The property

Perched on the edge of the River Holme in the centre of Holmfirth town is the endearing Riverview Cottage.

This listed overdwelling cottage offers a welcoming retreat for a family or friends holiday to the heart of the wonderful Holme Valley.

After a day exploring the Peak District National Park, kick off your walking boots to be welcomed into an elegant dwelling, offering all the necessities for a relaxing evening in.

Head up the staircase to find a contemporary open-plan living room, which has retained many of its original features, including charming exposed beams and exposed brick walls.

In here, you can prepare all of your evening meals before heading to the dining table to catch up with your loved ones of an evening.

After an adventure-filled day you can look forward to sinking into one of the sofas, perched in front of the TV or simply take in the charming river views.

As the evening draws to a close, head back down the staircase to the ground-floor, where you will find two well-presented double bedrooms, each boasting quality furnishings to ensure a tranquil stay.

On the second-floor, you will also find a mezzanine bedroom, which is perfect for any additional guests.

If you fancy a special treat one evening, a short stroll will bring you to a selection of pubs and restaurants, as well as a wealth of shops for picking up the necessities.

To keep you busy whilst staying here, you will find the stunning moorland of the Peak District National Park within striking distance, offering an array of pastimes to suit all ages and tastes.

Alternatively, brush up on the local history by visiting the nearby Last of The Summer Wine Exhibition or visit The National Coal Mining Museum.

Chatsworth House, which is the home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire is well worth visiting and is a pleasant drive away.

Riverview Cottage promises a superb retreat for a family getaway.

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.
