    “We had a wonderful week at Upper Peaks Barn.”

    The cottage was lovely and had everything we needed, apart from something to light the log burner! It is smaller than it looks on the pictures but it didn’t matter and was plenty big enough for 4 adults, 4 children and a dog. ...

    The cottage was lovely and had everything we needed, apart from something to light the log burner! It is smaller than it looks on the pictures but it didn’t matter and was plenty big enough for 4 adults, 4 children and a dog. It’s about a 20 minute walk downhill into Slaithwaite which is a nice town, with cafes, pubs etc, there is an Aldi to do shopping or a Morrisons in Meltham which is only a couple of minutes drive. The walk back up the hill is hard work though so don’t do lots of shopping if walking!! We ate at a really nice pub called the Rose & Crown high up on a hill, we recommend driving or a taxi though as you have to walk up a huge hill to get there! Also had a great Indian takeaway from Monsoon restaurant in the town. The cottage was a good base to get around, Holmfirth is worth a visit as well as Hardcastle Crags and Padley Gorge which are heaven for kids with woods, streams and rocks to climb on!! I would definitely recommend staying at Upper Peaks.

About the location


Marsden 2 miles; Meltham 2 miles; Holmfirth 6 miles.

The traditional West Riding village of Slaithwaite is set in the Colne Valley in the South Pennines, just six miles from the picturesque market town of Holmfirth. Full of history, the village retains several buildings from the mid 15th century, including Slaithwaite Hall, one of the few surviving cruck frame structures in Yorkshire. The viaduct dominates the skyline and is an awe-inspiring sight, whilst the village centre is very pretty with the restored Huddersfield Canal winding through and a lovely selection of independent shops, self-brewing pubs and eateries, where you can sample local fare. The nearby village of Marsden boasts the tourist attractions of Tunnel End and the National Trust's Marsden Moor Estate, which is a haven for walkers and naturalists alike, and it also hosts the internationally renowned Jazz Festival each year. The appealing town of Holmfirth is well worth a visit for its shops and quality pubs and restaurants and is known as the home of the long running comedy series, Last of the Summer Wine, Bamforth's postcards and its Picturedrome concert venue. Within easy reach of the northern Peak District and the southern Yorkshire Dales, Slaithwaite is well-situated, offering beautiful and diverse countryside with great walking and cycling opportunities. Alternatively, an hour's drive can take you to the historic city of York, elegant Harrogate, vibrant Leeds or Skipton, which is regarded as the 'Gateway to the Dales', should you fancy a day out. This traditional village is well-situated for a variety of activities.
