  • "Great property and great hosts."

    Met us and showed us around and how things worked. Very friendly and welcoming. We stayed with family and would definitely stay again. Great space and plenty of room that you don’t feel squashed in. Highly recommend.

    Andrea went above and beyond and was a great host. The location of the house was close to Holmfirth . The house was spacious and very clean. The welcome pack was great too. Would highly recommend this lovely house .

  • "We had a great time staying at Ash Villa."

    Holmfirth is lovely and there was much more to do than we expected. Loads of interesting shops, restaurants and bars. The house was great. Lots of communal living space and nice, spacious bedrooms. Kitchen well equipped and everything explained very well by the owner. Owner was great and flexible when we arrived. All very good and a great place for us (as a group of six individuals) to stay and relax.

  • "Enjoyed our stay as a group."

    Home is lovely and comfortable beds. Communal areas are great especially the large dining table. It would have been useful for all rooms to have a mirror. Also things like washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, laundry detergent, barbecue lighter would all have been welcome. Communication was good and we were able to contact someone throughout our stay as needed.

    Really enjoyed it. Many compliments about the comfort of the beds

  • "The house is beautiful, roomy and was very clean but the bathroom information is misleading, two bathrooms are en-suite which means that 6 people share the other bathroom on the first floor, there are no ground floor bathroom facilities other than a toilet."

    This is a lovely property, very clean inside but the garden was neglected, weeds, still Autumn leaves ( late May) and contrary to the pictures Astroturf instead of lawn. Access to the property is difficult, a very steep drive , if your vehicle is wider or longer eg an estate it is hazardous.

  • "There were just a few things that could have made this house excellent."

    The lounge needs another sofa as we couldn’t all sit together. The main bathroom definitely needs something to put your toiletries on in the shower and the water takes ages to drain. The driveway is extremely steep, this should be mentioned better in your listing. The area outside the door was very dirty, every time we came into the house, you brought it all in with you. This made the kitchen floor really dirty. Overall though, we really enjoyed our stay.

  • "Lovely property and Andrea took very good care of welcoming us and showing us around."

    Really nice welcome hamper and overall good facilities. There are 2 en-suites, a family bathroom and an additional toilet, I know some people have reviewed poorly based on this but we found it no issue for our stay. Sonos is no longer installed but this didn’t really affect us. Really lovely views and ideal for a large group, kitchen is well equipped and everywhere is very clean. We’d definitely stay again!

    Well-equipped, clean and very comfortable. Only suggestion for improvement would be providing some big serving dishes for meal times

  • "Although we had a nice stay we would not book this property again and would not have booked it in the first instance if the Sykes description had been accurate."

    The listing says it has 5 bathrooms when it actually has 3, 2 or which are ensuite so not really suitable for anyone other than the people staying in that room. The other 2 bathrooms are actually just toilets. There is no way we would have booked this property if this had been accurately described in the listing. Also, there are not enough comfy sofas in the lounge area for the number of people staying at the property.

    Perfect for a group getaway. The hosts have catered for every situation with large table for dining. Quality finish in the kitchen and downstairs with some impressive modern additions. Close enough to walk into holmfirth. Only recommendation is that they have a close by the house so you know where you’re going.

    Amazing house and grounds, gorgeous views. Welcome package was a lovely touch. Host was very accommodating to our early arrival and late check out, easy check in and out system. Our only two gripes was the back door was impossible to open and lock, leaving us to leave it open all weekend, and I would advise taking your own mirror’s as none provided in some rooms/bathrooms, oh and the induction hob was a pain to work with multiple pans. Would 100% book again!! !! Thank you

  • "Gorgeous house and great location."

    We had no hot water for the first night and day- not acceptable on a 3 day break- it should have been checked before we got there. But- as per other guests comments in the guest book- this has happened with the water before so think the owners need to alter the way they provide water to a large amount of people. Also- why no doors on two of the en-suite bathrooms? makes it really difficult to share a family room- we have two teenagers - we don’t want to see them going to the toilet and they definitely don’t want to see mum and dad going to the toilet. Would be simple to rectify - other guests have commented on this. Also- some booklets or info sheets on how to use the coffee machine and various other electrical items provided.

