  • "A truly lovely apartment in the heart of a beautiful town that has everything."

    The hosts were lovely, and the apartment set to a very high standard with all amenities and comfort a couple would ever need. We will be back.... X

    Lovely to hear, thanks so much. You will have to try Up Top next time! Same standards but a different perspective Property Owner

  • "Wonderful, cosy but modern apartment in a really great location."

    Everything we needed was provided, we were warm and comfortable during a chilly break, and felt so relaxed. The welcome treats were so kind and generous. It's lovely to stay in a pet friendly place which is so clean and provides throws to protect the furniture if needed. Also, the whole town welcomes dogs and has a very friendly vibe. It's a lovely place to explore and the owner was kind enough to offer us early check-in and make us aware of Christmas events happening when we stayed. Literally 2 minutes walk to a great chippy and the Picturedrome for gigs.

    Other than that a perfect 10 ++++++++++++++++++++ loved our stay

    Hello, so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks so much for your comments, unfortunately as storage space is at a premium as it only sleeps 2, we decided against providing a mop as it would have to be on show! And we have had so few requests for a microwave, we think the worktop space is far more useful, but we will definitely review the situation and thanks for bringing it up Property Owner

    What a fabulous find. Perfect location for enjoying walks and even better that we only had to take the car out a couple of times as most of the walks started locally. The information books in the chest were a godsend. Loads of lovely touches including treats (I needed the walks), flowers and coffee. The cottage was exceptionally clean, super comfortable and had everything you could need. Only slight issue was being only 5ft 2 I did struggle with the bedroom mirror but my husband said I looked just fine and I would never argue with him. Might even be tempted to return. We would highly recommend.

    Ah thank you for the lovely review. Property Owner

    The only downside is that it's located on a very busy main road, no outside space for the dog. Still warrants 10 out of 10 but I think this should be mentioned. Everything else was perfect. Thank you.

    The welcome pack was lovely with lots of little treats,the owner even took into consideration for our dog with his own treats and extra doggie requirements ie dog food,poo bags, and even his very own toy (which he loved). Had we known the building was on a very busy road leading straight onto very narrow footpath. Not great with a dog (not the cottage owners fault). We would have reconsidered our booking. I would recommend the owners to provide a small mop & bucket so that holiday makers can clean the floor from muddy paws. That said we would return as Holmfirth is a beautiful little town.

  • "A lovely warm welcoming compact accommodation ."

    At first we both thought how small but by the end of second day we loved our little home for 7 days. Perfect for our lovely dog Lacey the uncarpeted floors were a blessing so easy to clean. The best part of the house for me was the bedroom with river right outside flowing fast past our window with the window open a delightful sound to fall asleep to. The bed was very comfortable and big. The bathroom with walk in shower was perfect to as was the colour lighting if you so wished. The vegan treats left by Amanda was soo kind and welcome . It rained most of the time but didn't stop us getting out and about. If you turn left from the house and walk about 1.5 miles you come to the Pickled Pheasant I think it's called serves cake and coffee dogs are welcome and from there many walks. We even ran there and back one day it is uphill all the way but manageable for someone in their late 60s and 70s. We also had several evenings in the winking stag ha I think that was the name just over the road from the house again dogs allowed. The area itself is very busy if you like that sort of thing but doesn't take long to find peace. There is a park very close opposite side of road Victoria Park Lacey loved climbing the steps. All in all a lovely Xmas week great communication with owner Amanda and lots of nice touches in her home. Thank you

    Amanda's house was clean, comfortable, well laid out and had all that we needed for a perfect week in Holmfirth. There's no parking at the property itself but, after unloading, we used the nearby 'Council offices' car park which costs £2.80 a day via RingGo (location 84130). Lots of shops, bars and restaurants in Holmfirth and a large Co-op supermarket too. On a sunny weekend the cricket club is well worth a visit if there's a game on.

    We even ventured to cook 3 course meals on the days we didn’t eat out - spoilt for choice. During this visit on some days I was also working from ‘Holiday-home’ as it were - the internet connection is fab - bonus ! We discovered how to change the coloured mood lighting against the stone walls in the shower room ! Everything is spotlessly clean but even so the cupboards are well stocked with cleaning products should you need them. What we like about OUC is that you don’t need to pack and bring along all the additional items such as hairdryer, towels, tea towels, tin foil, cooking oil, salt as it’s already there along with a starter pack of tea, coffee, milk and sugar. There’s even a coffee machine with a few complimentary pods. It’s a lovely flat in the centre of Holmfirth- small but perfectly formed (lots of nice touches) so doesn’t take alot of up keep - you can just be - in comfort- wind down - the windows open listening to the flow of the river after a day of walking and visiting the local area. We will be back !

The property

Set in the heart of Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, you will find this charming ground-floor apartment.

Over-Under Cottage is located on one floor of a five storey mill workers cottage along with Up-Top Cottage (1099655) above.

It has been lovingly renovated to perfectly blend its contemporary decor and furnishings with some of the property's original features.

Over-under properties are unique to this area and from the exterior this charming home appears to be an everyday terrace house, but after entering the front door at street level you will find that once you glance out of the bedroom window at the back of the house, with delightful views over the River Holme, you are three storeys up!

Ideal for a romantic getaway, be welcomed into an open-plan living space the moment you step through the door, with a well-equipped kitchen wonderfully appointed to the front of the cottage.

Choose this self-catering property and look forward to cooking up a storm, you’ll never be short of supplies with four quality farm shops stocking fantastic Yorkshire produce, all within a ten mile radius.

After a day of adventure, curl up with your partner on the chaise lounge sofa and tune into the wall-mounted TV with complementary Netflix account, and WiFi for all your entertainment needs.

The charm continues in the ground-floor bedroom and shower room with its original stone walls adding a wealth of character to the decor.

Once the evening draws to a close, retire to the super-king-size bedroom located to the rear which has sliding doors separating this room from the living space for some extra privacy.

Get some much needed rest here and take advantage of the deluxe shower room where you can prepare for your day in style.

This accommodation is entirely pet-friendly and is well-worth bringing your furry companion with you for the trip as you are in close proximity to numerous local walks from your doorstep, the Peak District National Park is just over the hill and there are abundant reservoirs with excellent opportunities for walking, cycling and hiking, particularly at Digley, Ramsden and Windscar - all within a couple of miles.

Just a few minutes walk from your front door and you’ll be in Holmfirth’s lively town centre with its wealth of pubs and bars serving real ale and local craft beers, including the new Magic Rock Bar housed in a former bank, if you don’t fancy cooking there are a fantastic range of eateries covering breakfast, lunch and dinner and just a short drive away or a lazy evening walk along the river you’ll find the award winning Devour restaurant.

Over-under Cottage is a delightful retreat for couples seeking to explore all of West Yorkshire's finest delights.

About the location


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 Batty’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.
