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.

Find another three bedrooms on this floor.

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.

Discover a host of fun water activities at Underbank Reservoir just over 11 miles away, where the whole family can partake in canoeing, kayaking, or raft building with lots more options for activities on dry land too.

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.

There's plenty to see in Holmfirth too, being set in the heart of the Holme Valley, it is a picturesque town with lots of local businesses and restaurants to enjoy, as well as a Last of The Summer Wine exhibition inside Compo's House as well as the option of a 10-mile guided tour of the area.

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.
