    “We arrived at the cottage to be met by beautiful fresh flowers in an amazing lounge with log burner.”

    Into the immaculate kitchen to find fresh bread and butter milk and honey jam and marmalade cake and biscuits waiting for us. What a special touch. Lovely. The cottage lacked nothing. The WiFi was excellent with plenty of t.v channels. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need including a washing machine and full size cooker. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. Upstairs the bathroom with good powerful shower over the bath again was beautiful. The bed was so comfortable too. Towels and bed linen were of the highest standard as was everything else. Then the hot tub. WOW, What a bonus this was. Fired by logs it was amazing to sit in if of a night with a glass of wine after a day out walking . The area is beautiful as well, Plenty to do Lots of walks .Plenty of eateries in Holmfirth. We walked down about 20 mins and got a taxi back for a mere £4. Rod and Julie were great hosts nothing too much trouble. Highly recommend. Brilliant weeks stay. Margaret and Tom Cheshire

About the location

HOLMFIRTH

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.
