  • "A fantastic cottage to stay in, in terms of the standard of facilities at the cottage and the standard of the accommodation too."

    The cottage as it’s name states, overlooks a idillic river and is only 5 minute walk to the town centre of Holmfirth, which host a very good range of shops, bars and restaurants, many of which, like Riverview are dog friendly. Despite being located on a very busy road, the traffic and/or noise does not affect staying at Riverview Cottage, as the accommodation is situated at the rear of the property (entrance is via the main road) so this did impact our quality time at the cottage. Parking (free) is limited and what there is is on a first come first serve basis. There are pay to park car parks available nearby too. The owner who was excellent was more so due to helping us on where to park, places to eat and providing doggy treats, beds etc too. This was a very nice touch. Holmfirth is a lovely place to visit which provides excellent access to the Peak District and Riverview Cottage with its location and amenities makes it the ideal place to stay whilst there. We look forward to returning and we would definitely recommend staying there when in Holmfirth.

    We would very much recommend it. Excellent communications from/with the owner, who was very friendly and made us feel welcome. We used it as a base to explore museums and parks in about a 30-40 minute radius. Really nice places to eat in Holmfirth, too.

    Lovely walks by many reservoirs in the area only short drive away. Weather was great. Cottage itself lovely and cosy with everything we needed, except for the back garden, this cottage doesn’t have one. But I compensated for walking in the Victoria park every morning with my doggies. We had a small accident, but thanks to owner Tracy all been sorted. Thank you for our lovely stay. We would definitely recommend! P.s. doggies loved the fluffy doggie bed so much, that we came back and got them one, which they prioritise over other ones now!

    Holmfirth is a great base for many different walks and places of historical interest. The listing image is a bit misleading though, as the entrance is on a busy-ish road not the river path shown (that's the cottage below).

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Riverside Cottage."

    The property was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. Tracy was so helpful with sending information, it is obvious she wants her guests to enjoy their stay. This was made even more evident by the goodies found upon arrival (bacon, eggs, bread, milk & butter and a bottle of chilled prosecco). Holmfirth was a great location for exploring this part of the world and we managed to see and do a good variety of things during our weeks stay to satisfy both our teenage children and ourselves. Top marks all round!!

Two minor criticisms, the cutlery is really poor quality; also the table is tiny and as the cottage sleeps 6 it seems odd to only be able to seat 4, and that tightly on stools. We had a really lovely holiday and there are plenty of things to do nearby, walk maps and games are provided.

This includes towels, dog bowls, grooming brush and lots and lots of goodies! A hair dryer and straighteners are provided, along with an extension lead so that you can use the mirrors! (this is not the case in a lot of properties) A glass of fizz and chocolates awaits you, as well as all you need for a full english breakfast and a cup of tea or coffee.

    First of all the communication was excellent from the start and when we arrived it just got better! Little thing's like tea bags/coffee/sugar, (and even fresh milk in the fridge!), was a great start, (so we didn't have to go straight out to shop after a 5 hour drive!). Then there were also some breakfast goodies and even a bottle of fizz on arrival!! The cottage itself was so lovely, just as described, very clean, (with lovely fresh smelling bed-linen and soft towels). The Wi-fi was an added bonus as well as the "Alexa" (which kept my daughter entertained!) The "Doggie station" was another great touch! Normally when we stay away we tend to eat out most nights, but because the kitchen was so good and had everything there, we stayed in and cooked a fair bit and enjoyed the comfy/cosy feel of the place! (It was very cosy). The location of the property is ideal, just on the edge of town overlooking the river and rooftops, quiet and in easy reach of the shops etc. Beautiful surrounding countryside as well, plenty of great walks (particulaly the Digley/Ramsden Reservoir walks close by and over to Marsden/Pennine way) and close enough to "pop down" to the Peak district for days out. All in all a fantastic well needed break away with the family, (even the weather was kind, which make's a nice change for Yorkshire!!) We would like to extend our thanks again to Tracy the owner and wish her all the best for the future, we will definately be looking to stay there again!!!! THANK YOU!!

  • "Holmfirth is a small but thriving community with a surpisingly busy weekend food & pub scene and Riverview Cottage is set within a few minutes walk to all of the available amenities from tourist information, small shops, newsagents, tea rooms and a Sainsbury's store."

    We recommend walking up the hills on either side to get a view and perspective of the village. The cottage overlooks the small river that runs through this small town/village and we found the accommodation to be well designed to maximise the available space which was fine for a family of four. It was warm, spotless and a welcoming pack and bottle of "fizz" was thoughtful after travelling for a few hours. The owner kept in touch during our travel to assure us everything was "ready" and indeed it was. We had no need for any assistance other than advice for parking. Avoid any "Parking Permit" areas nearby (not always clearly marked) and all will be fine. An enjoyable family break. Thanks.

  • "Tracy was fantastic- a wonderful attentive host!"

    A beautiful, well presented cottage that has been lovingly decorated. The kitchen has everything you need and there are even some thoughtful extras to make your furry family members feel welcome! Very conveniently situated in Holmfirth. Loved being able to hear the babbling stream through the windows. Having 3 double beds was a real treat. The beds were all very comfortable and a great night sleep was had by all after long beautiful walks. I would highly recommend this cottage. Its brilliant for couples and families. Thank you Tracy for making our stay so memorable.

  • "What a wonderful place."

    Everything on your doorstep with only a short walk to shops and restaurants. The accommodation is outstanding with lovely little touches throughout, even for the dog ,from suggested dog walks to a doggy station. Adults are equally spoilt by the host with basics stocked in the fridge on our arrival and a bottle of bubbly on standby. Could not have asked for more excellent accommodation, excellent host, excellent holiday. Mrs Hepburn

    It was ideal as it’s just up the road from us and it looked great from the pictures. It was ideal, lovely and warm and cosy, everything brand new, carpets your feet sank into and very comfy beds. My mum said it was a lovely place and decorated to exception and the best equipped kitchen she has been in! I loved the mullion windows and the doggie cleaning station, brill idea. Some nice touches on arrival to make you feel at home and an excellent location. No need to move the car at all if you don’t wish to, everything is on your doorstep

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. 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.
