with good facilities and shops and eating places nearby."

    It was our second visit. The cottage was extremely comfortable and well equipped over three floors with two TVs and it now has Wi Fi too. We felt very at home there. The only slight down side is the steep walk up and down the cobbles and difficulty in parking in the very narrow Back Lane. We parked in Station Road car park less than 5 mins walk away which worked well. For those without a car, the bus station was close by with regular buses to Huddersfield and rural services to many small villages.

    Great location in the centre of the town, lots of little touches, you need to be able bodied as the stairs are steep but a fantastic little cottage

    Very comfortable bed fit a great nights sleep. Beautiful views from oration over village of Holmfirth. Friendly neighbours who gave lots of advice on areas to visit. Lovely busy village with lots to do and see. 10/10 for cottage and location.

  • "The cottage was homely and very clean, good base for exploring the local area."

    Plenty of information leaflets at the cottage to assist with finding walking routes. The only downside was a lack of WiFi which would enhance further as it would enable visitors to use the internet to research eateries, pubs for walks and more exploring.

  • "The cottage was comfortable and cosy, with everything we needed provided."

    It's very close to the town, and it was a pleasure to sit outside watching the world go by in the evening sun with a drink before dinner. The cottage is high up, with a steep climb up uneven steps and cobbles, but we are both able and fit so this was not a problem at all. The front door is behind a gate off the footpath, which gave it a lovely secure, secret garden feel.

    The property is very well laid out and immaculately clean. It is ideal for any couple who enjoy good food, excellent views from the terrace as well as exploring superb country side. We will certainly return for a second trip.

  • "This is my first experience using a rental company for a holiday cottage."

    Using Sykes was seamless. When I had a question, it was immediately answered which was appreciated. 12 Rattle Row exceeded my expectations. It was comfortable and clean. The owner was very responsive. There were several unexpected extras...the ginger cookies, candy and fruit that were available. There were many pamphlets as to where eat and places to go. The shower was easy to operate (unlike some of the places I have stayed in the UK). The bed was comfortable. I cannot believe how well I slept. The kitchen, which I did not really use for cooking, was fully equipped with a nice stove, refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, dishes, pots and pans, etc. The view from the terrace and the property windows was breathtaking. The property is about a 2 minute walk from the town center. The only issues some may have is that walking to the property could be an issue if you are not capable of climbing hills or the cobblestones. It is possible to drive as I understand it but parking is limited. There are three floors and the stairs are narrow. The bathroom is on the third floor. I did not find it to be a problem but it helps to be aware of this before renting. If I return to Holmfirth next year this property will be on my list of places to stay. It is a lovely property and fabulous location.

    Visitors are warned of steep pathways to the cottage. Holmfirth on the whole is hilly.

  • "This cottage was a wonderful place to take a break from life."

    Really well fitted out with everything needed to feel at home when away including towels, flowers, milk and cleaning stuff. The starter packs for the log burners were perfect and very much appreciated. The cottage is decorated and furnished to a high standard and the terrace is a wonderful suntrap of an evening to unwind and watch the sun go down. This is the best cottage I have stayed at and I would highly recommend it.

  • "Unfortunately we did not have time to leave a note in the owners visitors book and I would like to apologise for that."

    We were extremely happy with the accommodation and all the added 'extras' really impressed us. The info left for guests was most impressive. Unfortunately on the morning we were due to leave, my husband took some things up to the car where he met some workmen who told him the road was about to be closed off for repairs within the next 10 minutes. We then had a mad rush to collect our belongings and leave otherwise, we would have been stuck there for the rest of the day. Hence the reason we didn't have the time to leave a note for the owner. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends and family.

  • "This is a great cottage, centrally located."

    There are lot of steps so you need to be resonably fit. Located just off back lane didn't take long to find. The locals are great esp fella next door and we even got involved in a pub quiz teaming up with locals. Shops are lovely and tea rooms. Visited the local vineyard and had afternoon tea there, it was fantastic wine and views.

This lovely, quirky Grade II listed terrace cottage is tucked away down a pedestrian lane and provides wonderful views overlooking the town of Holmfirth.

Enter into the kitchen, where you will find a stone floor, exposed beams and a delightful old stone fireplace with woodburning stove by the dining table.

Up to the first floor sitting room is a wooden floor, open stone wall and warming woodburning stove, from where views over the town can be seen, and from the sitting room is another staircase leading to the second floor bedroom, with mullioned windows, wooden floor and exposed beams.

This is a charming, cosy cottage complete with small patio and a low stone wall, from where views of Holmfirth can again be seen, along with hills beyond, making this a perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of tea.

The town of Holmfirth, famous as being the setting of Last of the Summer Wine, offers a selection of old stone cottages and a number of festivals throughout the year, as well as shops, pubs and restaurants.

Within reach is the wonderful Peak District National Park, along with the cities of Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield.

This is an ideal cottage for a romantic escape at any time of the year.

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 Battye’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.