  • "The house is beautiful, really big bedrooms and we loved the open plan kitchen, and walk through lounge area."

    The house is warm and cozy and we loved the wood burner. Cinema room was well used and our son loved the basement bedroom! The views from the front of the house are amazing and it is such a beautiful area. Lovely walks from the door. Comms before and during our stay were great. A couple of minor niggles including two of the kitchen drawers (and some utensils) needed cleaning, but the rest of the house was immaculate and we had everything we needed, and more. There was a lovely arrival pack, with milk and a bottle of wine waiting in the fridge. If there had been more of us I think that there might have been pressure on the showers (two of the showers are in ensuite bathrooms, and only one is accessible to all in the huge family bathroom), and more (larger) pans might be needed for bigger groups. We had a fantastic holiday here, and want to return for a longer stay, with more family members, as soon as we can (we were a small immediate family group, because of CV19 restrictions).

The property

A stunning Victorian villa enjoying an elevated position commanding outstanding views over the West Yorkshire countryside and the nearby Peak District, Ash Villa is a four-storey detached house, ideal for a large family or group holiday.

Featuring ornate cornice detailing on the high ceilings, chandeliers and a grand exterior, Ash Villa has been brought into the 21st century with underfloor heating, state-of-the-art wet rooms, and smart devices.

Once you've passed through the electric gates and parked on the drive, make your way into this unique property, head for the stylish open-plan living space; the sitting room boasts a classic chesterfield leather sofa and two armchairs, with a woodburning stove and a large Smart TV, all placed before the long bay window which displays the lovely view of the countryside.

Step from the hard wood floors of the sitting room onto the glossy tiles of the kitchen and dining area to make use of this excellently equipped space, with a vast kitchen island to gather around with a glass of wine while a delicious meal is prepared, and a long dining table awaits holding a seat for everyone.

Plan a film night and head down the stairs to the lower-ground-floor beneath the house where a fantastic cinema room has been set up, you can lounge on the large corner sofa and delight in watching your favourite flicks on the big projector screen.

Also on this floor is a fabulous wine cellar, a cloakroom and a king-size bedroom, perfect for a bit of privacy.

Back up on the ground floor, there is also a utility room off the kitchen area, a cloakroom with a granite sink and a king-size bedroom with a beautiful feature fireplace.

Head upstairs to the first floor to be impressed with the incredible family bathroom; this huge wet room features a rainfall shower and a huge sunken bath, perfect for relaxing in after a long afternoon walk.

A double complete with a walk-in wardrobe, a king-size bedroom, as well as a family bedroom with a king-size and a single with an en-suite wet room.

The sixth bedroom is on the second floor and is home to a king-size bed and two singles and benefits from another amazing bathroom, featuring a striking roll-top bath and a spacious walk-in shower.

Outside you can dine out on the decking or indulge in some evening drinks here, while children will love playing on the neat lawn, all with a breath-taking backdrop of open fields and country views.

When you can tear yourself away from this magnificent home, you'll find a host of attractions scattered around this area of the UK well worth visiting.

The northern end of the Peak District is on your doorstep and boasts miles of excellent walking country, hop on the Pennine Way and follow the route south to experience natural beauty all around and some wonderful landscapes.

For a day of culture and arts like no other, visit the incredible Yorkshire Sculpture Park with sculptures from the likes of Henry Moore placed in the rural landscape, with a café here too and a gift shop.

Kirklees Light Railway can be found in the Pennine foothills and offers steam-train rides in their beautiful hand-painted carriages, taking passengers along a 3.5 mile route through the foothills of the south Pennines from Clayton West to Shelley, passing scenic countryside and woodlands.

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.
