The property

This lovely little cottage is a five minute stroll from the bustling character town of Holmfirth with its quirky cobbled streets and traditional weaver's cottages.

The cottage is an annexe to the owner's home and is the perfect base for up to four guests who are looking to explore this beautiful area of Yorkshire within a mere stone's throw of the Peak District.

The twin bedroom together with a sofa bed makes this cottage a perfect choice for a couple, small family or friends.

The open plan living area is well-equipped with an electric fire to warm your toes in the evenings after spending the day discovering the walks available in the area.

You are ideally situated to discover Holmfirth which has a great selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and of course Sid's Café.

If you thought Holmfirth was all about 'Last of the Summer Wine' then think again, sitting in the heart of the Holme Valley this superb area is very popular with walkers and wildlife lovers alike.

Cyclists are in their element here as Holmfirth sits at the base of Holme Moss which was a major climb of the 2014 Tour de France.

The Picturedrome is one of the finest intimate music venues around; originally opened to the public in 1913 it has now had a new lease of life and is an extremely popular venue for both locals and visitors.

Being in such a fantastic setting, this cottage is sure to offer something to keep everyone entertained.

About the location

HOLMFIRTH

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.
