    The property was so nicely decorated and well equipped with more than you could ever need! Also arrived to a huge welcome pack of goodies - So thoughtful. The bed was extremely comfy and everything was just spotless! Ideal location, plenty of pubs and shops a five minute walk! We had never been to Holmfirth before and thought it was lovely, we will definitely be back. Thank you!!!

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 that 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 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.
