  • “The downside was that the Cottage was fitted with an INDUCTION HOB, which was not mentioned in the information prior to our visit.”


    Induction Hobs CANNOT be used by anyone who has a PACEMAKER, (which is a large number of people!) which includes our married daughter, and therefore she could not use this equipment. She feels that this information about the Induction Hob should be made available with all the relevant initial information, as we would not have chosen this venue had we known. As a family, including the children, we have a competition during our holiday, to each provide the meals for one day, the main meal for only £10, and then vote at the end of the week for a winner, and obviously this annual event was spoilt by the fact that she could not take part easily and freely.

The property

Sitting in a prominent position in the traditional town of Holmfirth is this exceptional detached cottage, spanning over a multi-level layout and overlooking breath-taking views of the surrounding countryside.

Ivy Dene is a lovely retreat, perfect for friends and family looking to explore the beautiful Holme Valley and Peak District National Park.

Set over three floors, this welcoming abode bursts with charm and character throughout.

Make yourself at home in the inviting kitchen/diner, cooking up your favourite meal to be enjoyed around the dining table over a bottle of wine.

Continuing to impress is the delightful sitting room, where you could enjoy a snug film night on the Smart TV, or relax on the sofa and curl up with a good book.

You will also find a handy cloakroom and access to a large balcony, which wraps around the property, overlooking the lawn below and far-reaching landscapes with steps down to the terrace below.

An inviting king-size bedroom can be found on the lower-ground-floor, benefiting from its very own en-suite shower room.

The remaining two bedrooms sit on the first floor, both king-size and with pretty décor.

The first floor rooms have full access to a gorgeous shared bathroom, a relaxing space to unwind in a soothing bubble bath after a long day of exploration.

You will also find a reading room with a selection of books and games.

Down several steps to the lower-ground-floor is a patio area with seating next to a lush lawn, great for letting your furry friends run free whilst you sip on your morning coffee.

If you can tear yourself away from the holiday home, better acquaint yourself with your surroundings and explore the picturesque town centre of Holmfirth, picking up some local delicacies at one of the nearby independent shops, before enjoying a drink and a bite to eat at one of the restaurants, wine bars or pubs.

Soak up the beauty of the surrounding Holme Valley, home to the Last of The Summer Wine exhibition inside Compo's House and the sensational Picturedrome, a renowned live music venue where you can catch a variety of shows.

Bring along your bicycles and head on the routes of the Tour de France 2014 and the Tour de Yorkshire starting in the town centre, an unforgettable experience for avid cyclists.

Pop on your walking boots and spend a day at the Peak District National Park, filled to the brim with adventurous trails among enchanting forests, rugged moors, serene lakes and steep hills, as well as the Upper Derwent Valley where you can indulge in a romantic picnic at the Ladybower and Derwent reservoirs.

More fun can be found in the neighbouring village of Castleton which hosts the fascinating Blue John Cavern, along with independent shops and welcoming pubs.

Ivy Dene is the ideal spot for a relaxing escape to the countryside, with the bustling cities of Manchester, Sheffield and Huddersfield in reach.

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.
