The cottage

Holmfirth 1.5 miles.

Situated near the quaint West Yorkshire town of Holmfirth, this traditional 100 year old terraced cottage sleeps up to four people.

With ample walking opportunities and boasting character features, this property is perfect for a country escape with the family.

On entering the property there is a small porch area, perfect for removing muddy walking boots, before stepping into a stylishly decorated living area featuring exposed beams, a woodburning stove and Smart TV.

Through the lounge there is a dining area for four people, meaning you can enjoy traditional family dinners in the evening, whilst catching up with the day’s events.

The kitchen is tiled with modern appliances, so you can easily rustle up a delicious home-cooked meal for the whole family and have direct access to an enclosed garden via a set of patio doors.

Upstairs you will find two double bedrooms, one of which overlooks the valley at the front of the property, and both have a selection of contemporary furnishings to store your personal items.

The family bathroom has an elegant bath with a shower over, so you can enjoy a relaxing soak in the tub after a tiring day.

Looking at the surrounding area, you won't be surprised to hear that this property has countless walking opportunities, particularly due to its proximity to the Peak District National Park.

Discover a plethora of countryside sites, which offer walking, cycling and hiking opportunities, whilst getting to discover some hidden gems along the way.

It is half a mile to the closest pubs, two of which have been featured on the television show, Last of the Summer Wine.

For a spot of culture, visit the wonderful Ashley Jackson Gallery, home to a number of the most successful landscape watercolourists of the surrounding area.

Return to your quaint country cottage for a relaxing evening with your loved ones.

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.
