This lovely detached cottage, dating back to the 1830s, is set all on the first floor, next to the owners’ home, in the Pennine town of Holmfirth.
The Coach House sits above the former stables of the impressive Undercliffe House, where the owners now live, and it was once the residence of the estate’s gardener.
Inside you’ll find a comfortable family room with a double bed and a single bed, as well as a sofa bed in the sitting room, making this property the ideal social space for a family holiday.
When you’ve prepared a hearty meal in the well-equipped kitchen, the cosy sitting room also offers a dining area to enjoy dinner with your loved ones, or the French doors in this room lead to a patio, where you can dine alfresco with a glass of something cool.
There is also secure storage for bikes, making this property a great choice for cycling amongst the trails where once the Tour de France route passed, with amazing views around every bend.
Now, the Tour de Yorkshire runs through the village and on 30th April 2017 will pass directly by the cottage!
Holmfirth sits in the heart of the beautiful Holme Valley, just north of the Peak District, an area renowned for its stunning scenery and dramatic landscapes - so why not pull on those walking boots and discover all that this splendid area has to offer?

About the location
Meltham 4 miles; Peak District National Park 6 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.
