The property

Resting in the heart of the village of Holmfirth, close to a range of amenities, lies this stone-built cottage on elevated ground, Victoria House.

Tucked away in the Holme Valley, this semi-detached home serves as an excellent base for families eager to explore the surrounding countryside, including the scenic Peak District National Park.

After parking up on the driveway, climb a set of steps to reach the front door, just next to the owner’s home.

Discover the kitchen, finished to a contemporary standard with all the mods and cons required for a short break, including a dishwasher, fridge/freezer and electric oven with induction hob.

After a day of hiking the peaks, retire to the sitting room, complete with two sofas and a Smart TV, it’s a homely space for the perfect night in.

Each of the bedrooms have been thoughtfully furnished with fresh bed linens and storage units, while the shower room offers a contemporary space to prepare for the day.

Morning coffees can be enjoyed at the bistro table on the patio in the private garden area, before popping into a nearby café for a warm breakfast.

There are also a plethora of restaurants and shops in the town, along its own charming picturedrome, art gallery and even the breath-taking tourist attraction of Shaley Top.

Those avid cyclists can explore the routes of the Tour de France 2014 and Tour de Yorkshire starting in the town centre, or if you’d prefer to stay on your feet, the gorgeous landscapes of the Peak District National Park are nearby, offering deep woodlands, rugged moors, tranquil lakes and steep hills.

Venture into the quaint village of Castleton, a popular honey-pot location with its fascinating Blue John Cavern, along with many independent shops and welcoming pubs.

With Sheffield and Huddersfield in easy reach too, Victoria House offers a great touring base, whatever time of year.

About the location

HOLMFIRTH

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.
